Crock Pot Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

slow cooker terikayki pork 014

It's been kind of cold and rainy here in Fargo, ND and that is not good for taking pictures! I just want it to be bright outside because that is when the sun is shining through our big living room window the most! I've been doing a lot of research reading about food photography and studying food photos and all I've been wanting to do is take pictures of food lately.  I took the pic above on a bright sunny day and it turned out much better than some pictures of fruit I was trying to take ...

Weight Watchers Crock Pot Turkey Chili

chiliandcookies 019

  I have been watching what I eat lately, and counting my calories. So far, I've lost 5 pounds! It hasn't been easy too.  I was getting so frustrated with myself because of it,  I just had to force myself to do it. I'm using fatsecret.com to keep track of calories. What I like most about that site is that it figures out calories, protein, fat grams, and so on for recipes. It's kind of like another myfitnesspal.com and joining is free. I've also been expanding my chili horizon r ...

Weight Watchers Spaghetti Pie

spaghettipie1

Sorry I haven't posted lately. My fancy dslr camera has died. :( The memory card won't even insert into the camera and I've already sent that camera back to Nikon once and it was pretty expensive to get it fixed. I might be buying a new camera here pretty soon, so I'm stuck taking pictures with my fancy Nokia Lumia phone. I highly recommend these phones because the camera quality on them is AMAZING. I have the 920 which has 10 megapixels on it, but now the 1020 is coming out and has 40 ...

Breakfast Quinoa

breakfastquinoa 002

If you like having oatmeal for breakfast quinoa is kind of like that, but it's like a fancier upgrade to oatmeal. To cook quinoa all you do is boil it in some water or milk. Usually 1 cup of quinoa you use 2 cups of liquid and just boil the quinoa until it all the water evaporates. The organic quinoa was rather expensive at my store. 1 cup was 4.98 a pound. That is quite a lot, so maybe opt for the non-organic kind. I know Trader Joe's has bags of quinoa in their store, not exactly sure on the ...

Weight Watchers – Slow Cooked Jerk Pork with Caribbean Salsa

jerkpork 014

Man, I think this has been the tastiest thing I've ever made in the Slow Cooker for a long time! I got to use my jerk spice seasoning that I got when the husband and I went to Jamaica. The jerk seasoning I got, wasn't too hot though, I would have liked it on that side a little bit more. I tried it before serving the pork, and decided to throw in an extra tablespoon of the jerk seasoning. If you've never had jerk seasoning before it's a mixture of allspice, cinnamon, cloves, cumin, brown sugar, ...

Chicken and Dumpling Soup

soup

Yesterday was a good day. Made an excellent soup for dinner, found a black pair of boots for Winter, and got $20.00 in Kohl's cash. I ended up getting some items for Fall and Winter. Mustard color jeans, a purple sweater that came with a scarf, a Viera Wang scarf, and  a new top. I had some extra spending money so I went a little wild yesterday. In case most of you don't know.... I'm really into fashion now. I never used to be either. Kohl's is a good place to do that to find the newest fashion ...

Bourbon Chicken

bourban chicken 014

One of my favorite things to get at the Asian restaurants in the mall is Orange Chicken. The Bourban chicken is good too, it kind of reminds me of Orange chicken in away.  The bourban chicken in those places are always deep fried and twice the calories. This recipe has half the fat and calories in it and the whole recipe comes together in no time. There's no bourban in the recipe but other ingredients in the recipe make up for that. If you don't like it spicy just cut back on the red pepper ...
