Thanks for adding the "stuff to put salsa on." I have definitely been worried that I would lose my favorite foods (mexican). I'm excited to try all of these recipes.

I thought there was a cinnamon roll recipe somewhere that used bread. Is anyone familiar with that? I need some breakfast ideas, I can barely get it down, I have been doing 2 eggs and toast but wow even that is tough. I am going to try the french toast, I did purchase some maple flavoring and I believe there is a OP syrup recipe somewhere. Breakfast ideas anyone? Simple, small, etc

... and you told me you didn't cook!?!?! lol... I'm going to try this salsa, it looks delish!!!

Oh yes, we can't lose our Mexican food! Hope you enjoy it.... Try the soft taco recipe.... The low calorie tortilla's I use are by "La Tortilla Factory" and they are 40 calorie's. They are the size of corn tortilla's but made of wheat. I hope that helps. Oh, they usually aren't with the regular tortilla's so you might want to ask at your supermarket.

Denise that's the same tortilla's I use, I scorch them in the skillet to get somewhat of a crunch to it, I'm completely hooked on that salsa. My DH even requested the taco casserole tonight, ha...

What do you know about artichokes? I bought one and have no idea what to do with it. You'd think I would have at least had a plan before hand but nope. I used to get a spinach and artichoke keesh <sp> at Panera that I was hoping to work towards. I love the casserole and pot pie type meals.

I'm so glad!!! I love that your DH requested the casserole, that's great!

So, I don't know much about artichokes however.... I looked through the MRC cookbook and there is a recipe in there for Spinich Artichoke casserole (if you have the cookbook, it's on page 146). Here is the recipe.... since you bought one and the one in here talks about using frozen, you'll just have to modify it....

2 oz frozen spinich, thawed
2 oz frozen artichokes, thawed
2 oz romano (hard block) cheese
2 tsp mayonnaise (from page 6)
1 pkg cream of chicken supplement
Garlic powder to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small baking dish, mix all ingredients together and cover. Bake until bubbly, about 25 minutes.

Serving 1
Meal Lunch
Replaces Protein, Veggie, and creamy

So... the mayonnaise recipe is as follows:

1 cup safflower oil
2 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp dry mustard
1 egg
1-2 pkg Equal (optional)
Dash white pepper

In a covered blender or food processor, mix 1/2 cup safflower oil and remaining ingredients for several seconds until thoroughly blended.

Remove center of blender or processor, cover and pour --- very slowly --- the remaining 3/4 cup safflower oil. Continue blending until well mixed.

Serving equals 2 tsp per day

Thanks Denise, I swear I must have seen that in the cookbook and in my subconcious mind was thinking of it when I purchased the artichoke because I was actually looking for frozen (it can't be found). Sometimes I think my job is making me stupid or at the very least very forgetful. It sounds delicous I am going to try and conquer it.

Brainsgirl did you find the serving size of the cheesecake for breakfast a wee bit overwhelming? I tried it but would have been satisfied with only half what the serving called for. Very good though for sure.

brainsgirl - the chocolate cheesecake is one of my favorites! I ran out of chocolate pudding, so I made the Strawberry Banana cheesecake a couple days ago - it's pretty good - but chocolate is still my favorite.

I picked up a few tricks to make it creamier. I get the best results in a food processor.

- I start by making the crust (16 white melba toast rounds, 2 Tbsp safflower oil, 2 pkgs splenda, 1 Tbsp Molly McButter or butter buds (powder) AND, I add 1 tsp of vanilla extract). I process until it is powder crumbs. Spray butter flavored pam in your pan, then press the crust down and chill while making the cheesecake.

- Mix 1/2 cup of boiling water, 2 pkgs splenda & 1 pkg Knox unflavored gelatin in the food processor. Once gelatin is desolved, then add the 16 oz of low fat cottage cheese. Blend until creamy (stop to scrap a couple times). Once the mixture resembles cheesecake, THEN add the 2 pkgs double chocolate pudding supplement. I slightly mix it in by hand before blending (avoids the powder storm :-).

Making it in this order seems to result in the best "cheesecake" look. I had a few disasters until I got it right. I chill overnight and never have a problem eating my two slices for breakfast. ENJOY!

Let me know how it comes out... it sounds delicious to me!!! And btw, my job made me stupid a very long time ago!

You're welcome!

It's good when you blend it, isn't it!!! I like to mix half and half HNS (example... 1/2 orange and 1/2 strawberry kiwi) in the blender with ice and water.... it's good too! give it a shot!
