  2. Oooh, I never thought of banana and apricot together! What a tasty combo!

    And I'm dying to make your split pea with ham soup, but I'm not getting it to come out to 2 pts. using the ingredients you have listed ( I run it through Weight Watcher's Recipe Builder). What am I doing wrong?? Please let me know - I can't wait to try it!!!!

  9. It does look delicious so I made them.

    The apricot preserves all leaked out onto my cookie sheet and the floor of the oven. I will try this recipe again, but I will use pie filling instead.

    It sounds like you didn't seal them well. Sometimes I find putting a little water with my finger along the edge before I seal them well helps them stay together.

  11. Does one equal 4 points? I'm trying to cook to accommodate my mom and I'm not too sure how the points work. Thanks!

  12. ok, so I am just reading this recipe which looks great. But can you be more specific about the pastry?.. Based on the recipe I am guessing I cut each sheet into 9 pieces so I have a top and bottom? I think your recipes are awesome but with out more details or pictures of the process we may not execute them as well.I know some of my novice cooking friends will definitely be cornfused :-). Anyhow.. that is my guess for now.. I can't wait to try it..

  13. Yes, I believe I wrote that. Each sheet gets cut into 9 pieces (18 total) which gives you a top and a bottom. Pictures of the process would have been great, maybe I'll take more photos next time I make them.

  14. Gina,
    I just wanted to thank you for this site. I discovered your site November 2009. I have made the yummy pumpkin spice pie, turkey meatloaf and skinny chicken parmesan. I will make more of the receipes soon. I view your site daily. I have told many friends/family about this site. I've lost about 60lbs the past 6 months. I'll still have more weight to lose, but having receipes like yours has helped me stay on track. Thanks again. Please keep them coming. Take care.

  17. I'm coming up with 6 pts on old WW ?!?!?! those puff pastry sheets are loaded with cals and fat. i think i calculated it right. i'll double check my numbers if you double check yours.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Do you have the calorie/fat info for these? I'm counting calories vs doing WW and would like to try these.

    Thanks!
