Fiber is good. We need fiber. It helps with weight loss because it keeps you full longer, plus it keeps your blood sugar stable. So it makes sense that morning is the best time to have a healthy, high fiber meal. But this does not mean eating something that tastes like toasted particle board or a bowl of spackle! With me, it means light and fluffy pancakes.
Yes, even 100% whole grain pancakes can be light and fluffy if you use buttermilk – real buttermilk from the store, not the one they SAY you can make by adding lemon juice to a cup of milk – hogwash! That is not a substitute for buttermilk, it’s only a cup of lemon-flavored milk. So get some real buttermilk and make my easy, light & fluffy, delicious, healthy whole grain pancakes. And here’s even better news: You can use extra-light olive oil… or canola… or any oil of your choice. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones
Surya asks… Hello Jenny. I wanted to know the brand of the kettle corn that you use to make the paper bag popcorn and where can i purchase it, in your youtube video channel? Thank you.
It’s not kettle corn that I use, it’s just plain popping corn so any brand should work. My choice is Orville Redenbacher’s Original which comes in a large plastic jar and all the grocery stores here seem to carry it. For the paper bag/microwave method, use only plain popping corn and not kettle corn or any kind of popping corn with anything added. The ingredient list should only read “popping corn” and nothing else. When I made the video, I used White Cat brand but it became too hard to find and I actually think the Orville brand is better. – Jenny Jones
Why do I love my healthy chocolate cupcakes? First off, there are only two tablespoons of butter in all twelve cupcakes. Second, these healthy cupcakes are made with canola oil or you can use extra-light olive oil (both are heart-healthy). You won’t even need eggs for this easy recipe. And I mean easy. It’s another of my one-bowl recipes that I know you’ll make again.
Cupcakes are like having your own personal mini cake. There’s no need to have loads of butter when these dark, chocolate-y, rich-tasting cupcakes are so light, you’ll never feel stuffed after eating one… or two! Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones
If you want to make the best, easiest, most amazing, never fail, Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs, try my easy recipe. If you’re grilling this 4th of July, or even if you’re not, these sweet, tender ribs are just as good baked entirely in the oven (this photo was from my oven-baked ribs) or they can be finished on the grill.
The key to tender ribs is to first cook them at least 2 1/2 hours in a slow oven, and then finish them with your favorite sauce. Lemon juice tenderizes the meat as well. I cut the ribs apart before cooking because once they are cooked, they are so tender they might fall apart when you try to cut them.
This is one of my best recipes and my all time summer favorite thing to make. Use your own rub and your own favorite sauce, or mine. Either way, you will love these ribs! Have a great 4th of July, everyone! Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones
