Hey there!

So, today's my last day off from work. I return to my h-ll tomorrow. :( Which means you won't be hearing from me as often as you have lately (ok, quit cheering! lol!).

Anyway, this morning, I decided to make me a "healthy" breakfast. I was following a recipe from a health magazine that sounded interesting and was excited about eating it.....

Well, let me tell you....it did NOT taste so great! I didn't want to waste the food so I ate most of it, but it was hard swallowing it down.

This is the second recipe I've tried from this magazine that wound up tasting horrible! Makes me wonder if they actually taste their own recipes.

Do you ladies ever try the recipes in these magazines? Ever have success with one? Care to share with a great tasting, but yet, healthy and simple recipe?

Maybe it's just me -- maybe I messed up doing something with the ingredients, but how can you mess up a yogurt parfait??! lol.

Well, my breakfast may have failed, but let's see how today goes....I'm gonna get ready to tackle my last day off.

Enjoy the rest of your day, ladies!

Thanks for looking up the recipes. If you or the other gals know any vegetarian recipes, that'd be great as well!

He is a vegetarian and is trying to get me to follow a vegetarian diet. I have somewhat reduced my meat intake, but it's mostly red meat. I do still eat chicken, turkey or tuna. Plus anyway, I don't have to handle meat, which I prefer (less chance of food contamination).

There's this particular vegetarian cookbook that I seem to like. I've tried 2-3 of the recipes in there and they've come out pretty ok for the most part. There's this one tofu dish that I LOVE making, though.

Yeah, I think there's probably a reason why I almost always tend to skip the recipes section in these magazines (because even though they "sound" interesting to make, they may "taste" yucky! lol.).

hmmm...well i'm not sure about strictly vegetarian dishes but i use allrecipes.com quite a bit. be sure to read reviews of recipes you find since others who try them have suggestions on how to make them better...what works and what doesn't.
another site people use, i haven't, is epicurious.com
hope that helps!!!
oh..and the footnetwork.com :)

I've had some that worked, and some that were all but inedible.


For vegetarian recipes that are delish, though, try the Vegetarian Cooking

I do, but not from the health magazines. Try the ones from Rachel Ray and the Food Network. Much, much better!
