Made this because we are on weight watchers in my house. I know GASP diet food! But really it doesn't taste like diet food. I make arroz con pollo a lot in my house bc we are Cuban and love it but making it healthy is a task and Gina on the skinnytaste.com website even pleased my mother who is my Cuban food guru.

It was amazing, flavorful, and really made my husband feel like we were cheating on our diet when we weren't.

Had a great dip over the weekend with pantry items:

Mock Sushi Dip - (NO FISH)

Take a block of cream cheese and slice in half( horz). put bottom on a dish with small lip
on bottom half spread wasabi paste couple tablespoons 2-3
top with chopped pickled ginger (jar sushi type) sam 2-3 TBLSPs
flip top half of cream cheese on and lightly push on sesame seeds
douse with soy sauce and serve with rice crackers or crostini's - Was SOOO good

And nothing was left!

Not a big fancy recipe, but incredibly good (and not as spicy as one would think):

Chicken burgers grilled with salt, cracked pepper, McCormick Montreal Chicken seasoning, paprika, and thyme...topped with pepper jack cheese and two slices of jalapenos...with a bit of spicy mayo (mayo + Frank's Red Hot sauce). EXCELLENT!

Last night I made a buffalo chicken meatloaf. I'm trying to eat more healthy and had ground chicken to use up. I looked at a couple of recipes online and tweaked them to my liking. Here's what I did:

1 lb. ground chicken
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
1/4 cup carrot, finely chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 egg white
1/4 cup Frank's hot sauce (or another buffalo-style sauce)
1 cup Italian-style breadcrumbs
Sea salt
Cracked pepper
Thyme
McCormick's Montreal Chicken Seasoning

Preheat oven to 350. Place ground chicken in a bowl and mix with onion, celery, and carrot. Add garlic and egg white. Mix together with breadcrumbs and seasonings. After finely mixed, add hot sauce and mix together. You can add more hot sauce, if need be depending on your tastes. Brush top with hot sauce and cover with foil. Place in a meatloaf pan and bake for 30. Take foil off and bake for an additional ten minutes until crispy on top and cooked in center. Let set for 10 minutes before serving.

Note: You can also mix in blue cheese crumbles or spread them over the top during baking. I was trying to cut back on the fat content and didn't do this. It would make a great taste though!

Sounds delish

Soups! Love soups! Yesterday I made a huge pot of hamburger soup, which is basically browned hamburger (drained) with anything you want thrown in. Last nights was:
Hamburger (browned and drained)
1 can Ro Tel (for a little heat)
1 Jar canned garden tomatoes (yum)
3 cups beef broth (aprox.)
3 potatoes (cubed)
4 carrots (sliced)
1 large onion (chopped)
2 stalks celery (sliced)
1/2 cup dried garbanzo beans
1/2 package frozen corn
1/2 package frozen spinach
1/2 head cauliflower(chunked up)
black pepper (to taste)
red pepper flakes (to taste)

I add or delete items by whim, depending on what I have on hand. We love it and enjoy that it's different every time I make it. I sometimes add chopped brocolli, different kinds of beans, squash, whatever I have on hand!

Easy Pumpkin Bundt Cake

This is the time of year for all things pumpkin. Honestly, I rarely use boxed cake mix but when I saw this recipe I thought "why not" because it is so quick to make. It came out moist and tasty!

Pumpkin Bundt Cake

1 18.25 oz box of yellow cake mix
1 3.4 oz box of butterscotch pudding
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Combine all of the ingredients and beat on low speed for 30 seconds. (I use a mixer). Then beat for 4 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured 10" fluted pan or Bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 50 - 55 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Serve it with whipped cream or glaze it with the recipe below.

Cream Cheese Glaze:

1 3 oz package cream cheese
3 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons powdered sugar.

Beat until smooth. Add more milk for a thinner glaze.
