Banana Scookies

Banana Scookies
My scone recipe didn't quite work out as a scone, but they made a great cookie - or Scookie! The best of both worlds! Only 2 points for one, 3 points for 2 and 5 points for 3.

Baked Apples with Vanilla Pudding

Baked Apples with Vanilla Pudding
I never really had a sweet tooth until a few years ago.  Like seriously I could pass by cakes, cupcakes, etc. I was a salty girl through and through – salt and vinegar chips, cheetos, doritos – you name it I loved it! But then my love affair of gummies came about.  Damn you Albanese gummies!  Why do you have to be so good and...

Apple Pie Two Ways

Apple Pie Two Ways
Another holiday without my husband.  This would technically be the 4th Thanksgiving without him.  The last Thanksgiving I had with him was in the hospital.  He wasn’t conscious.  My Mom brought Boston Market and we ate turkey and mashed potatoes with hospital sounds surrounding us and nurses coming in and out.  It’s still so surreal when I think about that last week of his life. ...

Apple Strudel

Apple Strudel
Apple strudel.  This apple strudel with cream cheese filling and glaze completely cured my jones for apple coffee cake.  I know, those are two completely different things, but on Sunday morning I legit almost made an apple coffee cake with two sticks of butter. But I remembered that I have goals and I am going to crush this last quarter of 2018.  Guess what –...

Classic Apple Pie

Classic Apple Pie
Classic apple pie is probably my favorite pie of all, although truth be told, pretty sure there isn’t a pie I don’t like.  One pie on my list to try though?  Strawberry rhubarb!  Tony had a taste for it towards the end of the summer of 2014, and for some reason by then, I couldn’t find rhubarb anywhere.  And well, after that, he didn’t even...

Mini Cherry Cheesecake

Mini Cherry Cheesecake
I had another great weigh in this week! I am tracking all my points and that makes all the difference. I still eat all the things I love, but stick within the points. I posted this picture below and asked how I handle my points. I get 23 points a day and 35 extra weekly points. That’s 196 points a week. Some days I may...

Mini Cherry Pies

Mini Cherry Pies
Mini Cherry Pies.  Swoon.  And you know what?  There are only 4 ingredients in these mini pies:  refrigerated pie crust, canned lite cherry filling, egg yolk (mixed with a tiny bit of water) for a wash, and a sprinkle of course sugar.  That’s it! And guess where I found the reduced calorie cherry pie filling?  The Dollar Tree – who knew?  1/3 cup is only...

Blueberry Galette

Blueberry Galette
I did something that I haven’t done on a holiday in a really long time – I started it out at the gym!  I know, I could hardly believe it myself.  The kadults and I didn’t really work out our holiday meal plan until . . . yesterday morning.  I knew my proteins were going to be whole slow cooked chicken and a bone in...
