Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Breasts

It’s official. I have an obsession with stuffed chicken. I’ve had much success lately in the kitchen with the concept of stuffed chicken, mainly with the help from SkinnyTaste.com. From chicken cordon bleu, to jalapeño stuffed chicken, there isn’t much that I don’t want to stuff inside a chicken breast these days. The other night…

Chobani Bite – I’ve Been Bitten!

Image Credit: Chobani Facebook Page If there is one thing I am a sucker for, and can truly not give up no matter how hard I try, is dessert. I don’t eat sweets with every meal, but dinner just doesn’t feel the same unless I can have something sweet and savory afterwards. This has become…


Girl, You Need Portion Control!

One of the most difficult things I’ve encountered in my weight loss evolution is just knowing when to stop eating.
