Wedding Sign

My sister in law is getting married this summer. She told me that needed something to cover a random window at the wedding venue so we decided that I would make her a sign to cover it. She got her inspiration from here: 

 and Pinterest. 
Using a cardboard display board from Hobby Lobby, some cardstock and my Cricut.... THIS massive baby was born:

Hopefully, she will LOVE IT!

Weight Watchers Taco Casserole

Oh my goodness. I've never been one to look for Weight Watchers Recipes... honestly this is the first I have ever found and tried. Thanks again Pinterest!)

I did change things up just a little to make it easier:

What you need: 
1 large can of cooked chicken
1 TBSP Onion powder
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
8 oz taco sauce
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 cup fat free cottage cheese
1 cup low fat tortilla chips
1 cup low fat shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup salsa

Preheat oven to 400.

Drain chicken. Add chicken, onion powder,  bell pepper and taco seasoning mix to the skillet. Cook until peppers are tender and chicken shreds easily. Shred the chicken in the skillet. Add taco seasoning and stir together. Set aside. 

Combine the sour cream and cottage cheese. Set aside.

Place half of the broken chips in the bottom of a casserole dish. 

Add meat mixture to cover chips.

Add sour cream mixture to cover meat mixture.

Cover with the other half of the broken chips and shredded cheese.

Bake 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top with salsa.

This was soooo good! Even my picky girls ate it up!

Diet Dr. Pepper Cupcakes

Ummm yeah... you read that right! Diet Dr. Pepper Cupcakes were all the rage on back in the day. These are so moist, go yummy and so easy to make. Also, they are low fat because they do not have eggs or oil in them. The girls and I made some last week that I took to work to share.

Here's how to do it!

Put the box of cake mix in a bowl.

Pour in a can of diet soda

Mix and then lick the mixer AFTER

Bake as directed on box

Find the other kid to help decorate her six cupcakes. (after stealing 12 to smuggle to work)

And enjoy!
