I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m already salivating at the thought of all the tasty foods at Super Bowl parties, and it’s not even Christmas yet!

One of my favorite, easy finger foods recipes that is delicious, but still low in Weight Watchers Points, are these low-calorie light beef sliders. By using half the amount of ground beef that I normally would and replacing it with fresh mushrooms, I’m still able to get a good, meaty flavor but with a lot less fat, calories and cholesterol. And they taste like they are 100% beef!

I got this idea one evening after savoring one of my absolute favorite Weight Watchers vegetarian recipes, my Vegetarian Philly Cheese Steak. The success of using mushrooms instead of steak in that sandwich was tremendously successful, so I decided to use a variation of that idea and use mushrooms in place of just some of the beef in these sliders. They were amazing. My husband couldn’t tell they weren’t all beef, and my kids gobbled them up.

At just 7 Points for 2 of these thick, cheese-covered sliders, including the bun, I’d say that’s a pretty fair bargain. These low-calorie sliders would make a great Super Bowl Recipe, a fun weeknight dinner idea, or savory finger food to serve at your next party.


Try this new bright and fresh spin on roasted potatoes – it’s a Parmesan Lemon Smashed Potatoes Recipe that is so delicious and yet so easy. Plus it looks incredible and would make a lovely addition to the holiday dinner table.

The energy of the lemon zest adds a beautiful and fragrant sunny taste to the potatoes, while the garlic and Parmesan accent the earthy flavors. This was truly delicious.

If you aren’t concerned about calories or Points, then I’d recommend doing a drizzle of olive oil, rather than a light mist when roasting. It really helps meld all the flavors together and adds some extra moisture to the potatoes.

Each large serving is only 5 Points, making this an excellent Weight Watchers Side Dish Recipe to pair with your favorite low calorie chicken or beef dish.


If nothing says “comfort food” to you like cheesy chicken rolled up in a flour tortilla and then smothered in a creamy sauce, topped with even more cheese, well then you are in for a treat today.

This White Chicken and Cheese Enchilada Casserole Recipe is nothing short of delicious. Packed with tons of fiber and protein, these almost burrito-sized enchiladas, are insanely filling. I ate one with some roasted veggies on the side and I was FULL.

These are really easy to make, and make a great large casserole recipe that can easily feed the whole family. They also make great leftovers and reheat pretty nicely.

Each White Chicken and Cheese Enchilada is just 6 Points per serving – definitely a bargain. They make the perfect Weight Watchers Recipe for when you are craving some serious Mexican comfort food.


I have always adored cauliflower, and have used it in a lot of great recipes. But some people find cauliflower a little bland. This Indian Spiced Roasted Cauliflower Recipe definitely kicks up the spice and flavor without adding many additional Weight Watchers Points.

To get the Points for this recipe, I tallied up all the nutritional stats of the ingredients. Some people might argue with that and only count the yogurt, since vegetables are 0 Points. Doing it that way would make it just 1 Point per serving. Doing it my way makes it 2 Points. The choice is yours, but definitely give this easy cauliflower recipe a try!

It’s so good and makes a delicious and healthy side dish! I made this dish with a mint chutney (which appears in my photo) but didn’t include that in the recipe because I thought it was gross. And I don’t like to post anything that I think doesn’t taste good. So there you have it.

Now get in the kitchen and make this tasty Indian Spiced Roasted Cauliflower Recipe, ASAP!

I’m just going to get right to the point here…this Stuffed Flank Steak Recipe was absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t believe it ended up being just 5 Points per serving!

The flank steak is butterflied to create a thinly sliced piece of meat that is then seasoned and filled with fat-free feta cheese, spinach, and red bell peppers. When the steak is cooked, these delicious flavors come together for one seriously amazing piece of meat.

My husband, the self-proclaimed Carnivore King, loved it and had no idea he was eating a relatively low-calorie steak recipe. Plus, it looks lovely on a plate and would make a great Weight Watchers Recipe to serve at your next dinner party.

I cooked my steak in the oven, but you could easily slice the stuffed steak into rounds and then grill, it instead. This Stuffed Flank Steak Recipe is a definite keeper.

Shake things up with this healthy and unique crock pot Indonesian chicken recipe made with coconut milk and savory spices. Each serving is just 6 Points and goes great over brown rice, quinoa, or pasta.

I love that this Weight Watchers chicken recipe offers so many nutrients and flavors and yet is still so easy. Perfect for a busy weeknight. I also made some roasted red peppers and zucchini with the Indonesian chicken, and it was a perfect complement.

For some extra Points, you could also add some potatoes to the crock pot.


I cannot even begin to express how amazingly good this Cilantro Lime Quinoa recipe is. I got the idea for it while eating some Cilantro Lime Rice from Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago.

