Angel Food Cake with Lightened Cream Cheese Frosting

I am revisiting my Friday evening’s post where I bombed on my no-bake oatmeal cookies. Here is what I discovered. A friend of mine, who is a professional baker, told me where I went wrong.  I didn’t boil it long enough and should have added the peanut butter at the same time I added the…

No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

I am going to my first Fitbloggin meetup tomorrow in Oakland.  I will be meeting some great bloggers, including the famous Danica from Danica’s Daily.  I signed up to bring a dessert.  I made these no-bake oatmeal cookies.  Here is the recipe. Ingredients 1/2 cup 2% milk ¾ cup Splenda sugar Blend 3 tablespoons unsweetened…

Philly Style Wrap

I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July.  I have been down in the dumps lately. I also managed to get a summer cold.  I’ve got the scratchy itchy throat and my head is so congested.  Believe it or not, my appetite hasn’t been very good either.  I have, however, managed to…

Satisfying A Chocolate Craving

I am the first one to admit that I am a true chocoholic.  So not having chocolate as part of my daily routine most definitely can NOT be avoided.  One of the tricks I use to get the taste of chocolate is to have a morning Mocha.  I have a Keurig machine so I start…

Slow Cooked Chicken Soup

Today was definitely the kind of day that you crave something warm for the soul.  So why not a slow cooked chicken soup.  It definitely fits in with the WW PP plan, it’s super easy to throw together and in the end you can freeze whatever is left over. (if you are even lucky enough…

The Other Side of the Counter

I am officially no longer sitting behind the counter, greeting and weighing.  I am now in front of the counter.  I will be going back to my old WW meetings on Friday’s.  I am looking forward to being a member rather than an employee.  It is where I need to be for now.  I’ll start…

Fried Rice

Today I was reviewing my Kickstart Guide that I received from WW when we switched over to the new PP plan.  I came up with a quick way to make fried rice.  And of so tasty too! If you are wondering what the Kickstart guide is, go back to your Getting Started booklet, there is a…

Room for Improvement

Happy Sunday!  It’s been a great weekend.  The weather has been quite pleasant.  I still haven’t completely come to terms with getting back into the swing of following the plan.  I have yet to start tracking my food consumption.  I think I am more conscience of what I am eating, but we all know that…

Pasta Carbonara

It has been a painfully slow week for me this week.  My family suffered a tragedy and the news has devasted me immensely.  It makes you reevaluate your priorities and what is most important in your lives.  I want to let you all know that I have also re-evaluated my blog these past months.  I have…

Baked Chimichangas

It’s finally Friday.  We haven’t had a Friday night at the movies in several weeks.  I am not sure we will tonight either.  This recipe is quite simple to make, especially if you are using leftover chicken or purchase chicken that was fully cooked like mine. These chimichangas are oven-browned instead of fried.  You won’t…

The Laughing Cow Alfredo

Oh My Goodness!  That is about all I can say about this evenings recipe.  I found this one on the Laughing Cow’s website.  For their version of this recipe click here. I modified it just a tiny bit.  I have to tell you that even though the alfredo sauce was thin, it was not lacking…
