Parmesan Couscous with Roasted Garlic and Pine Nuts

toasted pine nut couscous 011

It's already Sunday and it will be Monday before you know it. Boohoo. On Saturday morning, I was going to go and work out at the gym like I usually do. That changed, when my car had a thin sheet of ice on it, and it took me about 30 minutes to scrape off the ice on my car. By the time I was done scraping off the car, the class had already started.  That was a good upper arm workout. My Mom and I went shopping at Michael's and Home Goods on Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful day and it ...

Baked Bufffalo Chicken Taquitos

baked buffalo chicken taquitos 045

It's been quite awhile since I've made anything with buffalo chicken. A really long time! And... it's the weekend. Tomorrow, I am going to my FIRST Frozen themed birthday party and I must say, that I am pretty excited to go. I haven't even seen the movie yet, but just by surfing through Pinterest I know who the characters are. :) If you cook the chicken in a slow cooker all day long these buffalo chicken taquitos come together pretty fast. Other options are to have a chicken already cooked in ...

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 ...

Skinny Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

skinny sugar cookies2 003

  You can bring these cookies to a a Holiday party and not let anyone know they were Weight Watcher Cookies. Believe me, no one will know the difference! They tasted like the sugar cookies my Grandma would always make but with less butter. Butter is my favorite baking ingredient to work with and when I bake, I don't want to leave that out! The blue frosting color I made, almost reminded me of the Disney Movie Frozen. Make them for that too. Theyre supposed to be snowflakes. Parden my ...

Baked Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar and Butter

roasted acorn squash 005

Baked Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar and Butter is my favorite way to have squash. The squash gets baked in an oven until it's fork tender, and a brown sugar maple butter gets smeared all over the squash.  Then you bake the squash in the oven for about an hour at 400 degrees. When you take the squash out of the oven, you'll notice a glorious pool of butter, maple syrup, and brown sugar just waiting to be scooped up an eaten with your choice of kitchen utensil. Your house will smell amazing and ...

Weight Watcher’s Blueberry Scones

weight watcher blueberry scones 029

I was trying to think of ways I could get more people to come to my website this weekend. Then, I realized that there's hardly any breakfast recipes on this site and in the morning I rarely get a lot of traffic. Most of my site traffic comes at night when everyone is home and that makes sense. What type of recipes do people search for in the mornings? Probably breakfast ones, so I"ll be adding more breakfast recipes on this site. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  Also thought about ...

Honey Roasted Peaches

Honey Roasted Peaches 053

This shot took two different tries. The first time I tried to photograph these peaches, I tried using whipped cream on top of the peaches and that just ended up melting all over the peaches. Not a pretty picture. This would not look very appealing in front of a Chopped judge either.     I thought of what else I could use that would hold it's shape better and I knew I had some cream cheese in the fridge.  The second time I had to take this shot pretty fast before the cream cheese me ...
