BBQ chicken pizza

I woke up late yesterday which meant I was pretty much just going to have brunch! I hadn’t gone to the store yet, so I was searching for what I could make. I decided to make a pizza. I used to be so afraid of making dough with yeast, but it couldn’t be easier. And…

Homemade Mozzarella cheese sticks

About a month ago, I was on www.tastespotting.com and I came across a recipe this blogger made for homemade mozzarella sticks. I knew I was going to try them on Thanksgiving as an appetizer. I’ve tried making them before, I’ve fried them, baked them, but they never turned out right. Either the cheese oozed all…

One day to go….

I still can’t believe the year is coming to an end soon. It always seems like its summer, then my kids are back in school and then the Holidays are upon us! This week I have been especially busy. I once again overextended myself in offering to bake things for charity, collect items for a…

Lightened dishes

Somehow I got on Paula Deen’s e-mail list, and I’ve been getting e-mails from her site almost on a daily basis. I almost always delete it because I’m pretty sure none of her recipes will help me lose weight! One time, and I am not joking about this, I saw her deep fry lasagna! Click…

Cinnamon Jumbo Muffins – My healthy version

So yesterday I told you I don’t mind making things with weird ingredients, so I am re-posting a recipe for muffins I made where I replaced the butter with silken tofu. Since tofu doesn’t really taste like anything, you won’t even know its in there. The result is a super moist muffin that tastes awesome!…

Blondie mini muffins

I have a blogger friend Celine who has a gorgeous Vegan recipe site. (Have cake will travel). She made these amazing looking blondies using of all things, chickpeas! I have no fear using strange ingredients to make things. I’ve added tofu to muffins I’ve made; I’ve used black beans to make brownies, etc… I wanted…

Muir Glen Reserve Tomatoes/Biggest Loser re-cap

When I got home from work last night there was a package waiting for me. I knew exactly what it was, so I was excited to open it up. Muir Glen was nice enough to send me a free box of their reserve Organic canned tomatoes! Just as many Napa Valley wineries bottle both a…

Leftover veggie soup!

I had some leftover orange cauliflower, a few potatoes, a few carrots, some red onion and fat free half and half, so I made a go at turning that into soup! First I cut up the cauliflower, peeled and cut the potatoes and cut them into smaller pieces, grated and sliced the carrot, and put…
