  1. Sorry, Flour of any sort is not core... Not sure what you want to do with it, but Fiber One is core and great for any breading needs...

    WW Cookies?

    I bought 2 boxes of them, and I can say honestly I thought they were way too sweet and not what I am looking for...I have eaten 3 since I bought them and then told my daughter she could have the rest...
  4. Thanks for the yummy recipe...I use greek style fat free yogurt instead of sour cream and the finished product is great thanks for the recipe
  5. Here is the recipe and the numbers according to the recipe builder: 1 box low fat brownie mix (no pudge or betty crocker) 1/2 cup ff plain yogurt 1/2 cup natural applesauce (no sugar) 1/4 cup egg alternative 2 tsp vanilla 2 cups Fiber One Mix it all then put in cup cake pan. I only fill each cup cake holder half full and I get at least 20+ cup cakes. It puffs up a lot. I bake at 325 in a convention oven for about 18-20 minutes, use 350 for a regular oven. Each cup cake is 2 pts according the recipe builder...the extra fiber helps keep the points in perspective, its 3 pts without the fiber one.
  6. wanted to add here that I like to mix sf pudding mix with plan FF yogurt and drained fruit...with fresh fruit as garnish... best Core dessert we have
  7. I do Core as some of you may know who hang out in the Core section...but sometimes I just need to have some WAP's! Anyway can I be perfectly honest and say I HATE the diet cake, pumpkin and mashed bean recipes used in desserts??? I have tried them all and all I can say is YUK.... When I am having my monthly I MUST have chocolate and brownies have been my time tested friend since childhood. I love the crunchy chocolate homey feeling I get from them and I love licking a bit of the bowl...sorry I really do (but now I count every BLT!)...and well the replacements above just do not cut it on the satisfaction scale...I hate to admit it but I even gaged on the pumpkin recipe... However, I think I have come to a reasonable compromise I learned from the No Pudge brownie mix. I like them, but hate their price and they are so hard to find sometimes. What I have been doing lately is using Betty Crocker Brownie Mix (I can buy them for about a buck a box) and adding 1/2 cup of natural applesauce and 1/2 cup of ff plain yogurt and 1/4 cup egg whites to replace the oil, water and whole eggs called for on the box...then I add extra vanilla to the batter...about a tbsp. Sometimes I use the low fat brownie mix when it is on sale, but the regular one is not much different nutritional wise I am finding...though you get bigger servings with the low fat version... This is not as dense as a real brownie, but it tastes good with non-fat milk and gets me through the week without gaining. I have a good size portion (or two) with my morning coffee and it takes care of the chocolate craving pretty well..I am even thinking of adding some Fiber One cereal to it to make it have more fiber but I have not had the discipline yet...I will though. I have even used this with Pillsbury's new reduced sugar chocolate cake mix and it tastes pretty good...better than beans at least
  8. Marge I can not wait to try your recipe. It sounds simply awesome!
  9. Yep these are dried garbanzo beans soaked overnight or at least 6 hours. I will sometimes set them out before I leave for work and make them when I get home... I tried to do it with canned beans and they are too mushy...more like bean dip patties lol...still sorta good though...
  10. Since I started WW I have a goal of one vegetarian meal a week. In my never ending search for good CORE food I modified this recipe at http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/231755 I omitted the flour and baked them using olive oil instead of frying them. It was really good and I did not even miss the tahina 1 cup soaked dried chickpeas 1/2 large onion, roughly chopped (about 1 cup) 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro 1 teaspoon salt 1/2-1 teaspoon dried hot red pepper 4 cloves of garlic 1 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon baking powder 5 tsp olive oil. (this recipe makes about 20 balls, four big servings) Mix all the ingredients in a food processor until you get a ground corn meal consistency. It should be gritty, not purée. With a spoon (I use a small one) scoop out the mix into walnut size scoops and put on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with olive oil spray. Spray the falafel nuggets with more olive oil. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown and the mix is dry in the middle. They will be a little crumbly so handle carefully out of oven. I like these in a low point pita or a Flat Out with my fat free yogurt sauce (see my gyros recipe on the board), onion, and tomato and grilled mushrooms.
