Garlicky Spinach Cheese Squares (4 points +)

11 Mar

I have a lot of dip recipes, but I am always on the search for a new appetizer that is a little different and still delicious.  Frozen spinach is very easy to store and the rest of the ingredients are always in the pantry, so it is an easy last minute snack. It has lots of iron and yummy cheese! Everyone loves them!  They are 4 points + for a small square or you can cut them into large squares and eat it as a meal with a large salad! Enjoy!!


5 Ingredient Spaghetti Carbonara

8 Jan

Every family has that meal that reminds them of childhood. In our family my Dad traveled a lot for work, so when he was home it was a special treat, especially when he cooked. My Dad had a few recipes that he did over and over again, but by far our favorite was his spaghetti carbonara. Unlike the carbonara you can get in restaurants that has a heavy cream sauce and peas, this carbonara is lighter and very simple to make. The trick to making this carbonara just right is dump the hot pasta water, immediately put the spaghetti back in the pot, add the eggs and toss very quickly so that the egg coats the strands of pasta and does not turn into scrambled eggs. This meal is delicious with a fresh salad and garlic bread. You will be in bacon heaven!!
