"I took the old Betty Crocker recipe and made some major ingredient changes. My husband said they had great taste and I think this recipe is both tastier and healthier."

  1. I can say every thing that HokiesLady said in her review, except that I tossed my fat free plain yogurt this morning before the garbage man ran and had no more, so I ended up using fat free sour cream and it was wonderful. I will be buying me some more yogurt, when I get some place that sells it, we don't have it in my town and will use this recipe again. I also used Smart Balance Margarine rather than butter. Made for Pac Fall 2011.
  2. Fantastic, marvelous, tasty, scrumptious...running out of adjectives to describe how much we loved this dish! Very easy to put together...I used fat free plain yogurt, standard whipping cream and added a bit of black pepper. Made for AU/NZ Recipe Swap #14 - Go Clever Cockies! =)


I'm a RETIRED high school administrator. I love to cook and my husband is a patient taste tester for me (poor baby)! Very lucky he is not a picky eater! We have an awesome son and daughter-in-law but unfortunately they live in Los Angeles so not much physical visiting. Lots of phone calls though! ? I love collecting cookbooks (drives my husband crazy), logo golf balls, and salt & pepper shakers (thanks to getting started with the old recipezaar swaps!). Recipezaar/ has been a fantastic site for me. I have learned a ton at this site and really enjoy all of the forums (I think I'm getting addicted to the Swaps!!) My next big challenge is to learn how to put photographs on of the dishes I am making. Suggestions are definitely invited!!
