A surprise snow day this morning had me baking a surprise breakfast for myself and my daughters. This lemon-scented cornbread is subtly sweet and dotted with juicy blueberries. Partnered with orange juice, it makes a great start to the day, but it’s equally good as an anytime coffee cake or homey dessert. Don’t have blueberries? The basic recipe works well with other berries, particularly blackberries, raspberries, or chopped strawberries. It’s delicious as is, but can be fancied up with lemon sauce or curd, jam, whipped cream, yogurt, or ice cream. For the ultimate indulgence, sprinkle a cinnamon crumb mixture over top before baking (equal parts flour, quick oats, brown sugar, your choice of fat, and a little ground cinnamon).
Howdy low-so friends! Hope you’re enjoying a healthy, happy holiday season.
It’s been 3 weeks since I returned from my big road trip south, and I’ve been super busy catching up with everything that accumulated in my absence, as well as cooking, shopping, wrapping for, and (most importantly) ENJOYING Christmas.
Now that the big day is over, I want to get back to updating this website. In the past several months, I’ve fielded multiple questions and/or requests for the (once available) Trader Joe’s Low Sodium Products List. From my research, it appears that in late 2013 the list was removed from the Trader Joe’s website. Why? I have no idea. But good news! I have a copy! which is reproduced below. It was last updated in November 2013, so some products may be obsolete, but many are still being sold. I urge you to check individual products prior to purchase to ensure they are indeed low sodium (140 milligrams per serving).
PLEASE NOTE: I’d like to keep this list as up-to-date as possible and welcome your help. If you notice any discontinued products or new additions to the list, please feel free to comment below and let me know! THANKS.
YES! Another cookie recipe!!!
Before you healthy types start grumbling, let me state several reasons for posting back-to-back cookie recipes.
1) These may be my favorite cookies of all time (too close to call).
2) I made them yesterday and therefore have a fresh photo to share.
3) I leave next week for Hotlanta. This is likely my last post before I get back, and I want it to be good. This is a great recipe for the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities. It makes a boatload of cookies (6 DOZEN!), perfect for sharing with friends and family, freezing for later consumption, trading at a holiday cookie swap, sending home with strangers, donating to a local soup kitchen, or just filling your fat pants (we all have them, no shame).
4) They are freaking delicious. They are almost sodium free. What more do you need?
