Jenny, thanks for your input on the cheese and soy sauce, too. So nice to know there are no food police here. LOL Also thanks for the info and link for Bragg's. If I find that in my grocery store, I'll buy it there, otherwise I'll just continue to buy the lowest sodium brand I can buy since I use soy sauce so seldom. The link may be very valuable to others, though. Great thing about this thread is that it will be so helpful to so many people.
Hank, I hope you find some new thoughts and ideas here, and we surely would love it if you'd share some of your own recipes. I don't make bread or pasta, but we do have some bakers in the Women's Motivational thread.
