Red, White, and Blue Rosemary and Parmesan Potatoes

red white and blue potatoes 001

Need a last minute side dish for this weekend? Look no more! These red, white, and blue potatoes are perfect for a colorful and festive Summer side dish for the 4th of July.  My favorite color happens to be purple and potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables. My first instinct was to take the bag right away. Usually, when I'm shopping at a clothing store, I will only take things that say "Take me, Take me" in the back of my mind because I love it so much. I guess you could say the same rule ...

Skinny Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

skinny cheesecake bars 003

Have you guys noticed the price of eggs lately? I couldn't believe my eyes when I went to the grocery store and saw what the price was for a large container of eggs. Almost $5.00! It has to do with a group of chickens having to die off lately because they had some kind of disease. That is sad. It seems like a lot of different animals are dying off lately, like the honeybees for example. They're also having problems. I haven't had to buy a container of honey yet, but I'm sure that price will sky ...

Tropical Quinoa Fruit Salad

tropical quinoa fruit salad 024

This Tropical Quinoa Fruit Salad screams Summer and it's packed with kiwi, mango, pineapple, and toasted coconut. The dressing I chose for this salad is a honey lime dressing and I was debating on using poppy seed dressing. Poppy seed dressing is one of my favorites and goes on everything but this honey lime dressing is perfect. The dressing has 2 tablespoons of honey, the zest of 1 lime, and the juice of one lime. That it is. This tropical quinoa fruit salad will be on your dinner table in no ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
