Cheddar Fans Recipe
5 oz cheddar, sharp, grated
2 cup unbleached flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter or shortening
1/2 cup milk
1 butter, softened
1 butter, melted
Grease the bottoms of 12 muffin pan cups. Grate the cheese into a
bowl, if not already grated and set aside. Sift the flour, baking
powder and salt into a bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry
blender or two knives, until the mixture resembles coarse corn meal.
Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the milk all at once.
Stir with a fork until the dough forms a ball. Gently form the dough
into a ball and put on a lightly floured surface. Knead it lightly
with the fingertips 10 or 15 times. Roll the dough into a 12 X
10-inch rectangle about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into 5 strips and spread
with the softened butter. Sprinkle four strips with the grated
cheddar cheese and stack the four on top of one another and top with
the fifth strip. Cut into 12 equal pieces and place on end in the
muffin cups. Brush the tops of the rolls with the melted butter. Bake
at 450 degrees F. for 10 to 15 minutes or until the biscuits are
golden brown. Serve hot with butter. Makes 1 dozen Cheddar Fans.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Make low carb breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
While you can sometimes buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you can make them yourself by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in the oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well browned, grind it in your blender. Store in an airtight jar or container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is precious little definitive proof published, allyl sulphides are also believed to help with colds, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so you should add them to your diet system.
