I was rifling through my old recipes trying to find something light and spring-y -and this is as fresh and green as it gets. This is from my personal blog archives, originally published last summer.

  I love Mexican food and I love enchiladas.  However, I don’t eat enchiladas very often because OMG, that fat and the cheese and the FAT. Until now.   For a brief while, I had a free membership to Cook’s Illustrated.  During that time, I printed out as many recipes as I had time to.  […]

I have just recently started eating shrimp.  I’ve never been a fan of shellfish, fish, crustaceans, or any other word for things that inhabit water.  But, I’m learning, because it really is a low-fat healthy way to get some good protein in you. I found this recipe in the January 2009 issue of Fitness Magazine. […]

Did you know that in addition to February being Heart Health Month, it’s also National Chocolate Month? When Hershey’s contacted us about doing a review for their Hershey®’s Dark products, I actually paused before I shouted YES, and then I decided to take one for the team. You’re welcome. Are you familiar with Bob Greene and his […]

I’m no cook. I try, but really I’m more of a Preparer. Or a Combiner. Yeah. Combiner. That’s what I am. I like to find recipes with the fewest number of ingredients so that I have less of a chance to mess it up. Which is why this is one of my favorite recipes to […]

Your breakfast will be delicious tomorrow (or later today), I promise. You just have to make these muffins. This recipe is a staple in my home and my children love it.

I don’t know about you, but cornbread dressing is THE reason I look forward to Thanksgiving. Okay, so I really look forward to ALL the food. Seriously. I grew up in a family where traditions are strong, especially traditional holiday meals. My grandma always, always made homemade cornbread dressing, and I was by her side […]

I first made this recipe during the summer. It is an adaptation of an Ellie Krieger recipe from her show on Food Network, Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger. The biggest draw for me? One pot. Easy clean-up. That is a great thing. There was one problem with the original recipe, for me at least. I’m […]

This is sort of a re-post.  I posted it at first over on my personal blog.  It had been so long since I had made it, that I thought today was the perfect day to make it, take pictures, and post it here for you guys!  So, I hope you enjoy!  It’s one of my […]

The weather (here, at least) feels like autum. That means – SOUP! This one is a favorite around our house. I’ve modified the original recipe from the Zolo Grill slightly to make it more points friendly. At eight, it’s not super light, but it’s filling. The cheese and sour cream do add to the points, […]

This recipe doesn’t need much explaining!  It was ridiculously simple and easy and my children LOVED it, including the baby.  This one will become a staple in our house, that’s for sure.  I made absolutely ZERO modifications because um, I didn’t need to. Crock Pot Chicken Stroganoff (I found this on a Weight Watchers Community […]
