"<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>"

    Good quick easy recipe. I used sweet frozen corn, all the kids loved it.

    This was really good. Love not turning on the oven.Next time I will probably add some garlic but that is personal taste. Also, it was sticking to the bottom of the pan way before the final 20 minute cooking period was up. it didn't seem to suffer from the shorter cooking time.This is going in my permanent cook book. Thanks for a winner, ellie.

    I used low-fat sour cream and substituted low-fat cheddar for half the monterey jack. I didn't stir during the last cooking period and had it stick the pan a bit, but still it tasted great. Served with Jazze22's Wonderful Salsa (Recipe #9272), which I canned last summer. Delicious!
