Born and raised on the outskirts of Toronto, Ontario, Amy fled the big city to settle down with the country boy of her dreams. When she's not furiously typing away at her computer, she's a mom to three wonderful children.
Life got in the way, and after the birth of her second child, she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a romance author.

I’m not original in the kitchen sadly. Words come easy, but recipes …I’d rather just follow instructions.
Right now I’m on Weight Watchers and I’ve completely fallen in love with Skinny Taste recipes. Everyone I’ve tried is seriously delicious and so easy to make. Also healthy and kid friendly.
She even lists points for Weight Watchers and has recipes that are Gluten Free or Paleo. Check her out.
Every day I’ve been trying to try a new Skinny Taste, so I made Sesame Honey Chicken in the Crock Pot. You can find the original recipe here:
It was very easy. I used 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts and they shredded so nicely. My husband actually thought it was pulled pork at first glance.
I don’t really eat a lot of pork because of digestive issues. Even with the gallbladder gone I still have my issues with pork.
I served this with rice and steamed broccoli and the kids gobbled it up.
Another site that is go to for me on Weight Watchers is Drizzle Me Skinny. It can be found here:
Drizzle specializes in a lot of baked goods that I thought were off limits when I started Weight Watchers, but Drizzle’s muffins are made with mashed bananas and applesauce with either no flour or small amount.
My favourite recipe, so far, is the Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread
So, that’s how I operate in the kitchen.
I will say since starting Weight Watchers in January my energy has increased, I don’t feel as sick and I actually don’t eat salad dressing anymore.
My favourite thing on a green salad now is a bit of salt and pepper and freshly squeezed lemon.
