  1. Look at this thread: http://www.healthdiscovery.net/forums/showthread.php?t=119711 I also like using canned FF evaporated milk. It makes it more creamy. Experiment with mixing it with water and I like to use instant decaft coffee crystals instead of expresso. Also, after you make it, springkle some cinnamon or nutmeg on top.
  2. Aimee recently redid her website. Try this link: http://www.aimeesadventures.com/RecipeFiles/Crockpot1/EasyCrockpotRoast.html
  3. Thanks, looks like the last one is closest, just leave out the sugar and cinnamon. Appreciate your help.
  4. My cousin just asked me for her grandmother's (My Aunt's) recipe for chow chow. I saw her make it several times when I was a teenager, but never kept track of the ingredients. I know the way she made it would qualify for Core. The main ingredients were green tomatoes and onions. Probably vinegar. She also used a pressure cooker. No sugar and no cabbage. I was just over at cooks.com and it seems like all their recipes have sugar and cabbage! If any one has any ideas, I'd appreciate. I do remember it was hot and we seemed to put it on everything (except ice cream ).
  5. This recipe is awesome. We had a guest leader one time and she gave us this recipe. I have made it several times. Southwest Soup (Core or 2 points a cup) 1 can FF chicken broth 1 can diced tomatoes with green chili’s 1 onion – diced 1 green pepper – diced 1 package taco Seasoning Simmer above ingredients 10 min Add: 1 can corn 1 can black beans - rinsed and drained 1 can french style green beans – drained 1 can FF refried beans Heat and serve. I've tried it with different types of beans. You'd be surprised by the green beans. Here's Aimee's Chicken Fiesta Soup: http://www.aimeesadventures.com/RecipeFiles/SoupsandStews2/ChickenFiestaSoup.html And her Refried Bean Soup: http://www.aimeesadventures.com/RecipeFiles/SoupsandStews1/RefriedBeanSoup.html
  6. I have found that I do not like the ff cheeses when making lasagna. Doesn't melt or taste as well. If you don't like it either, after you have made it, try soy cheese next time. My leader even told me to just count the points for the cheese and use 2%. If you are worried about how to count that towards each serving, then make individual servings in small casserole dishes that way you will be able to control the amount per serving a lot easier.
  7. That looks really good Carol. Any idea how long it keeps in the fridge? Also, do you think it will freeze well. It would take us a while to use this up. I like the fact this recipe doesn't use raw egg or any oil at all!
  8. I highly recommend subscribing to Hungry Girl's Newsletter. It's free. Check out these soup recipes: http://www.hungry-girl.com/week/weeklydetails.php?isid=976 Plum Tomato Cabbage Soup Chinese Shoestring Soup Pumpkinlicious Veggie Soup If you can't get to the link, let me know and I will cut and paste the recipes here. It's cold weather again and these soups sound delicious! I can't wait to try them.
  9. I make what I call "Pantry Chilli." This is a good way to clean out your pantry. I usually start with a packet of chilli seasonings. (So few points you don't even need to count.) Diced canned tomatoes, canned (drained) corn, any type of canned beans I have on hand. Canned green chillis if I have them. Tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes. Beef or chicken broth (Fat Free). You don't have to use ground beef, you can use canned chicken or even Moringstar Veggie Crumbles. When I make chilli, my family can't tell the difference between the veggie crumbles and real beef, probably because of all the spices. I've even added salsa, red or green. If you don't like to dice onions (I don't!), then buy the frozen diced onions. I've even found frozen diced onions that also had peppers in it. If I get my chilli too thin, then I add instant brown rice to thicken it up. I also like the fact that crackers are low in points. 1 point for 5 crackers.
  10. I don't care for venison, but I did a google and found this site. There's at least three recipes, one under Deer and two under Venison: http://www.joycesfinecooking.com/crockpot.htm Good luck!
  11. This is where a vita mix would come in handy. You could put the orange in it (minus the peelings) and make a healthy drink. That way you could get all the pulp and fiber missing from just jucing it. But this is also the reason why we get 35 points a week, so Core won't be so difficult to follow.
  12. Here's their website: http://www.davincigourmet.com/ It's a very thin syrup - as thin as water. It's either sweetened with sugar (35 calories per tablespoon) or splenda (zero calories). Comes in a lot of flavors. My favorite is Hazelnut.
  13. Sam's Club is by far the cheapest. It's $4.12 for a large bottle. It's located by the coffee. Try also some of the upscale coffee houses like Starbucks. I've also seen them in health food stores. If you can't find the da vinci syrups, there are similiar ones. I believe one brand is called torani. It's located next to the coffee in some grocery stores. I only buy the da vinci. I've bought other brands and did not like them as well. Thanks for the recipe - looking forward to trying it.
  14. Olive Oil is Core. Just figure one teaspoon per serving. I'm not sure how many servings this is. I use Morning Star vege crumbles all the time in casseroles and chili and my family doesn't know the difference. FF cream cheese is not core but is very low in points - 1 point for 2 tablespoons.
  15. Beware, they are considered a seasonal item, sold only during cold weather. So, if you see one and you want it, best buy it because it may not be there later.
