Applesauce for Oil

When baking, I use applesauce instead of oil. I get the packs of individual sized applesauce so that I don't waste opening a can or jar and the rest goes bad. YUM!

SPRING STEAMED GREENS or RAABS

I eat at least one bunch of steamed spring greens like kale, collards, stinging nettles etc, each day. This time of the year market fresh greens are sweet and delicious.

Greek Yogurt

I make my own greek yogurt by purchasing whatever skim milk yogurt without gelatin is on sale. I use the basket type coffee filters and a strainer to drain it 3 or 4 hours.
