On my cooking team they use the Cooking Light magizne for their recipes. Does your magizne have a web site, if so, give it to me and I will check it out. I have been working in sewing crafts this weekend and I didn't even think about the recipes. I will write it down to do so I won't forget.

I am not alone God is with me in this and all endeavors I take.

Yeah, my gramma used whole & evaporated milks in her recipes. When you get to it, I think I would enjoy it. I try to make Lite & healthy stuff 99% of the time.

No, we grew up on whole milk, 40 weight cream, top cream and butter. They are simple recipes and it will easy to modify them. I am not going to take the time to redo them, when I use a recipe I substitute or take things out like the salts. I want them to stay the same as she made them for the next generations.

I would love to have the recipes. Are they Sparky? both my grandmothers have passed away. We just lost my step grandmother though. I was not terribly close to her, but she was always so sweet to me.

Yes she was very special and I miss her every day, I want to call her up and ask a question or find out information that I know she would have the answer to. She lived to be 94 and in the end it was better for her to go. She caught pneumiona and that is what killed her. I will post some of her recipes this weekend when i have more time to do it.

I have my Grandma cookbooks and her recipe file. I have typed out a bunch of them and will start to post them. Some of them are very old and it is fun to see how we lived back then. Some talk about your fish baking dish, and they also talk about using your cystral to serve the dish in. When Grandma started to lose her memory Grandpa started giving most of that stuff away so their would not be any fighting by our DARLING MOTHER or it being given to by baby sister for her to store in her basement.

I am sorry that I have not been on the boards. I got a little down and needed to take time for myself. Also the landlord wanted me to rearrange the apartment and get the uncompleted projects done. I am not going to read all the back posts, just starting as if a new person on SPARKS.

I have a suggestion...if we know the nutritional info on the recipes we post I think it would be a good idea to share. It would be a great way to save time for one another, ya know?

I am motivated to try asparagus now. Is the 16 spears a searving size? I mean would I make that just for me? I don't think the hubby would eat it.

Uhm well... there are a some good recipes in there but then there are some recipes that I think you have to be really brave to try or have a lot of money to buy uncommon items... sometimes I can find them at whole foods and sometimes I can't. Plus I have two small kids so anything that doesn't taste like a hot dog or pizza isn't good... ya know.

I guess what I am trying to say is that it is a toss up for me.

I actually have a couple of recipes on my blog I think they are on the left side of the page. I've also got one of Jillian Micheals cookbooks and the Biggest Loser cookbook. I'd be willing to share. Anything in particular that anyone is looking for?

I don't have time right now to post any specific recipes, but I have found a handful that I like on kraftfoods.com. If you don't want to search the whole site you can click on dinners, and then 1 bag, 5 dinners for a quick way to find recipes.

I am not a "creative cooker" and my meals are starting to get rather "blah." It's also a challenge to find actual meals that are healthy and low in calories. I thought it would be a great idea for us to share recipes that we have tried and like.

If you have any recipes that you would like to share, please post them here.
