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!

Lighter Beijing Beef

being beef and noodles 015

This may sound a bit crazy but  I've never had anything at Panda Express before up until about a month ago. They have been open up in the new strip mall here, and just right across from Panda Express is a brand spanking new Chipotle. It's been too busy to go in there yet. My town that I live in is known for chain restaurants, but up until now we had never had a Panda Express or Chipotle. Crazy right?! I believe we did used to have a Panda Express in the mall. Panda Express is so stinking ...

Chili Lime Almonds

chili cilantro almonds 012

This weekend I saw the movie 50 Shades of Grey. I read the books and even wrote a cookbook about it. Look to the right of the side bar to see it on amazon. ---> The movie would have been twice as better if they involved bacon in the plot somehow. Don't you think? I was expecting too much after reading the book.  In my opinion, the book was pretty much a porn. Oh Dear Lord, did she just say porn on a food blog?! My blog does involve food porn ya know. :0)  50 Shades of Grey shouldn't  have be ...

Ok guys, you are obsessed with Buffalo Chicken! The Buffalo Chicken Baked Taquitos have gone viral and have been pinned over 16K times since last month. Yay!

It's super easy to make if you have a slow cooker. Just throw in some frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot for 8 hours with some water. The water poaches the chicken ...

Chorizo and Pepper Jack Stuffed Manicotti

mexican chorizo manicotti 011

  This recipe idea came to me when I was looking in my fridge to see what I had leftover. In my fridge was chroizo, leftover pepper jack cheese, and a jalapeno. I had been eyeballing a manicotti recipe that I was going to make and so I thought what if I stuffed the leftover chorizo  in the manicotti mixture with cottage cheese?  Then top it off with some more cheese and jalapenos?  It's fun to see what kind of new recipe ideas you can make in your head just with leftovers in the fridge. I fre ...

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes

cheesy bacon ranch potatoes 018

Ok, so this probably isn't the HEALTHIEST side dish ever but at least I tried to portion control this. I used 2 medium red potatoes and between those two potatoes there's enough for three servings. 2 slices of bacon, heck even one slice would do, reduced fat colby cheese and fat free ranch dressing. YUM! You spray the potatoes with cooking spray to get them nice and crispy and bake them in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. They come out perfect every time! I have discovered that ...

Slow Cooker Corn and Jalapeno Dip

corn and jalapeno dip 2 005

Hello everyone, I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day. Mine wasn't so great. On our way to taking my husband to the airport, we discovered my car had a flat tire. It's completely flat, and I don't know how to change them. Tomorrow, I'm going to have to call around the city and ask different car dealerships who can pick my car up and take it in to have a tire replaced. Thankfully, my husband still has his car at home and I can drive that around all week. His car tires were replaced this Fall ...

Chocolate Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies

double double white chocolate chip cookies 023

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, is that enough chocolate for you? Tis the week for chocolate! These cookies are made with cocoa powder, white chocolate chips, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. That's 3 types of chocolate packed all in one cookie.  I almost dislike this time of year for that very reason! All the food channels show non stop shows about chocolate and I think they do that on purpose. To make you want it even more. Darn, this Holiday! This recipe is from a Food Network star and I've ...

Hoisin-and-Honey Glazed Chicken Thighs

hoisen and honey bbq chicken thighs 015

O - M - G people. The midseason premiere of the Walking Dead is FINALLY on tonight. It's been soooooooooo long since the last episode (which made me cry like a baby by the way).  I am so excited for it to finally be back on again. RIP Beth. I hope the opener isn't of them putting her in her grave, I don't want to cry again. It will be me and a big bowl of buttery popcorn tonight. I bought 2 3.5 pound packages of chicken thighs at the grocery store for only $4.00 today. That's  7 pounds ...
