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!

Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes

slow cooker creamy mashed potatoes 035

      You will not miss the fat in these garlic mashed potatoes, I swear! The potatoes cook on low for 6 to 7 hours and by the time the potatoes are done they are so tender.  The touch of a fork made them fall apart instantly. The original recipe called for parmesan cheese and sour cream and since my husband is lactose intolerant, I made these potatoes dairy free. I really REALLY wanted to put the dairy in them, but once you mashed them with a potato masher, or used some beaters to m … [Read more...]

Sausage and Apple Hash

sausage and apple hash 020

Well guys, you want to know what is sad? I have Weight Watcher recipes on my site and I can't even lose weight. I've been tracking my daily calorie intake  for 17 days straight using myfitnesspal and that is not working. All I've managed to lose is a pound.  I needed something to hold me more accountable so I joined up with Weight Watcher's again. Yep, it's time. This is going to be my last bad recipe post for a long time. That is kind of the reason why I haven't been posting many new recipes l … [Read more...]

Alton Brown’s Homemade Candy Corn

homemade candy corn 009

This homemade candy corn recipe from Alton Brown is super easy to make, and you will never want to buy store bought candy corn again! Usually candy making is very intimidating for me. Dealing with thermometers and boiling sugar is not my cup of tea. I'd rather just mix something in a stand mixer and bake that in the oven. Now, I'm thinking I might go into my own candy corn making business. It was really fun to roll the sugar mess into ropes and make the ropes look yellow and orange. You have … [Read more...]

Candy Corn Cookie Pizza

Candy Corn Cookie Pizza 002

It's National Candy Corn day on October 30th, did you know that? Candy corn is everybody's favorite candy right? I guess it depends on the person because I've seen a lot of facebook pages ask whether or not they like candy corn lately. Some hate it, others love. It's kind of like cilantro. You either hate it or love it. At least candy corn doesn't taste like dish soap. I had to stop myself after eating one slice of this pizza! It was so good with some ice cream on top. Do you know why I … [Read more...]

Weight Watcher’s Spaghetti Carbonara

spaghetti carbonara 021

I've been eating a lot of eggs lately with an English muffin. I was getting kind of bored of that, so I changed it up a bit. I can't get enough of English muffins with the nooks and crannies and then a little melted butter on that. Yummmmmm.....   Sometimes, I'll add some bacon on top and cheese to make a breakfast sandwich. Spaghetti Carbonara is almost like a deconstructed version of that sandwich. The noodles are the English muffins that the cheese and egg sticks too, and then the bacon. If … [Read more...]

Bloody Monster Eyeball Meatballs

blooy eyeballs

Meatballs are such a pain in the butt to cook on a stove top. It is so much easier to bake them in the oven. You don't have to worry about ruining the meatballs when it comes time to flip them, or having grease splatter at you. Trust me, I've ruined lots of meatballs in my life trying to flip them over in a pan. I'm making them this way from now on. I found the meatball recipe on pinterest and the idea to make the bloody eyeballs as well.  It's fun making food for Holidays and trying to … [Read more...]

Halloween Brownie Truffles

halloween brownie truffles 007

Have you ever had left over brownies before and didn't know what to do with them? Well, the obvious thing to do, would be to eat them.  Leftover brownies are a good base for  truffles. Use a food processor to break them up into smaller pieces so that they're easier to roll into a ball and melt some chocolate in a microwave for the glue. Roll them up into beautiful little balls and decorate them with  various things like pretzels, coconut, sprinkles, chocolate, etc. They're fun to make and super s … [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

creamy tortillini soup 003

Happy Saturday! This morning I got up before 7am and put everything in the crock pot to make this recipe before spin class. I've had a very productive morning before 9am. Got lunch/dinner ready and got my exercise in. I've been trying to eat healthier and counting calories using myfitnesspal. It's getting easier and I'm starting to learn how much calories I can eat in a day. I've been also trying to do more cardio lately. I've been stuck in this gym rut and I just finally got out of it this … [Read more...]
