Green Day From scratch recipes


Strutting her stuff
Hi and glad you made it over to us from Ravelry!

Pretty much all the recipes on here are 'made from scratch' so I would just go browsing - there are 100+ pages to get through. Just look past the taste-a-likes.

Also take a look at www.slimmingeats.com
Arrrgh, I keep looking for ravelry buttons on the bottom of the posts - it's very confusing! I've just been looking and found some great ones so far. So many ideas! Thanks for telling about this forum.

Oh and I love Slimming Eats, i've already tried several recipes!
