Chewy No-Bake Granola Bars with Coconut Oil

coconut oil oatmeal bars 024

First off, I found some new goodies at Trader Joe's. Fig and Olive Oil Crisps - These are fantastic and great with some kind of spreadable cheese like Laughing Cow Cookies and Creme Cookie Butter Spread - If you like oreos and cookie butter, this is seriously good eats. Dark Chocolate Bars with Speculoos Cookie Butter  - Too die for! Guilt Free Mac and Cheese - I love their Mac and cheese frozen entrees, and knowing that this is guilt free makes it even better! I also got a ...

Tator Tot, Sausage and Egg Pie

tator tot sausage pie 003

Today was a good day. My recipe for Peppermint Eggnog Punch is on the Huffington Post. :) I decided to celebrate and picked up some brie cheese at the grocery store. Then, I got off from work and quickly made some bacon wrapped little smokies with brown sugar for treat day tomorrow. It's going to be a HUGE company wide pot luck and there is well over 400 people where I work at. I'm wearing my fat pants tomorrow. ;) j/k. Those are going on the blog tomorrow. This Tator Tot, Sausage and Egg ...

Weight Watcher’s Cinnamon Rolls

weight watcher's cinnamon rolls 034

Last night was very productive. Made a dough for cinnamon rolls and got my database that I created to successfully display on my server for my homework assignment. I'm working on a form that allows a user to submit info, and that gets stored into a database. A lot of that probably doesn't make sense to you, but you do it every day when you're online. Submitting your info to order pizza online. Pizza Hut receives that in order for you to get pizza delivered to your house. That is kind of almost ...

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 ...
