Breakfast Sandwich Frittata

breakfast sandwich fritatta 008

A frittata is basically like a huge omelet. You can throw whatever you want in there. A quiche is almost like a frittata but it has a pie crust. I wonder if this frittata would almost be considered a quiche since there was pitas in it? That almost acts like a pie crust. I was trying to picture a sandwich when I was making this.  The pita left almost an inch of space for the egg mixture. This is what it looked like before I flipped it over. See what I mean? And this is what it looked like … [Read more...]

Strawberry Pistachio Pops

strawberry-pistachio pops 002

I bought these lovely Tovolo groovy ice pop molds from amazon.com a long with a really nice camera bag for my Nikon D60 camera. I have 4 lenses now and the bag can hold up to about 10 different sized lenses. It even holds a 14 in notebook computer and tripod. It will be nice for going on trips. I don't know what I like more, my camera bag or these popsicle molds. They're a lot better than the previous popsicle molds that I had gotten. Those were too tiny and the caps didn't fit well. These … [Read more...]

Pistachio-Chai Muffins

pistachio-chai-muffins

Here is something that you might find odd. I've never really been able to make tea before. It either comes out too strong or not right. I've never tried Chai before either. Chai is a very interesting combination of flavors. It's a spice blend of Cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon. When these muffins were baking in the oven, I could definitely smell the cinnamon. The house smelled really good. These muffins are only 5 points plus a piece and the best part about these muffins are, that they still … [Read more...]

Tie Dyed Easter Eggs

tie eggs

I found this website that teaches you how to make your own tie dyed eggs. We went shopping for silk ties at the thrift store and found some. They were cheap and under $4.00 a tie. It was kind of hard to tell if it was a silk tie cause some of those polyester ties can feel like silk sometimes. They will say if it's silk or not, but most of the ties there didn't. How do you make these ty dyed eggs? You wrap the tie around the egg. Use some old cloth. I used left over bed sheets that we had used … [Read more...]

Strawberry-Avocado Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

avocado salsa with strawberry 002

I picked up a container of the most delicious strawberries at Sam's Club this weekend. I also ended up picking up some more Choboni yogurt and those Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Delight sandwiches. Those sandwiches are so filling! I had one at about 8:30 this morning and I wasn't hungry until about 12. One of those sandwiches is only 7 points and I think that's pretty decent for breakfast with some fruit. For lunch, I had this salsa. Probably not the best thing to have. It goes really good with … [Read more...]

Beet-elicious Cupcakes

beet cupcakes 022

I keep on taking a bite of these cupcakes and trying to see if I can taste the beets. I can definitely smell the beets. With the cream cheese frosting that I made for these it kind of balances the beet flavor  out. I think I screwed up with this recipe and didn't use the beet juice that came with the can too. The batter was really thick with out it. Since the batter was so thick, I ended up adding an egg and 1/8 cup of oil to help the batter out a bit. To make these red velvet, you can add in … [Read more...]

Easter Nests

  I can't believe it's already Easter on Sunday. I've been looking at a lot of Easter recipes online and have seen many different things. Like for instance Peeps S'mores and cake baked inside of eggs. I'm also excited for Ham and cheesy hash brown potatoes. That's usually my families Easter tradition. My job is to make the Strawberry pretzel Salad that I had posted about sometime last month. I also plan on bringing these. It's basically chow mein noodles and peanuts covered in … [Read more...]

Frozen Peanut Butter cups

sausage pizza 004

This an old WW dessert that I found about a year ago, and just remembered it about a couple of days ago. I like re-discovering old recipes like this and you forget how good they tasted. I kind of cheated on this recipe. I used a large muffin tin instead of the small one. That makes it for a pretty decent sized serving. But... if you use the small muffin tin, these are only 1 point per serving. Not too bad, I'd probably end up eating more than one of these or possibly the whole tin at once. … [Read more...]
