This is a great compromise between making familiar foods less unhealthy, and still using most of the same ingredients so you don't feel like you've thrown in the towel on your old favorites.

I was just glancing through this one, and i found several things id like to try after all! Now to figure out how to make a gluten free bread that wont ruin their healthy version of a Monte Cristo sandwich... with grape jelly of course... now we're talkin' comfort food!
