I was craving something sweet tonight – and with not much in the way of bad for me stuff in the house – I put on my thinking cap and came up with a Cherry Almond Crumble. Maddie and I had a cherry crisp at a local restaurant this summer that was to die for […]
I rework a lot of the recipes on the WeightWatchers.com website because I’m pretty convinced they’re written but never made. These recipes are reworked to increase portion size, increase or adjust flavor, and help ease the burden of obtaining weird products. I also try to cut back on the processed foods they sometimes call for.
If you have a recipe you want reworked into a WeightWatchers-Friendly gem, let me know!
Chicken & Bean Enchilada Stuffed Shells – 7 SP WeightWatchers

Honey Sweetened Cinnamon Scones
These are amazing – and fast to whip up. I found the recipe at MoneySavingMom.com – and made it almost verbatim, but I did it ALL in the Food Processor – which makes this amazingly easy. The dough itself is only sweetened with Honey – but they are topped with cinnamon sugar and a powdered sugar […]
Vegetable Minestrone Soup
My cooking crush, Ina Garten, made minestrone on her show the other day and it really looked great – so I decided to give it a try – only using things I can get year round, because in the winter, our vegetables in Western CO are questionable, at best. This turned out great and Maddie […]
