  1. Raidermom You hit the nail on the head about it being yeast extract. And it is most commonly spread on toast or made into vegemite sandwiches. Being an expat Aussie - I still make sure that i have my vegemite - its great for breakfast. Only problem is that my DH can't stand the stuff. I have tried to explain to him that it is like peanut butter to americans but he just won't get it. Fiona
  2. Just wanted to share these. I made them for when my in-laws came for dinner last weekend and they were really yummy. And a single serving has only 5 grams of fat yet all the flavour of cheesecake. 4 chocolate wafer cookies, crushed (1/4 cup) 2 containers (8 ounces each) fat-free soft cream cheese 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel) , softened 2/3 cup sugar 1/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons vanilla 3 egg whites 2 tablespoons sugar 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee (dry) 1 tablespoon sugar 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon Baking cocoa, if desired 1. Heat oven to 300ºF. Spray 12 medium muffin cups, 2 1/2x1 1/4 inches, with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the chocolate wafer crumbs on bottom of each muffin cup. 2. Beat cream cheeses in medium bowl, using wire whisk, until smooth. Beat in 2/3 cup sugar, the milk, flour, vanilla and egg whites until almost smooth. 3. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the batter. Beat 2 tablespoons sugar and the coffee into remaining batter, using wire whisk, until blended. Carefully spoon about 3 tablespoons coffee batter into each muffin cup. Carefully spoon 2 tablespoons reserved vanilla batter over coffee batter. Mix 1 tablespoon sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over vanilla batter. 4. Bake about 18 minutes or just until set. Cool 30 minutes. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 24 hours. Run small metal spatula around edge of each muffin cup; remove cheesecakes. Sprinkle with cocoa. 1 Cheesecake: Calories 160 (Calories from Fat 45); Fat 5g (Saturated 3g); Cholesterol 15mg; Sodium 290mg; Potassium 110mg; Carbohydrate 20g (Dietary Fiber 0g); Protein 9g % Daily Value: Vitamin A 18%; Vitamin C 0%; Vitamin D 0%; Calcium 12%; Iron 0%; Folic Acid 2% 4 points per cheesecake.

  3. Dawn Thanks for this. I have been looking for interesting recipes for Spaghetti Squash and will have to try it. Fiona
  4. Hi This sounds just like the self saucing puddings that I loved as a kid. I will definitely have to try this. Thanks Fiona
