PT, I checked this site out and did have good recipes. I also need recipes that might be a cardiac diet and also help me "gain weight". Got any other suggestions?

I have a recipe that should help you gain weight. Or, great for PMS. Death by Chocolate Cookie

2 pkg. (16 squares) Baker's Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate divided
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanila
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup Baking Powder
2 cups chopped nuts (optional)

Heat oven to 350 F. Coarsely chop 8 squares (1 pkg.) of the chocolate; set aside. Microwave remaining 8 squares chocolate in large microwavable bowl on high 1-2 minutes. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in flour and baking powder. Stir in reserved chopped chocolate and nuts. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. (I covered mine with parchment paper). Bake 12 to 13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and feel set to the touch. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen cookies. Note: I've added dried cherries to these and makes them even better.

Ya, I am definitely different! The drug store has lots of weight loss stuff, but no weight gain! I emailed the foodnetwork and all I got for a response was laughter.Thanks for the cookie recipe.

Christmas Cookie Rules


1. If you eat a Christmas cookie fresh out of the oven, it has no calories because everyone knows that the first cookie is the test and thus calorie free.

2. If you drink a diet soda after eating your second cookie, it also has no calories because the diet soda cancels out the cookie calories.

3. If a friend comes over while you are making your Christmas cookies and needs to sample, you must sample with your friend. Because your friend's first cookie is calories free rule #1 is yours also. It would be rude to let your friend sample alone, and being the friend that you are makes your cookie calorie free.

4. Any cookie calories consumed while walking around will fall to your feet and eventually fall off as you move. This is due to gravity and the density of the caloric mass.

5. Any calories consumed during the frosting of the Christmas cookies will be used up because it takes many calories to lick excess frosting from a knife without cutting your tongue.

6. Cookies colored red or green have very few calories. Red ones have 3 and green ones have 5 - one calorie for each letter. Make more red ones!

7. Cookies eaten while watching Miracle on 34th Street have no calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.

8. As always, cookie pieces contain no calories because the process of breaking causes calorie leakage.

9. Any cookies consumed from someone else's plate has no calories since the calories rightfully belong to the other person and will cling to their plate. We all know how calories like to CLING!

And finally...

10. Any cookies consumed while feeling stressed have no calories because cookies used for medicinal purposes NEVER have calories.

It's a rule!

Any one who shares their cookies with you, their plate will have the clinging effect, thus no caloris ;\)

I will share my cookies with you \:\)

I wish \:\)

I have known a few people who found it hard to keep weight on, one ended up having hyperthyroidism. Once she was put on meds and it leveled out she put on some weight and looks great \:\) Another is my brother, he no longer has that problem, no idea why it changed. Hopefully you get it figured out sooner rather then later, in the mean time enjoy all the yummy foods and lots and lots of cookies and fudge for the holidays \:\)

When I was trying to gain weight, and had a hard time swallowing also, I was told to drink lots of milk shakes, and puddings. IT WORKED.

Thanks for the pointers. I also make homemade bread everyday. I eat that a lot. It seems to have helped a little.The last time I was in Strong I dropped to 130lbs.They gave me 2 plates of everything I ordered to eat.

Estelle, they are very soft. They have cream cheese in them so they are moist and soft. Try them.
