Jen’s “Buffalo Wing” Cheese Ball

~~posted by Jen Dig in! Earlier this week Nik shared her scrumptious Buffalo Chicken Salad. I too, am a hardcore devotee of Shari’s original Buffalo Chicken dip.

Well, I thought I’d show you how I take our own advice! This recipe was originally posted by my friend Shari (who someday will have her own awesome website with …

Jen’s “Moroccan” Curried Cheese Log

Ready to slice! ~posted by Jen I was never much of a Curry fan, mainly because I don’t like spicy foods. In fact, I had never really given it an honest try until our Holiday Preview this past November. Nik made her Curried Cheeseball as one of the appetizer demos, and when the party ended there was a small bit …

Nik’s Snappy Spinach & Bacon Dip

~by Nikki  This year I actually made time to attend my support group’s annual Christmas party (not to be confused with the Bariatric Reunion that just occurred a few weeks ago). We’d all been invited to bring a WLS-friendly goodie to share. I offered to bring two. Damn over-achiever in me! (I’ll post the other side dish another day) Spinach …

Protein Curried Cheeseball

  This is my version of the very first cheeseball I ever tasted. Picture it. Nikki. 2008. Support group holiday party. They served this cheeseball and it was…sigh…it was love. Now at the time I was only 11 months post-op so I could only eat a bite (and then couldn’t eat anything else after that) but man, was it worth …

Leftovers Week: Jen’s Pumpkin Caramel Protein Smoothie

~~posted by Jen So y’all know I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately with the Yoplait Frozen Smoothies, but those things get expensive after awhile! The cheapest I’ve found them is $2.79 and the bag only makes 2 smoothies. They ARE delicious and easy, and I’ll still keep a couple bags on hand for “shake emergencies” when I’m in a hurry, …

Dessert Week Offering # 5: Nik’s “Portion Control” Cheesecakes

(Warning: this is a long post. Go get a cup of coffee or tea and come back…I’ll wait…) Cheesecake. It is a wonderful thing and I don’t think anybody…not one single person…should be deprived of it. But cheesecake is kind of hard to work into our daily plans, isn’t it? It’s richness makes it filling but, in and of itself, …
