Well, here I am. I'm finally done birthday partying with the Hubby after a lovely weekend. Whew! Thank goodness that's over with! Can you believe that I HAD to indulge in some chocolate birthday cake...TWICE?! I know! THE HORROR! Right?
Anywho, today I am back to the normal grind and as I promised last week, I'm announcing my latest blog giveaway right here...right now! Whoo hoo! Free stuff! God Bless America!
So, here's the deal. You all know that I am a foodie, right? And you all know that said foodie-ness has put me on a never ending quest for a smaller ass which has led me to be a Weight Watchers member for...oh, I don't know...the last hinty bazillion years or so, right?
Well, to help my quest along (and yours), I've decided to turn my regular old Wednesday posts into WEIGHT LOSS RECIPE WEDNESDAYS! That means that every Wednesday, I will post a healthy, YUMMY recipe for y'all to try. Of course, I will only post recipes that I try in advance AND that I think are delish. That means you will be guaranteed a healthy recipe every week that doesn't taste like ass! How lucky are you?
Now to get us all in the mood to cook great foods for ourselves and take control of what we eat, I'm giving away four Rachael Ray cookbooks!
Two of these:
And two of these:
FYI? I just happen to own a set of these cookbooks myself and I LOVE them because they have easy recipes that utilize easy to find ingredients that won't break the bank. Trust me. They are awesome!
So, if you'd like to enter the give-away (Pretty please, with chocolate on top!) , all you have to do is leave me your best healthy recipe in the comment section of this post.
That's it! That's all you have to do!
Share a recipe with the class and you are automatically entered to win ONE of these great cookbooks! Think of what a great resource of recipes that we'll be able to share with each other!
To get this party started, I'm going to share the first recipe with you. It's a recipe for Low Fat Banana Creamy Pie! AND IT IS YUMMY!
Low Fat Banana Creamy Pie:
1 1/2 cups cold skim milk
1 package sugar free INSTANT vanilla pudding
1 8 oz. carton light Cool Whip
18 low fat cinnamon graham cracker SQUARES (about 2 1/2" X 2 1/2")
2 medium bananas, sliced
In a bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for about 3 minutes. Let stand until thickened (a few minutes). Fold in half of the Cool Whip. Place 9 graham cracker squares in an ungreased 8 inch cake pan (square). Top with half of the pudding mix. Top pudding mix with half of the bananas. Repeat layers one more time. Spread remaining Cool Whip over top of dessert. Cover and refrigerate overnight before serving. Makes NINE servings.
And just to prove to you that this recipe is tried and true, I present my recipe guinea pigs, THE HUBBY AND MY BUD---LOU, indulging in a creamy slice of this banana goodness:
Yes. They do have their arms intertwined. And, NO. I have no freakin idea why....
Here, I told them to react to how DELICIOUS the dessert was. Instead, I got the "we're waiting for the short bus" pose....Seriously, guys? WTF is that?
And finally, here's Lou...telling you just how yummy this dessert is:
Can you say, HAM?!
