Bunny Bark

bunny bark 011

Easter is already here next weekend. I thought this bunny bark looked super cute when I saw it on pinterest. It's not only super cute but super good. I like the fact that it's sweet, but when you bite into the pretzel you get the saltiness. You can do so many different variations of this. You could use the Spring Time oreos for more color, jelly beans, or m&m's. I used double stuffed oreos, pretzels, and malted milk eggs. This bark screams Easter to me and I think it's really something … [Read more...]

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

raisinbread 007

I read the Hunger Games this weekend. I wanted to see what all the hype was about now that the movie is out. I was kind of confused why the Capitol made the children go out and fight to death, and I found it interesting the different types of food they ate in the future and how hard it was to find the food. I won't go on and say anything else so I don't spoil it for someone who hasn't read the book yet. Since they ate a lot of bread  in the movies, I decided to make some of my own this … [Read more...]

3 Point Enchilada Fail!

enchilada test 008

You know how Weight Watchers has those commercials where they mention the 2 point Enchiladas? I'm not sure whether or not it's 3 points or 2. Anyways... I thought that was too good to be true. I searched and searched for a recipe online and couldn't find one.  I also thought the only way to have that done was to use some kind of vegetable as the tortilla. Then,  I came across this tortilla that was only 50 calories and 7 grams of fiber. It's a Smart & Delicious tortilla and it's good o … [Read more...]

Breakfast Cookie

I'm learning how to knit. A co-worker is teaching me how to do it and it's not as hard as I thought it would be. She gave me this recipe for a ginormous  breakfast cookie. If you add in extra things to it like a 1 tablespoon of raisins, chocolate chips, or m & m's it's 6 points. Without that stuff it's only 5. I think a mashed banana or some cinnamon would be good with this too. All the ingredients together reminded me of one of those oatmeal packets but in the shape of cookie. Which, in my … [Read more...]

Alton Brown’s Meatloaf

meatloaf

Ben and I are fans of Alton Brown and just recently, Ben bought his cookbook online. We've been wanting to try the meatloaf recipe, but didn't want to spend oodles of money on ground chuck and sirloin. I subbed extra lean ground turkey for this recipe and loved the taste. The meatloaf however was over cooked. I don't know what my problem is with cooking meat to the right temperature? We had a thermomoter too and I was pulling it out to check what the temp was after 30 minutes. Not even close. I … [Read more...]

Healthier Shamrock Shake

shamerockshake

I like how thick and creamy the shamrock shake at Mcdonald's is. I think it'd be kind of complicated to make it at home since Mcdonald's uses soft serve ice cream that comes right out of their machine. Usually when we buy it in the stores it's hard so , that is the main reason why I think it'd be difficult to make it that way. Store bought works just as good though. I think if you really wanted to you could go to an ice cream store  that sells just ice cream and ask for some soft serve. Or, if … [Read more...]

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

whoopie2 004

  In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, I made you a red velvet whoopie pie. I know what you're thinking.... shouldn't it be green? Well... a whoopie pie really isn't Irish now is it? ;)  Ha, just kidding. I managed to make a whoopie pie for only 5 points a pie. I tried making it lighter but I couldn't think of what else to change.  Some muffins are around 5 points a piece  so I thought this was ok. If you really want to, you could have a whoopie pie in place of your muffin for br … [Read more...]

Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas

buffalo chicken quesadilla 1165

  At the store last weekend, I bought 2 rotisserie chickens. They were on sale 2 for $10. There's so many different chicken dishes using rotisserie chicken that you can make and this is one of them. I've also made buffalo chicken wraps, using the same method that I made the chicken fajita rollups with. I love Frank's hot sauce, but the stuff gives me major heart burn and I only will eat it every once and while. If you love buffalo chicken anything then give this a try. Add in some … [Read more...]