  11. Sorry I was gone for a few days and didn't see the new questions... Better than Bullion is a jar of bullion in a mixture form. I love this stuff. I use this to make a lot of things with it, and evaporated milk plus BTB replaces just about any need for a Campbell's soup mix. I even spread a little on my lean hamburgers for extra flavor...they have a ton of flavors...I LOVE the ham one...lobster...oh man they are all good... I steam tamales the traditional way. IF you go to the website I listed at fabulous foods it explains how to put them together and steam them... hope that helps...
  12. I re-worked this a bit… I agree, I like it cold, especially with Core Frosting. Here is my version 2 Cups Quick Oatmeal 1 Cup Cream of Wheat 1 Cup of Grated Carrots 1 Cup (equivalent to) Brown Sugar Substitute (I use Whey Low, but it is not Core, Sugar Twin works and so does Splenda) ½ cup of applesauce ½ cup crushed pineapple, drained slightly 1 packet WW vanilla smoothie 1 cup fat free Greek-Style Yogurt 1 tsp baking powder ½ tsp baking soda ½ tsp salt 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice (I like Chinese 5 Spice for this too) 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 tsp healthy oil Add a little water if it seems dry, but not much (like less than 1/8 cup) Mix the dry ingredients together well then combine the wet ingredients together then add to dry mix. Let sit until cereals absorb the liquid. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until brown on top and a toothpick comes back dry when you press it in the middle. Chill in the refrigerator. Frost with Core Frosting after it is chilled Sugar Free Cheese Cake Pudding + 1 cup Cool Whip (Free) + 1 cup FF Sour Cream or Greek Style Yogurt. Great on the go morning breakfast with milk.
  13. Thanks for the recipe...I will do it with Sprimp...I LOVE Ceviche!
  14. I wanted to experiment with tamales for Easter., even though we normally do them for Christmas. I figured if this worked I could do it at Christmas as well..it worked pretty well, I just need to get the masa part a little more core, but these turned out yummy. The masa was a little mushy, but it all tasted good. It firmed up the next morning perfectly (we like them cold for breakfast). I would gladly love any suggestions how to make the masa more solid. The polenta mix was yummy... Tamales Mole Meat Filling 2 lbs lean pork loin or chicken breast, all fat trimmed 1 can of Progresso Hearty Tomato Soup (This is CORE) 1 can chicken broth or a 2 cups water and 1 tbsp of “Better than Bullion” 2 Tbsp New Mexico Chili Powder 1 Tbsp Fresh Ground Cumin (I roast seeds in skillet then grind) ½ cup finely chopped onion 1 tbsp garlic (less if you do not like garlic) 2 tbsp coco powder 1 ancho chili pod (more if you like hot) Salt and Pepper to taste Salt and pepper meat and brown on both sides using cooking spray and non-stick skillet. Then put all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, then turn down heat and cook on low until meat can be shredded, about 1-2 hours. This can also be done in a crock pot very well, about 3 to 4 hours. Take out meat and place in a bowl and allow it to cool a bit then use a fork to shred the meat. Pour remaining sauce in a bowl. Cover both and set aside in the refrigerator until ready to assemble tamales. This obviously can be done ahead of time as well. Masa 1 tube of prepared plain polenta 1 ½ cups of plain mashed potato 2/3 cup of fat reduced Bisquik or other pancake mix (I am going to try to replace this with Cream of Wheat next time for pure core to see how it works. But with pancake mix this adds a total 6 points to the total recipe) Juice from ½ a lime 1 tbsp of “Better than Bullion” chicken or ham mix or 2 dissolved cubes of bullion. This adds flavor. So do chili's and other things, but my girls can't take too much heat. 6 tsp of Olive Oil Boiling water as needed. I mash and mix all the masa ingredients together and add just enough hot water until I get a stiff dough. This takes a few minutes. Do not add too much water. Making tamales is really not hard. You can use soaked corn husks as wrappers for an authentic look, but parchment paper works just as well. I do not like to use foil, but it works as well too. Spray the foil if you use it. Rather than write all the steps out just look at this website, it explains it well, better than I could. http://www.fabulousfoods.com/features/tamales/assemble.html#foldover This recipe made 18-20 tamales for me. I count three as a serving and since I do core I count half a point per serving (from the Bisquick mix). I am sure it is more like 3 or 4 with Flex, but I haven't put it in the tracker yet.
  15. I thank you for the bump...just discovered Light Flat Outs our market had...1 point per HUGE wrap...I have a new wrap for my gyros...
