Egg Bake, part 2

Recipe From: my mom, recipe was posted here before, here it is

Ingredients: same as before, minus bacon

With a side of fruit.
Rating: still delicious

  • Today I used regular eggs, fat free cottage cheese, reduced fat cheddar, reduced fat margarine - the rest was the same (swiss cheese, green onions...).
  • Used 1 1/4c of each of the cheeses.
  • Still made them in muffin tins, 18.
WW PointsPlus*: 4 per "muffin"

Baked Oatmeal

Recipe From: this webpage (inspired by some I found on Pinterest, but this one uses quick oats)

Ingredients & Directions: see linked webpage above for ingredients and directions

Rating: tasty
Warming Up: warms up well
  • First off, I made half of a batch and got 3 good sized servings.
  • I used bananas for the bottom layer of fruit and a frozen berry mix for the top. I also used whatever nuts I had on hand (half almonds, half pecans).
  • I omitted the butter put on top, after baking, I didn't find it necessary.
  • Next time I don't think I'll use bananas, probably chopped apple or peaches for bottom - or just berries for the entire thing.
WW PointsPlus*: 7 (figured using 6 servings for the whole recipe (as is - minus the butter on top) without the fruit. PointsPlus may change depending on fruit you use.)

Cheesy Cauliflower Puree

My new recent online obsession is Pinterest. I use it to find DIY ideas, things for my classroom, fitness inspiration, and MUCH, MUCH more! It's also a wonderful place to find recipes of all kinds. This is the second recipe I've tried from Pinterest.

Recipe From: found on Pinterest, here's the original page

Ingredients & Directions: Please see webpage (link above) for ingredients and directions.

Rating: Delizioso! I had to stop myself from eating the whole bowl. Creamy like mashed potatoes, but also light.
Warming Up: warms up perfectly
  • I used skim milk and reduced fat cheddar cheese, but did not skimp on the butter. I also only used the floret part, barely any stems. (next time, I will use more stem so I would have more puree) 
  • I added some garlic powder during the food processing stage. 
WW PointsPlus*: 3 servings, 4 PointsPlus each

No Pudge Fudge Brownies

My friend has been raving about these brownies since she was a Weight Watchers member, and I've always been meaning to try I recently did.
No Pudge Fudge Brownie Mix

These brownies are SO easy to make, just add some yogurt to the powder mix (directions are on the box) and bake. Because I am recently obsessed with making things in muffin tins, I made these as "muffins." Making them in a muffin tin not only let each one be an "edge" piece (my favorite!), but allowed them to be pre-portioned. :)

I highly recommend these brownies, so rush out and get the mix today!

Rating: so yummy, and gooey, and delicious!

Rating: pretty tasty
Warming Up:
  • I didn't use the poblanos, and used a green pepper instead.
  • I'll probably use less cumin next time.
  • I baked in a 11"x7" baking dish and got 6 servings.
WW PointsPlus*: as I prepared, 10.
