Confession…. I was on Pinterest again. Oops!

Its extremely addicting and there are so many great things out there that I would miss on a daily basis if I didn’t visit the site.

You will start to notice my recipes take a small change in a healthier direction.  I will also include Weight Watcher points to recipes that I feel have a healthy take on them.

Ok, back to me scooping on Pinterest.  I ran across a picture of this recipe from Dandy Dishes.   I made a few minor changes to the recipe like adding bacon.  It made Shaun more happy!  Look for the WW points at the bottom of this recipe.  ENJOY!!!
