    I'm new to this forum so forgive me if you've heard all this before......

    I'm looking for recipes that I can cook up from scratch, recipes that aren't 'healthy' versions of junk food, can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    Thanks for reading.

    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!

    Thanks, I'm sure that's a very nice recipe but I'm a vegetarian so I'll pass ;)

    I'm sure others will like it though!
