I love this one. This site actually is awesome for recipes. I love it NOT that I cook that much, mind you, but it has great vegetarian recipes on it.

ooo thanx menag, went to the site, first recipe is something I like right off, feta and sun dried tomatoes. I started a thread once about cooking, I think it was something like "who likes to cook" ? I do not like to cook but the problem is my husband loves to eat...so I won't be getting rid of the stove too soon.

An easy recipe? Here's one I like for the crockpot (aka slow cooker ) -- doesn't get much easier than this:

6 chicken breast halves
1 bottle good-quality barbecue sauce
1/2 cup white wine

Put everything in the crockpot and set to low for 8 hours. When done, shred the chicken with two forks and stir into the sauce.

You can use this mixture for different dishes:

Pulled chicken sandwich -- put on a sandwich roll and top with coleslaw

Barbecue chicken pizza -- Top a pizza crust with chicken, cheddar cheese and bits of bacon. After baking, sprinkle with chopped green onions.

Or invent your own.

When I did eat meat the chicken crockpot recipe was one of my favorites

Kraft kitchen has a website you can visit. Once you sign up they will send you recipes periodically, too.

Yes, sign up for Kraft and Campbells. Kraft has a free quarterly magazine that you can subscribe to that has tons of recipes in it.

Here's one of mine:

Tilapia (fish) Packets

Heat oven to 400.
Take a sheet of foil and put about a teaspoon of olive oil on it.
Place a thawed tilapia fillet on the foil and season it with whatever on both sides( I use lemon pepper and Tony Chachere's)
Dump some frozen broccoli or other frozen veggies on it. Add a little more seasoning on the veggies.
Close up the foil and make a little packet with it.

Place on cookie sheet or whatever, bake for 15 minutes.
Check the fish at this point and if it is done it will flake easily with a fork. If still a little raw, stick it back in for a few more minutes and check again.

I think this is about 3 Weight Watchers points or less. I only add the olive oil because I was in WW and thats one of the daily things they want you to have. But you can skip it if you want.
