Hi, I'm Jenna. Located in Fargo, ND where it's freezing all the time. This blog started out as Weight Watcher Recipes site, and grew into a more wide variety of food. I still post those types of recipes every now and then so if you're into Weight Watchers check back often!

4th of July Weekend in Pictures

th of july 190

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! There's been a lot of haze and smoke from the Canadian wild fires in North Dakota and Minnesota. I was afraid it would ruin the weekend, but it never did. We hadn't seen  blue sky for 5 days straight, and on Saturday afternoon we finally saw blue sky. There was enough blue sky in the area, and it cleared up. so that you could see the stars and Northern Lights. Yep, I finally got to see the famous Northern Lights this weekend. I went outside at ...

Red, White, and Blue Rosemary and Parmesan Potatoes

red white and blue potatoes 001

Need a last minute side dish for this weekend? Look no more! These red, white, and blue potatoes are perfect for a colorful and festive Summer side dish for the 4th of July.  My favorite color happens to be purple and potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables. My first instinct was to take the bag right away. Usually, when I'm shopping at a clothing store, I will only take things that say "Take me, Take me" in the back of my mind because I love it so much. I guess you could say the same rule ...

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. It's just your typical tomato, basil, and mozzarella. Use a whole grain penne pasta. Barilla has one with 19 grams of protein. Just make sure to watch your ...

Berry Tart with Lemon Cookie Crust

mixed berry and lemon tart 009

Every time this happens. When I've wanted to go out into my garden and actually do some work in it like weeding, it stinking rains! For once I'd just like to go out there and clear out all the weeds in the garden. Can you believe that next weekend is already the 4th of July? It's great because we get a 3 day weekend that week, but it is also sad because that means that Summer is almost half ways over with for us. To celebrate 4th of July, I made this patriotic red, white, and blue Mixed ...

Skinny Creamy Mac and Cheese

creamy mac and cheese 018

This post is in preparation for an upcoming post sometime in the next day or two here.  Just wait until you see what I plan on doing with the leftovers tomorrow. :) This creamy mac and cheese is only 9 WWP+ per serving! Instead of making a roux with butter, the flour is added to milk and whisked until the flour is dissolved. Then the milk gets poured into the remaining milk mixture and it thickens! Who needs butter when making mac and cheese? Some panko bread crumbs get toasted on top of the ...

Weight Watcher’s Sex in a Pan

    Have you ever heard of this crazy dessert called Sex in a Pan before? It has 5 different layers. The first layer is a crust layer that has nuts, flour, and butter. You're typical cookie crust. The second layer is cream cheese, sugar, and whipped topping. The third and fourth layer is vanilla pudding and chocolate pudding. Use instant, no reason to go all out and make your own pudding here. The final layer is cool or whipping cream. Now, does that not want to make you go and hop into a p ...

Overnight Blueberry Coffee Cake

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 ...

Cookie Butter Rice Crispy Treats

cookie butter rice crispy treats 001

These rice crispy treats are loaded with cookie butter from Trader Joe's. If you don't have a Trader Joe's near you, you can always use Biscoff spread. You can find it at Wal-mart and it's usually by the peanut butter. I'm finally out of cookie butter and must stock up at Trader Joe's this weekend. Their cookie butter is so good, you can just eat it with a spoon. They also have these Speculoos (sp?) candy bars. It's cookie butter inside dark chocolate. The last of my cookie butter went into ...
