Beef Pasta and Green Beans
I havent tried it with the veggies yet. If the hamburger helper seems a bit bland, you can add Herb Ox beef season (in packets). It has no sodium or MSG. I would only add 1/2 packet to start with and then add more to your taste if needed. I have used the Herb Ox and 1/2 the season that comes with in the Hamburger Helper box to cut down on the sodium. still tastes good. I will rate it 5 because it sounds very delicious.

I made these for Valentine's Day for our Sunday School class. They are very good. I changed the recipe slightly. I used two 6oz. containers of raspberry flavored yogurt and raspberries in place of blueberries. I didnt have any whole wheat flour so I used 1-1/3 C. unbleached, all purpose flour (same equivalent as recipe's) and added 2T ground flax seed. They tasted great. Eating healthy is not boring! I will make these again. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Healthified Cranberry-Nut Bread
how can this be healthier when you are using almost 2X as much sugar as original recipe+ maple syrup (more sugar & calories)? it still calls for white flour. I bought some UNBLEACHED flour the other day, by Gold Medal. Anxious to start using it. Using a sugar substitute such as Splenda is not healthier (or safer), just less calories. what is the purpose of using both types of flour?

Super-Simple Picnic Potato Salad
Yum. I used light Italian dressing in place of the vinegar. I found it was very easy to peel the eggs when I crack the eggshell after boiling then soak in cold water before peeling. The shells are so much easier to remove.The hash brown make it quicker to make. Loved it.

Microwave Baked Apples with Granola
Excellent desert to snack on. I like to mix peanut butter & yogurt til creamy. Spread on top of apple, top with granola. OR: Garnish with cinnamon then granola, raisin or cranberry (dried. Cinnamon is great addition! I use granny smith for the tartness.
