Bacon and Cheeseburger Pizza

bacon cheeseburger pizza 016

This weekend was filled with Northern Lights, a red moon, and fireworks. 50+ some mosquito bites later, and it was all worth it though. Now, it's back to the work grind. On Sunday when I got home, I made a cheese burger pizza. It was the perfect way to use up the left over ground beef. It's your typical cheeseburger but transformed into a pizza. What are your favorite burger toppings? Mine was always pickles, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, and bacon.  Some people like raw onions on their ...

Skinny Creamy Mac and Cheese

creamy mac and cheese 018

This post is in preparation for an upcoming post sometime in the next day or two here.  Just wait until you see what I plan on doing with the leftovers tomorrow. :) This creamy mac and cheese is only 9 WWP+ per serving! Instead of making a roux with butter, the flour is added to milk and whisked until the flour is dissolved. Then the milk gets poured into the remaining milk mixture and it thickens! Who needs butter when making mac and cheese? Some panko bread crumbs get toasted on top of the ...

Skinny Taco Pizza with Corn, Avocado, and Tomatoes

skinny taco pizza with chive sauce 013

Can we talk about this pizza? This vegetarian pizza with refried beans, tomatoes, corn, avocado and scallions? I'm not even a vegetarian and I loved this pizza! I was debating on whether or not to put some black beans or olives on there for color. If you like black beans or olives by all means go for it. Pizza is awesome because anything goes. Have you ever had Baboli Pizza Crust? It's usually located by all the pizza ingredients. The whole wheat pizza crust is actually really good and I ...

Whole Wheat BLT Caprese Panini

I've been taking this new gym class on Tuesday and Thursday nights called Tabatas. Tabatas is an intense training class for 30 minutes where you do so many moves as you can in 20 seconds and you repeat that 7 times.  6 or  7 times, something like that. The killer for me is always burpees. Those things SUCK. The thing I love about that class is, is that I sweat every time. There's just something about sweating that gives me a high.   This Whole Wheat BLT Caprese Panini is actually fa ...

Browned Butter and Lime Salmon

brown butter and lime salmon 011

Have you ever filleted a salmon or fresh fish before? I like to fish every now and then, but it can be quite the disgusting task. Fishing licenses are kind of expensive here and it's not really worth it if you're only going to go about 3 or 4 times a year. I don't know what's worse about fishing. Putting the worm on the hook or gutting the fish when it's ready to be cooked? If you're wearing gloves it wouldn't be that bad. Meh..... I'd rather go to a fish monger and get it myself. Reasons why ...

Creamy Alfredo with Bacon and Peas

Bacon, peas, and pasta in a hot tub full of creamy bacon-y alfredo sauce. That's whats for dinner tonight folks. Drop your dinner plans today, go to the grocery store, and get all the ingredients to make this now. Or.... you could always just go tomorrow and get the ingredients. It's almost 7pm here, and by now I would assume most people would have eaten already. This is one of the most amazing alfredo sauces I've had in awhile. Why? Because the alfredo sauce is cooked in leftover bacon that ...

Cheese Curd Burger

This weekend went by so fast and can you believe next weekend is already Memorial Day weekend?!  Does anybody else find it weird, that Memorial Day is a week early this year? I'm so used to it being the last weekend in May. It's been so shitty cold and rainy here lately. Today, there was sleet. I kid you not. In the middle of May for crine out loud. It's only in the 30's and it better start warming up again. Since Memorial Day is this coming weekend, everybody will be getting out their grill and ...
