Sausage and Cheese Things

I was feeling extremely hungry one night, so I made these awesome things for dinner:

Sausage and cheese sandwiches

To make the meal, I used:

Two links of chicken sausages (the garlic ones)

Two English muffins (light wheat ones)

Fat-free cheddar cheese



I don’t own a toaster, so I sliced the English muffins in half, stuck them in the oven, and cut up the sausages into bite-size pieces.  While the muffins toasted, I cooked the sausages in a pan.  Next, I cut up cheddar and tomatoes and scallions.  I added everything on top of the toasted muffins, then stuck them back in the oven.  I flipped the sausage pieces so they would toast on both sides nicely, then I put both on a plate and nommed.

It was so good, and took me about fifteen minutes.  And I was stuffed after–low in points and really good.  I ate it with a side of strawberries and pineapple, so it was perfectly matched.

Another Food Fail

I decided to try my hand at making these delicious looking things:

chicken wraps

They didn’t look too hard, and seemed like a really healthy choice.  Let’s talk about how badly it went wrong.  First of all, I totally forgot the asparagus for mine.  Whatever–asparagus makes your pee smell weird anyway.  True story.  Then, I may or may not have burned them.

Anyway, to make these MY way, you’ll need:

Thin cut chicken breast

Red peppers

Sliced cheese of your choosing (I used cheddar)



Bread crumbs

Asparagus (best if you remember to take them home with you)

You use the chicken breast as a hold for the rest of the stuff–I put scallions on the outside with the bread crumbs.  Pop them in a pan and cook at 320 for 25 minutes (or until you remember they’re in the oven).  And if you’re really lucky, they won’t come out looking like this:

chicken disaster

I feel like this is the only appropriately response:

Whatever.  They still tasted delicious!

Vegetable Surprise

I needed to fill up on a meal that was zero points (because I didn’t have a lot left), so I took out every vegetable in the fridge and combined it in a way that was so delicious.  Check out this awesome picture:

In it I put:

Mushrooms (cut up)

Spinach leaves



Snow peas



Pine nuts (Totally points, but I only put a tiny tiny bit)

I cooked everything together until the juice was gone, then I ate it.  It was the perfect meal to hold me over for a few hours before I could eat an actual dinner.  I’m definitely going to do this again–it’s also a great way to clean out the fridge!

Tuna Pizza

This is massively quick and easy to make.  It’s the perfect I-got-home-late-and-feel-lazy meal, especially if you turn to pizza when you’re in that late, lazy mood.  You’ll need:

1 can of tuna (I like it in water)

Light mayo



Flat bread/Pita

Mix your tuna and mayo and veggies together, then spread it over the flat bread and cut.  There it is.  A healthy, two second meal.  You can also throw some cheese on it and pop it in the oven for a quick tuna melt.  Personally, I don’t like cheese on my tuna, so when I’m craving pizza and fish, I go this route.

Avocado Pasta

I tried making pasta with a healthier sauce–so I picked one based on guacamole.  I know, I know.  Those of you who know me can’t believe I made myself pasta.  I was having a craving.  Anyway, here’s what you need to make what I did:

1 ripe avocado

1 tomato

Half an onion


Whole wheat pasta

Mozzarella Cheese (I used freshly made from whole milk)



Set up your pot to boil, put in your pasta.  While that’s going, blend everything except for the pasta and mozzarella together until satisfied.  I went for a super creamy consistency for easy mixing, but if you like chunks, I suggest baking your tomatoes and adding those after you blend the avocado.

After your pasta is done, mix your chopped up cheese and sauce.  You should get this:

avocado pastaI really enjoyed the pasta–it satisfied my craving, and the sauce was really creamy without being too heavy.  Om nom nom.  I suggest trying it out!

Baked Zucchini Sticks

I’m very lazy when it comes to cooking–and I want my food at be as healthy as possible with as little effort as possible.  I decided to throw some chopped zucchini into bread crumbs, baked them, and call it “zucchini sticks.”  I don’t really know what I was expecting.  Okay.  I lied.  I knew exactly what I expected: Point-free, bar-style zucchini sticks.

Result?  They were terrible.  They got cold really fast and tasted like bleck.  If you want to make these and have them taste like bar-food, make them fried.  This is not the way.

Easiest Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Nick requested I make sugar-free cookies for his most recent party.  I’ve never made any sugar-free sweets, so I had a moment of panic.  Then I found literally the easiest recipe in the universe.  Prepare yourself.

You’ll need:

2 cups of peanut butter (I used reduced fat)

2 cups of sugar substitute (I used splenda)

2 eggs

You mix these together until they form a ball, then you make them into whatever shape you like best.  For his party I used a cookie cutter to make the cookies into pumpkins (and then I used icing pens to decorate them).  I made them a second time because they came out so good.  I made these into plain circles.  With this recipe, I was able to make 50 smallish cookies.  Here’s a picture!

Pop them in the oven at 325 and cook until just a little brown.  I burned mine a little on purpose because I like my cookies extra crunchy.  If you take them out sooner, they’re soft in the middle (om nom nom).  Enjoy!

Super Easy Fish and Rice

I’m the master of being a lazy cook.  Here’s a meal that takes absolutely no more effort than buying pizza.  To make the rice, I threw rice, crushed red pepper, and peas into a pot–the ratio for rice is 1 (rice): 2 (water).  However much rice you put in, double the amount of water.  While that cooked, I prepared a flounder fillet.

I placed it on a piece of aluminum foil and on top placed: Thinly sliced tomato, pine nuts, scut scallions, and chopped garlic (and some salt).  I popped that in the oven and wallah!  Fish and rice!

Easy, Healthy Mini-Pizzas

I decided I wanted pizza for dinner, but I’d already gone to the pizza place the night before.  I was too embarrassed to go again, so I thought I should make my own mini-pizzas (plus I just bought prosciutto and I was really excited to eat it).  They came out super yummy.

You’ll need:

Small tortilla wraps (I used Old El Paso)

Salsa (I went for super hot)

Shredded cheese (I used reduced fat mozzarella)

Your topping of choice

I put the wraps on a piece of tin foil, spread the salsa around, covered it in cheese and placed my cut up prosciutto on top.  After, I set my oven to 350, popped them inside and let them cook until the cheese was just beginning to brown on the top.  It took about 20 minutes and was so delicious!  The tortilla was crunch at the edges and the cheese was melted to perfection.  Mmmm!
