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 … [Read more...]

Healthy Chicken Alfredo Pita Pizzas!

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 … [Read more...]

Weight Watchers Berry Pie

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 … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins


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 … [Read more...]

Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

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 … [Read more...]

Asian Marinated Pork Tenderloin

porktenderloin 014

This recipe originally calls for pork chops, but I prefer pork tenderloin instead and that's what I used.  I made the marinade for this recipe, and stuck the pork tenderloin and the marinade inside a freezer storage bag for a few hours. The flavor for the pork was an orange/spicy marinade and if you make the Peanut Noodle Salad that goes a long with this recipe it's a great meal. I found this recipe on Food Network, when I was watching Melissa D Arabian. Her recipes never seem to … [Read more...]

Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Fresh strawberries are in season right now and the ones I picked up at the grocery store this weekend were ginormous! I've been eying this strawberry cake that's been on pinterest lately. This cake is very moist and delicious even without the whole stick of butter it called for. If I ever make this cake again, which I probably will... I'd add a lot more strawberries than what the cake called for. This cake would be good even with rhubarb in it which I have plenty of that in my garden right now. … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

peanut butter and jelly bars 024

The first time making these peanut butter and jelly bars it didn't turn out so well. That's because I was experimenting with the dough. I thought I could mix together the flour with the butter and peanut butter and have it be a short bread type crust. That didn't turn out so well. Instead it was a big crumbly mess. The second time, I creamed the butter and the sugar together first. That worked a lot better. Hey, we all learn from our mistakes an sometimes, for some reason I like to mention … [Read more...]
