Potluck gatherings are often filled with scrumptious, yet entirely fattening, foods. Next time you are looking to bring some healthier fare, try out one of these dishes from Better Homes & Garden. Heart-healty cheesy potatoes? Lemon veggie couscous? Yes, please. Paula Deen and butter go hand-in-hand. Apparently, so does selling out. Who are some of […]

I think part of setting goals for the new year involves looking back and finding what worked for you and what didn’t in the past year. Sometimes it’s hard. In looking back, I realized that parts of my last year were spent tearing myself down. I had days where I couldn’t find anything about myself […]

When I first heard Paula Deen had been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes…well, I’m not going to lie. I wasn’t surprised. At all. Come on, now. But I was sad. You guys, I really LIKE Paula Deen. I’ve always watched her shows, and drooled, and wished I could eat what she’s preparing. But I know […]

I’m a huge fan of seafood, especially shrimp.  It’s one of my favorite types of seafood to cook at home because it’s quick, easy, and is a great fit with my Weight Watchers food plan. I recently came across this recipe for Dijon Shrimp.  Unfortunately, I don’t remember exactly where I found it, but it’s […]
