Just a Few Reviews

I made some Weight Watchers recipes and bought a few new snacks, so I figured that I would review them.

The first recipe I tried was Mini Ice Cream Cakes from Hungry Girl. They were easy to make and worth  the three points. Perfect dessert for me bc I love cake, ice cream and whipped cream and it's completely satisfying!

The second recipe I tried was Watch Watchers Baked Ziti. I liked it but I didn't enjoy making it. Granted, I don't cook at all, so I'm not familiar with....well, cooking. Matt said that is was easy to do though and he does all our cooking in the house. It was good and I would probably make it again, but it wasn't amazing. It was 8 points a serving.

As for snacks, I tried five new items and they were all pretty good. My absolute favorite, no question, was Quaker Quakes Rice Snacks Cheddar Cheese. They are perfect for my Cheeto cravings! They are so light and fluffy and I found them to be very satisfying for a 3 points a serving. 

I tried it's sweeter sibling as well, in caramel corn. They were decent, but definitely not as good as the cheddar. A serving of this snack is 3 points as well.

I tried Weight Watchers Chocolate Chip cookies and they are 2 points per cookie. They were nice with my tea, but I think I'd prefer to splurge on a Chip Ahoy instead. They were kinda dry, but like I said they were good with my tea. 

I have been having these Weight Watcher Chocolate Creme Cakes after my lunch in place of about 20 pieces of mini candies. I was pleasantly surprised by this 2 point snack. It is moist and satisfies my sweet craving after lunch.  

Finally, while we were visiting Denise and Roy over the holidays, they pulled out these Trader Joe's Apple Snack Sticks. They have a nice flavor and are light and airy, but they aren't very filling for 3 points. 

All in all I liked everything pretty well, but my favorites were the Mini Ice Cream Cakes and the Quaker Quakes Rice Snacks Cheddar Cheese. 

Weigh in tomorrow! Wish me luck!
