Butternut Squash Pasta with Bacon

This Butternut Squash Pasta with Bacon tastes so decadent, creamy and savory, you’ll never guess it’s lightened up! This dish is perfect for fall and a great way to use one of my favorite pieces of seasonal produce, butternut squash. The hint of sweetness from the squash pairs perfectly with smoky bacon and salty parmesan cheese and makes for a rich, creamy sauce without any need for cream or butter. I like to serve this Butternut Squash Pasta with Bacon with a side salad, but it’s also good with extra roasted veggies tossed right in with the pasta! As indulgent as this pasta tastes, you’ll be happy to know that a cup of this tasty pasta dish is only 238 calories or 6 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints! (more…)

Baked Stuffed Apples

Apple crisp is one of my all-time favorite desserts, and these rustic Baked Stuffed Apples are like a healthier, single serve crisp that completely fulfills my cravings. Plus, they’re adorable, so they’re great to serve company or your family. I love eating these on their own but you can also serve them hot out of the oven with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream if you like. These Baked Stuffed Apples make a great fall dessert, but I’m not going to pretend I haven’t also eaten one for breakfast when there are leftovers! Better still, each of these stuffed apples are only 222 calories or 5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints! (more…)

Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

I’m pretty sure this Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry is going to become a regular meal at our house! My husband loved it, I loved it, and it’s super easy to make – my favorite! This stir fry is a perfect weeknight meal because it comes together quickly and is just 361 calories or 5 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints per serving! I used broccoli and matchstick carrots this time, but feel free to experiment and add or substitute vegetables like snow peas, water chestnuts, red bell peppers, etc. I like to eat a serving of this Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry over ¾ cup of sticky Jasmine rice. It’s perfect together and I love when the rice gets coated in the extra sauce. SO good.   (more…)

Fall is just around the corner and these Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are the perfect autumn breakfast! Apples and cinnamon are one of my favorite flavor combinations any time of year, but it seems especially good in the sweater-weather months when the air is crisp and the leaves are turning! These Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are super simple to make and you can easily double the recipe to accommodate a larger family. If you want to give your family options, you can even make them alongside a batch of Blueberry Pancakes, Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes, or Banana Silver Dollar Pancakes. Plus, a two-pancake serving is only 156 calories or 4 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints! (more…)

Buffalo Cauliflower Wings

These baked Buffalo Cauliflower Wings are flavorful, crispy and make an awesome vegetarian appetizer or side dish. My husband loves cauliflower, but I’ve always felt kind of “meh” about it. I’ll eat it, but it doesn’t often excite me. These Buffalo Cauliflower Wings, however, definitely excite me – we both love them! The cauliflower florets are battered and then coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs, baked to perfection and tossed in spicy Buffalo wing sauce. What’s not to love? I actually liked these baked Buffalo Cauliflower wings better than fried ones because they still turned out battered and crispy, but without the greasiness. Plus, a one cup serving is only 124 calories or 3 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints! (more…)

Stuffed with provolone cheese, prosciutto and spinach and then lightly breaded in seasoned breadcrumbs, I love how these seems a little fancy when really they’re so simple. I actually got the idea for these when my husband brought something similar home from the ready-to-be-cooked area of the grocery store and I knew I could recreate them to be lightened up and just as delicious. We actually liked these ones more! Plus each of these Chicken Florentine Roulades are just 398 calories or 6 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints! (more…)

Mixed Berry Puff Pastry Tarts

These Mixed Berry Puff Pastry Tarts are the perfect just-sweet-enough dessert, or even a special treat as part of your morning breakfast (if you see them as more of a danish). I ate them for both, so…who needs to choose? I love these for a summer party, but flaky, crispy puff pastry with warm, juicy berries and a sprinkling of powdered sugar is something I will always be in the mood for, no matter the season. These are versatile, so use whatever berries you have on hand. I had a mix, but you can definitely just make blueberry or raspberry tarts if you wish. My husband loved these too so I know we’ll be making these again, plus, who doesn’t love a dessert that’s only 99 calories or 3 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints? (more…)

This Bubble Up Chili Cheese Dog Casserole is a guilt-free guilty pleasure the whole family will love! I know you all love my bubble up casseroles (I have everything from a pizza flavored one, to chicken alfredo, to enchilada to pot pie and more!) and I thought it would be really fun and tasty to make one using the craveable flavors of a chili cheese dog. This casserole has a hearty base of turkey chili with beans along with hot dogs, melted cheddar cheese and the bubbling up of biscuits throughout. My husband ate this for several meals in a row!

Chocolate Hummus

I am positively swooning over this smooth, rich, perfectly sweet, and easy chocolate hummus. You’re probably used to savory hummus flavors like my Ranch Hummus or Buffalo Wing Hummus, but if you’ve never tried a sweet variety, get ready to fall in love! This simple chocolate hummus uses only 6 ingredients and comes together in less than 5 minutes (including measuring out the ingredients) – what’s easier than that? I can’t get over how decadent and chocolatey this tastes, and it’s perfect as a dessert, a snack or as party food (make this to be a potluck hero). Plus, a generous ¼ cup (which just means a serving is a little more than ¼ cup) is only 127 calories or 3 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints! (more…)
