A true comfort food, this Tuscan-Style White Bean and Sausage Soup makes a delightful, cozy dinner on a cold winter’s day. I love how the flavors of this soup come together, and warm your home with the most amazing aromas. If I want to kick things up a notch, I’ll use spicy Italian sausage instead of the mild. It’s SO good!

If you are all turkey-ed out after the Thanksgiving Day feast, then today’s recipe is for you!

Pumpkin Alfredo

Pumpkin Alfredo Recipe – 7 Points

With the weather FINALLY starting to cool down, I’m in a constant state of comfort food craving. And a rich, creamy, fettuccini alfredo recipe was exactly what I wanted last week. Now, typically, I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin, or pumpkin flavored foods and drinks. But I had this one can of pure pumpkin on hand, and I wanted to find something to incorporate it in. Considered it’s loaded with vitamins and nutrients, I thought it might be a great way to give my fettuccini alfredo a healthy boost.

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wrap Bowls

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wrap Bowls – 5 Points

If you’ve ever had those adorable little Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, you know how tasty they are, but also how messy they can be to eat. They are meant to be an appetizer eaten with your hands, but every time I’ve ever had one, the juice ends up dripping down my chin and my hands. Not the most ladylike way to eat!

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes – 8 Points

As a kid, I grew up eating Sloppy Joe’s as a regular staple. It was an easy meal to cook, and pretty inexpensive to make, so we ate it a LOT. I do occasionally make Sloppy Joe’s for my kids, which they love, but I will still enjoy one myself every now and then. Not too long ago, I decided to try out a new concept I’d seen around a few times, by combining the ingredients of a Philly Cheesesteak in the form of a Sloppy Joe.

Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast – 3 Points

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve jumped aboard the avocado toast train. Yes, it’s a super trendy dish, and yes things that are super trendy tend to annoy me. But the thing is, I’ve been eating avocado toast for a long time now, way before it was a thing. The fact is, it’s delicious. DELICIOUS. And it’s packed full of fresh flavors and nutrition.

Crab Cake Waffles

Crab Cake Waffles Recipe – 1 Point

Lately, there’s been a serious waffled food trend happening on Instagram. Apparently, it’s pretty easy to cook a lot of different foods on a waffle iron! This is great because it allows your food to cook quicker and more evenly, and you use a lot less oil than you would if you pan fried the food.

Lazy Satay Chicken

Lazy Satay Chicken Recipe – 9 Smart Points

My kids have always loved Thai Chicken Satay (or “the yellow chicken on a stick”, as they refer to it). And who can blame them? Tender, juicy chicken marinated in a heavenly peanut sauce that is then grilled to perfection and served with extra sauce for dipping. It is divine!

Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry

Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry Recipe – 8 Smart Points

I can honestly never get enough of Chinese stir fry. I love it in all forms. But the restaurant version can be pretty high in Points.

Easy Chicken Fajita Skillet

Easy Chicken Fajita Skillet Recipe – 3 Smart Points

Who says you always have to eat fajitas in a flour tortilla? Yes, I know it is delicious. But having your fajita straight out of the skillet is a highly underestimated option. Not only are you saving calories, carbs, fat, and sugar grams, but you can really go crazy on the toppings without worrying about it dripping out all over you.
