Layered Chicken

When I first started doing Weight Watchers, I found a slew of WW-friendly recipes. We eat a lot of Mexican recipes, and I enjoyed the flavors in this one.

Without further ado, here is one of my favorite and most cheesily decadent recipes.

Swiss onion dip

Okay, before I tell you the recipe, I have to tell you where it came from.  My friend, Tyler, is six. He hates onions.

It was delicious.   It was so delicious that I asked his mother for the recipe, right there next to the pool.   I was surprised to find out that Swiss Onion Dip … Read more

Grace ate a lot – a whole grown up-sized portion – without the garnishes.   Print Recipe mmm… potato chowder Servings Ingredients 8 cup raw potatoes diced1 cup onion chopped43 oz fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth (3 of … Read more

Crockpot beef stew

Joe made crockpot beef stew for supper last night. It was delicious, even if a little high in points. Joe and I sat down to eat, and I offered Grace sweet potatoes and corn. She refused both. On a lark, I offered Grace a small piece of potato out of my stew. She gobbled it down. Same with a piece of carrot. I even gave her some of the roast beef, and she ate it all hungrily. By the end of the meal, Grace had eaten half of a cup of beef stew. I guess that was her way of … Read more
