    What I'm interested in is how to make really delicious food — like the black and white cookies you just posted about — but make them in a way that is healthy enough that you can give them to your kids.

    Our eating habits have changed so much since having children and learning about nutrition. For one thing, we bake almost exclusively with whole grain flours. We also try to avoid refined sugar. This can work great with something like carrot cake (especially if you cheat and put powdered sugar, cream cheese, and coconut in the frosting) but it sometimes–often?–doesn't work. So, I'd love to see ways to MODIFY recipes to make them at least a little healthier.

    I make killer pancakes that I sometimes sneak broccoli into. No one notices (I cook it and then blend it and only put in a little) and they always disappear. I know that must sound horrible to a foodie but it actually works amazingly well. In any case, that's the kind of thing I'd love to read about.

    Funny you should ask for that, Jennifer–just yesterday Harry and I baked some brownies with my favorite, most decadently fudgy recipe. We swapped in whole wheat pastry flour & ground flaxseed to up the healthy factor, and they tasted faaaabulous. But they still have a whole stick of butter in them, so I'm going to tweak further on that front before I write them up. Stay tuned!
