Nectarine Galette

Necatarine Gellate 005

I heard some good news this week people! My BLT Pasta Salad recipe is a top recipe this week on Ziplist. Pretty awesome. That, and one of my other recipes is going to be published in the news. How freaking awesome is that? I will keep you guys updated on that other one. This is my first time making a galette and I can't believe how EASY it was. Seriously easy, if you use a store bought pie crust. You can pick whatever fruit you like, I had nectarines in my fridge. I've been noticing a lot of ...

Orange Balsamic Chicken Kabobs

Orange Basalmic Glazed Chicken Kabobs 018

Grilling season is almost done with. *Sigh   Although we grill here when it's -25 degrees outside. How bout you? ;)   I was browsing my pinterest boards and saw this recipe for orange basalmic glazed chicken, and then I thought it would be really fun to make chicken kabobs. It's fun to put food on a stick. Food is better on a stick. Kabobs take no time to make on the grill. For chicken all it takes is 4 flips, with 2 two minutes per side. The chicken comes out really moist.  So, I used ...

Baked Chicken Parmesan

chicken parmesan 008

Baked Chicken Parmesan is a lighter version of the classic. I skip out on the noodles to avoid all those extra carbs and not use a ton of marinara sauce on top. Instead of frying the chicken you bake it in the oven.  Have a side of steamed broccoli or green beans as a side. I am a fan of any type of  breaded chicken for dinner now. Now that I know how to get the bread crumbs to stick. I've tried other recipes before and the bread crumbs just wouldn't stick to the chicken. It also helps to use ...

Today, I'm posting 2 recipes just for the heck of it, because this recipe was sooooooooooooooooooo delicious. I couldn't wait until tomorrow to post it!

The only Spaghetti Sauce!

meatsauce 007

This recipe is hands down my favorite Spaghetti meat sauce. My Mom used to make this for my brother and I all the time when we were kids and we just loved it. I remember the house smelling really good too and I knew it was spaghetti night. I finally asked her for the recipe awhile back and now I make it for Ben. He loves it too! I'm sure it will be a new favorite in your house too. This makes a lot and is good for leftovers the rest of the week. Otherwise, you can always freeze the spaghetti ...

Grilled Mexican Chicken Breasts – Weight Watchers

Weight Watcher Recipes

  Have you ever tried the Weight Watcher recipe for Crock Pot Salsa chicken where you just throw in some frozen chicken breasts and a jar a salsa with a taco seasoning and call it a day? This is the same concept with a twist.  It's seasoned grilled chicken with taco seasoning and to make it pretty just spoon a couple tablespoons of a jarred salsa and some light sour cream on top. I used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. You can top it with cheese if you'd like but why? This is ...

pitapizza 025

Happy first day of March! Yesterday I got my first  Nature Box with 6 different snacks. Cherry Berry Bonanza, Granny Smith Apples, Dried Peaches, Cheddar Sour Dough Pretzels , Cocoa Almonds, and Cocoa Berry Granola. I can't stop eating them! Especially the dried berries. I love the dried peaches and apples because the only list of ingredients on the back is peaches and apples. That's right, no sweeteners of any kind. I will definitely be ordering some again and I want to try everything on their ...

Weight Watchers Berry Pie

berrypie 046

This pie was featured on the Weight Watcher's homepage this week in their recipe section. I am not a member of Weight Watchers anymore, but I still like to check out their recipes every now and then. I'm glad I did this week, because this pie was delicious. The recipe on their website called for strawberries, but I used blueberries and raspberries since they were on sale. This pie comes out to be 5 points plus a piece if using a reduced fat graham cracker pie crust. I just liked the pie filling ...
