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!
