I don't know if there have been any comments yet on her Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, but I made some yesterday.  Didn't have raisins so used cranberries, which worked really well.  There was too much sugar so next time I would use less and use a bit more cinnamon.  Nonetheless, the cookies were really delicious.

On thinking about my first sentence, does anyone think it might be a useful idea to highlight the name of the recipe at the very beginning of each post, i.e. capitals and bold to make it easier to search?  Just a thought

Yes I think it would be easier if the title stood out Marina, good idea.

These sound delicious Marina. Thanks for the hint on the sugar.

I love RTE recipes , but generally  too many cabs and fat. I reduce both and size of serve also.I support her because she is generous in sharing her recipes and general info.  She also does a nutritional count.

I love the nutritional count. I find you can change some things around for healthier options. I never use sour cream, always natural yoghurt. I also use milk instead of cream if possible and when it isnít. I buy low fat cooking cream.

I see AWW have a new Diabetic cook book out.  The sample recipe had no nutritional count.

Last night we had One Pot Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole. I only made a half quantity and it fed the 3 of us very easily. It was very tasty.

I made this RTE soup today https://www.recipetineats.com/pearl-barley-soup/ and was very disappointed in it, usually I love Nagiís recipes.  It was tasteless so I added a packet of chicken noodle soup, a heaped teaspoon of chicken stock and a litre more of water.  Iíd reduced the pearl barley to 1/2 cup but added more veggies as it was way too thick for me.  I used a heaped tablespoon of VSC as the veggie stock component originally.  Happier with my additions and ended up with 10 serves.

Judy, interesting.  I find with pearl barley the are 2 preferences.  Some like their soup so thick that their spoon will stand up in it.  Other like us, like it more liquid.

I like my soup really thick and DH likes his thinner. We tend to alternate between the two.
