    Brilliant mate- it is such a liberating feeling. I bet there will be no stopping you now

    It is so much cheaper, healthier and more gratifying to eat a meal that you have cooked from scratch and know exactly what went into it

    Masterchef 2010 on the cards????? :)

    Me, my friend and my mum ( both joined sw with me) all talking about this at weigh in. We are really enjoying cooking for the first time and wondered why we ever bought cooking sauces from jars etc.

    Mmm, I made the chilli + soy steak a few weeks ago. It was yum! It's so exciting when you cook for yourself from scratch. I must know about 40 recipes off by heart now, 2 years ago I barely knew how to boil pasta! Masterchef here we come eh :)

    Are you going to cook anything else from that mag? I recommend the sweet & sour chicken!

    I saw that recipe and thought it sounded good. I'll have to try it now.
    I made the butternut squash and butterbean stew with couscous last night and that was lovely

    I used the pork wrapped in bacon recipe and modified it by using chicken breasts instead and stuffed them and added some mozarella from my hea. Delicious. :D

    My fave's recently have been the bolognese pasta bake and the broccoli mac and cheese (pasta pasta pasta!)

    Oh and the fabulous white chocolate mousse with white choc buttons and raspberries - I've never 'folded' whisked egg whites before, I felt quite the pro ;)

    Esme, I made the mousse too. I used belgian choc options instead and couldn't get raspberries anywhere so used blackberries, it was quite delicious! Had my in laws over for dinner and served that as pud, they didn't believe it was SW friendly! :)

    It's great isn't it, I've discovered the joys of cooking from scratch again too, I make really good spicy curries and the SW cakes and desserts are wonderful - What Diet!!!!

    Is the recipe for bolognese pasta bake in the recent SW mag? I'm waiting for Tuesday weigh in to buy it.
    If it isn't, would you be able to post the recipe here? It sounds delicious.

    Pink Toaster - Ooh I can't remember if it was this months or last months, I'll have a look when I get home! It was in the recipe ideas section for a veggie girl looking for green day options if that rings a bell with anyone?

    Otherwise I'll pop it in here a bit later on.. I wish it was home time already!
