Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
We made this tonight, using olive oil instead of canola and less balsamic vinegar after reading the reviews. I also added a bit of salt and pepper, but it was still just kind of bland, soggy and greasy (and that was after deciding to turn them and grill both sides -- I can't imagine how greasy they would be if you left it all pooled on top and didn't turn the way some reviewers said to do it). I think this would be better as part of a burger with a lot of toppings or something, but you might as well skip the large amount of oil since it just makes it greasy in a soggy way and quadruples the calories. I'll try another recipe next time.

Spaghetti with Broccoli and Mushrooms
Just okay. The sauce is quite grainy if you use the parmesan in the can. I made it with fresh broccoli, mushrooms and garlic like many of the other reviewers. It doesn't really make a "sauce" -- it's just tons of butter and grainy parmesan. You can make a luscious alfredo sauce with no more work and next time I'll do that like usual, since the butter and parmesan in this is so much that it's crazy fattening. I don't mind making an occasional super high calorie and high fat meal, but then I prefer it be so good your eyes roll back in your head. :)

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars
32 servings in a 9x9 pan? By my calculations, these are roughly 100 calories per bite. There's a reason this is the first generation of kids expected to have a shorter life than their parents.
