Old Business There was no old busi- ness to report on. New Business Pat Scholer attended to- night's meeting to bring a deal sight called Yip Deals in front of the board. Pat suggested this as an option for the boosters to become involved in that would make money for the club with no work on the part of the board. Pat indicated that this is a sight that when people purchase things from businesses, the business opts to donate 12% of that purchase to a charity. Pat indicated that the booster club could choose to be one of those businesses. When people purchase goods off the website, they can choose the booster club as their charity of choice. Pat's job would be to contact people and businesses to make them aware of this option. The board is going to go out onto the website (yipdealsiowa.com) and look at the concept and will make a decision at the next meeting. Pat Scholer also report- ed that he would like to set up a Facebook page for the boosters as feels it would be a good way for the group to be recognized. Tim Stephany reported that the baseball team is asking for their annual re- quest for sponsorship for $150. In turn, the baseball team would put up a ban- ner in the outfield with the booster club name on it. A motion was made by Sta- cy Rosonke to approve this expenditure, seconded by Scot Meuler. Motion car- ried. Adjournment Motion was made by A1 Lammers to adjourn the meeting, seconded by Scot Meuler. Motion carried. Meeting was adjourned at 7:37p.m. The next NABC meet- ing will be held Wednes- day, March 27, 2013 at 7 p.m. at the Norwalk High School Library.

According to Carol Kidnski, gluten-free, recipe developer, food writer and TV chef, it's important to know that no sin- gle flour can replace all-pur- pose wheat flour. It requires a combination of gluten-free flours, starch flour and gums to produce the same result. For a pasha-quality gluten- free flour blend;pick a flour blend that is high in starch. Also, gluten-free baked goods don't brown as quickly as regular flour goods---so be careful not to overbake. If the gluten-free dough breaks up while you roll it out for cookies---no worries. Just pinch it back together again. The following gluten-free recipe incorporates maras- chino cherries. Kicinski al- ways keeps a jar or two on hand because these moist and flavorful bits of fruit are an easy way to add color, fla- vor and tim to many dgsserts, snacks and appetizers. Iced Cherry Rings 1 cup unsalted butter 1 cup sugar 2 egg yolks Finely grated zest of 2 lemons 2 tsp pure vanilla extract 3 cups gluten-free flour (be sure to use one that includes either xanthan or guar gum; if not, add 2 tsp of either) cup maraschino cher- ries, dried well and chopped 1 cup confectioners' sugar 2 to 3 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 4 to 6 drops maraschino cherry Hquid This gluten-free cookie in- corporates colorful, flavor- ful maraschino cherries. Preheat oven to 350". Lightly grease 4 baking sheets with butter. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg yolks, lemon zest and vanilla; mix well Stir in the flour;, add the cherries and mix with your hands until it forms a soft dougi~ Lightly flour a surface, roll out the dough to ]A- inch thickness and cut into 3-inch rounds with a cookie cutter. Cut out the center of each cookie with a 1-inch cookie cutter. Place rings on prepared baking sheets. Reroll any trimmings and cut more coOkies. Bake 15 minutes or until firm and just beginning to color. Cool on baking sheets for 5 min- utes, then transfer to a wire rack te finish cooling. Mix the confectioners' sugar with lemon juice and maraschino cherry juice into smooth paste. Add a Httle lemon juice at a time. Drizzle over the cooled cookies and let stand until the icing sets, about 30 minutes. Makes 20-30 cookies. For more gluten-free recipes, visit www.nati0nal cherries.com. Great-Tasting (NAPS)--There's good news for bakers who are look- ing for a wholesome way to satisfy their family's sweet tooth. By adding a couple of healthful ingredients to cookie dough or brownie bat- ter, you can boost your fam- ily's fiber intake deliciously. For example, try using white whole wheat flour from-King Arthur Flour. It has all the fiber and nutrition of whole wheat flour with a milder fla- vor. Generally, you can sub- stitute up to 50 percent of the all-purpose flour called for in a recipe with white whole wheat flour. Flax can also add nutrition to c~okies and other baked goods such as quick breads and brownies. Both whole flax seed and whole flax meal from the company are high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. And they are finer in grind, milder in taste and lighter in color than other flax products. They are also non-GMO, certified gluten-free and kosher. Try this crunchy, yummy cookie recipe, created just for these ingredients, that tastes so good, you may forget to tell your family it's good for them, too.
