Pinned It, Did It Monday {recipe edition}

pinned itWelcome to a recipe edition of Pinned It, Did It Monday!  This post was requested by Gabe who is always on the lookout for good recipes.  These were all found this week as I was searching for “skinny” recipes.  That’s right folks, the diet has begun.  Have I told you that Kara (my sis-in-law-to-be) asked me to be a bridesmaid?!  That means I have 200 days to shed a few before donning the super cute dress she picked out.  So here’s to some healthier #1

My review:  I used white whole wheat flour and made the blueberry muffins.  They were great. I want to make a bunch for quick breakfast grabs.

My review:  William didn’t love it, but it’s a weight watchers recipe and has 0 points.  So that means I love it.  And it was a crockpot recipe, which is nice on busy days.

My review: A nice list of 20 recipes.  I’ve made the Asian Glazed Drumsticks in the past and enjoyed them.  This week, I made the skinny chicken enchiladas.  While they definitely were the “skinny” version, I still really enjoyed them.
