(NAPSA)—For many families, baking
holiday treats together is one of the most
delightful traditions of the season.
One way to make family holiday memo-
ries even sweeter may be to substitute hon-
ey for sugar, according to the Sioux Honey
Association Co-op.
There are many reasons, including the
way baking with honey produces a golden
crust, a distinctive fl avor and a moister tex-
ture. Honey also provides healthful benefi ts.
For example, honey contains more complex
sugars, producing smaller fl uctuations in
blood sugar and insulin levels. Another ben-
efi t is you can use less honey to achieve the
same amount of sweetness.
Honey-Substituting Suggestions
Here’s how:
• For each cup of sugar, use 1/2 to 2/3
cup of honey. You can use a 1:1 ratio for most
yeast breads, muffi ns and pancakes.
• For each cup of honey, subtract 1/4 cup
of other liquids. Honey is about 20 percent
water, and you need to reduce the total
amount of liquid in the recipe.
• Add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda for
every 1 cup of honey. Add it even if the
recipe doesn’t call for it. Honey is naturally
acidic, and baking soda helps baked goods
with honey properly rise.
• Reduce the temperature of the oven
by 25° F. The higher sugar content in honey
caramelizes and burns faster than sugar.

Holiday Honey Cookies
1 1/2 cups fl our
3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup Sue Bee Honey
1 tsp vanilla
Combine fl our and butter in mixer un-
til fi ne. Drizzle in honey and vanilla while
pulsing until mixture pulls together. Roll
out and cut into desired shapes with
cookie cutters. Bake at 300° F for 10–15
minutes.
Celebrate the holidays with sweet,
home-baked treats.
12 ounces white chocolate chips
1/4–1/3 cup evaporated milk per 12
ounces of chocolate chips
24 pretzel rods
1 bottle of red sprinkles
1 bottle of green sprinkles
In separate, microwave-safe bowls,
microwave white and dark chocolate
chips 1 minute and stir with a spatula.
Once melted, mix in honey. Then add
evaporated milk until chocolate reaches
dipping consistency. Dip one pretzel rod
in chocolate; spread chocolate halfway
up the rod with a knife and let excess run
off. Over a piece of waxed paper, drizzle
sprinkles onto the pretzel; then move to
another piece of waxed paper to cool.
Do the same with the white chocolate
and repeat until all pretzels are covered;
half dark chocolate, half white chocolate.
Place the pretzel on waxed paper in the
refrigerator for 2 hours to cool and dry
completely. After completely dry, store in
an airtight container and enjoy.
Adding to their goodness, these treats
are made with honey from the Sioux Honey
Association Co-op. Established in 1921, it
now includes over 290 independent bee-
keepers across America.

Brought to you by this newspaper in partnership with
(NAPSA)—Finding time to cook a
healthy dinner for the whole family to enjoy
can be a challenge.
With a little planning and advance prep,
however, making a family dinner can be a
cinch. Here are six ways to get ahead of the
curve:
• Create a weekly menu.
• Keep it simple with easy-to-prepare
meals that can be made quickly or in ad-
vance.
• Write up your grocery list and do the
shopping all at once rather than making nu-
merous trips to the grocery store through-
out the week.
• As you’re unloading the groceries, wash
and dry the fruit and veggies and store in re-
sealable bags.
• Prep dinner early in the morning before
the day gets hectic.
• Keep your pantry well stocked with
items such as canned tuna, canned toma-
toes, and Lindsay olives, capers and peppers,
so you can throw together a quick and tasty
pasta or a dinner salad.
Then try these no-fuss, easy-to-make
dinner ideas:
• Combine bone-in chicken breasts with
equal parts water, chicken stock and canned
tomatoes in your slow cooker. Add chopped
carrots, onions and celery. Cook low and
slow all day. About an hour before dinner,
remove chicken from slow cooker and add
one package of frozen corn and one can
of pinto beans. While the corn and beans
are heating, shred the chicken using two
forks and return to the soup. Serve soup in
warmed bowls and garnish with green and
black olives, cilantro, avocado, green onions,
wedges of lime and shredded jack cheese.
Serve with a simple green salad.
• Assemble a quick sheet pan dinner
by creating a fl avorful base using a good
amount of green and black olives, halved
cherry tomatoes, and a small handful or two
of capers. Drizzle with a good glug of Lind-
say Buttery California Extra Virgin Olive Oil,
season lightly with salt and black pepper,
and toss so veggies are well coated. Lay a
fl aky white fi sh fi llet of your choice on top
of the veggies and drizzle with more olive
oil and salt and pepper. Scatter a few sprigs
of thyme on top. Store in the fridge until din-
ner time, then bake until fi sh is done. Serve
with a tossed green salad and crusty French
bread.
• Then there’s the popular, the ultimate
make-ahead meal: bubbly, gooey, creamy,
comfy casseroles, whether it’s baked ziti,
tuna casserole, turkey tetrazzini—the op-
tions are nearly endless and you’re sure to
please just about everyone. Throw in a green
salad and you’ve got a delicious dinner.
