Recipe Review :

Posted by Susan on May 12, 2009

This weekend I tried two recipes from the first Hungry Girl Cook Book . One recipe I tried was the Butternut Squash Fries . The recipe is really simple , the only thing that takes time is the prep. Butternut squash is really dense , and hard to cut and peel . Other wise , once the prep is done it is so easy anyone can do it .

They we sooooo delicious ! They tasted a little bit like sweet potato fries , but not quite as sweet . I took a pic of them but for some reason it didn’t come out so I had to search for another pic, but the one above is exactly what the finished product looked like.

The portion was huge , and I really felt like I was eating fries ! It was great ! I will definately be making them again very , very soon ! I definately recomment this recipe to anyone who misses french fries and want to put more veggies into their lives ( I know I do ! ) .

Another recipe I tried was the Pepporoni Pizzas . Yes , I know you hardly need a recipe for these, but in follwing the recipe you get the perfect 190 calorie portion . These little pizzas were easy, delicious , and kept me full and satisfied for hours . They are the perfect Saturday lunch for me . I have been wanting pepperoni pizza now for months ! I finally got to have it for very few calories , but still a lot of taste ! I will absolutely be making them again and often especially on the weekends.

Next weekend I plan on trying my hand at Spaghetti Squash and I will be making Spinach, Mushroom Mozzarella Supreme from the second and most current Hungry Girl Cook Book so stay tuned for the review on those .

I love trying these recipes . I am always looking for new things It is especially rewarding when I find a recipe the mimics something I love but can’t eat because they are too calories for my budget and it is just not worth it ! I am finding that for the most part, I can replace old fattening foods for these low-cal substitutes , and not even feel it . That is a relief for me, because I need to make this lifestyle change sustainable , and not feeling deprived is a big part of it !
