Kitchen Parade & Weight Watchers Freestyle: What a Match!

The day has finally arrived! Last night I "flipped the switch" and Kitchen Parade's Weight Watchers recipe page is now sorted by Freestyle points!

Strawberry Milk

A simple sweet 'n' frothy mix of summer strawberries and milks, something creamier and more strawberry-y than a strawberry smoothie, something akin to a strawberry milkshake. Just five ingredients!

Red Quinoa Salad

Another Concept Recipe, Make It Your Way
A healthy grain salad recipe that starts with red quinoa (don't worry, regular white quinoa works too, so would another grain), a few vegetables for crunch, a sprinkle of fresh herbs for brightness, a handful of feta cheese for creaminess, all tossed in an easy vinaigrette. This will be my go-to salad for the summer, protein-packed, fiber-good and eminently variable. But make it your way, it's a "concept recipe" — easily adapted to what you like, what's seasonal in your world, what you have on hand, what sounds good to you!

DIY Substitute for Baker’s Joy

A simple three-ingredient substitute for Baker's Joy, the baking spray I've relied on for many, many years. If you've got cake plans for Easter, give this easy mix a try. Join me in ditching the Baker's Joy! ~ Skip Straight to the Recipe ~


No Sugar. No Cornstarch. No Bittersweet Chocolate. No Baker's Joy. No ...In a rush of baking last week, my usually well-stocked pantry failed me. At every turn, some critical ingredient was in short supply ... or entirely o-u-t out.Some substitutes came easily. Brown Sugar. Potato Starch. Baking Chocolate.But a good substitute for Baker's Joy left me stymied. A double batch of Spiced Honey Cake batter was already mixed and I well remember that even with Baker's Joy, some times the sweet cake is finicky to release. I had little confidence that even an extra-good rub of butter and flour would be enough.
