Knock You Naked Brownies

knock you naked brownies 002

Valentine's Day is coming up. This year, I'll be spending Valentine's Day alone because my husband is traveling to Slovakia for work. Lucky him! I'd tag a long with, but I don't want to spend all day by myself while he's doing work stuff. No thanks. It will be just the dogs and I. We'll probably celebrate a couple days before that, and what better way to celebrate is by making your sweet heart some kind of sweet decadent dessert for Valentine's Day? If the title of these brownies bother ...

Peppermint Puppy Chow

peppermint puppy chow 013

I weighed in today and lost another 2 pounds! How the heck did that happen?! For lunch yesterday, I had prime rib and scalloped potatoes. Not to mention cheesecake for dessert?  One thing I like about Weight Watcher's is learning how to portion. A lot of the meats you can weigh with a scale and find out how many ounces are in a serving.  Salmon is great too, because 4 or 3 ounces is only 4 points, and then we'll have green beans on the side. I'm pretty happy with that too, and I'm only 1 pound a ...

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! The whole container is ...

Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

sugarless peanutbutter cookies 013

About a month ago, I went to the doctor and had a visit. Found out my blood sugar levels are a bit high. Yikes! I then began to look at everything I was eating in the day. The first things I noticed were yogurt and soda. A 12 ounce can of cherry coke has 44 grams of sugar. My yogurt had 17. That is 61 g of sugar every day that I was eating.  Those two foods have been eliminated from my diet. I do however like to enjoy a can of Cherry soda maybe once or twice a week still. Another food ...

Peppermint Icecream Sandwich Cookies

I finally have a photography schedule for the Winter here. North Dakota Winters are not any fun. If you haven't been here before, it's usually below - 0 from Winter to March with wind chills of -30 sometimes! BRRRRR!!! You're probably wonder why I'm putting ice cream inside of cookies?  This sandwich cookie would be great for those of you that live where it's semi warm out around the Holidays. Lately, it's been in the 30's with days where there's hardly any sunshine out. I now make my food at ...

Skinny Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

  You can bring these cookies to a a Holiday party and not let anyone know they were Weight Watcher Cookies. Believe me, no one will know the difference! They tasted like the sugar cookies my Grandma would always make but with less butter. Butter is my favorite baking ingredient to work with and when I bake, I don't want to leave that out! The blue frosting color I made, almost reminded me of the Disney Movie Frozen. Make them for that too. Theyre supposed to be snowflakes. Parden my ...

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Yesterday, was baking day. Made some Chocolate Peppermint Cookies, Pumpkin Cupcakes, and caramels. I'm STILL in a baking mood after all that. The caramels still need to be dipped in chocolate and they were made for a picture re-take from last year. It's my favorite caramel recipe. We went shopping at Sam's Club tonight and boy did I ever do something stupid. The guy at the check out said our card was expired. No it wasn't, my Mom and I got a shared membership there this summer, how can it ...

Peppermint Oreo Icebox Cake

Remember the Oreo Icebox Cake that I made? I took that same concept and made a Peppermint Oreo version. Have you tried the peppermint Oreos yet? Mmm think those are my favorite oreos ever. I've been looking for the candy cane ones and can only seem to fine minis. Then Trader Joe's has the Candy Cane Joe Joe's, those are fantastic and would be great in this. This time, instead of putting the oreos and cool whip into an 8x8 pan, I used a bread loaf pan so that it would look taller and a little ...
