My weight has dropped a little bit, which means my bloating/pms issues are finally over. Thank god. Ugh. Anywho, I wanted to share a few simple recipes I came across and LOVE. I have one healthy dinner, one semi-healthy side, and a not very healthy desert. However, I'm not going to post the desert unless someone actually requests it. I don't want to hinder anyone's summer weight loss.
I made these a few days ago, and I love them, and I've actually been eating small slices of the Peanut Butter Cup/Chocolate cheesecake. Day 3, and between two people we still have about 2/3rds of the pie left. :)
