Cookbook creator says: Not for those watching their cholesterol.... But it is a tasty way to enjoy grilled cheese. I will sometimes shred 3 different varieties. The sharper the cheese the less (in quantity) that you will need there for less fat. I prefer real cheese over processed cheese food.

Cookbook creator says: Not a lowfat recipe - you can substitute ground chicken, turkey or leaner beef for this recipe. It is quick and easy and the sauce is tasty.

Growing up I loved Halupki (stuffed cabbage rolls) and learned to make them the "authentic" way.... However I am always in a hurry. So I came up with this way to enjoy the flavor without all the fuss. Hey -- You don't have to cut them up this way! I have made these a varitey of ways from using prepared spaghetti sauce to this version - we prefer this way.
Sauerkraut can be added (just add the sodium to your count for the day)

I prefer to make my own instant oatmeal by taking my old fashioned oats and mixing them ahead of time. This is for a single serving but I often do larger batches. I put them in a ziplock bag or if I am going to eat away from home a small microwave container. Then all I need to do is add the water or milk (add the extra calories if using milk) to the bowl and microwave.
You can also grind the oats in a blender or food processor before adding the spices. (grinding the oats will help speed the cooking time)
I sometimes add a 1/2 tsp of vanilla as well.
Top with your favorite fruit and enjoy!

I bought a jar of natural pb with flax seed and wanted to try making it myself. I was VERY pleased with the results I am not a pb fan but THIS was very much to MY liking.
Since this is not as thick as commercial pb a little goes a long way.The recipe makes a total of half of a cup... 1 Tbsp covered a rice cake so my serving size suggestion is 1 tbsp.
