  1. When I need to take appetizers, I love to take a raw veggie platter w/ FF ranch dressing or fruit tray w/ SF/FF pudding mixed with FF/plain yogurt for the dip.
  2. All I do to make core granola is to mix old fashion oatmeal with SF DaVinci Syrup. Spread it onto a cookie sheet and bake at the lowest tempt. until crisp. I really love it.
  3. I made this for dinner last night and really enjoyed it. The only think I will do different next time is use the low-sodium soy sauce. It was a little salty for me.
  4. Just wanted to check in and say I've been back on core for two weeks. I weighed in this morning and have lost 5 lbs. in two weeks.
  5. Tried this last night and it is a keeper. Thank you so much for another great recipe!
  6. I made this tonight along with some homemade (core) eggdrop soup and my DH's response was, "Why on earth would you go out for Chinese when you can make this?" Coming for him that speaks volumes for this recipe. It was simply delicious!! I made it with the applesauce so it would be 100% core and I can't imagine it being any better using apple juice. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
  7. I don't have the Mix It..Match It cookbook but I do have the 5 Ingredient, 15 Minute cookbook and love it.
  8. Ooops...I forget the onion. I do add chopped onion to my dressing. Sorry.
  9. jimsbride...I make my regular cornbread dressing and my family loves it. I make a pan of cornbread using 2 cups white corn meal, 2 cups nonfat buttermilk, 1 egg, 1 tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking powder. After it is cooked, I crumble it very fine and add sage, a little salt, a little black pepper (all to taste) and mix it with FF chicken broth (I make mine a little soupy because I don't like dry dressing). Bake on 400 deg. until it turns brown and enjoy. My family always request I make the dressing. For the pie, I make the pie off the back of the pumpkin can but substitute splenda and FF evaporated milk (or FF milk) for the sugar and milk. The sweet potato casserole I make is NOT core and there is no way to make it core so I just eat a tsp. of it and count a couple of WAP's. I know there are some sweet potato recipes out there but my family loves mine and there's always so many veggies I don't mess with my sweet potatoes.
  10. I bought a box of Moo Magic Milk Mix and it is so good. You mix it with 8 oz. of milk (I use FF) and it makes the best chocolate milk. It is only 8 calories and 0 fat. This really took care of my chocolate craving while getting in a milk serving. I used my immersion blender to mix so I didn't have any powder that was not mixed in.
  11. I buy mine at our Food World. It is powder form and on the shelf right above the sugar.
  12. I used canola oil and red wine vinegar. DH gave this an 11 out of 10!! Can't beat that. Per DH's request, next time I will try adding water chestnuts and thinly sliced carrot (just because he loves them, not that it needed a thing).
  13. Made this last night and really liked it! Thanks for the recipe.
  14. My favorite everyday cookbook is Calling All Cooks (yellow edition). I make substitutions to make the recipes WW friendly.
  15. I love to bake the Devils Food cake with diet cherry cola (I mix diet cola and SF DaVinci Cherry syrup). Bake it in a 9 x 13 pan. After it's done, spread a can of lowfat cherry pie filling on top. It is so yummy and with a dollop of FF whipped topping makes a wonderful dessert. I made this for a church function and not a piece came home with me.
  16. I love the CocoaVia bars. The dark chocolate w/ blueberries are only 2 pts. each and the chocolate is so dark and rich that it really satisfy's my craving! They make a milk chocolate but it is 3 pts. and I could eat the whole box. One of the dark really satisfy's me more.
  17. 1/2 c. Splenda 2 Tbsp. cornstarch (not core but 0 pts. because of servings) 1/4 c. water Juice of 1 lemon 2 c. blueberries 1/4 c. SF pancake syrup (0 pts. over number of servings) In a two quart microwave dish, mix all ingredients. Microwave on high five minutes, stirring after 2 1/2 minutes. Store in refrigerator. It makes a good topping for toast also! To reheat, add a tad of water and heat in microwave. Serving size - 1/4 cup. This makes a great topping. I made the cheese cake (16 oz. FF cottage cheese, 1 box SF/FF instant vanilla pudding, 1 tsp. lemon juice) using the cream of wheat crust and put this on top. It was wonderful!!
  18. Suz....I have a recipe for oven-fried catfish that my DH loves. We use: 1/2 c. yellow cornmeal 1 tsp. chili powder 1/4 tsp. paprika 1 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper I first dip a fillet into non-fat buttermilk and then dredge it in the cornmeal mixture. Spray the fillet with Pam and bake on 450 deg., uncovered, until fish flakes easily (about 15 min.).
  19. Christine...I love this recipe so much. It makes a wonderful potato soup. I've used it over roast in a crockpot. There are just so many uses for it. Hope you like it.
  20. I used this to make a casserole that called for cream of chicken soup. It worked really well in my casserole. I have also used it to make cream of potato soup. This is really good! Cream Soup Substitiute 2 c. non-fat dry milk powder 3/4 c. cornstarch *(not core but only 7 pts. total....see below) 1/4 c. chicken or beef bouillion 2 Tbsp. minced onion, dried 1 tsp. thyme 1 tsp. basil 1/2 tsp. black pepper Mix all ingredients together and store in a covered container. Use as a substitute in casserole recipes. To use: Mix 1 1/4 c. cold water with 1/3 c. mix in a saucepan. Cook until thickened. Substitute for one 15 ounce can of cream soup. Makes enough for 10 cans of cream soup (not even 1 pt. per recipe).
  21. I made this last night and loved it. I may be strange but I don't care for the ricotta cheese. It leaves a weird feeling in my mouth. I will try it next time without the topping but I still really liked this pie. Thanks for the recipe.
  22. I put a whole package in a large container of yogurt.
  23. I love to mix the SF/FF Chocolate fudge pudding mix w/ FF plain yogurt. It makes a great dip. You could use butterscotch pudding or any flavor you like.
  24. This recipe looks like it would be great for turnip greens also.
