The little guy and I had some fun at breakfast with an old box sugar free pudding, a can of Mandarin oranges and an aging pomegranate we had in the fridge. Can you tell we need to hit the grocery store? ;~)
Regardless, I LOVED this. The flavor combo was tasty and they were so much fun to make together. However, even though the little guy loves pomegranates plain after awhile he got sick of them in the pudding. When I asked him what he wanted to call our little creation he said. . .

Let me start this post by saying, I didn’t even know what Tabouli (Tabbouleh) was about a year ago. I had some at a party last year and the cafeteria at my new job has it all the time. I believe it’s traditionally bulgur, parsley, mint, tomato, onion, lemon juice and olive oil. But unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) I don’t have all of that stuff. Heck, I don’t even have any fresh vegetables in the fridge except some carrots and an aging celery stalk. Read the rest of this post
I was wondering if you knew of any other good web sites besides yours that includes WWP with their recipes. I never really stray from your site, but I decided that I want to loose weight but I can’t afford to join Weight Watchers so I thought I would just go by a 28 point value system each day and see how that goes for me.
You totally need to stray! There are tons of resources out there! Here are just a few I know of. . . Read the rest of this post
I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL STRAWBERRY SEASON!
Sorry, I’m a little excited. I whipped up this chocolate dipping sauce as an experiment for my waffles this morning and it came out better then I expected. It will be awesome as a dip for strawberries. Here’s the story. . .
I finally got a chance to cook! The end of my week was a bit insane and we ate out more then I’d like to admit. Let’s just say I pulled these pork chops out for Wednesdays dinner. It’s Saturday.
Anyway, if you don’t know, Schnitzel is normally a veal cutlet pounded thin, breaded, fried in butter and served with lemon. I just took the idea and used pork for the veal, bran flakes for the breadcrumbs, and non-stick cooking spray for the butter. I also made a quick gravy and added a hint of lemon just to give the traditional recipe a nod. Read the rest of this post
This is the results of that pesky little “I just want something” voice in the back of my head. It’s simple but oh so tasty!
I love the combo of cinnamon, chocolate and strawberries. I also love that the soy milk provides all the sweetness. It makes it super simple!
Tonight I took my first stab at Pigs in a Blanket (that’s what we call stuffed cabbage up in North East Pennsylvania.) I’ve been wanting to make them since mom made a batch of hers a few months back. They are a perfect meal idea to jam pack full of healthy veggies.
Happy New Year’s Eve!
Yesterday the little guy and I had some fun sharing our tips on how to include frozen wild blueberries in your diet while making pancakes and blueberry muffins.
Western omelets have always been my favorite. The combination of onion, peppers and ham with egg dipped in ketchup is a little taste of breakfast heaven for this breakfast lover.
Remember waaay back when I said. . .
“Apparently all I had to do was shove a beer can up a chicken’s a$$ to get him excited about dinner!”
I may have been wrong. I’m not sure if it was the can of beer or the fact that I was serving him meat on a bone.
It’s Christmas Eve! YAY!
I actually made this up yesterday, snapped the most awesome shots of the little guy eating it and then accidently deleted them off the camera. :(
So I decided to make it again this morning. It came out even better when I discovered dipping graham crackers in it was a little taste of heaven. Like dessert chips-n-dip. I’m seriously thinking of putting it like that for a New Years party we’re having. Read the rest of this post
