    New Recipes: what catches your eye?

    What do you notice in a recipe that makes you want to try it? And what do you see that you avoid like the plague?

    I love seeing the following in recipes:
    garlic
    spinach
    feta
    broccoli
    cheese
    bacon
    sour cream

    And I avoid anything that has:
    peppers
    mushrooms
    Cream of Chicken soup (not that we don't like it, but DH can't have it and we haven't found a natural brand that he can have)

    How about you?

    hahaha. what carly said. i looooathe cooking. so for me recipes that say "easy", "fast", "one dish meal" appeal to me. it's so hard cooking for a hubby that doesn't love veggies, kids that don't have as evolved tastebuds as myself and then low-fat for me. it actually blows. cooking is the pits.

    it rather depends on the mood and the occasion I love to cook and bake, and I don't mind if it gets a bit complicated, though the easier and faster recipes are nice for week days

    as long as there's not olives or tofu or canned anything in it, I'm good

    Lately I've been doing a lot of baking and try to find recipes that use whole wheat flour and/or oats to make them healthier. I tend to try to stick on the healthier side for entree recipes, too, but have some basic staples that I usually stick with in that area. I did start making my spaghetti sauce from scratch, but my family isn't much into soups or casseroles (much to my dismay since I love both) so I don't get to try those kinds of recipes very often.

    Oh, I know, Kara, I don't do it often, but once in a while, that fried stuff is just GOOD!