So yummy, but definitely not Weight Watchers friendly.

So I made my own version using quinoa instead of rice, and I added more texture and flavor. I also toasted the quinoa beforehand, which I had seen done in another quinoa recipe, and in my opinion, this made all the difference.

This low-calorie side dish recipe is a much tastier and healthier alternative to Mexican rice, and each serving is just 3 Points. It goes great with your favorite Weight Watchers Mexican Recipes and is loaded with much more nutrition than rice.

I am in love with this Cilantro Lime Quinoa, and I have no doubt you will be too.


With a ton of extra radishes on hand last week, I debated on what to do with them. Since I was planning on making some homemade deli sandwiches later that weekend, I decided to try my hand at making some homemade spicy pickled radishes to go with them.

I am SO glad I did this! These spicy pickled radishes were AMAZING! And the best part was that the pickling was so easy.

This is a no-cook pickling recipe, so it literally took me all 5 minutes to prepare this. Then I just put the jar in the fridge and let the recipe work its magic. So simple, yet so delicious.

The red coloring of the skin does dissolve in the vinegar creating a pink brine, so just be aware of that when you make them. It’s totally normal and expected.

I wanted mine spicy, so I used some sliced jalapenos in my brine, but if you want a more mild version, try using celery or bell peppers instead. Or get creative and add in any kind of peppers you want! Next time, I may add some dill or bay leaves too. But for my heat-loving appetite, my spicy pickled radishes recipe was perfect as is.

I could seriously NOT stop eating them. I’ve already gone through two jars! I may need an intervention soon. If you like all things pickled, this low-calorie recipe is a must!

A mild, yet flavorful tilapia recipe, these smothered tilapia fillets recipe is the perfect quick and easy weeknight dinner recipe idea. It’s a dish that’s packed with protein and has just 5 Points per serving.

Not a bad bargain for beautiful, flaky white fish covered in creamy cheese sauce and spinach. And the carrots give this dish a lovely color and crunch too.

It’s a wonderfully healthy fish recipe that the whole family will enjoy and offers a great way to get in protein and nutrients without sacrificing taste.

Most acorn squash recipes I’ve tried are sweet and simple, with a basic flavor palette. But I was determined to come up with something a bit more unique, with bold flavors.

So with some acorn squash that I just received in my most recent Farm Fresh to You package, I got to work coming up with a tangy and spicy topping for my roasted acorn squash wedges. And I hit the jackpot with a Chile Lime Vinaigrette that I was actually planning on using for my salad. Instead, I drizzled it over the roasted squash, and it was absolutely delicious.

The contrast of the sweet, delicate squash with the tangy citrus and spicy chile peppers was perfect. Both my husband and I devoured it. I used cayenne peppers in my vinaigrette because I like things very spicy, but just about any chile would work. If you prefer something more mild, I’d suggest seeded jalapenos, Anaheim peppers, or even red bell peppers.

This would make a perfectly healthy and unique Christmas side dish recipe!

With winter in full swing, I am making my favorite Weight Watchers crock pot recipes on a very frequent basis. They are easy, hearty, and oh so comforting on a chilly day.

Today, I’m sharing a Creamy Tarragon Chicken Recipe that was inspired by a Rachel Ray recipe, but made over to be lighter and more Weight Watchers friendly. It is absolutely amazing…so flavorful and rich, and the sauce is so creamy and velvety.

Each serving is just very low in fat and calories, which is hard to believe once you taste how good it is.

Since I rarely cook with tarragon, this dish was a real treat and had me wondering why I don’t cook with tarragon more often.

I used carrots in this dish, but feel free to use another vegetable if you prefer. Asparagus, broccoli and peas work really well with it.

I recommend serving this Creamy Tarragon Chicken over some buttered whole wheat noodles or buttered brown rice for a complete meal. Enjoy!

French Onion Soup has always been one of my favorite dishes…who doesn’t love the idea of toasted bread and gooey cheese, melted all over a hot and flavorful onion soup?

But the traditional French Onion Soup recipe is not low calorie or Weight Watchers friendly. I’ve tried a few pre-made, low calorie versions that I’ve found in grocery stores but the taste is either blah or the portion is super small. So I set out on a journey to make my own but also decided to make it as a casserole, just because I was hungry and wanted a meal that had some substance.

It was so easy to make and the finished product was delicious! All the flavors that I love but for fewer Points. And making it into a casserole was really easy. It just basically the soup with more onions and less broth. If you want to make this dish as a soup, just use more broth when making it. So simple, yet so perfect.

And each very large serving is just 5 Points. This low calorie French Onion Soup Casserole Recipe is perfect for warming up on a cold day.
