Ever ruined something by trying to turn it healthy?
Have you ever ruined a recipe by trying to make it a little healthier? It's embarrassing but I'll bet it's happened to a lot of us: You look at something you want to make and then you're blown away by how much butter it has. In an effort to avert a coronary, you cut it back a little bit-- only to discover that all that butter is what made it good. Any stories of trying to cut back or substitute a delicious but unhealthy ingredient, only to find that the result was bad food?
