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 ...

I was at the lake cabin this weekend and found this wonderful Poppy Seed dressing in one of the fridges called Brianna's Homestyle Poppyseed Dressing. WOWSAS!

All Natural Ingredients like the bottle says. Just vinegar, olive oil, poppy seeds, etc. No added extra junk like fillers. That is pretty ...

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip 015

Make sure you have the recipe with you if you ever bring this dip to a party, because people will be asking for it left and right. I've brought this to a pot luck at work and I had many people asking for the recipe. Although that dip was made in the slow cooker and it wasn't a skinny version. This dip is for people watching their waste line or maybe just trying to eat a little healthier. I had a lot of shredded rotisserie chicken leftover from the day before. I just love buying those ...
