Good Morning Everyone,

Last year when Martha was on, she gave a coffee cake recipe and everyone seemed to like it, so she came with another one this year.

This recipe looks great. I have everything except the nuts, and i think I would like to add almonds. As soon as I get to the store and buy the nuts I'll be making this.

I love any recipes with fruit. My second request would be side dishes with vegetables.

Good Morning Doreen,

Thank you very much. I know Martha appreciates your telling her what recipes you are interested in. It is hard for Martha and Jean to pick something out. Now you are giving them a help.

Good Morning! This recipe looks yummy! I would personally be interested in seeing side dish recipes and veggie recipes along with some pie recipes - My hubby is definitely a man who loves his pies and I am to please!

Thank you.........Chris

Hi Chris,

I know Jean has some of the recipes you wanted for the Easter recipes. She found her recipe for the pie you wanted. I will make note for what you would like from Martha. It is a great help to her.

Hi Martha, do you think it would be ok to substitute apple sauce for the oil+use Splenda instead of regular sugar? Family member is diabetic. Thanks+blessings to you+your family, Carol

Hi Carol,
I got a hold of Martha and she said she wasn't sure about subsituting apple sauce for oil, but Splenda would be fine instead of regular sugar.

Being border line diabetic,I know that in the grocery store there are certain oils that you can buy that are okay for diabetics. They don't say for diabetic but the cholesterol, sodium, etc. are low or zero. The one I have is from Wegman's ( a chain grocery in our area) and is made of 100 per cent soybean. There are other brands you can get in most grocery stores.

sounds wonderful!

I would like to see some good pasta recipes or fresh veggie, and dips if she has any.

thank you both.

Hi Annie,

I will see that Martha gets your requests. I think she has some recipes of dips as she was talking about them the other day. Most all want veggie recipes. I will tell her about the pasta too.
