Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes

funetti cupcakes 1052

  In honor of losing 4 pounds on my first week of Weight Watchers, I made Skinny Funfetti Cupcakes. A 4 pound loss calls for a celebration! For the longest time, I couldn't lose any weight at all and I was stuck. STUCK, I tell you. That is when I decided to rejoin Weight Watcher's again to help me lose that weight. When making cupcakes on a diet, Weight Watcher's is famous for adding a can of diet soda to just a regular box mix. I'm not a fan of diet soda cause of the ...

Bacon and Cheddar Baked Potatoes

bacon and cheddar baked potatoes 016

These baked potatoes are topped with bacon, cheddar, green onions, and sour cream and can even be made Weight Watcher friendly. Can you believe it's Nov 1st already? On Halloween, the high was 39 degrees and the night before that was a low of 20. Brrrrr!!! Winter has definitively hit here. I went to the grocery store this morning to find my frozen hash browns and the Halloween candy had already been replaced with Christmas candy. That is sad! I did spy some limited edition Peppermint Oreos ...

Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes

slow cooker creamy mashed potatoes 035

      You will not miss the fat in these garlic mashed potatoes, I swear! The potatoes cook on low for 6 to 7 hours and by the time the potatoes are done they are so tender.  The touch of a fork made them fall apart instantly. The original recipe called for parmesan cheese and sour cream and since my husband is lactose intolerant, I made these potatoes dairy free. I really REALLY wanted to put the dairy in them, but once you mashed them with a potato masher, or used some beaters to m ...

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 ...

Weight Watcher’s Apple Crisp

weight watcher's apple crisp 016

This apple crisp is a lightened up version of the classic.  Apple Crisp has always been my favorite Fall treat to look forward to. I remember the very first apple crisp recipe I ever made and that had over a stick of butter in it. Yikes! This recipe still has all the basic apple crisp ingredients but only 3 tablespoons of butter. There now, isn't that better than 1 stick of butter? I still think there needs to be some kind of fat, because I don't know what else you use instead of the butter? I ...

Slow Cooker Chili Queso Dip

slow cooker chili queso dip 005

My friend asked me if I wanted to come over for a fire pit this weekend and I said sure, can I bring some queso dip? I've been craving it a lot lately.  Queso dip is normally for crowds, and if I sat there and ate the whole entire crock pot full of it, that would be bad. Very bad.  By the end of the night the queso dip had disappeared and that made me happy. Yesterday, it looked like the weather was going to be terrible for a fire pit. It had rained in the afternoon. The skies cleared up and t ...
