Berry Sundae

My absolute favorite summer time treat is ice cream. Unfortunately some of it can really pack on the calories. So one of my favorite desserts to make are berry sundae's.

3 Weight Watcher Points


- 1/2 cup Edy's Slow Churned Ice Cream

- Well, you know what to do!

sausage cheese mcmuffin

I am IN LOVE with McDonald's Sausage McMuffin. Unfortunately the grease dripping from the wrapper and 9 point Weight Watcher value doesn't easily fit in to my eating style. So I have to improvise in order to not feel deprived and here's what I came up with!

1 serving = 1 sandwich = 3 Weight Watcher Points

- 100 calorie high fiber english muffin- 1 -2% cheese slice (45 calories)
- 1 turkey sausage link (Banquet makes these in turkey that you can easily heat up in the microwave)Directions:

1. Toast english muffin in toaster.
2. Heat sausage in microwave and then slice in thin rounds.
3. Lay sausage and cheese on english muffin and microwave for around 20 seconds.

brushetta chicken

I often times get some yummy recipes from the Kraft emails I receive every so often in my inbox. This is one that sparked my interest because it seemed pretty healthy. For their picture, recipe, etc. go here. It ended up being delicious and easy and I will definitely be making it again!

1 Serving = 1 tender (about 2 ounces) = 3 Weight Watcher Points


- 4 small Boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)(I used 4 tenders)
- 1/4 cup KRAFT Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing, divided
- 1 Tomato, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese (I actually only sprinkled a teeny tiny amount on each tender)
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil


1. I marinated the chicken in the dressing all day.

2. I chopped the basil (I used dried basil) and tomato and mixed in a little of the cheese.

3. I topped each tender with some of the mixture.

4. Their recipe grills it but I just cooked it in the oven (in a clear glass dish) at 350 for about a 1/2 hour (or until the chicken was done).

banana boats

A couple of months ago we had a Family Home Evening lesson on Noah, the Ark, and what it means to be obedient. For our treat we made our own boats. Here's how to make your own yummy treat!

- bananas
- chocolate chips
- marshmallows
- peanut butter


1. Slice the banana's length wise - but not enough to go all the way through.

2. Spread as much peanut butter as you wish.

3. Top with chips and marshmallows.

4. Wrap in foil, place on baking sheet, and cook in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
