Howdily ho neighbourino's!

Just wanted to throw a link up here, some really nice recipes, some (not all) recipes include ingredients that are american and I cant get them here. All the recipes have points plus (american pro points i think) and the nutritional values so you can double check. And pretty much everything looks yummy!

Thanks for the link Kitten, will check it out, new recipes are always welcome. I find the american recipe sites difficult too, why can't they weigh in grams instead of 'cups'? I am looking for a WW friendly recipe for banana muffins or banana bread at the moment.

With the cups and things I wrote up a conversion months ago because I kept having to google it, its on the inside of my press for new recipes but for any recipes that I use all the time I convert them and save them in a word file, saves me having to work it out every time. But I only bother converting for baking, anything other than that I just eye ball it and it normally works out alright.

I love the meat balls too, asian glazed drumsticks are next on my "to munch" list :)

While on the topic of recipes and cooking, if any one bakes how do you work out the points? Like for flour and things?

If you use esource, you can calculate the points for the whole recipe by putting in the weight of the flour/sugar/eggs/butter etc, and then divide the points by the number of slices :)
