We started the fats unit today. So we made a "normal" cupcake (right) and a low fat cupcake (left). To make a low-fat cupcake we used applesauce in place of the oil and we substituted egg whites for the egg yolks. Most students preferred the low fat cupcakes.

Simple Carbs vs Complex Carbs

In Foods we did an experiment identifying if certain foods are simple carbohydrates or if they are complex carbohydrates. Here are a couple of shots...


In Foods we have been learning about yeast breads and quick breads. Here are a couple of the labs we have done practicing the concepts:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip and Orange Cranberry-

The perfect muffin....

This group saved some of their chocolate chips to sprinkle on top of their muffins...

 Here are some Italian Cheese Bread sticks... this group didn't follow the directions, but the still turned out yummy.
