Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Very Good 4.4/5
(61 ratings)

I got this from the Fix It and Forget It Lightly cookbook. It calls for any diet soda. I actually used Diet Dr. Pepper. I used Kraft Original Barbecue Sauce. Finally, I'm not an onion person, so I skipped them--and used minced onion instead. It was ABSOLUTELY delicious! The only hard part is eating JUST ONE SERVING!

Pumpkin Fluff Divine
Incredible! 5.0/5
(3 ratings)

This is a delicious crust-less pumpkin pie. This recipe was used while I belonged to Weight Watchers - I have found many variations of this "classic" Weight Watchers recipe. This dish is 2 WW points per serving.

I used double the pumpkin to Cool Whip ratio as many versions, making it more filling, higher fiber and lower sugar than usual. The Cool Whip Free adds plenty of sweetness, so when I make it at home, I do not add any other sweetener.

This is also a double batch compared to the original recipe. Doubling it makes it easy to combine pudding flavors, using two small boxes of pudding. My favorite combinations are cheesecake and vanilla, and cheesecake and butterscotch. If you want to use a single pudding flavor, use one large size box of pudding.

Used canned pumpkin, not canned pumpkin pie mix. Some groceries, even major chains, only carry the pumpkin pie mix. You can easily use canned sweet potatoes or other squashes. I have not tested this recipe with fresh cooked squash or sweet potatoes. For whipped topping and puddings, I have found using generic brands to result in a dessert with less flavor. Using standard vanilla will result in trace amounts of alcohol. To avoid this, use glycerin-based extract.

This dessert is also tasty in graham or other pie crust, or served with graham crackers.

I prefer to put it in the freezer to set. It is very good if you freeze it solid and thaw it just enough to stir it to a smooth consistency. You can also refrigerate it.

Pudding flavors tested and recommended:
Vanilla, Butterscotch, Cheesecake, White Chocolate, Banana Cream

Amber's Garbanzo Chickpea Extravaganza
Very Good 4.5/5
(49 ratings)

I actually got the basics of this recipe when I went to a tops meeting with my mother in law! Get em crispy enough and they are soo tasty! Like eating chips or popcorn but without most of the guilt because they are so jam packed with protein and only have under 200 calories a serving. It feeds four as an appetizer but I'm not gonna lie, I've sat down and had em for lunch and ate an entire batch! They even have a good amont of fiber so enjoy!

The meat does not need to be seared in skillet first to make this fall-apart tender, pulled BBQ beef for sandwiches. This recipe has so much flavor no one will notice the Worcestshire sauce & the salt were deleted to reduce sodium (you may also use low-sodium catsup and BBQ to reduce sodium further). Using molasses instead of brown sugar and Worcestshire gives a depth of flavor and authenticity, while reducing sugar & sodium. It is great to take to picnics, buffets, or tailgating. Freezes well.
