They sound nice OKANOG, I'm also not a big fan of Splenda or egg substitutes, the latter over here are horrible. What on earth is wrong with the humble egg, it contains everything you need except vitamin C and it's natural. Doctors have pooh poohed the eggs give you cholesterol furphy so I say go for it.

Peace and long life - Jules

I like Date Squares mainly dates and oatmeal, some add walnuts boosting the calories, per square. Searched the SP recipe site for lower calorie content. Though not a big fan of Splenda nor egg substitutes. There are quite a few recipes there for plain old fashioned Date Squares...............
Below is a link to a low calorie version of the Date Square recipe.

Date and Nut Loaf sounds good. I don't care for dates if it's just picking up a date and eating one (although I haven't tried one in years--maybe I should give them another go), but I like them chopped up and put into other things, like breads and cake.

I make a mean Date and Nut Loaf. I know a lot of people don't like dates, for the life of me I don't know why, they are natures sweets

I'm always asked to bring Deviled Eggs (I put a little cream cheese in the mixture--makes them taste richer and you have more filling. I hate skimpy stuffed eggs!)

Sounds like the Pot Luck Dinner has the most scrumptious foods, but......do ya think more could be added, as our team is well over 87,000 members. That is alot of mouths to feed! Low-cal desserts are missing in action in here.......

Good morning OKANOG! Hadn't given that a thought...cheating or enticing. I really do like to take this salad but mostly because it can sit out without spoiling. I'm one that will enjoy favorites at a special get together but with caution and watching portions. My weight won't fluctuate from "one party". Life's short...could get run over by a truck. :)~ Have an awesome Memorial Day weekend! Remember the fallen. mary emoticon

Safe and very healthy, although possibly high in sodium, whole wheat pasta salad with plenty of tomatoes, cukes, onion, shredded carrot, green olive pieces, McCormicks Salad Supreme and enough light Italian salad dressing made with olive oil to wet the mixture.
