cranberry balsamic chicken

Roasted Cranberry Balsamic Chicken Recipe – 5 Points

If you are all turkey-ed out after the Thanksgiving Day feast, then today’s recipe is for you! I put together this Roasted Cranberry Balsamic Chicken Recipe as a tasty and festive alternative to turkey for holiday dinners. Truthfully, I’m not a big fan of turkey. And neither is most of my family. But we serve it every year because…well…tradition.

Quinoa Pilaf

Quinoa Pilaf – 6 Points

This time of year, there are fresh cranberries readily available. This means that I get to start putting cranberries into 9/10ths of my recipes! This quinoa pilaf was the first one I wanted to try. I really like quinoa. It’s gluten free, it’s easy, delicious and a nutritious option. I like to cook up a batch of it in my rice cooker and then store it in the fridge to have it for quick lunches the rest of the week. It’s fabulous with an orange mint dressing and some diced chicken. Just toss, heat and eat. This quinoa pilaf is…

Baked Cranberry Meatballs 675x450 1

Cranberry Meatballs – 6 Points

These meatballs are definitely a family favorite. It might seem a little strange with the combination of cranberry and sauerkraut, but trust me, it’s a perfect combination once you get it cooked together. If you don’t care for sauerkraut, you can make this with just plain cabbage instead. I like to mix turkey and ground beef so my meatballs still have enough fat to stay together but they’re a little less greasy that way. I also have made the meatballs and sauce separately. I like to bake my meatballs on a rack so they’re able to drip the fat down…

Breakfast Muffins

Breakfast Muffins – 5 Points

I’m someone who isn’t a morning person. I love to eat and cook, but mornings are one of those times that if I’m not really inspired, breakfast is just a chore. Any time that I can find a delicious recipe for breakfast, I’m always excited. I love things that don’t require forethought and these muffins fit the bill. They are tender, moist and delicious. The whole cranberries add a wonderful tart flavor. If you’ve only got dried cranberries, use half of the amount, since dried cranberries add several points to each muffin. The sliced almonds add a little crunch and…

Turkey with Cranberry Sauce

Turkey with Cranberry Glaze – 3 Points

Who doesn’t love turkey and cranberries? This wonderful stir fry combines those two flavors with a little flair of Asian. The ginger adds a little spice and the light soy sauce provides a tasty dark and salty flavor. Regular, dark or all purpose soy sauce can be used (all purpose is the most common), but the flavor will be much darker and heavier. This turkey ends up tender and moist each time with the tart and delicious cranberries adding a wonderful color and flavor. It’s quick and easy, and so delicious, you’ll make it again and again.

Breakfast Risotto 1

Cranberry & Coconut Breakfast Risotto – 9 Points

I’m someone who loves rice and risotto is a wonderful way to prepare rice. The creamy rice is delicious as a side dish with sauteed mushrooms, onions and garlic. But it’s also wonderfully tasty when you use soy and coconut milk, add some fruit, cinnamon, and vanilla to make it for breakfast. This creamy and flavorful breakfast is simple and easy. You can put it in the crock-pot overnight, or just make it up ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator. It’s sure to be a meal that everyone will love.

asian cabbage and cranberry salad

Oriental Cabbage and Cranberry Salad Recipe – 2 Points

This basic Oriental Cabbage and Cranberry Salad Recipe tastes so amazing, it’s hard to believe that each serving is just 2 Points and that it’s so incredibly easy to make. It’s one of my go to salad recipes for when I need a quick prep side dish that doesn’t require a lot of chopping. I buy the cabbage already shredded in a package, so I just dice up some green onions, make the dressing, and let it sit in the fridge until dinner time.

kashi berry lemonade

Kashi Chewy Granola Bars with Chia – 3-4 Points

Another fantastic product from Kashi – their new granola bars with Chia! The chia adds a nice healthy dose of ALA omega-3, which is great for your cardiovascular health. And the two amazing flavors that are available (Berry Lemonade and Chocolate Almond & Sea Salt) are absolutely delicious. The lemony tang of the Berry Lemonade was a nice change of pace from most overly sweet granola bars.

cranberry salsa

Cranberry Salsa Recipe – 2 Points

I first came across this amazing Cranberry Salsa Recipe at Crafty’s Cafe. Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical at first. But since I adore salsa, I was eager to give it a try. Plus, I thought it would make a really unique Thanksgiving appetizer recipe or Christmas appetizer recipe that would still be Weight Watchers friendly.
