Mushroom Soup

Mushroom Soup

I am always on the look out for great soup recipes, especially in these cold winter months. I find they are the perfect thing to have in the freezer when I want a snack or quick warm meal. Normally at the beginning of the month I like to pick a few soups to make and will freeze them in individual portions so I can grab them at a moment’s notice. This month I made a big batch of 1 point veggie soup and this delicious creamy mushroom soup. You will never believe it is only 3 points a serving.

Skinny Cheeseburger Dip

Skinny Cheeseburger Dip

Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s 2013. That just seems crazy. Today’s recipe is what I like to think of as a transitional recipe. Given most of us have likely indulged the last few weeks, it’s time to get back into a healthy eating routine. However it can be hard to do that when you vow to eat only lettuce for days. So this recipe can help you begin to make the transition. It tastes naughty and indulgent but is surprisingly light. Bake up some tortilla chips in the oven and enjoy this dip while easing back into better routines. Also after hearing requests from many of you, the special meal plan pricing is extended through today. That means you can have access to weekly meal plans for less than $2.10 a month. Just purchase sometime before midnight EST today.

Candy Cane White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Candy Cane White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Happy New Year’s Eve!

If you are like me and staring at mountains of leftover candy canes, you likely at this point are brainstorming ways to use them up before they become a permanent fixture in your home. Personally I am likely to leave them out for at least the next 6 months if I can’t find a use for them, crossing my fingers that some random guest will have a soft spot for candy canes in April. True story. So instead I am finding ways to use them up, like these delicious cookies. Oatmeal, white chocolate, and crushed candy canes join forces to make one delicious cookie for under 100 calories. You could also use dark chocolate in place of the white chocolate depending on what you like.

How are you using up leftover holiday treats?
