Baked Bufffalo Chicken Taquitos

baked buffalo chicken taquitos 045

It's been quite awhile since I've made anything with buffalo chicken. A really long time! And... it's the weekend. Tomorrow, I am going to my FIRST Frozen themed birthday party and I must say, that I am pretty excited to go. I haven't even seen the movie yet, but just by surfing through Pinterest I know who the characters are. :) If you cook the chicken in a slow cooker all day long these buffalo chicken taquitos come together pretty fast. Other options are to have a chicken already cooked in ...

Kale and Quinoa Salad

kale and quinoa salad 008

Oh joy, another salad. You're probably getting sick of seeing salads on just about every food blog  right now aren't you? Tis the season to start diets. Words like Healthy and Detox and smoothies are popping up everywhere now. I told myself that I had to stop eating crap. I've been eating a lot of that lately too. Crap like Multi-grain tortilla chips with flax seed and guacamole. I keep on telling myself those chips are healthy, because they contain flax seeds in them. Pepperoni Pizza ...

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 ...

Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies

Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Little Smokies - Pork wrapped in even more Porky fat goodness. Mmmmm My heart just stopped pounding for a bit. The first time I ever had these, somebody had brought them for Treat Day. At my old job, we had that every Thursday at 930am. One person would take turns bringing snacks for the week and usually our treat day team, had the most elaborate gourmet snack food. Sure, there were some teams that brought sugary baked treats like donuts and cookies all the time, but ...

Weight Watcher’s Cinnamon Rolls

weight watcher's cinnamon rolls 034

Last night was very productive. Made a dough for cinnamon rolls and got my database that I created to successfully display on my server for my homework assignment. I'm working on a form that allows a user to submit info, and that gets stored into a database. A lot of that probably doesn't make sense to you, but you do it every day when you're online. Submitting your info to order pizza online. Pizza Hut receives that in order for you to get pizza delivered to your house. That is kind of almost ...

Kale, Pomegranate, Orange, and Kiwi Salad

pomegranatekale and kiwi salad 059

Pomegranates are in season and I wanted to make something with them. At the grocery stores they have the pomegranates that are already seeded for you, so you don't have to whack them out of there. I noticed them at the grocery store this week, but they are EXPENSIVE. It is much cheaper to buy your own pomegranate and get the seeds out yourself.  The first time I ever had a pomegranate was a disaster. Ben and I were trying exotic fruits at the grocery store, and we bought a pomegranate. We had no ...

Skinny Peppermint Fudge

skinny peppermint fudge 002

Skinny fudge you say? Is that even possible? Yes it is possible, because you can use fat free sweetened condensed milk and melt everything together in a microwave. This fudge comes together in no TIME!  Here's a good tip. Before you pour the chocolate into the pan, put some parchment on top of the plan, so you can easily lift the fudge out of the pan and cut it when it hardens. The hard part is letting it sit in the fridge, so it hardens up a bit. It's an easy recipe to use in your list ...
