Caramel Apple Salad

caramel apple salad 018

Caramel apple salad is a light and refreshing Fall treat to make when apples are at their peak. You will never believe this Caramel Apple Salad is only 2 Points Plus on Weight Watcher's! Will I ever get to see the Northern Lights again? The last time I saw them was in college after an orchestra rehearsal and everybody was outside gawking at the Northern Lights. Since I've become an astronomy nerd(I like taking pictures of the night sky), I've been obsessed with getting a good picture of them. … [Read more...]

Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes

Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes 015

We had breakfast for dinner last night. Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes and Maple Sausage. Ben and I both really liked these pancakes. Ben liked them because they didn't have any dairy in it. He's lactose intolerant but will eventually every now and then enjoy some ice cream and  pizza. I liked these because the cinnamon and applesauce reminded me of Fall. Then I wanted to start baking last night. I was thinking of pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, everything with pumpkin. That season can not get … [Read more...]

Weight Watchers Key Lime Pie

key lime pie and oreo popcorn 003

Weight Watcher's Key Lime Pie is a light, frozen dessert best served in the Summer at a Barbeque when it's 90 degrees outside. There is no baking required either. I love simple pie recipes like this. It takes less than 10 minutes to make especially if you buy one of those pre-made graham cracker crusts at the store. I was so happy to find the lower fat graham cracker pie crust.You could do so many different flavor combinations with this pie. Just think of all the light yogurt's that Yo-Plait … [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pulled Pork

hawaiian pulled pork 004

I woke up on Sunday and was craving some pulled pork. Our smoker was in the patio and it sucks to drag it outside so I was lazy and decided to just throw it in the crock pot. I even had every ingredient to make this too. It calls for only 3 things. Canned pineapple, a red onion, and a cup of barbeque sauce. Canned pineapple is one of those pantry staples I like to keep on hand all the time a long with barbeque sauce. So, I've been seeing recipes everywhere that call for King's Hawaiian Rolls. … [Read more...]

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

I'm trying to watch the Next Food Network Star right now, but my dog keeps on whining. His friend is at the vet getting stitched up because he doesn't like getting a hair cut from Ben. Guess, we'll just have to go and get him a hair cut at one of the pet places from now on.  Anyways, I love Food Network Star. I'm really liking team Alton. He has a lot of unique people on his team. The one with the interesting hair cut I like so far, sorry I don't really know his name. I don't think I'd ever … [Read more...]

Chocolate Dipped Macaroons

coconut macaroons 015

Not really sure what to say about these cookies, except for they're very coconut-y. I've made macarons before but not macaroons. Macaroons are way easier to make than macarons. I always thought they were somehow made the same. Macarons take a lot of mixing and folding and with macaroons all you do is dump all the ingredients into a bowl and stir. The good thing about these cookies is, I can eat them all by myself. Why? Because my husband doesn't like coconut at all. He'll eat stuff with coconut … [Read more...]

No-Bake Energy Balls

cheesy tortilla soup 002

These little balls of energy have peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips, and coconut in them. There is no baking required. All it takes is a little effort to role the balls out and place them on a sheet pan. I had to use some water to help me roll the balls and a really small cookie scoop. I didn't have any coconut so I used some rice crispies instead and they turned out pretty good. I also subbed some agave nectar for the honey. Be careful though, they're very addicting. I think they'd be a … [Read more...]

Fish Taco Cups

fish taco cups 012

You know it wasn't going to be long before you saw someone make a fish taco cupcake. I don't like the term cupcake because it really isn't a cupcake. The taco isn't baked with anything like flour, eggs or salt, so I prefer to call them cups. This is a really fun appetizer and if you're still on the prowl to find something to make for the Super Bowl this weekend, you should give it a try. You can basically use your favorite fish taco recipe and just sub the shells with wonton wrappers. I prefer … [Read more...]
