Sweet Russian Cabbage Soup
We loved this recipe but I did do a couple of things different based on others comments.....instead of ground beef I used beef chuck that I 1/2" cubed and time I think I would bump it to 2 lbs beef. I also reduced the sugar to 2T Splenda Brown Sugar so it was sweet but not too was the perfect comfort food and relatively healthy.

Lite Coconut Cake
This cake was EXCELLENT! Followed others suggestions and made modifications. With the box cake mix I used the lite coconut milk instead of water; coconut oil instead of vegetable oil (but the coconut oil is semi solid so I was a little worried about how it would blend into the batter - maybe soften slightly in the microwave next time)and used egg whites from a container. For the center layer, used lite coconut flakes that were unsweetened and fairly small (from Sprout's) that was mixed with Splenda Blend and sour cream: the filling was VERY dense and not easily spreadable so ended up sort of dabbing and gently spread across the cake so wouldn't tear it. (Next time would just mix in the lite whip cream to make it more spreadable - also eliminating another step). Refrigerated for one day and it was EXCELLENT! The coconut oil that I was concerned about seemed to blend into the batter and no one ended up with a bite of coconut oil. Everyone enjoyed it and wanted the recipe....but the best thing was one, as a guest is Diabetic, was that this cake had minimal impact to their blood sugar. A winner all around!!

Bread Pudding II
This recipe was absolutely right on target. I had a loaf of panettone bread from Xmas past and the expiration date indicated it was still good, so rather than throwing it away I decided to use it in this recipe for the bread. I also used 1/2 cup of sugar (since the panettone is a sweet bread) and changed that further by using 2T of Splenda Blend with 2T of Splenda Brown Sugar (Splenda takes 1/2 of regular sugar). I soaked the raisins in boiling water before adding (they were on the dry side and wanted them moist). Everything else was the same. It was the perfect comfort food!
