Simple Tomato Soup

simple tomato soup 015

Daylight Savings is tomorrow. That means it will be light out later on at nights now! Food bloggers LOVE that. Woohoo!   I was pretty floored by this tomato soup when I tried it. Got the recipe from Pinch of Yum's website. It literally BLEW my mind.  This soup starts off with sauteing some bacon and onions in a pot. The smell of bacon and onions cooking together is the best foodie smell EVER. Usually, I don't go back for seconds on soup, but with this soup I had too. Some kind of grilled c ...

Lighter Beijing Beef { Weight Watcher’s }

being beef and noodles 015

This may sound a bit crazy but  I've never had anything at Panda Express before up until about a month ago. They have been open up in the new strip mall here, and just right across from Panda Express is a brand spanking new Chipotle. It's been too busy to go in there yet. My town that I live in is known for chain restaurants, but up until now we had never had a Panda Express or Chipotle. Crazy right?! I believe we did used to have a Panda Express in the mall. Panda Express is so stinking ...

Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes

cheesy bacon ranch potatoes 018

Ok, so this probably isn't the HEALTHIEST side dish ever but at least I tried to portion control this. I used 2 medium red potatoes and between those two potatoes there's enough for three servings. 2 slices of bacon, heck even one slice would do, reduced fat colby cheese and fat free ranch dressing. YUM! You spray the potatoes with cooking spray to get them nice and crispy and bake them in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. They come out perfect every time! I have discovered that ...

Maple-Bacon Cornbread Muffins

maple bacon cornbread muffins 042

These muffins have been on my to make list since I bought this brunch magazine a couple of weeks ago. I remember on Christmas Day, we had the sweetest corn bread muffins with chili. They were the best cornbread muffins I've ever had and they were from Famous Daves. They were almost like corn bread cupcakes.  These maple-bacon cornbread muffins remind me of those cornbread muffins. Sweetened with maple syrup instead of refined sugar and with a little bit crispy bacon for some saltiness. The ...

Parmesan Couscous with Roasted Garlic and Pine Nuts

toasted pine nut couscous 011

It's already Sunday and it will be Monday before you know it. Boohoo. On Saturday morning, I was going to go and work out at the gym like I usually do. That changed, when my car had a thin sheet of ice on it, and it took me about 30 minutes to scrape off the ice on my car. By the time I was done scraping off the car, the class had already started.  That was a good upper arm workout. My Mom and I went shopping at Michael's and Home Goods on Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful day and it ...

Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash

sweet potato and sausage hash 023

Sweet Potato and Sausage Hash is  a good way to start off any weekend morning. The sweet potatoes get cooked in some boiling water.  The sausage and onion get cooked in a skillet and I learned something new today while cooking sausage. If you poor in a little bit of water, that helps to get the brown sticky bits off the bottom of the pan. The water will absorb in the skillet and your pan will be clean. The sausage and sweet potatoes give you that sweet and salty combo, and then you have that egg ...
