It is officially a new year and with every new year comes resolutions and goals. I love to set goals for myself each year. The number one New Years Resolution is to lose weight. It is basically on everyone’s list of to-dos. I know it will definitely be on mine after I have my baby girl. In the meantime, I have dedicated this year and the rest of this pregnancy to being healthy. That means eating healthy and exercising regularly. I am trying to gain as little excess weight as possible with this pregnancy. Weight Watchers endorsed products like Yoplait Greek 100 calorie yogurt or Green Giant canned and frozen vegetables are perfect for a healthy snack or, with the right pairings, a meal.
General Mills is giving away an amazing gift basket to one of my luck readers! All you have to do is visit Yoplait, Progresso or Green Giant and leave me a comment telling me which healthy recipe you will make with Weight Watchers endorsed products. Super easy!
I will announce the winner on January 24th! General Mills will be sending you the gift basket directly.

My favorite thing served at our wedding were loaded potatoes. We had a “Loaded Potato Bar” set up and it was a huge hit with all of our guests. These Betty Crocker Potato Mixes are absolutely great for the perfect Holiday side dish. Out of the 11 potatoe varieties, I chose to purchase the “Loaded” kind so that I can set up a loaded potato bar just like we had at our wedding. I’m a huge potato lover so I am always on the look for potato side dish recipes. I am so excited to try this one out on all of my family.
The Betty Crocker potato mixes are so easy to make! You can bake them or cook them on the stove top. I chose to cook mine on the stove and they turned out great. To make the potatoes, you follow their easy directions on the back of the box.
I found the Betty Crocker potato mixes at Walmart with the boxed dinners. They were actually on display in the center aisle as well.
After cooking the potatoes, I added chives and then set up my potato bar. I included bacon bits, cheese and sour cream. My family is pretty plain and simple, so I didn’t think we needed any other additives. My potato bar was a hit! All of my family loved it and it was so quick and easy to make and set up. I will definitely be doing this again at future parties and gatherings.
Be sure to visit Betty Crocker to download a $0.50 off coupon so you can make my rendition or your own holiday potato recipe!
I will choose a winner January 2nd! Good Luck and #GetYourBettyOn!
I love to bake but I’m not a pro at cooking. It’s something I’m really working on and trying to improve. I love trying new recipes especially quick and easy ones. I found this buffalo chicken wreath on Pinterest that I decided to try. Instead of baking it in a wreath I put 2 crescent rolls together (in a rectangle) and folded it over instead. It turned out great! It was so quick and easy and it passed the hubby’s test as well. It would be really great for a party or shower food.

One night we really wanted to make homemade ice cream. We love to use our ice cream maker because it makes us feel extra domestic. So we gave this Wendy’s Frosty copy cat recipe a try! It was amazing! A big hit with both of us. Unfortunately I did not take any photos of it, but rest assured, it didn’t last until the next day. I definitely recommend it for a late summer night treat out on the porch with your family.
