Baked Funfetti Glazed Doughnuts

baked funfetti doughnuts 024

Happy Wednesday! Here's a little tip. If you want to get back at someone you don't like at the moment, go to a health insurance site and enter in their phone number to the site and press the enter button when looking for quotes. They'll get spammed up to wazoo in phone calls! I accidentally did that, and now I'm getting calls from all over the US. They started on Friday and now, I probably have up to 80 phone calls from missed insurance companies. I'm not kidding you! Don't ever do that for ...

Strawberry Margaritas and a new Lens!

strawberry margaritas 035

Hola people! In honor of getting my new 40 mm macro lens, I thought I'd give it a test drive with some fresh strawberry margaritas.  So far I'm loving this new lens. It came with a bunch of cleaning utensils for your camera lens like a cloth and a pen.  Getting new toys for your camera is so much fun. This is my 7th camera lens now and I think I'm done buying them for awhile. I always say that, but ended up finding new ones. I really wanted a 55 MM camera lens that had a macro function on there t ...

Weight Watcher’s Turkey, Corn, and Black Bean Chili

turkey chili with corn and black beans 023

This Turkey, Corn, and Black Bean chili is simply divine. I like to play around with the spices in my chili. Usually, it's a combo of 2 tablespoons of chili powder, 1 tsp of cumin, and some cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes. The addition of canned chipotle peppers in this is wonderful and I will be adding some every time I make chili now! Top this with some reduced fat cheddar cheese, sour cream or cilantro. That would be additional points of course, one serving of this chili is only 5 ...

Weight Watcher’s Easy Cherry Crisp

easy cherry crisp 022

Happy Friday! I have the day off since it's Good Friday,  so I decided to make some cherry crisp. This recipe is so ridiculously easy it's almost embarrassing. Instead of baking the crisp in the oven, you could make this in the microwave. The reason why this cherry crisp is easy, is that it calls for store bought granola. If you make it homemade, you have to combine all the ingredients in a stander mix including butter, oatmeal, sugar, flour, etc. Use whatever frozen fruit you have on ...

Cheesy Chicken Jalapeno Popper Taquitos

jalapeno popper taquitos 015

Since the Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are doing so well on this blog(hope I don't jinx that), I decided to make the Jalapeno Popper Taquitos. I never used to like jalapenos. I one time got one in my eye and it wasn't any fun. Tried to get the nasty burn out of my eye for probably an hour. Wet wash cloths are good for that.  I decided in the future, I'll just use the already canned ones.  Then I don't have to bother chopping them at all. Much, much easier. These taquitos are stuffed w ...

Crispy Chicken Cobb Salad

chicken tender cobb salad 012

Photography is such an expensive hobby. There's a new lens that I'm interested in getting now. It's another macro lens, but this one is a 40 mm macro lens and the lowest aperture setting is 2.8. The one I already have is a 100 MM macro lens and the lowest is setting is 3.5. The 100 mm lens is such a pain when trying to take a real close up of some food. You can't stand too close to the food or else it won't take a picture, have to be a couple of feet away. This other lens will allow me to be ...

Hawaiian Quesadillas

hawaiian quesadilla 010

Aloha from Hawaii.  I WISH I was in Hawaii right now. My friends are there soaking up the sun right now and I am so jealous of them! You should have packed me in your bags! This weekend, I cooked a 7.8 pound ham. That's a lot of ham for only two people living in one house. There was a brown sugar glaze recipe that I wanted to try, and the ham ended up over cooking. The recipe was planned to go on this blog, but never ended up getting on here because of the burnt crispy edges around the ham ...

Ham and Asparagus Frittata

asparagus and ham fritatta 015

Frittata's are pretty awesome and so easy. No flipping, no scrambling, and no waiting until the egg yolk is set in the  middle and the whites are done. My favorite type of egg is over easy, but with a frittata all you do is add everything into a bowl, pour in a pan, and let the oven do the rest for you! Mix in whatever vegetables or protein you like. My favorites are chorizo, ham, bacon, cheese, and broccoli. Potatoes are also great, but will take a longer cooking time. To make this dairy ...
