Chris - Great looking cheesecake. How did it taste? It reminds me that I need to post the recipe for the key lime cheesecake I made this weekend. And that's awesome that you just tried PB&J for the first time. Which flavor jelly did you use? The classic combination is PB and grape jelly.

haven't had any cheesecake yet. has to sit in the fridge overnight :) (plus even though I'm not counting cals I think I've had enough today tongue)

I had a weird one actually. Manga & macadamia nut jelly. Was awesome! Thanks for the tip though, I'll have to try that next time :) Hmm, maybe in some oats mix :)

That is an odd combo, but it sounds delicious. I've been wanting to try macadamia butter but the one store where I saw it no longer carries it. PB&J oats are great. My wife actually eats that often. She'll reconstitute some PB2 and swirl it in then top it with cherry jelly. I think she caught the oat mix bug. She told me today that she wants to make some overnight oats and top them with Great Grains cereal.

lily-PB pro balls look awesome...do they taste like cookie dough?! have you ever tried baking them into cookie balls? and look at all that frosting on the bunny.........slllluuuuurrrrpppp...yummy! tongue and after ham's script of the ravioli...could I please get that recipe too?? bigsmile


Yeah, those PB balls do taste something like cookie dough. Sooo yummy! No, I never tried baking them. Do you think it would work where I didn't use any flour?

Bunny cake also had a strip of whipped cream on the inside. Mmmmm! lol


For those who asked about the ravioli, they were REALLY simple to make. I grated 30g of part skim mozzarella cheese, and divided it into 8 because I used 8 wonton wrappers. I put them in the centre, and followed the corners diagonally, and sealed them with a bit of egg white. I did the same with the other side, and made sure to seal every opening on that side so my cheese wouldn't seep out. Boiled the water and cooked them for about 5 minutes...until the cheese was melted. The sauce is hard because I didn't make it--my parents did...and I don't really have an exact recipe. That being said, I do know pretty much what goes into it--and it is super low-cal! (whole/diced tomatoes, pureed; tomato sauce; tomato paste; onions and green peppers, both pureed; a bit of olive oil; basil; oregano; cayenne pepper; and chili flakes.) I'm sure any sauce will do. And since I am a cheese lover, I topped it off with parmesan. Mmmmmm....soooo good

EDIT: Oops, 107 cals each. :) I used Jillian Michaels chocolate protein powder. My peanut butter had 90 cals per tbsp. If anyone uses those same calorie contents and wants to make/eat these, I already uploaded it in the database as:
Homemade - Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls (just make sure you are eating one tenth of the mixture if you use this)


MFP won't let me edit this again for some reason, but my pb actually had 100 calories in (it is my non-natural pb that has 90....but I didn't use that for this recipe).

Okay, so I'll post everything and briefly say what it is, but I am not typing up as much as I did the first time around. I don't have the time or patience for that. If anyone has any questions though, I can expand later.



Savoury, cheesy oatmeal topped with a poached egg:

How to you prepare your oatmeal for this, and what did you put in it?

I've never seen the chocolate dipped peeps before! All 3 of my nephews rejected the peeps from their Easter baskets and gave them back to me lol!

I'm definitely going to make those pb protein balls sometimes, thanks for sharing!

I used old-fashioned oats (non-instant/quick), and cooked them according to the directions (I used 1/3 cup dried oats). Once the water was absorbed, I added just a bit of soy milk (abt 1/4 cup or less--and I'm sure regular milk would work fine if that is what you drink). I was not intending on adding the milk, but the water absorbed quicker than I had anticipated, and I liked the milk added to it. I had my 30g of mozza already grated, and stirred that in with the milk. Then I added some salt, pepper, and basil. Once I dished it up, I put the yummy egg on top and purposely broke it to get the yolk to run over the oatmeal.

I sure do - Made it up based on a recipe I found on a Clean Eating site, tailored to my tastes! I'll post it here later when I am off the mobile bigsmile

Brunner-great idea with the peeps s'mores!! I love s'mores!! How many cals are in that peep btw??

Chris-who woulda ever thunk that soy, PB, maple, and chili would've meshed well togethor?! how was it...honestly? and A+ on the choc-banana ice cream!! and if you seriously have never had a PB and J...then you need to try just a plain old PB n J sandwich....fluffy white bread with chunky regular PB and either grape or strawberry jelly!! that is how it was meant to be eaten, LOL!love

lily-i think you and I like the same types of food!! laugh I bet those pro balls would still bake...only one way to find out I guess though :) and you should have sooo sent me a piece of that buunny cake!!tongue

Microwave s'more made out of a chocolate dipped peep


That is brilliant, ha! I wish I had peeps and graham crackers.

Also, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are delicious. I don't have any regular peanut butter in my apartment but when I went up to visit my mom this weekend I couldn't help but notice she had white bread, crunchy peanut butter, and grape jelly. I definitely made myself a pb&j. I haven't had one in ages.
