A few years back I started the Weight Watchers program.
Once or twice a year they publish a special magazine filled with recipes.
In June 2009, I purchased the Weight Watchers 20 Minute Cookbook
It features 174 recipes for all types of dishes.
One of my favorites is the Oatmeal-Buttermilk Pancakes (pg 11).
They're easy to make and very filling!
