  1. Found this recipe on another website where it was highly rated. It's really good. I used only 6 ounces of chicken breast, as I like the veggies more; splenda instead of sugar; only 2 tbs of oil. Might be able to further reduce the oil w/o problem. With those changes, along w/not counting any points, calories, or fiber for the veggies, this came out to 2 servings at 6 points each. If you like your veggies crisp, you may want to reduce the cooking times. Ingredients 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-sized pieces 1 tablespoon oyster sauce 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 large onion, cut into rings 1/2 cup water 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 teaspoon white sugar 1/2 medium head bok choy, chopped 1 small head broccoli, chopped 1 tablespoon cornstarch, mixed with equal parts water Directions 1 In a large bowl, combine chicken, oyster sauce and soy sauce. Set aside for 15 minutes. 2 Heat oil in a wok or large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic and onion until soft and translucent. Increase heat to high. Add chicken and marinade, then stir-fry until light golden brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in water, pepper and sugar. Add bok choy and broccoli, and cook stirring until soft, about 10 minutes. Pour in the cornstarch mixture, and cook until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
  2. I made the pumpkin mousse yesterday & it is great! Thanks for posting the recipe. I wasn't sure exactly what size can of pumpkin to buy, as they only had one size at the store. I got a 15 oz can & that seemed to work well.
  3. Hi: I've been looking everywhere, but can't seem to find some simple recipes for cooking cabbage and green beans similarly to those served at Picadilly/Morrision type cafeterias. The cabbage is very soft & has a nice (relatively salty broth). The green beans are also soft & are flavored w/ham. I would think the cooking of such would be really simple, but I'm new to cooking (especially cooking vegetables) & am not sure where to begin. Thanks so much for any ideas! Tina
  4. This was excellent! Thanks for posting this recipe. I only cooked it for 20 mins, as I saw in reviews of this recipe on another site that some times the shrimp were overdone after 25 mins. 20 mins worked perfectly for me. Shrimp were just right.
  5. Hi: Thanks for the post. Tried the Ball Park white turkey dogs tonight & thought they were good. Also used Castleberry hot dog chili. It's not bad & is only 4 points for the whole can. Tina :rolleyes:
  6. Don't feel dumb! I can't find baking bran flakes anywhere, regular store like Publix, nor in the local health food stores. The people who work in the stores look at me like I'm nuts when I ask. Any tips? Am in FL. We've got Publix, Albertsons & Winn Dixie. THANKS!
  7. MrsZotz: I made your "Fresh Blueberry Cobbler" tonight & it's wonderful. Also calculated the points by hand (don't have MasterCook) & it came up right at 3 points. THANKS much for the post! Tina
  8. Thanks much, Keep It Simple! Really appreciate all of that info. The recipes sound great! I wonder how using the FF chicken broth in your recipe would work (not a big lemon juice fan). Will play around w/these recipes & see what I can come up & will let everyone knows how it turns out. THANKS again!
  9. Thanks much, Charski! Sounds good & low in points. Will give it a shot & let you guys know. Again, thanks!
  10. Hi: I've got a ton of basil growing & am wondering if anyone knows of a good, but not too high in points basic pesto recipe. Also am looking for a good bruschetta recipe. Thanks much, Tina 222/211.5/150 OP since 5/02
  11. THANKS much for this recipe. Made it tonight & it was wonderful. Made a couple of changes based on my garden. Used about 1/2 a cup of chopped fresh basil, rather than a full cup & about a 1/4 cup of chopped fresh oregano. Served it to a friend & she couldn't believe this was supposed to be dietetic. Also, this is wonderful for anti-oxidants w/the tomatoes & basil. And even better if you add oregano, as oregano is supposed to be one of the best herbs for anti-oxidants. Next time I may cut back on the sausage, as I think it would still be great (& even less calories) w/a little less. Thanks again! Tina
  12. Forgot to add that added onions & green peppers to the recipe. Cooked these w/the sausage.
