Default What's your favorite place to look for new recipes?

Well, I am just about 4 months into my diet plan (WW @ Home) and I have decided it's time to try new recipes! I have been looking through a WW cookbook and also a Diet and utrition magazine, but would like more options on places to find recipes.

I don't mind trying new things, although I am not a huge fan of fish. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I subscribe to Cooking Light magazine and I also read ... oh ... about 30 food blogs (I RSS them, so it's easier to read). A lot of the recipes are high calorie/high fat, but I'm pretty good at taking a recipe and "tweaking" it so that it works.

I have about 300 recipes from the blogs that I want to try - working through them one at a time! Of course I keep adding new ones as well, so I'm not sure the number will ever actually reach zero!

Count me in for allrecipes also. I like that the recipes are rated and that others provide feedback, which gives me ideas and often clues me in on if I'm going to like a recipe or not.

Visit me on Sparkpeople!

I go to www.weightwatchers.com (you can sign up to be able to read and post on their community message boards for free). One of the community message boards is "Recipe Review". There are a lot of great recipes there. Of course I'm sure you know there are a lot of recipes in various areas in 3fatchicks.

Also, Veggie Venture: http://aveggieventuresrecipebox.blog...-watchers.html

Another one: http://www.recipecircus.com/recipes/awsum34/

If you live near a Trader Joe's: http://blog.cookingwithtraderjoes.com/

This one doesn't have recipes, but it has great reviews on low calorie diet type foods/products: http://www.yummydietfood.com/

I subscribe to EatingWell, Cooking Light, and Everyday Food, from Martha Stewart. I also watch some of the food programs on TV. The cooking magazine have websites that you can read for free.

another vote for zaar - www.recipezaar.com it's my fave - not all of their stuff is healthy, but they do have nutritional value and you can sort your search based on the highest ratings, lowest calories, etc. and if you're looking for weight watchers for instance you can put WW in front of your search and find what you're looking for.

I subscribe to Cooking Light and each month I earmark the recipes I want to try. Then I take the magazine up to work and photocopy each one. I have tons of recipes to try.

I love CL since their focus is on healthier foods and they list the nutritional data with the recipe.
