    I'll try that site.

    Weight Watchers online has a recipe converter. You can put in the ingredients of your favorite recipes and it converts it to healthier ingredients/proportions. I haven't tried it yet though.

    Hmmm, I'll have to check it out. I wonder if they can convert spinach artichoke dip to something healthier?

    Eh, it's not that important, but I thought foodfit had a feature like that. They have alternate recipes, but it's not searchable.

    You can if you have time though!
    I guess one step is using low fat/skim everything.

    I've always wondered how much they actually make off a box of cookies. When my neighborhood kids come around, I give them $10 and tell them to keep their cookies. I figure they get more profit on a $10 donation than they would on a $10 cookie order.

    They probably make a killing. $4- a box.

    BTW, it's nice that you give them the $10- as a donation.

    I keep pasta on the top of my kitchen cupboard (or whatever we all have agreed to call those thingies) alongside rice. Why? I don't know. I just do. I have ziti, 3 boxes of linguini, spaghetti, penne. The tri-colored bow ties seemed to have gotten too hard. I mean if I cook it for 20 minutes and it's still not soft like what I'm used to (I generally cook it for 8-10 minutes), then it's been up there too long.

    Anyway, in the bottom, I've realized that in addition to the vodka sauce I'd bought from the Italian deli near me, I also have a few jars in the cupboard. Crazy how things stock up when you haven't cooked Italian in awhile.

    Now onto the kitchen!!!

    That leads me to ask everyone a question, what are your favorite pasta types? I would say mine is Farfalle followed by Gemelli, Penne and thin Linguine
    Farfalle? Wow, I'll have to check out the box. It's like my saying "Italy" and someone saying "Italia". I'm like ... "Ooooooo-kayyyyyyyyyyy".

    My fave pastas for cooking:

    spaghetti
    penne (preferably the mini penne)
    rotini (the corkscrew ones)
    farfalle/bow ties

    My fave for eating (but I haven't made them successfully):

    lasagna (I should just try this over the weekend, since I have a 9x13" pan)
    baked ziti (that should be much easier than lasagna)

    A few I haven't tried in awhile:

    linguini (obviously w/white clam sauce)
    angel hair

    I remember when I lived in Brooklyn, the Italian place had some "pink sauce" that was creamy. That stuff rocked. I just put some regular spaghetti sauce with heavy cream and that worked. Lazy, but it was nice. They had Arabia or some other sauces. They all had a different flavor, but that place was way too addictive. You could take a nice girl there and have something to talk about.

    I wish I could find my oxtail. I had some, then some turkey legs and chicken. My usual "mixed bag of meat" soup that I picked up from some Spanish place that had some multi-meat soup. Anyway, doesn't work f/everyone, but I like it.

    I have some dry "bean soup" mix that I'm dying to try. I also have a few dry cans of navy beans, and some bean soups in the can. The ones in the can are already softened, so no need to boil them endlessly. Anyway, beans and meat seem to go well together for me.

    I made some seafood soup last week (shrimp, mussels, crabs legs, mixed seafood mix, etc). I got the fishy taste by adding 1/2 of a fish. Anyway, tasted good. My fault was that I'd added the noodles too early, so those went soggy. I'll have to remember that the next time.

    I was a cookie mom for years so I should remember this. They get a pretty large percentage of the sale price, which here is still $3.50.

    My daughter is in girl scouts also, for a $4 box, the troop makes .65 cents. All that work and they get so little.

    Yeah, I was a GS leader for a few years when my daughter was young. I remember the troop making very little, so muggs is better off giving the money to the troop so they can use it to save up for whatever they are fundraising for.

    What kind of recipes are you looking for? I usually just look them up online or use the book my crockpot came with. Sometimes I wing it.

    The key is not to add too much liquid because the liquid doubles in the crock pot. And if you are making something like chicken (with the bone), ribs or a roast, is to sear them in a pan or in the oven first.

    Let me know what you're looking for and I'll see if I can help.
