As a matter of fact, there is! Wholesome Sweeteners makes an organic, non-GMO light corn syrup. I haven't used it before, but I rather enjoy their organic evaporated cane juice and dark brown sugars! http://www.wholesomesweeteners.com/Products/productdetail/tabid/170/PId/26/Organic-Light-Corn-Syrup.aspx

@edgy13 - I've separated eggs like this for years, and working in bakeries for the past 6+ years, and I've never had a problem with the eggs not whipping up due to any oils on my hands. I think if you're really concerned about it, a quick soapy wash of your hands with hot water before you separate the eggs by hand should eliminate any trace oils that could potentially screw up your meringues/souffles/etc :)

My family doesn't really have any major breakfast traditions on Christmas morning. We make the big Christmas meal for Christmas Eve dinner, and my mom always makes cranberry bread. We usually have slices of that warmed with butter after the gifts are opened, and snack on Christmas cookies and candy!

Even in socks or slippers, my feet tend to get cold in the winter, especially with my tile floors. I'll plug in a heating pad and set it on the floor at my desk so I can rest my feet on it when I'm at the computer and it keeps them nice and warm!

For elementary school lunches, I remember most often getting peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (which I hated), maybe a little baggie of potato chips, a thermos of milk (I loved my My Little Pony lunchbox and thermos!), and often a Little Debbie snack. The household favorite was Oatmeal Creme Pies, but my favorite were Star Crunch or Fudge Rounds. I would totally eat them first.
My neighbor (spoiled rich kid) always ate nacho cheese Doritos or cheese Pringles, tons of Flintstones sherbet push-up popsicles, and probably lots of soda thought I don't remember specifically. My sisters and I only got soda on special occasions, or maybe Friday nights when we always had pizza for dinner.

Shelled sunflower seeds, or roasted salted soy nuts! Also, the parmesan crisps are a great idea. I just made some last night, cut into rounds, to garnish a big homemade panzanella salad :)

The key to getting that shiny, crackly top on brownies is to make sure the sugar is well-dissolved in the batter. Before adding the flour, make sure the batter is very shiny and that it doesn't feel too grainy between the fingers, and make sure to scrape the bowl well between each addition of ingredients, and at the end!
