OT Oh My God, I just discovered Hungry Girl Recieps and they are yummy

I ordered the cookbook "300 Recieps for Under 300 Calories". So far I have tried 2 of them. I modified the first one some because she uses a lot of Shirataki noodles in her recieps and I don't think I can do the tofu stuff. I made sort of a Pasta Alfredo. I used Dreamfields penne pasta instead of the Shirataki noodles. I fixed the cheese sauce according to the reciepe and used shrimp for me and my husband and chicken for his mother. It was yummy. Tonight I made Jambalaya. I cannot believe how good it was. I did leave out the hot sauce because we really don't like spicy but it was really good. Yea for me. She uses a lot of vegs as fillers, which is okay with me, so you get a bigger serving. Less fat, calories and lots of flavor.

what would make them even better is if she'd come over, cook them, and then cleaned up.

I'm not only hungry, but I am also pragmatic.

I've never heard of this, but from what you wrote Donna, it sounds good! Who wrote the book?

But after she pours the wine, wouldn't a little window washing be a nice touch?

Just a thought.

Author is Lisa Lillien and she has written several cookbooks. I think she has a program on TV but not sure the channel. First heard about her on Dr. Oz.

This is her website http://www.hungry-girl.com/ and you can see some of her reciepes if you click on "Chew The Right Thing". She converts current fav dishes to lighter reciepes there.
