"These look delicious. However, I don't have any apple butter on hand--do you have a suggestion for a good substitute? " --Casey

Dana's response: "Applesauce works well too -- try to use unsweetened if possible."

"Just pour a little olive oil over the shrimp, with a little salt and pepper, and roast in the oven at 400 degrees until orange. Fantastic by itself, or makes a very tasty shrimp salad with the leftovers! Has a lot more flavor than just using boiled shrimp." --Heidi

Pastariso is the absolute best tasting RICE flour pasta. It is not gummy and tastes exactly like regular pasta. So much better than a few you did mention." --Donna

"I swear, the Barilla Plus doesn't taste at all like whole wheat. And it's the same color as the real thing. Just put marinara on it and your husband will never know!" --Allison, via Facebook

Some yummy answers to our query of "What's on your plate?":

"I cook my salmon wrapped with aluminum foil: Brush the fish with olive oil with a bath of dry white wine and chopped onions, roma tomatoes and chopped green peppers. Cook at 350 in the oven for 20 minutes -- divine." --Julie, via Facebook

"I do a quick salmon wrap with salmon fillets on the Foreman grill with rice and teriyaki sauce in a flavored tortilla wrap. I've been very busy lately so it works out well--healthy and quick." --Cheryl, via Facebook
