Fancy Omelet Wraps

(egg crepes)





2 eggs - beaten with a splash of cold water

A pinch of salt substitute


Filling: whatever you wish!

Here are two filling options:


Italian Style Filling

½ cup Washed baby spinach chopped

¼ cup Chopped Green onion

½ cup Tomatoes chopped

½ cup Mushrooms cleaned and sliced

1 Tbs of Parmesano/Romano cheese

Mix together to make a nice salad.



Aioli (garlicky mayonnaise) -

½ cup of Fat Free Mayonnaise

1 tsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice

2 cloves of garlic - mashed up (less or more if depending on your liking of garlic!)

¼ tsp salt substitute


Directions for Aioli: Mix all ingredients together, blend well and set in fridge overnight so flavors will marry together.



Make the Egg Crepe (omelet) - slide onto a plate, spread with a little Aioli and top with Veggie mix. Roll the crepe over the filling and enjoy!


Chili Cheese Coleslaw Filling (my own recipe)

2 carrots - shredded/grated (about 1 cup)

1 cup shredded/grated cabbage

½ cup finely chopped/grated onion (if you grate, use about 2 Tbs.)

½ cup fat free mayonnaise

½ cup your favorite cheese, I used cheddar

½ lemon squeezed through a cheese cloth to catch seeds.

2 Tbs of finely chopped jalapeno peppers (the kind you get in the jar)

Salt substitute and cracked black pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients together and set overnight to marry all the flavors!



Make the Egg Crepe (omelet) - slide onto a plate, place a dollop (about 2 Tbs ) of filling into center of crepe and roll into a parcel. Enjoy!

Easy Low-Fat Lasagna

12 servings at 5.75 points or Core plus 2.4 pts

1 lb. lean or extra lean uncooked ground beef ( I used 93%) 16 pts or core

1 box plus a couple extra lasagna noodles (not the no cook kind) (used 1 box of Whole Wheat) 9 noodles used - 12 pts or core

8-oz. Fat-Free Ricotta Cheese (I skipped)

8-oz. Fat-Free Cottage Cheese9 (I used 16 oz) 8 pts or core

8-oz. Fat-Free Mozzarella Cheese ( I used 16 oz of the part-skim, half for layering and 1/2 for top during last 15 mins of baking) 29 pts

1 Egg or two egg whites (I used 2 whole eggs) 4 pts

1 jar + a little more spaghetti sauce (I used 1 and 1/2 can of Huints no sugar added, pluse 1 tbsp of italian seasoning) 0 pts per 1/2 cup serving


Mix the 3 cheeses & the egg together (I did not mix the mozzarella, I left that by itself so I only mixed the egg with the cottage cheese). Put a thin layer of sauce in the bottom of a baking pan, add a layer of noodles (uncooked), then another layer of sauce, then evenly crumble 1/3 of the RAW

hamburger onto the sauce then 1/3 of the cheese mixture.

Add another layer of noodles and then *SQUASH* the noodles down evenly (don't break them) until cheese goo is pushing up through the spaces in between the noodles.

Repeat the whole process for 3 layers. Top with a final layer of noodles and sauce.

Add 1/4 cup of water gently across the top and cover with tin foil, shiny side down. Spray with Pam

Bake at 350ºF. for 1 hour, uncover, top with 8 oz cheese and cook till brown and bubbly, about 15 more minutes.

Remove from oven and let stand 10-15 minutes to set up.

(I cut it in 12 servings)

Re: The Buddy System Recipe Thread Feb 20 thru ?



Rhonda posted this and I made it today....OMG sooo good! Very rich though, only need a small piece...



POINTS® Value: 3

Servings: 16

Preparation Time: 25 min

Cooking Time: 30 min

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Cut these tangy Key lime bars into small pieces — the flavor is so rich that a little goes a long way!









  • 3 Tbsp margarine, softened
  • 3 Tbsp fat-free cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk(s)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg(s)
  • 1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice, or to taste, from Key limes


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  • To make the crust, beat margarine, cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and gradually add 3/4 cup of flour. Spread into baking dish using your hands (coat hands with 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar to prevent batter from sticking). Bake until crust is lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
  • To make the filling, beat egg and egg substitute in the same bowl used to make crust. Add remaining 1 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of flour; beat on low speed until blended. Add lime juice; beat on low speed until blended. Pour onto warm crust and bake 15 minutes more.
  • Cool on a rack. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and cut into 16 pieces.


Re: The Buddy System Recipe Thread Feb 20 thru ?



Picture is awful but better than nothing I guess


I am going to try to guestimate measurements on this, I always eyeball everything so I'm not good at putting measurements


10 potatoes peeled, cubed, and boiled til done

1/2 cup of ICBINB

3/4 cup cream of chicken soup 98%ff

3/4 cup ff sour cream

1 bag of shredded 2% cheddar cheese

4-5 slices of turkey bacon-cook as directed on package, cut into small pieces

1/3 cup 2% milk

1 Tbsp of Itialian Seasoning


Seperate enough cheese out to cover top of casserole once in casserole dish. Mix all ingredients together, cover with cheese and bake on 375 until brown on top.


If too dry add more sour cream/cream of chicken soup.... I was really guessing at what I put in there, but you should be able to tell....







oohhh and the margarita pie was to die for.... heres the recipe for that too! I dont' have pictures though it all got ate... will make it again soon though.... I changed it up a bit from what i posted before to try to lower the points...


10 oz frozen strawberries (w/o syrup, just strawberries)

ff cream cheese (8 oz)

1/2 cup bacardi margarita mix

1/2 cup splenda

1 cup ff cool whip


Blend all ingredients in blender, then add to a graham cracker crust, freeze for minimum of 5 hours, take out about 10 minutes before serving.... I saw in the grocery store a reduced fat crust, would probably make it lower points, I've made my own crust before using ICBINB and graham crackers, so that may work too I just didn't have time this weekend....


I took two pies, and both were ate in no time! soooo good!
