" (NAPS)---Eating chocolate in small amounts daily may lower the risk for heart attack and stroke. "Low-carb chocolate with no added sugar and zero trans fat, such as Simply Lite, can pro- vide the taste of fine choco- late with health "benefits," says registered dietitian Debra Drago. "As always, moderation is key." Learn more at www.simplylite.com. Health-conscious bakers can substitute California avo- cado for many traditional baking ingredients, such as butter or shortening. By sub- stituting avocado, the nutri- tional value of the baked good is increased with the fruit's contribution of nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phyt0nutrients, along with "good fats" (poly- and monounsaturated fats). For delicious avocado recipes, visit CaliforniaAv0cad0.com. Creating a refreshing treat can be fast and fun if you keep on hand a few staples such as Comstock or W'flder- ness pie filling, which can be a sweet part of just about any meal.

ASK LEARNING CENTER 925 MAn00 ST., NORWALK (515) 981-1275 Warm Food For Cool Weather (NAPS)--Whether slow cooking a flavorful, steamy pot of soup or simmering a sooth- ing stroganoff, meatballs are an excellent ingredient in a variety of delicious, hearty dishes. Meatballs can easily be purchased in bulk and kept in the freezer, making them a convenient and delicious item to have on hand. Their great value, versatility, wide appeal and delicious taste are what make them a great ingredient in a wealth of recipes. Stephanie Ashcrai, author of "101 Things To Do With Meatballs," recognizes that meatballs can be the star of any dish in minutes. "I always ksep fr0zen meatballs ort hancL I serve them as mini ham- burgers, stir them into stews and use them in soups, on bread or oa top of pasta ahefm also perfect appetizers for a fes- tive holiday get-tegether." For her recipes, Ashcraft recommends using two fully cooked brands of meatballs: Casa Di Bertahi and Farm Rich. Both are made with an outstanding, authentic fam- ily recipe. The Case brand is available in Sam's Clubs nationwide and Farm Rich is available in major grocery chaius. Each are seasened with high-quality ingredients, then seared and steamed in the tra- ditional way. Ashcraft says that her Italian Meatball Soup really "keeps the chill off."

Maraschino cherries are easy to use and can add color and flavor to a wide range of recipes. (NAPS)--While some be- lieve that whoopie pies were first made in New England and others claim they origi- nated as an Amish dessert, all agree that they are a deli- cious, all-American treat. Tradition has it that when children would find the treat in their lunch bag, they would yell "Whoopie!" A whoopie pie actually resembles a sandwich. There are two soi cookies--usually chocolate---with a fluffy cream filling--often vanilla--in between. Over time there have been variations, such as pumpkin or red velvet for the cookies. The fluffy cream center can vary as well. Here is a prize- winning twist that relies on Maraschino cherries for flavor and color. Cherry Whoopie Pies I jar (10 oz.) Maraschino cherries 1 pkg. (181/4 oz.) red velvet cake mix 3 eggs cup canola oil 1 tsp. almond extract Filling: 1 can (16 oz.) cream cheese frosting 1 carton (12 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed I jar (10 oz.) Maraschino cherries, drained and chopped Cut 22 cherries in half (save remaining cherries for another use). In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil and extract; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Top each with a cherry half. Bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes or until edges are set. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. For filling, beat frost- ing and whipped topping until blended; fold in chopped cherries. Spread filling on the bottoms of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: about 2 dozen. To learn more, visit the National Cherry Growers and Industries Foundation at www.nationalcherries.com.
