Courtyard Sour Cream-Raisin Pie Recipe
1 cup granulated sugar
8 oz sour cream
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 cup raisins
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 pastry for a 9-inch
1 double-crust pie
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp granulated sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs.
Beat in the sugar, sour cream, cinnamon, salt and cloves. Stir in the
raisins and flour. Roll out the bottom crust to fit a 9-inch pie
plate. Ease into the pie plate; trim even with the edge. Pour the
raisin mixture into the pastry-lined plate. Roll out the top crust
and arrange over the filling. Seal and flute the edge. Brush the top
of the pie with milk; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Cut slits so
that steam can escape. Cover the edge of the pie with foil. Bake for
25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 20 to 25 minutes more, or
until the pastry is golden and the filling is bubbly.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Although you can sometimes buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is toast the low carb bread in the oven on a cookie sheet. When it is well browned, whizz it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in a tupperware container.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes grapefruit, red bell peppers and sweet gourd)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. This chemical is responsible for the vivid red colour of a good number of food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, it is not damaged if it is cooked, but is really increased in efficacy by being cooked.
Its most valuable value is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to help to lower the chances of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most efficacious fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also thought by many experts to block the development of atherosclerosis.
