Well....let me tell ya!.... keylime cheesecake, brownies, spinach muffins, homemade chocolates...... most of the recipes I found on here! Umpa is great to change any recipe to a FTS (Fat to Skinny) friendly recipe. But, I think we are making Doug and Umpa proud because we have all been making our own versions and sharing them on here. They have taught us how to ride with training wheels and some of us are taking off those training wheels, but we still like to know they are running right beside us!
Do you have a facebook page? I have posted a lot of pictures on there of some of the foods I've been making. It's in a folder called, "out with the old, in with the new." If you look for me with my email, owensmath@yahoo.com, you should be able to find me. OR, if you find Doug, you can find me on his friends page. (Donna Gates Owens)
The really cool thing is that I never was good at, or fond of, cooking or baking before. BUT, now I love it!

I am very proud of all of you for the recipes you have been coming up with! It actually helps me come up with new recipes for the new books when you tell me what you are missing! This is a lifestyle change, you should never go without anything you want to eat.

Hi Nic, sorry for the late response....you are probably cooking right now! I pan fry the fries in olive oils with a bit of bacon grease thrown in to help them brown. I've never timed them because that will depend on how thick you cut them. I just flip them and take them out when browned. They always retain a bit of a crunch, that's normal.
