Low Carb Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Cookies

Drew has been eating these double chocolate chunk Atkins cookies. He remains convinced that they are delicious. I firmly believe that these double chocolate chunk cookies taste like card board, and I'm pretty sure that I've never disliked a cookie before. Needless to say, I need to stop him from eating that gross card board crap.

Peanut Butter Cheerio Bars

Cheerio Bars are one of my favorite things to grab on my way out the door in the mornings. It's fast and easy, and if they contain peanut butter, they hold me over until I can get lunch. The cheerio bars from the store don't really hold me, though.

My mom makes her own peanut butter cheerios, and she was kind enough to pass the recipe on to me. :)

Faux Chicken Pot Pies

Mmmmm... Look at that. That is a faux chicken pot pie. What makes it faux? It's not in an actual pie crust, which you can probably see from the picture.

Drew loves chicken pot pies, and I had been wanting to try my hand at making them. With him on the low carb diet, though, he obviously cannot have a pie crust. So, this is what I made:

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

As promised, here is the recipe for the chicken fettuccine alfredo that Emily and I prepared.

Unfortunately, I am lacking a picture of the final product, as a boy being stupid caused me to forget. (Aren't boys always the problem? Let's just blame everything wrong in the world on boys, okay? Okay.)

Then, on top of that, my camera randomly deleted the chicken pictures!!! What in the world are we going to do with the stupid boys?

Dr. Pepper Cupcakes

Emily, one of my best friends, was celebrating another friend's birthday this week. Emily doesn't really cook or bake much, but she desperately wanted to prepare Dr. Pepper Cupcakes and Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo for her friend's birthday. I'm going to put this in two separate posts so that the cupcakes and the meal each have their own recipe, and since I'm waaaay more excited about the cupcakes, I'm going to show you them first.

Italian Beef with Alfredo

Look at this. You want it. Don't you?

If there is one thing my husband loves, it is alfredo sauce. If there is one thing I hate, it is the effects of alfredo sauce.

Imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this: a 160 calorie per serving alfredo sauce recipe.
