The Truth about the Glycemic Load – Tells You How Much Carb (Sugar) Your Food Actually Contains (Whereas the Glycemic Index Only Measures the Effect of Glucose on Your Blood Sugar) The glycemic index on its own can be very helpful, but there were some people who felt that it had 1 serious limitation. While it measured how quickly the sugar of a particular food entered your bloodstream & spiked your glucose level, it didn’t take into account how much carb (sugar) was actually in that food.
Too much work for recipe box, going to look into the casserole versions - Chicken Cordon Bleu - TRIED - Chicken needs REALLY big breasts, but the recipe is yummy. I substituted Muenster for the Swiss, and Canadian Bacon for the Prosciutto.

No bake chewy granola bars--Went together very quickly. I also added about 1/2 c shredded coconut. I did not let the mix sit 5-8 min after adding wet to dry. I didn't see the reason. I make a half batch in a 9 x 13 pan. I loved the strong honey flavor. My guests loved them. Dried fruit would be a great addition. They are quite sticky so beware!
