  1. That's really encouraging! You look great... I am sure you'll reach all your goals.
  2. Slow Cooker Key Lime Cheesecake 12 servings/4pts per serving Crust: 1.5 tbsp honey 2/3 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs or chocolate wafer cookie crumbs (note: this is 10 squares or 5 whole graham crackers) Filling: 12 oz light cream cheese at room temperature 1 cup reduced fat 2% cottage cheese 1/2 cup sugar 1 tbsp all purpose flour 1/3 cup thawed limeade concentrate 2 egg whites 1 egg yolk 1 1/4 tsp grated lime zest 1. To prepare crust, spray the bottom and sides of a 7" springform pan with non-stick spray. Place the honey in a medium microwaveable bowl; microwave on high for 15 seconds to make honey more fluid. Stir in crumbs until evenly moistened. Press crumb mixture into the springform pan to form an even crust. Place the pan in a 5 or 6 qt slow cooker; do not let the pan touch the sides of the cooker. 2. To prepare the filling, put the cream cheese, cottage cheese, sugar, and flour in a food processor; process until well blended. Add the limeade concentrate, egg whites, egg yolk and the lime zest; process until well blended. 3. Pour the batter into the pan. Place a double layer of paper towels on top of the slow cooker, then place the lid on top, pulling the edges of the towels so they do not droop in the center. Cook 2 hours on high. Turn off the slow cooker (do not remove the cover). Let stand until the slow cooker is cool to the touch, at least 1 hour. Cool the cheesecake completely in the pan on a rack. Cover and refirigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

  5. Hi. This may seem like a real dumb question but it's been bothering me so here goes... I'm not sick, yet, but feel like I will be. I have the sore throat, the real tired feeling... and I hope I am just real tired! So, before it happens to me this year, when you are sick with a cold or a flu, and you want to drink tons of orange juice, and this means maybe spending a lot of points for that, do you continue following the ww plan/your points target for the day when you are really sick? Or do you "suspend" the points until you are better? I *really* do not want to go off plan for anything. I am finally back on full force. What do you do when you are sick? --moonfire
  6. Hello! I have had this recipe in my files but haven't made it yet. I do have the ingredients. I found guar gum at a health food store. It's a fine white powder, and not very expensive. I can't get Da Vinci here where I am either so I was looking for a do-it-yourself recipe. I plan on trying this this week and will report back in..if anyone else tries it I'd love to hear if it worked out! --moonfire. FLAVORED SYRUP (LIKE DAVINCI) For 1 cup syrup: 1 cup water 1/2 tbsp extract 1 tbsp liquid splenda, or 24 pkts 1/2 tsp guar gum For 1/2 cup syrup: 1/2 cup water 3/4 tsp extract 1 1/2 tsp liquid splenda, or 12 pkts 1/4 tsp guar gum For 1/4 cup syrup: 1/4 cup water 1/2 tsp extract 3/4 tsp liquid splenda, or 6 pkts 1/8 tsp guar gum INSTRUCTIONS: Boil water with extract and sweetener. Remove from heat and add guar gum, 1/4 tsp at a time and stir WELL. This will thicken upon cooling. NOTE: Guar gum clumps easily. I stir in 1/8 tsp at a time and whisk very well
