oven to 400 deg F.
In a mixing bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder, and salt.
In another bowl, combine 1/3 cup of the sugar with the melted butter
until it dissolves. Stir in the milk, then combine the wet with the
dry ingredients and work together to form a soft dough. Turn the
dough out onto a well-floured board and knead for a minute or so.

lightly oiled pie pans. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until dough is
In the meantime, combine the crushed strawberries with the remaining
3 T sugar in a small bowl. Cover until ready to use.
Allow the baked dough to cool until it is just warm to the touch.
Place 1 round on a serving plate, spread it with the berries, and top
with the other round of dough. Cut into wedges to serve; this is best

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 guidlines:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins.
If you have converted your tasty chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, it would be crazy to put in those high carbohydrate normal chocolate. Cut up a low carb bar of chocolate into tiny pieces and use that in its place.
* Don't skip meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbs are a very efficient source of energy. A low carbohydrate diet requires great care in controlling your intake of energy, as any energy contributed by fat or protein is much slower acting.
