Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup
I made some changes, started this June 27th, down 6 lbs AFTER stuffing my face for 4th of July! Used V8 juice as recommended by others instead of plain tomato juice, used a head of broccoli instead of celery, used red & orange bell peppers instead of green, had beefy onion soup mix so used that, had the carrots cut into chunks like another reviewer suggested (good call!), and boiled 3 chicken breasts, shredded them and added to the soup. Salt to taste. DELICIOUS! So good my mom tried mine and asked me to make her a batch! It reminded us both of Campbell's Vegetable soup back in the day (no idea if it tastes the same now). I could never eat just this all day every day even though it's tasty. Instead I've been using it as at least one meal replacement. Healthy breakfast, soup for lunch (sometimes with, sometimes without triscuits), generally whatever for dinner. This soup is SO low in calories that even a bad day can end with not going over my calorie goals for the day. I exercise regularly but love to eat so this soup has been a great boost in weight loss. I've NEVER lost weight so fast and I'm not hungry! If I get hungry, I have a bowl of this soup! Very pleased with this recipe.

Egg and Sausage Casserole
Ok lots of changes based on what I had. I only had biscuits so I used about 3, flattened, to cover the bottom. Did as others suggested and precooked for about 7 minutes. Used over 1 lb of breakfast sausage because that's what I had so decided to use all up. Only had 8 eggs so used that though would have used 10 if I had enough. Did as others suggested and only used 2 cups of cheese. Had some diced onions and green peppers (from freezer) that I defrosted and threw in. This came out SO GOOD! It's simple enough that you can jazz it up but solid base recipe (with cheese adjustment). I make breakfast casseroles all the time and my daughter likes some more than others. She LOVES this one.

Blackberry Cobbler
I did exactly what Adrienne C. suggested (except had self rising flour). It's not sugary sweet so if you're hoping for that, maybe add a streusel. I think it's amazing as if. If my sweet tooth is in overdrive, cool whip with warm cobbler hit the spot!
