Several sugar-free spreads can be made to use on scones, bread and toast (Pritikin). Toppings can be used on desserts.
1/2 roast is not complete without gravy, so 1/2 recipe has been included to accompany roasted meat. Several sauce recipes, both sweet and savoury, are also included. These are very simple and quick to make in the microwave oven.
