    Hi guys,

    My SW books are out of date and I'm re-joining a class at 10am this morning :eek: with the hope of renewing my books.

    I am thinking of getting the chunky directory and the branded free foods book.

    I was hoping you could tell me what your fave books are and why? I know I'm not giving you much time as I will have to leave my house at about 9.45am (sorry).

    thanks though xx

    There are shopping guides available now for whichever supermarket you do most of your shopping in. There are loads of recipe books and of course the bible - the directory! Although tbh if you get the password each week and look up Syns online then the directory is probably a waste of money.

    Could you tell me what recipe book you'd recommend. In the latest SW magazine there's a recipe for Beef in Oyster Sauce which I tried and it was really nice.

    I've heard of the No Syn Quiche which seems to be really popular. Does anyone know how you'd do that? Thanks for your help.

    I think the quiche is like a fritatta. If it is, all you do is get all the stuff you want in it prepared (usually peppers, onions and stuff like that or even bacon and ham for a red day) put it in a dish then pour over beaten egg mix and cook in the oven

    I was thinking of doing the syn free quiche tonight so looked up the receipe. One variation is cook bacon and mushrooms until cooked. Beat eggs and cottage cheese and add the bacon and mushrooms and ham (and any other ingredients. season to taste add grated cheese on top (if using as HE), cook in oven for 30 mins and garnish with tomatoes to serve. I cant find the receipe online but it is in my receipe book at home. I can get exact ingredients if you are interested but not until 6pm tonight when I get home. Let me know if you want them.

    ooh, I'm looking forward to trying this out too.

    Years ago (some of you may remember) CORNED BEEF was free on a red day:D although NOT ANYMORE:mad: and you could make the quiche with corned beef as the base and it was totally free on a red day and very, very, tasty.

    PRINCES corned beef LEAN is 2 syns per 100g so if you wanted to have a go with the added syns...you could have it on a red day. Not sure how much of it you would need...I may experiment on my next red day.

    oh, I'm starvin now :rolleyes::crazy::gimi::eat::ignore::drool:
