Weight Watcher’s “Unfried” Chicken

weight watchers chicken strips 011

This recipe took me a couple tries to get right. The first time was a disaster. The chicken turned out really dry and the recipe didn't say what to do with the cornflakes  so I just crushed them in a bag until they were done. It also called for mayo to coat the chicken. The second time I tried making this I changed a few things. I still used cornflakes as the bread crumbs and made sure to pulverize them in the food processor. Completely pulverize them. You don't want chunks of cornflakes ...

Berry Quinoa Muffins

quinoamuffins 017

I made these Quinoa muffins for breakfast this week. I've been getting pretty sick of having greek yogurt in the morning for breakfast and have been wanting something different. Something baked and healthy like these quinoa muffins. They're filling and low in sodium which I've been trying to watch lately. I've been counting my calories and have noticed I've been eating way too much sodium lately. It sucks cause salt is in everything. ..... Next time you make muffins, try adding some cooked ...

Baked Eggs in Avocado

eggandavocado 003

This may sound kind of gross to people, who have never had a warm avocado. I first tried warm avocados when I made some kind of roll-ups and it was good. Do not let the size of the avocado seed fool you. It is not big enough to fit the egg in there. You have to scoop out some of the avocado in order for it to fit. I ended up having an egg white mess all over my tin-foil. A good thing I made these over tin foil right? Easy clean up. This is with almost half of the egg whites gone. Don't ...

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas

porkcarnitas 002

I don't know what happened to my one plug-in for all my recipes. I have Get Me Cooking and it's a plug-in that keeps track of all your recipes and you can format it to put them in a fancy box like I have been doing for quite awhile now. I'm guessing that it won't let me do that any more because it's at the number of recipes it can hold. If that's the case then I am bummed. Until then, I'll just be posting recipes without it, until I can figure out what is going on. I am going to come out and ...

Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cupcakes

cupcakes 017

Did you know when you cream bananas and sugar together it almost looks exactly like it would when you cream butter and sugar together? Not to mention, it's a lot healthier too! I want to try this method out on cookies, and I plan on making a batch this weekend using bananas and sugar. I love it when I can find a healthy recipe for baking that doesn't make something taste like crap. I had these cupcakes for breakfast this week.  There is protein in the peanut butter, bananas, and some greek ...

Crock Pot Creamy Italian Chicken – Weight Watchers

italianchicken 005

  Well, It's been almost 2 1/2 weeks since I've had a cold. I can't seem to get rid of this cough either. I'm hoping by next week it's gone. The flu season is really nasty this year and it seems like everyone I know is getting sick. I've been eating a lot of soup lately  because of that. This weekend I made a big pot of potato soup and I'm so sad it is gone. It was so good. I might make another pot of it this weekend. We shall see. This dish was super easy and delicious! I served ...

Salmon with Pineapple and Salsa

salmon 002

Sometimes, I wish I could just post a recipe and not have to say anything about it. Sometimes, I wonder if people even read whatever it is I'm writing about and just look at the picture and recipe and that's it? I know I'm guilty of that with other blogs. I'll just look at all the yummy pictures and pin it to read it later. I was trying to think of something to say about this salmon recipe. It felt like I was back on a tropical island again with the pineapple salsa. I served mine with some ...

Candy Bar Apple Salad

candyapplesalad 011

I was contemplating on whether or not I should post this recipe. At first, I didn't like it and thought it was just so, so. I think my problem when I first tried it was, that I tasted it when it was at room temperature. I tried some more of it today and liked it a lot  better, because it had been sitting in the fridge. Also, I cut the snickers bars kind of too big and would have preferred them to be a bit smaller. This "salad" tastes like a caramel apple dipped in nuts. It almost reminds me of ...
