Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

sugarless peanutbutter cookies 013

About a month ago, I went to the doctor and had a visit. Found out my blood sugar levels are a bit high. Yikes! I then began to look at everything I was eating in the day. The first things I noticed were yogurt and soda. A 12 ounce can of cherry coke has 44 grams of sugar. My yogurt had 17. That is 61 g of sugar every day that I was eating.  Those two foods have been eliminated from my diet. I do however like to enjoy a can of Cherry soda maybe once or twice a week still. Another food ...

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 ...

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 ...

Oreo Fluff

Oreo Fluff

Watch out! Once you start eating this you won't be able to stop! It's really addicting especially if you love oreos. It takes no time to make at all. Take one box of instant jello pudding (white chocolate) and whisk in the amount of milk it calls for on the box. Fold in a whole container of cool whip and crushed oreos. I saved some oreos to decorate the top of the oreo fluff with to make it look nice. I see that Dairy Queen has Funfetti Cake batter in an waffle cone now. Pardon me while ...

Caramel Bacon Buns

I am so excited because this weekend the husband and I bought a smoker. We don't get it until sometime later this week, because we asked the hardware store where we got it from to put it together for us and there's a waiting list. That is ok though, because that will give me some time to defrost a pork butt I have in my freezer. I want to smoke so many things. The sales person who sold it to us said that he had smoked some macaroni and cheese and I never would have thought about making that in ...

MN State Fair & Apple Pie Crescents

fair 031

The Minnesota State Fair was really fun and I ate a ton of good food. I went with my brother, Mom and his girlfriend. You think that people only go to the State Fair for food. There were tons of different things to look at. A swine barn, horse barn, and chicken barn.Who would have thought there were so many different kinds of chicken?  I almost felt sad for the piggies in the Birthing Barn. They were cooped up in this glass container with hardly any room to walk around. Maybe they were there for ...
