I became involved with this recipe during my "I will not eat anything with fat in it stage 20+ years ago" My poor family suffered. One day, I threw out everything that had everything to do with fat! But I am pleased to say that I was blessed with the cookbook"Simply Colorado, Nutritious Recipes for Busy People from the Colorado Dietetic Association. There is no ISBN number but I have loads of recipes. Skinny Fries, Garbanzo Nuts to name a few
Send a letter to Colorado Dietetic Association, 6930 So. Bemis Street, Littleton, CO 80120. You won't be sorry to get this little charm.
