    Since I started CD I have become (even more) addicted to food telly and recipe books! I've Vplussed the Celeb Masterchef and the Supersizers programmes, and am catching up on those of an evening, and have got one of my Nigella books out to read all the lovely recipes! Today I found myself seeking out restaurant reviews and sample menus for favourite and 'must-try' restaurants.

    Am I weird? :eek:

    Nope, not weird. I go through my recipe books to see what I can have/change. My recipe books take up 2 shelves on my bookshelf. I sort of collect them, to the amusement of my friends and family. It's all photographed so beautifully...think my drool might short my keyboard!

    i collect recipe books, but my worst habit is recipes in magazines.....i buy a mag, cut out the recipes i like, and then stick them in my recipe books......i now have 3, with varying recipes in! I love it, my nan used to collect cuttings from newspapers when she was a mum and we still have those, so this is something i will pass down to my daughter when she is older!
    I love all food programmes and regularly sky+ them and then write the recipes in my books.....
    but then to be honest, i've been doing it for a while...
    I currently have an A4 book with all my low fat/SW/WW recipes in!

    yep, I have a cuttings folder and a little notebook full of favourite recipes, like my nan's shortbread. Now that's a dangerous non diet item.

    I would be glad to sample some for you...ha ha! Not until I am in maintenance tho!
    I actually make cheesecakes and things for people in work - it honestly doesn't tempt me at all...in fact, it tends to make me feel quite full and sick - weird!

    Mmm, cheesecake. My aunt made key lime pie a couple of weeks ago. Gorgeous! So glad I started the diet afterwards and not before!

    I think I miss the pleasure of cooking more than eating.

    OMG thank goodness its not just me! Thought I was a wierdo! I love looking thru my recipe books, I find it difficult to cook without a recipe although my hubby can throw a wonderful meal together just by grabbing a few random ingredients grrr although he has said he hates cooking just for himself so is eating simple stuff at the mo, he is annoyed that I weigh less than him now too :)

    I really want to weight less than my OH! Need to lose at least 3st though. You can follow a recipe - all you need to do is think about the ingredients - add stuff you think might taste nice with it! You know what you like to eat, have a practice. What have you got to lose? X
