  1. We had this tonight. YUM! Even the kids liked it. We'll have it again.
  2. I made this for dinner last night and everyone (age 4 - 40) loved it!!! That is amazing in this household. They asked if we could have it every night. Probably not, but nice to know that we can have it again. It was easy, delish. Oh, I did make a change. I marinated the chicken first. Mmmm...
  3. Has anyone tried both Boca and Morningstar crumbles? Is there any differece? Do you have any preference? I just noticed the Boca crumbles in my grocery store and they're a lot cheaper. Plus each package holds 1.5 lbs of meat equivalent vs. the 1 lb. in the Morningstar package. Could I really save that much money or is the Boca just yucky? Thanks!
  4. This was delicious! Thanks for the recipe! I substituted whole wheat flour for the regular flour - I love the nutty flavor! The kids and DH ate it up!

    TVP

    Thanks for the heads up! How do you prepare it? Does it taste like the Crumbles? How about nutritional value, points? How much do you have to purchase at one time? I use the crumbles for a lot of things and would love a less expensive alternative. Thanks, abcdef.
  6. I'm so glad you all are enjoying the recipe. I forget about it then make it two times in two weeks and wonder why I haven't been making it all along. I also love all your changes. I get tired of the same thing all of the time. And it is a great recipe for company. I always serve it for house guests and they always ask for the recipe and are surprised to find out it's low-fat. I love eating well and staying fit! Before WW I never thought it would be possible.
  7. Quilter in VA, have you tried purchasing them at Costco? I found a six pack for around $7. What a deal! Now if I can use them all up by their Novmeber expiration date. I am addicted to the egg substitute with the precooked crubled bacon and 2% cheese made into an omlette. Only three points and YUM!

    Prosciutto

    I can't get this at my local grocery store but it's at Costco in the refridgerated deli section. YUM!!! I love prosciutto. On pizza, with pasta, on a sandwich or just plain.
  9. Question on this... You really just mix everything together like a thick soup and then bake it? The tortillas or chees aren't layered or anything? Sorry, but this sounds a little gross. I would like to try this because it sounds easy and the ingredients are yummy, but I'd like to hear from someone who made it. Did your family eat it? Thanks!
  10. I've been wondering the same thing. Come out, come out, wherever you are...
  11. This is so good!!! YUM! Thank you for posting. I have already made it twice and the entire family loves it - the baby, the picky 4 yr old, etc. I would even make it for company - it's that delicious!
  12. This sounds so good. I can't wait to go to the store and get some yogurt so I can try it. Thanks for posting!
  13. Nope. No nutritional info. I finally found it on the WW site and it said 15 points. That sounds about right. I really wanted to know how many points I saved if I switched from ground beef to Morningstar Beef crumbles. Sounds like I'll save about 5 points. That's about a point a serving. Very worth it!
  14. Oops! Just saw the Gardenburger. Sorry...
  15. This looks great! Are chik n grill patties by Morningstar? Thanks for all the wonderful recipes, Deedle. You should get a prize!
  16. I stole this from the Pizza thread to post here because I tried it tonight with Morningstar Farm Ground Meatless Crumbles instead of ground beef. It was so, so good!!! And it is incredibly easy. Deep-Dish Pizza Casserole Recipe by : Cooking Light Makes 6 servings at 5 points each 1 pkg Ground Meatless Crumbles 1 15 ounce can chunky Italian-style tomato sauce cooking spray 1 10 ounce can refrigerated pizza crust dough 6 1 ounce slices part-skim mozzarelly cheese -- divided Cook crumbles in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until heated. Add tomato sauce, and cook until heated. While crumbles cook, coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of baking dish. Line bottom of pizza crust with 3 slices mozzarella cheese. Top with crumble mixture. Bake, uncovered at 425 for 12 minutes. Top with remaining 3 cheese slices, and bake 5 additional minutes or until crust is browned and cheese melts. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
  17. How many points in a pound of hamburger - cooked? Thanks!

    Pizza!

    I tried the Freschetta Brick Oven Mushroom and Spinach a few weeks ago. I was also amazed it was such a large serving for the points. And delicious! I'll have to try the others you've listed. Thanks for posting!
  19. I had no idea Michelina's made light meals. I loved these when I wasn't OP so I'm excited to try the light ones. Thank you all for sharing the info! I'm getting sick of Lean Cuisine.
  20. I made these tonight - YUM! They are really good. And are truly only one point. 1-POINT BROWNIES 3/4 C flour 1/4C plus 2 T cocoa powder 1/2 C sugar 1/2 C Splenda 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 1/3 C unsweetened applesauce 3 egg whites 1 tsp vanilla Combine flour, cocoa, sugar, Splenda, baking soda, and salt and mix well. Stir in applesauce, egg whites, and vanilla. Spray an 8" square baking pan with cooking spray. Spread batter evenly in the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min. or until the edges are firm and the center almost set. 16 servings, 1 point each
  21. Made this today. YUM! Everyone loved it. If I could personally get over the artificial sweetner taste it would be perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  22. I made this tonight. Oh my!!! It was so delicious - and it smelled great while it was cooking. The entire family gobbled it down - 7 yr old, 4 yr old, 17 mo old. YUM! Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe. I also followed your freezing advice so we have another dinner's worth in the freezer. We can't wait to have it again.

    "NO Potato" Salad

    Am I the only one who doesn't like this? I made this today and wasn't impressed. Oh well. We all can't like everything. I guess I'm disapointed. I wanted a low point, great tasting, "potato" salad.
  24. I made this tonight for my family. YUM! The four and six year olds even loved it. And not only is it delicious - it's so easy! I added a bit of beef bullion which added a nice flavor. I was worried DH would miss the meat (he thought I was a freak for making a meat-free stroganoff) but he said, "You know, I never really liked the beef part of beef stroganoff. I like this better." Hmmm... I'm trying to lower my cholesterol and eating less meat is one of my strategies. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe. I look forward to trying more!
  25. I made this yesterday and it turned out great! I have heard that it's better to avoid aluminum in cooking so whenever possible I don't cook my food in aluminum so I didn't put in the aluminum foil balls. I just put in cut up potatoes and carrots, added the chicken and it turned out great! The veggies were so good they just disappeared - very unusual in my house. Thanks for the great recipe!
