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!

Easy Stuffed Roast Turkey with Giblet Gravy

Thanksgiving Day 008

  I didn't have to do any cooking for Thanksgiving this year, but I thought I would just share this turkey recipe we had on Thanksgiving Day.  The turkey was cooked all the way  (my brother tested it with a thermometer). We watch cooking shows and do research on this stuff. I've watched Alton Brown for the last 3 years on how to cook a Turkey. However, the turkey was a little pink towards the body and my mom and Grandma thought that it wasn't done.  A little pink is fine and doesn't nec ...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day 025

I normally don't post a lot of Thanksgiving recipes on this blog.  Stuffing I don't like the next day, green bean casserole is just blah... plus that is a lot of leftovers for just one person. This is what my family likes to eat on Thanksgiving day. My family knows I like taking pictures of food so this was what I was in charge of doing. :) My brother did most of the cooking this year. The turkey was so juicy and moist but then the people who don't watch cooking shows all the time, decided to ...

Pumpkin Granola and Orange Cranberry Yogurt Parfaits 012

Nothing like having a nice little ice rink when you pull out of your drive way. It finally snowed and holy moly was it ever windy! Last night, it was so windy, I thought someone was trying to break into my house. I heard the back yard patio door swing open and it sounded like someone was knocking on the door.  North Dakota welcomes winter with a little mini ground blizzard this morning. Yay.. Is it Spring yet?! Just/kidding.   This is hands down the best granola I've ever made. The ...

One Skillet Southwestern Chicken

one skillet southwestern chicken 020

  I am so tired of rain! The last two weeks, that is all  the weather has been doing. It will rain for almost two days straight.  The weather will get really nice on the weekend and then somewhere in the middle of the week the temperatures will hover in low 40's and at night they will get down to almost below freezing temps. You never know what you're going to wake up to some mornings. Will there be a nice thin layer of ice on the ground when I wake up? So far, I've been lucky but this wee ...

Southwestern Egg Rolls with Salsa Dipping Sauce

baked southwestern eggrolls 014

I saw Valerie Bertininelli make these Southwestern Egg Rolls with Salsa Dipping Sauce so many times on her show recently and they looked so good. You know how Food Network likes to re-show the same show over and over again? That right there, just sucked me in, and I had to try these out. Also, have you noticed how Food Network has been giving shows to stars that do acting on tv shows? Varerie and Patricia Heaton now have their own cooking shows on FN. These egg rolls  are stuffed with b ...

Peanut Butter Apple Nachos

peanutbutter apple nachos 006

This is my favorite new way to eat apples and it will be your favorite too! Melt some peanut butter in the microwave. I melted about a tablespoon of peanut butter in the microwave for about a minute. The peanut butter becomes melted and is now drizzleable. Is that even a word? Drizzleable?  Use a mandoline to thinly  slice the apples. You can use a knife, but it would be a lot harder to get them all the right size. In another bowl, melt some semi sweet chocolate chips and drizzle that over th ...
