Weight Watcher’s Buffalo Chicken Pizza

weight watcher's buffalo chicken pizza 001

I've had a Buffalo style chicken pizza on this blog before, but it wasn't really Weight Watcher friendly. When using a Boboli Whole Wheat Pizza crust, you can have buffalo chicken pizza at home for only 5 points a slice! Maybe make sure to have a light lunch that day, cause you're going to want to have at least 3 slices of this pizza when you get home from work. Speaking of work, the pizza is even better the next day for leftovers. If you like your pizza REALLY hot, you can use the extra hot ...

Homemade Maraschino Cherries

homemade marischino cherries 014

Homemade Maraschino Cherries are so simple to make. Pit all the cherries with a cherry pitter and then cook them in a pot with some water, sugar, and vanilla extract. Let that cool, and then drain the cherry juice. Make sure to keep the cherry juice because that is when you add in the Maraschino Liqueur. Store the cherries and syrup in a jar, and at your next party, you'll have your own homemade maraschino cherries! Yesterday I did a lot of shopping. Had to go to Wal-mart and get ...

Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Ice Cream (Copy Cat)

chocolate cherry icecream 008

Since it's Cherries for Charity week, I picked up  a 3 pound bag of cherries for a $1.99 a pound. The grocery store donates .25  of every pound of cherries sold to a local charity here in town. That is the best deal ever for cherries. Lately, they've been 3.99 a pound. Trust me, I'll be back for about 2 or 3 more bags of cherries by the end of the week. I'll be looking for more cherry recipes to make too. My favorite Ben and Jerry's ice cream flavor is Cherry Garcia. It has chunks of c ...

Bacon and Cheeseburger Pizza

bacon cheeseburger pizza 016

This weekend was filled with Northern Lights, a red moon, and fireworks. 50+ some mosquito bites later, and it was all worth it though. Now, it's back to the work grind. On Sunday when I got home, I made a cheese burger pizza. It was the perfect way to use up the left over ground beef. It's your typical cheeseburger but transformed into a pizza. What are your favorite burger toppings? Mine was always pickles, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, and bacon.  Some people like raw onions on their ...

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 ...
