Dear Hungry Girl,

Do your recipes stay posted indefinitely? Or will they disappear after a certain period of time? Do you have any favorite HG recipes? Also, will you ever put out a book with all of your recipes? Thanks for the info -- I am new to Hungry Girl and love it.


In Need of HG Recipes

Dear In Need,

Wow...lots of recipe Qs there! Yes, all of the recipes (and emails!) remain on the website ( indefinitely. If you go to the site, you'll see five main "areas" that all correspond to days of the week. Monday is "News," Tuesday is "Chew The Right Thing," Wednesday (today) is "Ask Hungry Girl," Thursday is "Weekly Weigh-In," and Friday is "Girls Bite Out." If you click on each of those buttons, you'll be taken to archive pages that feature lists (organized by date) of all past emails/content in that category. The site is also easy to search using keywords. It's all there -- so there's no need to save and file every email (unless you want to!). I do have some favorite recipes. My Fettuccine Hungry Girlfredo, Baked Onion Rings, Gooey Chili Cheese Nachos, and Strawberry Cloud (Starbucks swap) are probably my favorites. As for a book, yes, I hope to put one out one day. And it'll feature some classic HG faves and TONS of new ones, too. Very exciting!


I love the holidays -- and drinking warm, holiday-ish beverages. I assume most hot winter drinks are pretty high in calories, right? Got any tips for guilt-free sips?


Lovin' the Hot Stuff

Dear Lovin',

You're right; many warm winter beverages are VERY high in calories. Drinks like hot caramel cider, peppermint hot cocoa and hot buttered rum are typically PACKED with calories and fat. These sweet drinks can have as many as 500 or 600 calories. And I don't care how good they taste, that is a complete WASTE (unintentional rhyme, I promise). The good news is, there are some incredibly delicious sugar-free hot drink mixes and syrups that taste exactly like the real ones. And if you mix and match 'em, you can make dozens of fantastic low-cal beverages. Scour supermarket shelves for powdered drink mixes. Diet hot cocoa (any of the packets that have 25 calories are good -- I love Swiss Miss and Nestle) is a must. And a company called Alpine makes the GREATEST sugar-free apple cider. Find those where the cocoa & other baking ingredients are sold, or with the other powdered drink mixes.  Stock up on Torani and DaVinci sugar-free syrups in holiday flavors like peppermint, white chocolate and eggnog. In case you missed 'em, click here for some of my favorite winter-y drink recipes. Mmmmmm!


Tomorrow, November 30th, is National Mousse Day. We'll be bringing you THREE brand-new mousse-tastic recipes. Don't miss 'em!!!
