Spicy Huevos Rancheros

huevos rancheros 012

This was a nice change, rather than my usual hash brown, eggs, and bacon stacks. A crisp corn tortilla, sprayed and baked in the oven instead of frying. Black beans with cumin, and chili powder and then the whole shebang is topped off with a fried egg. Super yummy with some tomato, avocado, and cilantro on top. Ben didn't have the egg with it. Instead, he made tacos with beans, tomatoes and avocado. Men, I tell you. He didn't want to make another fried egg cause the other one was contaminated ...

Raisin Bran Muffins

raisin bran muffins 038

These raisin bran muffins are to die for and guess what?! They're Weight Watcher friendly too! Score! I couldn't believe these were made with whole wheat flour and I'm so used to making muffins with regular white flour. I've tried muffins made with whole wheat flour before, and they were kind of dry. Not these! They were super moist. That is the key to using whole wheat flour. Make sure the batter is really moist and these even have butter in them. Since, I didn't have any whole bran, I just ...

Bacon, Egg, and Hash Brown Stacks

camera testing 067

Since starting Weight Watcher's, I've been making these Bacon, Egg, and Hash Brown Stacks religiously.  The frozen hash browns are only 2 points if you cook them in a skillet with some non-stick cooking spray. Only 2 points! Ore-Ida makes them and if you can find them they're worth it. They're fast, easy, and really filling for only 4 points. The eggs give you some protein. Sometimes, I'll make 2 of these if I have the points left over. You can't go wrong with breakfast for dinner. If you ...

Sausage and Apple Hash

sausage and apple hash 020

Well guys, you want to know what is sad? I have Weight Watcher recipes on my site and I can't even lose weight. I've been tracking my daily calorie intake  for 17 days straight using myfitnesspal and that is not working. All I've managed to lose is a pound.  I needed something to hold me more accountable so I joined up with Weight Watcher's again. Yep, it's time. This is going to be my last bad recipe post for a long time. That is kind of the reason why I haven't been posting many new recipes l ...

Bacon, Egg, and Gruyère Breakfast Sandwich

breakfast sandwich 018

This week has been lasting FOREVER. Does anyone else feel that way?  The time feels like it has just stopped on some days, and the only way to make it through the day is buy buying some Halloween candy at the grocery store. Yep, already have bought my first bag and I couldn't help myself. The store likes to do this sneaky thing where they have this display of fruits right by the deli check out and right next to the fruit is bags of Halloween candy. Yikes. I'll probably end up going through a ...

Chorizo and Potato Breakfast Tacos

chorizo and potato breakfast tacos 015

This chorizo and potato breakfast taco is loaded with eggs, potatoes, onions, chorizo sausage, and cheese. The perfect filling breakfast. I found this recipe in our local news paper in an article titled Everyday Gourmet: Tailgating treats highlight of foot ball season. If this is what kind of food fans of football make, then I really need to get on that bandwagon. I'll show up in my football gear and just make my way through all the tailgating fans, sample their food, and then leave. No one ...

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, ...

Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes

Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes 015

We had breakfast for dinner last night. Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes and Maple Sausage. Ben and I both really liked these pancakes. Ben liked them because they didn't have any dairy in it. He's lactose intolerant but will eventually every now and then enjoy some ice cream and  pizza. I liked these because the cinnamon and applesauce reminded me of Fall. Then I wanted to start baking last night. I was thinking of pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, everything with pumpkin. That season can not get ...
