  1. Just a heads up on the Laughing Cow. My super W doesn't have it by the regular cheese. It's up front by the gourmet cheeses by the deli. Maybe you can find it there. I'll definitely look for the Kraft tho if it's cheaper. It's pretty steep! But actually not bad if you compare it to what we'd normally be eating as a snack (per serving) And it's great! I like it on wasa light rye crackers. I have enough from one wedge for 3 wasa slices!
  2. I'd sure give it a whirl. I love the caramel apple and the kettle so I'm sure this one would be good too. It's pretty hard to ruin popcorn. I think burnt is the only way I don't like it and even then if it's not burnt too bad I'll still pick around on it.
  3. No, it didn't give the servings. Sorry.
  4. I found this recipe at womenof.com and thought it looked good so I decided to share. Recipe: Santa Fe Quinoa Salad 11/2 cup water 1 cup quinoa, rinsed 1 cup frozen, thawed corn (optional) 1 can organic black beans 1 red bell pepper, diced 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped 3 scallions, diced 2 tablespoons lime juice 4 tablespoons canola oil sea salt to taste Bring water to a boil, add quinoa and cook uncovered for 15 minutes. When done remove from heat and fluff with a fork. In a bowl mix all other ingredients and toss. Add quinoa, mix well and refrigerate. Allow to marinate 1-2 hours.
  5. I tried these with the wheat bran and I think they're going to be fine. I tasted a crumb when I cut them up but I haven't had a whole one yet. I made them in a 9 x 13 pan and I used all sugar sub., Splenda and Brown Sugar Twin, and I didn't have any raisins so I left them out. I put the revised recipe into Master Cook and came up with .7 points for 1 serving counting the whole thing as 12 servings. I will get the oat bran on my next run to Wild Oats though. Thanks for posting this recipe. I'm going to take them for my break at work.
  6. I just bought some Walden Farms italian dressing and it's really good. It has no sugar and no fat and no calories. And it tastes good. Unbelievable isn't it, but true. At least for me.
  7. Thanks for the info, but... do you think I could go ahead and use it in the pumpkin muffins or would it ruin them??
  8. Help!! I went to the store and bought wheat bran instead of oat bran. Do you think I could sub it okay? If not, I'll just have to wait til I go shop again. And any ideas what to do with the wheat bran if I can't use it? TIA.
  9. I have an 8 month old miniature American Eskimo puppy named Bailey. She is just the sweetest little bundle of fluff you ever saw. We got her when she was 6 weeks old. We had a Cocker, "Dandy", but last Dec. we had to put him down finally after 2 strokes. The last one left him where he couldn't walk or even lift his head up. That was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do and I still love him. I didn't think I'd be ready that soon for another dog but I really missed the companionship. My grand-dogs are another Am. Eskimo and a Choc. Lab and my Bailey loves them both. They come to stay quite a bit when my kids and their families go out of town. Sometimes just for play dates. My kids make fun of me and the way I treat my pets. They say they didn't even get that good of treatment when they were growing up. I just tell them my fur babies don't talk back and mind better than they did, lol. She is a real bundle of energy and because of her I always get out and walk no matter what, so she's a very good influence on me too. I'd post a picture of her but I'm not sure how right now. I'll have to read up on that. Edited to add: I added her pix to my avatar so you all could see her.
  10. I love this stuff and it makes the whole house smell so yummy! Like an apple crisp baking...Very appropriate for fall.
  11. I have a large crock pot and I even set a timer so they only cooked 6 hours and I doubled the recipe and it still overcooked around the edges. The insides were sure good though. I saved the tough crusty outside and am going to try to eat it like a bar. I tried this another time with oatmeal and the same thing happened. I thought it was from cooking it too long, that's why I set a timer but maybe my crock pot cooks too hot. Anyone have any other ideas about how to keep this from happening? I wonder how long they'd really need to cook? I could reduce the time. Also, are Scottish oats the same thing? I saw them at my local grocery and they were lot's cheaper than the McCann oats I got.
  12. This stuff is great and only 4 points for the whole bag! And it makes your house smell really good too. The brand I got was Jolly Time.
