Ultimate Blueberry Muffins

Birthday Weekend 064

I made a second batch of these without the brown sugar topping on them, and liked them better. It has been a long Birthday Weekend and I'm glad to finally be home. Birthday Weekend is when everyone goes up to the cabin to celebrate 4 birthday's that happen all in one week in my husbands family. There were about 13 people there and 5 dogs. And if you're wondering how 13 people can fit into one cabin, they can't, cause there's actually 2 cabins. We had sloppy joes, corn on the cob, watermelon, ...

Chicken Tortilla Rollups

Chicken Tortilla Rollups 010

I've been reading romance novels on my ipad lately. Don't look at me that way, they were free. I just love it how this one couple in my book met. Over bacon sandwiches with a can of coke. This girl stumbled into this guys apartment whom she thought was her friends apartment but it wasn't. The number was upside down.  She ended up having lunch there with some strange man she'd never met before. The guy was cooking bacon on his stove top and just put the bacon between two pieces of buttered ...

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 ...
