I'm starting to transition to a low-glycemic index diet, and am trying to come up with some meal plans as well as substitutions for the kind of white flour and white sugar-based cakes and cookies I've always baked. What are your favourite low-glycemic meal and dessert ideas and recipes? It has long been my practice to batch cook just once a week, so make ahead and freeze casserole-type meal ideas are preferred. No recipes containing artificial sweeteners, please, as I don't see them as an improvement on sugar.
Convince me to love it. [more inside]

Pantry contents inside. [more inside]

So it's rhubarb season and I've finally managed to buy a big batch, yay! I love the stuff and have been waiting for this all year. I usually make crumbles/stews, but am looking to push the boat out a little more this time to get the most out of it, finding new recipes and also ways to preserve for when it's no longer around (jams, in alcohol, freezing?). What are your favourite recipes and what other things have you found pair well with it? Have you ever made booze with rhubarb? I'd be grateful for any tips, and thank you in advance!
It's Berry Season! On my kitchen ledge I have a enormous punnet of fresh mulberries - more than we can possibly eat fresh. I need to use them up before they spoil, but it's not a fruit I'm very familiar with. Please share your mulberry recipes! (Ones involving baking would be favorite!)

I've been gifted a fruit basket. The problem is while there are lots of fruits I eat, I now find myself with a bunch of fat pears. Because I'm a picky eater, I don't like pears.

[more inside]

Either I'm being paranoid or the stores I frequent have stopped stocking certain items beloved by me because they contain both chocolate and peanut butter. Paranoid or not, I can bake, and am therefore not at the mercy of the peanut butter and chocolate overlords. Which leads me to ask the question, what decadent peanut butter and chocolate recipes do you have to share?
