Favorite Weight Watchers Recipes??

Hi Fellow Hounds,

I just started Weight Watchers and I'm seeking people's favorite "go-to" recipes. My friend told me about Skinnytaste.com which is a treasure trove of recipes (fully equipped with the points and nutritional values).

Does anyone know of any other similar blogs/sites? Any other recipes that you love?

Thanks so much for your help.

    Similar to skinnytaste is www.eat-yourself-skinny.com. Also, if you care to, you can follow my Pinterest board for "tried and liked" recipes. I'm not on weightwatchers, but I have lost 50lbs this year, and I used Sparkpeople.com since July to help with the last part of that. Anything I've made in the past 6 months or so has been built in the sparkpeople recipe builder, so I include the calorie counts on my mini reviews on the pins.

    Here's the board: http://pinterest.com/julieanneco/foodz-tried-and-liked/ If you're not a pinterest user, you just have to click on the photo and it'll take you to the source site.

    You can see from there that I LOVE skinnytaste.com :) Oh, also myrecipes.com is where all the recipes from the Cooking Light magazine are kept, so there's a lot of great ones there too, with nutritional values.

    OH, also Sparkpeople has a recipe website, www.sparkrecipes.com, that has the nutritional info, and some people mention points value in the descriptions. I don't like it as much mainly because it doesn't have pretty pictures and some of the member submitted recipes are super wacky and/or incomplete. Some of the recipes that were created by the site's chef that I've tried have been good though.

      There are apparently many CHers doing weight watchers, witness the following threads:
