  1. I really love this recipe. This is very healthy, hearty, and filling. Perfect for serious dieters.

  2. I tried your Semolina Crepe and really it was very filling. For the first time i realized dieting was not only about eating just salads, one can relish such dishes without too many calories. Thanks for posting such recipes, waiting for more and ya the idea of making a cooking spray was great. It is so easy.
