Weight Watcher’s Caprese Pasta Salad

weight watcher's caprese pasta salad 016

I've been noticing a trend in the type of recipes you guys like lately, and what I've found was, that you guys mostly like pasta and casserole recipes. I've done Caprese pasta salads before on this blog, but not a Weight Watcher version. There's not a lot of difference between a lightened up version of this dish, and a regular version.

Overnight Blueberry Coffee Cake

overnight blueberry coffee cake 020

I am a sucker for buying magazines at the grocery store when I'm waiting in line to check out. My favorite food magazines are Better Homes and Garden and Food Network's magazine. I'll see a recipe in the magazine that I just have to try, and this is one of them. Overnight Blueberry Coffee Cake. One of the things I love about Better Homes and Garden is that they include the nutrition info in their recipes. That's perfect for people who are watching their weight and counting points. Have ...
