Skinny No-Churn Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Salted Carmel Sauce 028

I was pretty much floored by this version of no churn ice cream. I've tried many different recipes for no churn ice cream and most of them involved using heaving whipping cream and beating it until the cream gets stiff peaks. Who has time for that? I couldn't believe how close this was to the texture and taste of real ice cream. I was trying to think of ways to make no-churn ice cream a bit on the skinnier side so you feel less guilty eating it, and thought of using cool whip.  Cool whip is what ...

2 Ingredient Banana Ice Cream

2 ingredient banana ice cream 001

Do you know who likes bananas? Minions like bananas. BA-NAN-AS! Ok, sorry I had to get that out of my system. This is a great after school snack for when your little minions go back to school. It's super quick and easy too. Just freeze the bananas in a freezer bag. Before you want to make the ice cream, set a timer and let the bananas defrost for awhile. I set mine for 20 minutes. Use a blender or food processor to puree the bananas and cocoa powder. The consistency will become smooth like ...

Weight Watcher’s Buffalo Chicken Pizza

weight watcher's buffalo chicken pizza 001

I've had a Buffalo style chicken pizza on this blog before, but it wasn't really Weight Watcher friendly. When using a Boboli Whole Wheat Pizza crust, you can have buffalo chicken pizza at home for only 5 points a slice! Maybe make sure to have a light lunch that day, cause you're going to want to have at least 3 slices of this pizza when you get home from work. Speaking of work, the pizza is even better the next day for leftovers. If you like your pizza REALLY hot, you can use the extra hot ...

Bacon and Cheeseburger Pizza

bacon cheeseburger pizza 016

This weekend was filled with Northern Lights, a red moon, and fireworks. 50+ some mosquito bites later, and it was all worth it though. Now, it's back to the work grind. On Sunday when I got home, I made a cheese burger pizza. It was the perfect way to use up the left over ground beef. It's your typical cheeseburger but transformed into a pizza. What are your favorite burger toppings? Mine was always pickles, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, and bacon.  Some people like raw onions on their ...

Weight Watcher’s Caprese Pasta Salad

weight watcher's caprese pasta salad 016

I've been noticing a trend in the type of recipes you guys like lately, and what I've found was, that you guys mostly like pasta and casserole recipes. I've done Caprese pasta salads before on this blog, but not a Weight Watcher version. There's not a lot of difference between a lightened up version of this dish, and a regular version. It's just your typical tomato, basil, and mozzarella. Use a whole grain penne pasta. Barilla has one with 19 grams of protein. Just make sure to watch your ...

Weight Watcher’s Sex in a Pan

sex in a pan attempt 005

    Have you ever heard of this crazy dessert called Sex in a Pan before? It has 5 different layers. The first layer is a crust layer that has nuts, flour, and butter. You're typical cookie crust. The second layer is cream cheese, sugar, and whipped topping. The third and fourth layer is vanilla pudding and chocolate pudding. Use instant, no reason to go all out and make your own pudding here. The final layer is cool or whipping cream. Now, does that not want to make you go and hop into a p ...

Overnight Blueberry Coffee Cake

I am a sucker for buying magazines at the grocery store when I'm waiting in line to check out. My favorite food magazines are Better Homes and Garden and Food Network's magazine. I'll see a recipe in the magazine that I just have to try, and this is one of them. Overnight Blueberry Coffee Cake. One of the things I love about Better Homes and Garden is that they include the nutrition info in their recipes. That's perfect for people who are watching their weight and counting points. Have ...

Whole Wheat BLT Caprese Panini

blt caprese sandwich 010

I've been taking this new gym class on Tuesday and Thursday nights called Tabatas. Tabatas is an intense training class for 30 minutes where you do so many moves as you can in 20 seconds and you repeat that 7 times.  6 or  7 times, something like that. The killer for me is always burpees. Those things SUCK. The thing I love about that class is, is that I sweat every time. There's just something about sweating that gives me a high.   This Whole Wheat BLT Caprese Panini is actually fa ...
