and I have been enjoying my holiday food and especially all of the wonderful recipes from The Pioneer Woman. She makes delicious food, but unfortunately, neither my husband nor I expend the calories that a cattle rancher does. So I’ve spent today trying to figure out where I can come up with some delicious recipes for the new year that are delicious and healthy and not so chock full of butter and cream.
I remembered a show at one time on The Food Network featuring a chef named Ellie Krieger but she’s no longer on their network. She’s now on the The Cooking Channel. So I navigated over there and then accidentally found “Not My Momma’s Meals” featuring Bobby Dean. His show is all about lightening up Paula Deen’s recipes. I love her recipes (another butter and cream lady), so I’ve set it to DVR regularly and started watching the first one now.
He made over Paula’s Fried Apple Pies with a baked apple pie featuring a whole wheat pie crust with flaxseed meal and pecans. I’ll be trying it right away. I’ve been trying to find a whole wheat crust recipe for a while. I’ll post pics as soon as I’ve tried it.
Here’s the recipe in case you want to try it with me. Bobby Dean’s Whole Wheat Pie Crust
How are you changing your cooking strategies for the new year?
