Recipe News: Simple ways to lighten up traditional recipes

Meatloaf, chocolate cake, blueberry muffins — there’s nothing better than good, old-fashioned comfort food ... unless you’re trying to eat healthier.

OK, put down the celery stick and stop crying. With a few simple substitutions, you can not only make traditional recipes healthier, you can have your cake and eat it, too (and what good is cake if you can’t eat it?).

You can make any recipe healthier by reducing the amount of fat, salt and sugar and increasing the fiber. All it takes is a little trial and error.

“My parents love meatloaf, and I make it with turkey instead of ground beef to lighten up the traditional recipe,” said Cindy Brown, of Asheville. “You get a lot of the flavor without the fat.”

Includes recipes for:


  • Healthy meatloaf

  • Lemon-raspberry muffins

Recipe News: Timeless treats from the past

I have a number of old Canadian cookbooks given to me by family and friends or scooped up at flea markets. I have old church cookbooks, some community ones and a special treasure: The Home Cookbook, published in 1887 by the “Ladies of Toronto and chief cities and towns in Canada.”

On June 7, I plan to take them into Liz Driver at The Cookbook Store (850 Yonge St.) in Toronto. From 1 to 3 p.m., she will be assessing the historical value of old cookbooks. Liz is the curator of Campbell House Museum in Toronto, the former president of the Culinary Historians of Ontario and the author of Culinary Landmarks: A Bibliography of Canadian Cookbooks, 1825-1949 (University of Toronto Press).

The canny housewives of the 19th and early 20th centuries were the forerunners of how we wish to eat today.

They purchased fresh seasonal ingredients, often organic and straight from the farm, and used simple, tasty cooking methods, as their surprisingly good original recipes reveal.

Includes recipes for:


  • ICEBOX COOKIES

  • ORANGE MARMALADE BREAD

  • FRIED CHICKEN

  • ORANGE MARMALADE BREAD
