  3. Lori, I am a quilter who ONLY machine quilts! Way too impatient! I am a diehard Bernina lover...........bought the Aurora in June '05 with the Stitch Regulator for free motion quilting. I LOVE it! Pricey but worth it in my books. Diana
  4. I Live In Canada And Have A Devil Of A Time With Cheese. We Can Buy Ff Slices But Not Blocks. Any Canadians Out There Have Any Hints Re: Substitutions For Ff Cheese? Is Skim Milk Cheese "core"? Diana In Canada
  5. I am a quilt addict of 12 years. Have you taken a beginners class? That would be my advice if you haven't. I LOVE LOVE it and it sees me through the tough times and also if you feel the munchies coming on, head for the machine................you don't want to get food on that gorgeous fabric. I have a WW 32oz mug of water ALWAYS by my machine as I seems to get thirsty when I get creative. Any questions, email me at peacebypiece@telus.net Happy quilting! Diana in Canada:wave:
  6. I am looking for a CORE dressing..............anyone????????? TIA!!!! Diana:)
  7. MUFFINS This recipe has got me through thick and thin (literally )and came from BCB at the start of my WW journey way back in 2001. BIG BATCH BRAN MUFFINS 15 oz all bran cereal (I use Fiber One) 2 cups raisins 6 pitted dates, finely chopped 2 cups boiling water 4 1/2 cups + 3 TB all purpose flour 1 TB + 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. saly 2 cups low fat buttermilk (I use 1%) 4 eggs 1/2 cup orange marmalade spreadable fruit (I use ED Smith) 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce (a 14 oz can) 1 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup + 2 TB veg oil 2 tsp vanilla extract In large bowl, combine cereal, reasins and dates: pour in boiling water and stir until softened. Set aside. In another large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt; make a well in centre and set aside. In food processor or blender, combine 1 cup of the buttermilk, the eggs and the marmalade; puree until smooth. Pout the buttermilk mixture into a separate large bowl and add the remaining cup of buttermilk, the applesauce, sugar, oil and vanilla; beat until smooth. Pout into well in flour mixture and stir just until blended. Add reserved cereal mixture and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 24 hr before using. When ready to use, preheat oven to 375 deg.F. Spray 24 2 3/4" muffin pans (I make 12 at a time and they freeze well) with Pam. Spoon batter evenly into prepared cups, filling each about 2/3 full; bake 20-25 min or until golden and puffy. Remaining batter will keep for a month in the frig. Makes 60 muffins. SERVING (1 MUFFIN) PROVIDES: 1/2 fat, 1/2 fruit. 3/4 bread, 20 opt. calories; 3 gm fat, 3 gm. fiber Per servibg: cal: 123 fat: 3 gm total Chol: 14mg Sodium: 185 mg Carb.:23g Fiber: 3 gm Protein: 3g Calcium: 21 mg I calculate 2 WW points per muffin Diana
  8. Jessica, thank you so much! I had one Smirnoff Ice and thought maybe 6 pt. so I am ok! It was very nice but empty points nonetheless. Diana
  9. Does anyone know the point values for hard lemonade, hard ciders like apple or peach, or Smirnoff Ice? TIA
  10. Kendall, what happened was this. I did 6 weeks of maintenance, then was way over due to the quitting smoking thing, so it was just extended until I got down the the 2 lb. limit. You don't have to start all over again! Thank goodness! The only exception was that you go back to paying the regular rate, which here in Canada is $14 vs. $10 for maintenance - until you get Lifetime - they gave me my $ back after I weighed in yesterday! Congratulations, for making goal! I was happy to make goal, of course, but the Lifetime achievement is awesome! Way to go, buddy! Now the fun starts and we have to stay below our goal! We can do it, after all, we are BCBers! BTW, I don't have any tips for you cuz I really haven't been maintaining, just trying hard to get back to goal - I just stayed at my normal points range! Diana
  11. Well, buddies, after many weeks of "miantenance" I finally got my Lifetime status. I declared goal on Dec. 4/02 after 6 very frustrating months of playing with 2 pounds - got my Dr. to give me a higher goal weight. Then on Jan.1st, I quit smoking. 8 lb. gained meaning I had to get back down to within 2 lb. of my goal to get Lifetime. Finally today I hit it! Great feeling; now the fun begins - staying down but I refuse to go back to where I was 18 months ago. It's too hard to do it all over again! Anyway, today was 8 weeks since i quit smoking - yay for me! Diana
  12. Char, can i use skim milk instead of no fat 1/2 and 1/2? - i haven't been able to find it here in my area. Also, have you ever thought about writing a BCB cookbook - like hints on more value for your points etc.? You'd sell 'em like hotcakes (low fat of course)! Diana
  13. Char, I have looked and looked and cannot find sherry vinegar anywhere. Is there a substitute I can use? TIA! Diana
  14. Anyone have a WW friendly recipe for these? DH has requested them for dinner. TIA! Diana
  15. Charski, have you used this recipe for hamburger buns? If so, how many do you make from the dough? I don't know what I did, but I tried making burger buns with this recipe and they were flatter than a pancake! Diana
