Spaghetti Sauce with Ground Beef
I modified this a lot (due to personal taste and ingredients I had on hand), but it turned out great--fantastic flavor. I actually used 2 onions, 6 cloves garlic, no peppers, and no meat--I had to use a bit of olive oil to saute the onion and garlic. I didn't have tomato sauce, so I used two 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes and blended one of them to a sauce; then I used a full 14.5 ounce can of tomato paste. I bumped up the basil and oregano to 3 teaspoons each and omitted the salt. I was hesitant to even post this review due to the number of changes, but it turned out so good I felt compelled to post. Even with my changes and the complexity of blending tomatoes, this was incredibly easy and one I will definitely make again.

Herbed Chicken Nuggets
These are very good and very easy to make. I definitely missed the salt, but that's just because I like salt a little too much. I omitted the oil, but gave them a light spray of olive oil cooking spray before placing them in the oven and I don't feel I lost anything. I did not have quite enough coating for four chicken breasts, but it was pretty close. I did not find this overly spicy like some. I calculated the calories as I went and these were surprisingly low considering the breading (cooking without fats is awesome!).

Whole Grain Waffles
Highly recommended! These don't have a strong flavor, but the texture is great and the lack of a strong flavor means they don't have to be buried in toppings to taste the toppings. In fact, they are excellent with REAL maple syrup, which, to me, has a lighter flavor than the corn stuff (Mrs. Butterworth, Aunt Jemima, Log Cabin, etc)--these carry that light flavor well. They also work well with berry sauces and they are excellent with fresh ground peanut butter (again, they carry the more subtle flavor very well). Using the applesauce and sugar variations described below, I prepared these on a 7-inch Belgian waffle maker (slightly under-filled--I don't like the risk of mess it takes to make them perfect) and weighed all ingredients to calculate calories. Each 7-inch waffle was between 195 and 220 calories. Not too bad for a 7-inch carb disk My variations: Canola Oil: From here on, I will replace the oil with applesauce. I have used olive oil to replace the canola and I have simply replaced the oil with applesauce (1/4 C to fully replace the oil). I didn't notice a difference. Sugar: I have used sugar and I have replaced the sugar with 1/2 TBS Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and 1/2 TBS Stevia. Again... I haven't noticed a difference either way. (Next time, I'm just going to avoid a sweetener because I don't even pick it up).
