Weight Watcher’s Frozen Grasshopper Pie

this pisses me off 2839

St Patrick's Day is only good for one thing and that is MINT. Mint and chocolate are meant to be together. At least I know that much is true. This is a no bake pie. It starts off with instant pistachio pudding. That sounds really weird for a mint dessert doesn't it? It works though, so trust me on this one. Next,  fold in some cool whip and mint extract and then poor it over a pie crust. Pop the pie in the freezer and wait for a couple hours for the pie to set. This pie takes no time to ...

Simple Tomato Soup

simple tomato soup 015

Daylight Savings is tomorrow. That means it will be light out later on at nights now! Food bloggers LOVE that. Woohoo!   I was pretty floored by this tomato soup when I tried it. Got the recipe from Pinch of Yum's website. It literally BLEW my mind.  This soup starts off with sauteing some bacon and onions in a pot. The smell of bacon and onions cooking together is the best foodie smell EVER. Usually, I don't go back for seconds on soup, but with this soup I had too. Some kind of grilled c ...

Dulce de Leche Cookie Bars

dulce de leche cookie bars 003

I learned a very important lesson this week.  Well maybe 2 lessons. 1. None of the things that I think about in my head are real and made up and 2. Don't be afraid to ask people shit. If something is bothering you just ask them. I'm pretty good at bottling things up inside and when I'm finally fed up with it, I explode. That's probably not a very good thing either. Sigh. That equals to high blood pressure and a whole day of eating nothing but carbs. In other good news, I am back down ...

Crock Pot Dulce De Leche

This post is preparing  for a post for a bar recipe tomorrow. The main grocery store in town that I shop at didn't have any dulce de leche, they used to but stopped carrying it. Scratch that, so I decided to make my own. You want to know how easy this is to make? All you need are jars, a can of sweetened condensed milk, and a crock pot.  This takes about 8 hours to make in my crock pot, used an 8 quart slow cooker. You can start to tell when the sweetened condensed milk is starting to turn into d ...

Honey Walnut Shrimp Copy Cat

I love it how the Internet is exploding over what color a dress is lately. I saw gold and white on my monitor. Then again, since I am a graphic designer, I also wonder how many pictures of this dress is going around on the Internet and how many times it's been changed? Hmmmmmm.... Anyways.... I've been kind of bored at nights lately and need a hobby to do. So far, I've thought of joining a swim team and starting up my violin again. I had to go back to my childhood and think of things that I ...

Lighter Beijing Beef { Weight Watcher’s }

This may sound a bit crazy but  I've never had anything at Panda Express before up until about a month ago. They have been open up in the new strip mall here, and just right across from Panda Express is a brand spanking new Chipotle. It's been too busy to go in there yet. My town that I live in is known for chain restaurants, but up until now we had never had a Panda Express or Chipotle. Crazy right?! I believe we did used to have a Panda Express in the mall. Panda Express is so stinking ...

Chili Lime Almonds

This weekend I saw the movie 50 Shades of Grey. I read the books and even wrote a cookbook about it. Look to the right of the side bar to see it on amazon. ---> The movie would have been twice as better if they involved bacon in the plot somehow. Don't you think? I was expecting too much after reading the book.  In my opinion, the book was pretty much a porn. Oh Dear Lord, did she just say porn on a food blog?! My blog does involve food porn ya know. :0)  50 Shades of Grey shouldn't  have be ...
