Salmon Guacamole Sandwiches

avocado salmon sandwich 006

Happy St Patrick's Day! I'm not Irish, but I like participating in the Holiday and wearing green things and making green food. There's also a chance of Northern Lights tonight, and right now there's a geometric storm going on with a level of 4. That's the largest the level has been since 2003 and the sky is pretty clear right now. Which is the number one thing you have to look for when shooting the Northern Lights. :) If you're not familiar with figuring out how and when to shoot the Northern ...

Weight Watcher’s Frozen Grasshopper Pie

this pisses me off 2839

St Patrick's Day is only good for one thing and that is MINT. Mint and chocolate are meant to be together. At least I know that much is true. This is a no bake pie. It starts off with instant pistachio pudding. That sounds really weird for a mint dessert doesn't it? It works though, so trust me on this one. Next,  fold in some cool whip and mint extract and then poor it over a pie crust. Pop the pie in the freezer and wait for a couple hours for the pie to set. This pie takes no time to ...

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 ...
