Happy Wednesday a/k/a Hump Day friends! It seems most of the folks on my social media are also experiencing cold weather. My part of Texas is currently in the 20's at night. I am not a big cold weather fan, but I have to say that one of my favorite things when the weather is cold...and this goes back to me being a little girl...is a nice cup of hot chocolate. So, here is my dilemma, as many of you know, I don't eat much in the way of sugar substitutes. Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate packet is 4 SmartPoints per serving...whaa?? Yep, 4 SP per serving. I could have 4 and that would eat up my daily points on the MyWW Purple plan but would I really want to use ALL my SmartPoint allotment on hot chocolate? Um, let me think about it, no. So I have been on the hunt for something that would give me that hot chocolate fix without breaking my SmartPoint bank. I found this low carb hot chocolate recipe and thought it might work. Okay, first off, it helps to read all the directions a…

Happy Saturday friends! It's the most wonderful time of the year! Some fellow YouTubers have taken some time out of their schedules to share some cookies or other sweet treats together for you. When I got invited to this collaboration by Joan (Joan's Pointed Plate), I was not really sure what I wanted to make. Since I do not use some of the ingredients that others do, such as light butter, I decided I needed to find something that didn't have a lot of butter in it. So I did a search of Pinterest and found a TON of great recipes, but not all of them had been updated for the new plans. I choose a Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie as it really seemed like I had most of these ingredients on hand anyway. Here's my recipe, using my substitutions.
