#LowFat Silky #Eggs #Dessert in under 15 minutes #Recipes

Low Fat Silky Eggs Dessert Recipe
Since I've started Nutrisystem, I've cut back on a lot. However, I was craving a particular dessert recently. One that my mom always makes for me when I'm home. However, I wanted to modify it to keep it low in calories and fat but still scrumptiously smooth and silky. Here is my brainchild. This can also be done in less than 15 minutes. I can guarantee that it'll be the smoothest, silkiest eggs you've ever had. It definitely is for me.

#Drunken #Salmon in 15 minutes #Recipe

Drunken Salmon Recipe
I recently did a #CBias shop and created a new recipe just for it and since there was so much interest in what my Drunken Salmon recipe was, I'm now posting it! It's another simple, easy recipe and can seriously be made from kitchen to the table in 15 minutes. So, if I can fit it into my busy lifestyle, I'm sure you can too. I can already hear the ewww, beer? Really? For some strange reason though, the beer taste disappears and it just becomes this amazingly tantalizing sauce. Hooked yet?

Simple Salsa #DeviledEggs with a Fiery Twist #Appetizer #Recipe, fresh from @LandOLakesKtchn #Eggs #MyBlogSpark

I love eggs and so does the SO. In fact, I always have to remind him about the maximum of 2 eggs per day because the moment I turn my back, he's grabbed himself a 3rd egg and is reaching for the 4th! I was sent this amazing pack from LAND O LAKES in celebration of spring and the numerous, easy recipes that use their Farm-Fresh All-Natural Eggs. This bite-sized egg dish I'm about to share is simple and a great way to serve your guests.

baby Pom
Woof! Woof! This is JR and baby Pom and we're hijacking mommy's blog for the day. Oops, there goes some drool on the keyboard. Baby Pom, keep watch at the door! Act cute if you have to, just make sure she doesn't notice! Anyways, mom has always been craving to go to blogger events like Blogher ever since the first time she heard about it. She very recently learnt of social media events for pet bloggers too. She looked really excited and wanted to go to but having never had gone to one, she really didn't know how she would do it. She gave us little glimpses because she knew we'd enjoy it too. However, she didn't notice but we were watching her type and read, like we always do, and it looks like a fun sort of place for us to go to. So, here we are, a little late to the party but still hoping to get the message across. "BarkWorld, BarkWorld, BarkWorld!"

Vet Depot

As much as I love giving my babies treats, I prefer them to be healthy treats. was able to help out with that. My JR has a knee problem despite her young age. The vet had said her knee cap occasionally pops out by itself causing her pain and giving her a limp. He had recommended glucosamine to help. However, I can't just get something for the JR but not baby Pom, right?
