Kale, Pomegranate, Orange, and Kiwi Salad

pomegranatekale and kiwi salad 059

Pomegranates are in season and I wanted to make something with them. At the grocery stores they have the pomegranates that are already seeded for you, so you don't have to whack them out of there. I noticed them at the grocery store this week, but they are EXPENSIVE. It is much cheaper to buy your own pomegranate and get the seeds out yourself.  The first time I ever had a pomegranate was a disaster. Ben and I were trying exotic fruits at the grocery store, and we bought a pomegranate. We had no ...

Skinny Peppermint Fudge

skinny peppermint fudge 002

Skinny fudge you say? Is that even possible? Yes it is possible, because you can use fat free sweetened condensed milk and melt everything together in a microwave. This fudge comes together in no TIME!  Here's a good tip. Before you pour the chocolate into the pan, put some parchment on top of the plan, so you can easily lift the fudge out of the pan and cut it when it hardens. The hard part is letting it sit in the fridge, so it hardens up a bit. It's an easy recipe to use in your list ...

Skinny Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

skinny sugar cookies2 003

  You can bring these cookies to a a Holiday party and not let anyone know they were Weight Watcher Cookies. Believe me, no one will know the difference! They tasted like the sugar cookies my Grandma would always make but with less butter. Butter is my favorite baking ingredient to work with and when I bake, I don't want to leave that out! The blue frosting color I made, almost reminded me of the Disney Movie Frozen. Make them for that too. Theyre supposed to be snowflakes. Parden my ...

Hot and Spicy Sausage Dip

hot and spicy sausage dip 002

  Hot and spicy sausage dip is the perfect appetizer to bring to your next Holiday party and it only requires 3 ingredients. Three!  My last recipe was only 3 ingredients, did you notice that? I don't know if you'd even call this a recipe. All you do is brown some sausage, add the can of rotel tomatoes, and cream cheese, and call it a day. If your sausage isn't hot enough, feel free to add in 1/8 tsp of cayanne pepper or hot sauce. This dip is served best warm. The chips were from Sam's Club. T ...

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

chocolate peppermint cookies 016

Yesterday, was baking day. Made some Chocolate Peppermint Cookies, Pumpkin Cupcakes, and caramels. I'm STILL in a baking mood after all that. The caramels still need to be dipped in chocolate and they were made for a picture re-take from last year. It's my favorite caramel recipe. We went shopping at Sam's Club tonight and boy did I ever do something stupid. The guy at the check out said our card was expired. No it wasn't, my Mom and I got a shared membership there this summer, how can it ...

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey and Cranberry Paninis

black friday sandwich 072

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! On Thursday I ran the Huffin and Stuffin 5 k to burn a couple calories before the Thanksgiving meal. It was -13 below out and I was dressed in 3 layers of clothing. I've never ran in the Winter before and I ended up finishing in exactly 50 minutes. I walked for the most part but tried to run as much as I could. I'm going to be running outside in the Winter a lot this year.  Thank goodness for no wind that day. That would have been awful. We were ...

Zombie Themed Dinner Party

Sunday Night = Mid Season Finale of the Walking Dead. Holy Cow. How did it get here so fast? This season has  gone by so fast and now we'll all have to wait until February for any new shows to come on. I'm sitting here already crying because of this! I don't want to spoil too much for those who haven't watched it yet, so I'll try not to talk too much about the season. Some of my friends who read this blog daily, only get to watch it with Hulu or on the Internet. I'm a huge Walking ...
