    Tried this, it came out very well and I received compliments on it.

    I used low fat cream cheese, and added an extra handful or two of berries. No need to skimp on berries. I added maybe half a tsp of cinnamon and 1/8 tsp nutmeg to the cream mixture, for a hint of flavor.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Took it to a party last night and it was very popular. I subbed cream cheese for the wedges called for in the recipe. Made some toasted multi-grain baguette rounds to go with it. IMO it could have used a little more seasoning. Next time I will hold back one egg white, chopped up, to give it a little texture. I did it in my mini-chopper and it came out quite smooth.

    Tonight's new recipe: https://www.keyingredient.com/recipe...-peanut-sauce/

    Good: it was easy to make once I got all my vegetables chopped. It didn't wow me, but DH liked it. I threw some cooked, chopped chicken breast on top.

    Bad: the amounts are seriously off.

    The recipe claims it serves 4, but 1.5 cups of uncooked rice ends up as 8+ cups of cooked, fluffed rice. Unless you are feeding a high school football team you may want to cut the amounts by half or more. I cut back on the veggies because DH doesn't eat bell peppers, and I knew that 1 whole red cabbage was going to be way too much once it got chopped or shredded.

    The peanut sauce was too thick. I added water, soy sauce (for an extra boost of flavor) and hoisin, and could still stand a knife in it. We ate it anyway, but it needs some tweaking to get the consistency right.

    I mixed the veggies with half the rice and it filled a 2.5qt casserole dish! There's 2, maybe 3 more dinners left. And I've still got 4 cups of plain rice in the steamer.

    ch you can add water to the peanut sauce too to thin it out. used to make a satay sauce like my moms..that would thicken when kept warm so added water. had onions and Indonesian soy sauce in it.

    I think I have bought and tried new things like different marinted chickens but not many new recipes with the family. potato and leek soup was a hit.. tomato veggie beef so so and bacon and greens only ds and I loved. all I can remember.

    I did put some water in it, but water has no taste so it thins the flavor, too. I think it needs more vinegar or lime juice, and possibly soy as well.

    Potato and leek soup is a favorite of mine, too. Too bad leeks are so hard to find around here.
