An explanation of the "Fred-up" copyright. I am in the process of compiling a recipe book and my eBay ID (or one of them) is Fred-up. As this is being compiled for the members of the FH&G discussion board it seemed a good idea to use my ID for the Book.

All the recipes are mine and have all been tried by me or my family which is also where I got a lot of them from.

Davred, would you (or can I ) like to change the thread title to Fred-up's (or Davred's) side dishes and sauces...

The diet coleslaw looks an interesting one, I think I'll try that tonight.

Dave :)

By all means do so if you wish. I'll see if it will change for me.

The diet cole slaw is tasty. You can use diet mayo if you want but I find that stuff tastless.
