When an old friend titled my food posts "Baking Bad", I knew I had to do something with that.
You see, baking-Cindy style-means good and healthy. I substitute healthy ingredients in all my recipes and make them lean and nutrient rich. As a registered dietitian, I do that for a living and have done so for almost 40 years.
I modeled my title work and photo montage after the TV show (Breaking Bad) ads. This is a hybrid layout, with digital filters, frames and clip art and traditional papers and alphas.

Here's where it all began. . . a photo of me featured in the WVU Student Newspaper baking bread-in 1976. Photo by Wayne Scarberry, the same friend who nicknamed my latest recipes, "Baking Bad".
Finally, the modified recipe for Citrus Upside Down Cake, the one I'm holding in the layout photo. ( Serves 7)
Spray a 7 1/2 inch Springform Pan with Pam.
Mix 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbsp. Benecol margarine & 2 Tbsp. water. Spread evenly over pan.
