The cold weather has started here in Michigan and with the leaves falling off the trees and fall in full swing, I am dreaming of yummy comfort foods and fall dishes. There's one problem with that...I'm also trying to lose weight. Well, fortunately I know of a great website called Gina's Skinny Recipes ( that can help me out with my little dilemma. I'm talking about totally yummy food, without all the guilt. I have made several recipes from her website and my family has loved pretty much all of them (ok, there was this one soup I made that wasn't really a hit, but I think that's been the only thing). There are recipes for appetizers, salads, soups, casseroles, crock pot meals, sandwiches, burgers, desserts, beverages, etc. You are sure to find something you will love there. I did so great the last time I followed the Weight Watchers points plan and she even gives you the point value (both the old and new point values)for the different recipes! What more could you ask for?! Anyway, since I'm in the mood for some comfort foods and was looking on her website today and found some, I thought I would share a couple of them that you might like to try too! If you end up making them, let me know what you thought of them!

Baked Potato Soup

Sweet Potato Casserole

Pumpkin Swirl Cheescake Yogurt Cupcakes

These are just a few tempting recipes. There are soooo many more I want to try!

I have made her Sweet Potato Pie a couple times and it is an absolute favorite at our house. My husband goes totally crazy over it and all three of my boys love it too. I highly recommend it.

Disclosure: I have been in no way compensated for this post, I just really love her website and recipes and wanted to share them. Be sure to like her on facebook or subscribe to her emails. You'll be glad you did!
