I read, enjoy, and copy some recipes from every day. I am a many year and totally insulin dependent diabetic person. In regard to a persons submission on carbohydrates, food content labels show in bigger dark print the total carbohydrate content. The lighter, and usually offset printing, shows the type of carbohydrates contained within the total carbohydrates. One can always subtract fiber carbohydrates from the total to find the number one needs to consider. The body does not distinguish sugar carbs from ordinary carbs. In other words, a carb is a carb, except for fiber. Don in AZ.....

Anise Slices
There's only a little of it, but anise is the star of this dessert. This is terrific if you like the licorice flavor of the anise.

7 C. all-purpose flour
7 tsp. baking powder
2 C. sugar
2 C. vegetable oil
7 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. anise extract or 1/4 C. ouzo
sesame seeds (optional)

Sift flour and baking powder in bowl. Set aside. Combine sugar, oil, eggs, salt and extract in large electric mixer bowl. Beat at high speed 10 minutes or until light and creamy. Remove bowl from mixer. Gradually add the sifted flour, folding with spatula until flour is blended into a soft dough. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease three 13x11-inch cookies sheets. Divide dough into six equal portions and place on well-oiled surface. Shape each portion into a 13x2-inch slightly flattened loaf. Place two loaves about two inches apart on each cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake 25 minutes or until done. Remove from oven. Slice each loaf, crosswise, into 3/4-inch thick pieces and spread apart on cookie sheet. Return to oven and bake 10 minutes longer until lightly golden.

I am so happy that the dough is one that is soft. I know a lot of Italian's made fig cookies for Christmas, however, their dry, hard and no taste. I am going to try making fig cookies from your recipe. Thanks so much for sharing this with me.
God bless, Fran, Utica, NY

For Bill, Ala thank you so much for your
low carb tips. As a relatively new diabetic I appreciate it very much. If you haven't already found it, you can go to www.netrition.com and click on baking category. You will find Carbquik which I have ordered. Works just like Bisquick but doesn't raise my blood sugar. Also, pork rinds are great !
Have a great day, Barb in Ohio

Hi Lynn in FL/WI.

This is in regards to your Pumpkin Cake recipe from the 2/11/13 news letter. Your cake sounds so good and I want to try it but before I do I was wondering what size can of pumpkin you use and do you use the small size box of pudding?
Thanks, Charyl L in WI.

 Caulflower Rice

One Cauliflower head.

Remove outside leaves, and any bad spots. (I slice the core thinly, and fry like potatoes)

Cut the Cauliflower into smaller pieces that would easily fit through the feeder of a food processor.

Using the small grater attachment, feed the Cauliflower through the food processor until it is about the size of rice.

Place the grated Cauliflower in a microwave safe dish. and microwave on high for 5 minute. Cover with a lid or some plastic wrap with a few holes punched in it to let steam escape.

Use as a replacement for Rice when it is called for, and covered with a sauce, I like it with butter, and a pinch of flavored salt. Also, I have used Pace Salsa, Ragu Sauce, and Spaghetti sauce on the "rice".

The following link explains about the hotter temps on the newer slow cookers. It's another manifestation of the 'nanny' state looking out for us------when we are quite capable of taking care of ourselves.

I got this by searching the internet, and there were lots of articles.

 Parmesan Chicken

The best Chicken Parmesan recipe ever. Chicken parts dipped in melted butter, dredged in bread crumbs and Parmesan, and baked until crisp.

1 clove garlic, minced
1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup or 1/4 pound), melted
1 cup dried bread crumbs (Pork Rinds, crushed for Low
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (or 2/3 cup if you are using a Microplane zester)
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
A large pinch of Italian seasoning (herb mix)
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 lbs of skinless, boneless, chicken meat, cut into pieces no larger than 2x2 inches

Preheat oven to 450°F. Pat the chicken pieces dry with paper towels.

In a bowl, combine the minced garlic with the melted butter. In another bowl mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, salt, garlic salt, Italian

Place coated chicken pieces on to a 9x13 baking dish. Try to leave a little room between each piece. Drizzle with remaining garlic butter and bake uncovered 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Note that the chicken will get much more browned on the bottom side than on the top.
Yield: Serves 4-6.
