  1. Thanks so much for the recipe, the link and the ideas. I will certainly check them all out.
  2. I can't get that syrup here. I'm wondering if there's a Pumpkin pie recipe OR a pumpkin pudding recipe that's really good and Core that doesn't include DV Syrup...or, what could I substitute for the DV syrup? More ff evaporated milk? I have a large tin of pumpkin puree that I'd like to use today.
  3. Gosh, I'm so thrilled that so many of you like the muffin recipe. About the controversy regarding the blending of oatmeal to make an oat flour. You actually don't have to do it for this recipe to work. Yes, it makes the texture more like "normal" muffins, but even if you don't use the resulting oat flour, the muffins are still good...just a bit more grainy...which is not a bad thing. When I don't blend the oatmeal into flour, I allow the grains to soak about 15 minutes longer before putting into the muffin cups and baking. I love that you are experimenting with different fruits, etc to customize the recipe to suit yourselves. Yes, about 3 pts per jumbo muffin is about right, I think. You can make these in regular muffin tins too, but cut your baking time by about 10 minutes if you do.
  4. Thank you so much, Joanne, for the info on chipotles in adobo sauce. I looked all through the Mexican section of our supermarket and could only find plain chipotle peppers, which I bought. They've never heard of adobo sauce in my little corner of Canada. Your info about adding liquid smoke is very helpful because I happen to have a small bottle of it which I've never used. I now have all the ingredients I need.
  5. I made this recipe last night to go with the Turkey Chili recipe. Didn't care for the chili but loved the cornbread. It turned out great....the second try. The first batch had been in the oven for about 10 minutes when it suddenly hit me that I'd left out the ff sour cream. I tried removing the batter from the pan but it was already set around the edges and on the bottom, so I scraped it all out into the garbage disposal (my Mom turned over in her grave, I'm sure, to witness the waste) and started back at square 1. Second batch turned out super. Today I had a couple of squares with turkey veggie soup. I just warmed them up in the microwave, sliced and topped with a slice of ff proc cheese and a slice of lean sauteed ham. Yummy! It sure is filling. Should have just had one square.
  6. I made this recipe for supper last night. Granted, I'm not fond of overly spicy/hot food, so I did cut down on the chili powder and I used mild green chilies. (Perhaps I shouldn't have) Otherwise, the recipe was the same. I thought it had too much tomato flavor, and I really missed beef. I also didn't care for the addition of niblet corn to the recipe, even though I do like corn. I served it with the Core-n Bread recipe which was really good. If I make this recipe again, I will definitely make it with lean beef, no corn and less tomatoes and I'll very carefully add more heat to it. lol I'm such a chicken. Don't like my mouth on fire.
  7. This looks delicious but I have a very low tolerance for extremely "hot" foods. Assuming I can even find chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, would it totally ruin it if I only put in about 1/2 a pepper....or none at all? I know...I'm chicken. cluck cluck
  8. I'm glad you folks are enjoying these muffins. I'm still baking a batch every week or two. I find I like the original version but with yogurt instead of ff evaporated milk because they are moister.
  9. I made this recipe today and had my first piece of it after it had chilled. It's okay but I wouldn't call it Chocolate Snack Cake. To me, the strongest flavour is banana. I wish there was a way to increase the chocolate content but I guess we have to learn to do without. BTW, I made the version with skim milk powder and baking soda. Perhaps, if I make it again, I'll try the original version. Maybe it has a more dense chocolate impact.
  10. I really had high hopes for this recipe because I love crunchy, salty snacks. How great to be able to eat "until satisfied" of something other than popcorn (which I love but miss having butter on it)! Well, I'm sorry to say I don't think I'll ever make this again. Yes, they're crunchy. Yes, they're flavorful with just the right amount of salt. BUT, they also make me choke. Literally...they get stuck in my throat and I feel like I'm choking. Every one had to be washed down with several glugs of water (not a bad thing, I suppose). Then there are the after effects. I'm talking GAS, big time. I'm not knocking the recipe but it's not for me. It was worth a try though.
  11. Jo, go to the bulk food bins and look for any 7 or 9 grain mixture. It's not a flour. These are more like cracked whole grains. The one I use comes in a bag in the cooked oatmeal section and it's called Rogers 9 grain cereal but you can substitute any whole grain mixture as long as it has Core ingredients. Rose, if you make them in smaller muffin tins, be sure to reduce your cooking time by about 5 minutes. Otherwise they overcook and get dry.
  12. Thanks, my friends. I tried the one with cornmeal except I never had buttermilk so I used plain ff yogurt and it turned out very nice. When I make the one with breadcrumbs, I will just have to save up points for it.
  13. Man, I sure could go for some crunchy chicken fingers but I can't find a recipe. I'm so tired of chicken breasts in sauces of any kind, whether tomato based, fruity or veggy. I'm wondering how to make some nice crunchy oven-baked chicken strips that would be Core or, at least, very low in WPAs.
  14. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I can't get him past 4 meters.
  15. Way to go, Sodacracker! Now that's what I call tweaking. It never occurred to me to try cream of wheat, mainly because I seldom have it in the house. How did you like them? Would you call your version a "keeper"? I continue to make variations of my basic recipe. For those who don't like pineapple, you could substitute just about any chopped fruit including nectarines, peaches, strawberries, or even diced apple (mmmm, nice with apple pie spices). I bet it's good with pumpkin puree too, perhaps instead of the applesauce.
