trust me you can have these fries…

FRY TIME!  Trust me this is one of my favorite phrases…there is just something so great about FRIES!!  For me it doesn’t matter if I am having them with burgers, grilled chicken or on their own I just LOVE FRIES!!  The only problem with fries is they are just not …

Quinoa to the rescue…

Quinoa is a favorite with me.  I always try to find ways to get it into the menu at least once a week.  I mean not only is quinoa super “in” right now, but it is also loaded with tons of good stuff for you.  I mean it is naturally gluten …

chicken chili? yes, please

The Hubby LOVES chili.  He loves it so much the very first party we ever had as a married couple (over 10 years ago) he made chili for 30 people with all the toppings…and everyone loved it.  Ever since then we have been making chili for lots of get togethers …

cute, mini & skinny meatloaf

I have been craving comfort food lately.  You know what I am talking about a cheesy hamburger macaroni bake, or maybe some loaded mashed potatoes  or even better how about a salisbury steak with a rich gravy…boy oh boy I could get myself in trouble with all those for sure.  As …

fajita skewers please…

If you were to ask The Hubby what his favorite all time side is you might be surprised what his answer would be…some might say mashed potatoes (Ok I would say mashed potatoes), some might say rice or broccoli but The Hubby would say cornbread.  He LOVES cornbread!!  There is just …

all day beans…pinto beans

I don’t know about you but this weekend is going to be all about finishing up some around the house projects and enjoying the nice weather we are going to be having…nice like in weather in the low 80’s with a nice breeze.  This is one of the many reason …

skinny oatmeal n muffins

Mornings are made for muffins…like these blueberry muffins, strawberry muffins, chocolate chip muffins or even these bran muffins  but sometimes muffins can be really full of all that stuff we don’t need (i.e. fat, calories & points)…but don’t worry I found these muffins!   First off I love oatmeal & I love …

a skinny tetrazzini…but don’t tell anyone

Some of my most favorite dinners are those from my childhood and chicken tetrazzini is one for sure.  There is just something so good about pasta, chicken and a creamy sauce all cooked together in a casserole.  To be honest I am not sure if it was the actual dish …
