Weight Watcher’s Spaghetti Carbonara

spaghetti carbonara 021

I've been eating a lot of eggs lately with an English muffin. I was getting kind of bored of that, so I changed it up a bit. I can't get enough of English muffins with the nooks and crannies and then a little melted butter on that. Yummmmmm.....   Sometimes, I'll add some bacon on top and cheese to make a breakfast sandwich. Spaghetti Carbonara is almost like a deconstructed version of that sandwich. The noodles are the English muffins that the cheese and egg sticks too, and then the bacon. If … [Read more...]

Browned Butter Shrimp Scampi 022

  It's been a busy week. I've been working on my homework for my PHP class every night. There's three chapters for this homework assignment and all of the assignments take about 4 hours to do from each chapter. Its a lot of coding, but I've been learning a lot! On Wednesday night, was our anniversary dinner(been married for 3 years now). We went to Cork and Clever. It's this fancy pants restaurant in Fargo. Ben had steak and I had shrimp scampi.  Our meals came with 2 sides. I got a baked p … [Read more...]

Pasta with Pecorino and Pepper – Ina Garten

Pasta with Pecorino and Pepper 039

This dish looks like Christmas to me! It must be the red tomatoes, parsley, and green plate from Pier 1 that I just purchased recently. This wasn't on purpose either. I really wanted to use that plate in a new pic.  If you haven't noticed recently, there's been a lot of blue napkins and dishes in my pictures, which needed to change. Not that my friend  Heidi wouldn't mind seeing that all the time. ;) Speaking of Christmas. Does anyone else get annoyed how some of the stores put out Christmas d … [Read more...]

Taco Shells and Cheese

I couldn't decide what I wanted for dinner tonight. I have been wanting to try that new pretzel crust pizza from Little Ceasars. Have you tried that yet? The crust is made out of pretzel dough, and then there is a layer of cheese sauce spread on the bottom of the pizza. Pretzels are my favorite mall food to get at the store, and now we can have them for dinner! Awesome. That is a pretty big dinner to eat for just one person, and since my husband can't eat dairy at all, it would be just myself … [Read more...]

One Pot Enchilada Pasta

One Pot Enchilada Pasta 012

I wasn't planning on posting this recipe, originally. I made this about 2 weeks ago and the pictures had been sitting on my computer waiting for them to be used. One pot recipes seem to be all the jibber jabber these days, and I can see why! I love one pot meals. It's like making hamburger helper! You can pick and choose the type of meat and sauces to change them up.  Make it Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, Chinese, etc. Use different types of grains, noodles, and rice. The sky is the limit. … [Read more...]

Orange Balsamic Chicken Kabobs

Orange Basalmic Glazed Chicken Kabobs 018

Grilling season is almost done with. *Sigh   Although we grill here when it's -25 degrees outside. How bout you? ;)   I was browsing my pinterest boards and saw this recipe for orange basalmic glazed chicken, and then I thought it would be really fun to make chicken kabobs. It's fun to put food on a stick. Food is better on a stick. Kabobs take no time to make on the grill. For chicken all it takes is 4 flips, with 2 two minutes per side. The chicken comes out really moist.  So, I used … [Read more...]
