I haven't gotten my newsletter yet either, I keep looking every day...phew glad I'm not the only one, I was worried it was lost.
I just love Fage yogurt....lol every one's taste is different.
As for the mini m&m's I've never bought them, but stuff like that, I keep in the freezer and keep them for when I make her recipes calling for them.
I really don't have a problem over eating items I like since I found JoAnna's recipes. What I do is tell myself, it's not my last meal and I can have more at the next meal. And since I get dessert every day I never feel deprived and like I have to binge on it when I get it.
I made pumpkin pie last night from the CHAA book, but my oven must be going, cause I had to cook it longer, a big puddle of milk in the middle, same happened with the corn bread, twice! So I'm thinking it's not me now, as I have made this pumpkin pie and corn bread many times with out this problem, it must be my oven. Even my husband made frozen french fries the other day at a hot enough temp and long enough they should of been crispy and close to burnt, but they were just so so in temperature and were soggy!
This stove has been a pain since we got it, but we don't have money for a new one. So I think I'm just going to buy a new toaster oven, one of those big ones, and use it till we can afford a new oven.
As for the coconut extract, unless it's cooked I don't like it any way, when it's "raw" like in salad, or cool whip, it has a weird aftertaste to me that I never liked. My mom loves it, and so does my step father, I remember dreading it. Because my mom is very sensitive about her "cooking". And she knew I loved coconut, so she would make me these "coconut" drinks sometimes using the coconut extract...oh it was so hard to drink it, it would about make me gag, but I had to, or hurt her feelings which would upset her a lot and frankly make her mad if we didn't like what she made us, especially since she would try to make these drinks especially for me! UHG! lol
I tried it in a few of JoAnna's recipes to see if I would like it, and I just don't, I can still taste that aftertaste. I like it fine though if it is baked, like in a meringue pie or something like that. Just not in things that aren't baked or cooked, for some reason. I think I would of used vanilla extract and it would of been good.
