I use the Kraft foods site also. They do a free magazine about every other month that has good easy recipes in it. I think you can sign up for the magazine on the kraftfoods website.

I took a look at the recipes on Spark the other day and I thought most of them looked really fattening, which isn't gonna help me any.

The toughest part of a diet isn't watching what you eat. It's watching what other people eat.

You know, I went to a site I go to all the time. kraftfoods.com
I forgot about that site and looked it up. They have the healthy stuff and also a meal plan for the week. 1 bag, 5 meals.
I am gonna try it next week and see how it goes.

I use the Master Cook program too. It does a great job at doing the math for you when it comes to adjusting the number of servings. You could always try recipes.com.

I have always been a fan of foodfit.com - not that you could tell by my waistline. :)

Some of the recipes are a bit complicated or crazy, but there are some easier ones as well.

Check it out!

You might also check out the Better Homes and Gardens website.

www.bhg.com/recipes/

I use this site extensively, but I'm not sure how easy it is to find single serving recipes.

Thanks DJ for the link! I found a few recipes that I could definately use.

Does anyone else have other sites to go to for recipes? Post them here so we can all use it too.

Even cooking for 2 can be a problem since most recipes serve 4 or 6.

You might try checking out Taste of Home's Cooking for 2 site to look for recipes for 1. You can find them if you do an advanced search for all recipes that have just 1 serving. It will give you a fairly good list. I can't vouch for all of them, but Taste of Home usually has some pretty good recipes. I've included that link below. Some recipes you can access only if you subscribe to one of their magazines, but there are a lot available that are not protected.

I use a program called Master Cook 9 to enter maintain my recipes. It adjusts serving sizes and ingredient amounts for me and is much easier than trying to do the calculations myself. For us, I make a lot of casseroles that serve 4. I make the recipe up to the point where it is ready for the final cooking phase, then divide it into the servings I need and freeze the extra to use at a later date. If it needs cheese or something added during cooking, I do that when I finally use it. Doing it this way cuts my prep time down a lot and it also is fresh and less leftovery when I use it. I also make a lot of soups/slow cooker meals and freeze the extra for future use. This also does save prep time down the road and also means we do not have to eat the same thing 2 or 3 days in a row.

Hope the website helps. Good luck!

I agree with you about recipes. Living alone, I get tired of eating leftovers. I would like some simple recipes for 1 person. When I try to cut back a recipe it does not always work. emoticon

Ok I am bad about some foods. But my thing on here are the recipes. Its just like watching some of the food network shows, it looks good but who in their right mind would make that or where would you buy the stuff to make it?

I need some recipes that normal people make. (sorry if you make them, not really calling you abnormal) Plus I need things that DH would eat. I cant make 2 meals every day. And I would like them easy. Is that too much to ask?

I know Im being difficult, but I need help. Im tired of eating the same stuff because I cant find good recipes.

HEEEELP!!
