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! I was going to make a crock pot version of this same dish, but decided on the Weight Watcher recipe that I found because it didn't take forever to cook. This meal comes together in less than 20 minutes. We really liked it. It's different from what we normally have and the sauce is just delicious. Please use either beef broth or beef consumme ...

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 ...

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 ...

Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins

quinoa

I started off my week vacation making these quinoa muffins and I have much more exciting things to make this week including homemade bacon. This is what Quinoa looks like up close. Almost looks like couscous doesn't it? You shouldn't be afraid of it. It just takes a little time to boil in the water. 10-15 minutes. I used a base recipe from Martha Stewart and just decided to add in chocolate chips. They look like muffins and taste like muffins but these muffins have quinoa in ...

Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

strawberryoatbars 016

Yesterday, I was cooking up a storm in my kitchen. I made some potato soup, homemade soft pretzels with ranch seasoning, and these oatmeal square bars. I think this was my favorite recipe that I made all day. Have you ever had jars of jelly or jam in your fridge just sitting there waiting to get used up? For some reason, I end up with 4 or 5 different flavored jams in my fridge. I go kind of crazy whenever I find some Stone Wall kitchen jams that I haven't tried yet. I've got a little jar of ...
