  1. Try different brands, as there is a big taste difference in various WW pastas. Even DH likes Trader Joes WW rotini. Close to regular.
  2. truthfully, Carol, I've looked into other boards to see if I should 'move'. Sparks, WW, 3 fat chicks, some of those boards have great working search features. I've been around for years and usually post on the WWAH board. But I used to rave to everyone about the recipes here! I'm sure it's why the activity is _ so_ slow here. Why bother when there are so few new posts? You are so right, make a typo and then wait 60 seconds -- only to find out that ain't the issue!!
  3. That's the recipe I've been using to make waffles, but corn meal instead of oatmeal and yogurt thinned with milk to make it pour easier. It's a good basic recipe.
  4. This IS a very good reicpe, I agree. I have trouble not eating the whole pan, but digestively that would be a mistake. I pushed aside the mixture and scrambled an egg in the pan just before it was done. NO 5 spice, less garlic. added onions, celery mushrooms and egg. too easy and too good.
  5. This turned out really well, and I'm a tough critic. Here is my recipe for the waffle, I tweaked one I found somewhere. Cornmeal Pancakes for One Mix 1/4 cup Cornmeal 1/4 oat bran 1/2 tsp baking soda pinch salt Add and stir in 1 egg Then add 1 tsp oil (I used olive) 1/2 cup plain yogurt (** I used about 2T milk with the yogurt to equal 1/2 cup for the waffle maker to thin it for pouring. Made 1 and 1/2 belgium waffles. Best one yet!
  6. CW, I sure hope the search feature is fixed soon. I think that is one reason the activity on the boards is down. For me , I google a topic like Core pancakes, (Like I did this morning) and look for the results google gives me with healthdiscovery as the site. coming in the back door. But I'm sure lots of us really miss the ability to search. There are such great recipes and ideas here just buried away.
  7. Does anyone make a slow cooker chuck roast to make beef barbecue? Been thinking about it...... TIA!
  8. It seems the bad news keeps on coming. Some of you know DS is unemployed since last Oct. and DH since May. If he doesn't get another unemployment extension, or a job, any job, he will have to sell his car. So far he has been holding out for something in his field, now it may be at the local grocery store. DH is union and they are so slow, hundreds of men show up every day looking for work. And one or 2 men go out for short term jobs each week. The next big job has been put on hold again, so we are just taking it day by day. I've been cranky since the summer. OK, maybe earlier than the summer. I'd just like things to get back to normal, as I am sure you all feel. DH has experienced many layoffs during his 30+ yr career. It's why all the overtime $$ has gone into savings. For times like these. It's just sad to see it all going now............. Hoping the next year is the Recovery Year for us all!
  9. I saw that, Becca. Entemann's raspberry cheese danish is a major trigger for me. It looks like a great swap. How is your's different and how did you find Hungry Girls to taste? I haven't tried it yet but I saved the recipe.
  10. So I made this last night and substituted 1lb of Trader Joe's seafood mix raw, for the fish. I used 3 small potatoes and 2 carrots and a rib celery. I'd up the veggies next time but the flavor was great and with 2 t olive oil, was practically fat free! Everyone loved it and I will make it again.
  11. I just found it! I haven't tried it yet. but I will today! Thanks! Seafood Chowder Recipe 2 medium potatoes, cubed 1 carrot, sliced 1/4 inch thick 1 medium onion, chopped 1 cup clam juice 1 cup water 1 tbsp olive oil 1 pound fresh lean fish (halibut, tuna, haddock, orange roughy, etc), cut into 1-inch pieces 1 (6 1/2 ounce) can clams, undrained 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated skim milk 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives 1 teaspoon paprika Salt and pepper to taste Heat potatoes, carrots, onion, clam juice, water, margarine, salt and pepper to boiling in a large saucepan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are almost tender. Stir in fish and clams, cover and heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Stir in milk, chives and paprika and heat through.
  12. Becca, thank you, It's close and perhaps a double of the recipe I'm thinking of. I purchased 2 bottles of juice and 1 can of clams and I think it has FF evap. milk and a russet potato. But your recipe is similar. I, too, don't like really thick chowders. I go to this restaurant and am horrified to find most of their cream soups will support a spoon standing straight up! And it's all heavy cream, I'm sure. Glitter, Rule #1, 2, and 3 regarding soup. ( although, I've never made clam chowder before.) It is an incredibly forgiving concept. Your substitutes will work, and reminds me of a chicken and corn chowder that is another excellent choice. Go for it!
  13. I have the ingredients, but cannot find the recipe. And BTW can someone explain why the search function cannot find anything with the word clam in it? and then to wait 60 seconds, I liked the search better before, I don't use it much anymore. Thanks if you can find the chowder recipe. Juice, clams, 1 russet potato, ????
  14. ugh, no sugar. Just a touch of salt and FF milk and a buttery spread. maybe a few raisins, but no sugar.
  15. You look fab-u-lous!!!!! Whoo-hoo!!!
