  • Really? An article on how to fight cravings that has nothing but recipes? Don't you think this title is a bit misleading? I'm sure there are some great recipes, here, but how about some practical tips and suggestions on beating the craving and handling it when you don't have time to whip something up? - 5/23/2014 8:12:44 AM
  • disappointed in this article...the first recipe i looked at was the mac and cheese, for which most of the reviewers said that the nutritional info was not correct. I would think that you would check each of these recipes, including the reviews, before you post them as suggestions/endor
    sements.... - 5/22/2014 10:10:45 AM
  • I looked at a few of the recipes, and all I saw was fat-free this and reduced-fat that and artificial sweeteners. I think it's healthier to eat real food and watch my portions. - 8/28/2013 10:54:43 PM
  • Great article. I needed this. I saved it for the craving time. - 8/14/2013 3:57:22 PM
  • where is the recipe for that luscious slice of chocolate cake that appears at head of the article????

    I don't see a recipe that corresponds to the photo. - 5/25/2013 11:28:29 PM
    I don't think fat is the enemy. How many carbs are in these recipes? - 4/4/2013 12:13:58 PM

  • They look really good. Will definitely be trying some of these! Thanx - 12/9/2012 12:51:30 PM
  • They all sound yummilicious. - 4/23/2011 3:20:21 PM
  • Thank you ... I love these recipes ... great help! - 6/5/2010 7:55:23 PM
  • Thank you so much for the great ideas. I've saved several recipes to try out. I loved the mini meatloaf treats....I miss eating beef almost as much as sweets. My problem is portion control and I found this article very helpful. I love recipes that can be made ahead of time and frozen, especially when it's easy to package in mealsize portions. - 5/6/2010 2:56:35 PM
  • What do you have for someone who crave carbs??? - 5/5/2010 12:32:25 PM
  • I'm sorry I read this and even sorrier I clicked on the 5 minute chocolate cake recipe. If I start with that I'm afraid I might not stop. This article looks like a potential "binge trigger" for me. Must be that TOM again..... - 4/30/2010 11:10:28 AM
  • I am looking forward to making some of this as I am struggling with sweets. I recently quit smoking too and feel that my sweet tooth has emerged. - 3/27/2010 1:25:34 PM

    the treats are really good, but as with everything its portion control, especially the mac n cheese, although you can find even lighter versions on the web but this one is good for special occassions. - 3/27/2010 10:17:43 AM
