How you simplifying your summer?  It’s so hot here in Chicago, so the simpler dinner can be; the happier mom is.  Simply Potatoes does just that for dinner time.  First of all, there is the convenience.  There is no peeling, slicing, dicing or mashing potatoes.  Open the bag and that’s it.   They are better for you.  Their cut potatoes and steamables are all fat free, cholesterol free and 90 calories or less per serving.  Simply Potatoes has a ton of variety.  It is available in a number of mashed and cut varieties, delicious right out of the microwave, off the grill or added to your family’s favorite dish.

Whipped Cream Cheese Gets a Twist

Weight Watchers Cheese has recently added two delicious new varieties to its lineup of whipped cream cheeses: Chocolate and Chocolate Raspberry. The new whipped cream cheese flavors are perfect for putting to use in inventive yet simple recipes that push whipped cream cheese’s repertoire beyond the typical bagel. Now, Weight Watchers has made up a few recipes but I tried one of my own for this product.

I found my new favorite frosting. Ok, so maybe it’s not really frosting so much as it is a whipped chocolate cream cheese spread, however it makes the most amazing frosting!! Weight Watchers has come up with new reduced fat Whipped Chocolate and Whipped Chocolate Raspberry cream cheese spreads that are out of this world. Not only do they have 33% less fat than whipped cream cheese spreads, they are also only 60 calories per serving and have 2g of fiber per serving. When I first opened these spreads, I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with them, but after taste testing with a spoon I decided that if nothing else I would just eat it with a spoon!! That’s how delicious these cream cheese spreads are to eat! Alright, maybe that wasn’t the best decision on how to eat it, so I opted to try it as a frosting. I found a recipe for chocolate chip cookie cupcakes (they are amazing) that uses a cream cheese frosting. It is a match made in heaven!! I no longer need to make my own cream cheese frosting for anything-Weight Watchers Whipped Chocolate cream cheese spread is my new favorite. I can’t wait to try it on a chocolate chip bagel for breakfast or dip pretzels in it for a low fat snack!

Weight Watchers has done it again-another deliciously successful product!
