Two-Bite Brownies

Festive for Canada Day and 4th of July celebrations - any summer party, really - small chocolate brownies iced, sprinkled with colored sugar, then placed onto skewers in a watermelon. Very fun! And how about a pumpkin for Halloween, with orange sprinkles, of course?! Did I mention that these brownie bites add up to only one Weight Watchers point, even with icing and nuts? Now that's a quick treat worth a celebration all its own, no watermelon required. This recipe is so quick and easy

Gingerbread Muffins

There's so much to love about these quick and easy muffins. That deep molasses sweetness, just like hot squares of fresh gingerbread. That they're low-fat and low-calorie (thanks to half the butter in typical muffin recipes) yet still keep a moist and delicate crumb. Plus, they're made in a flash with a few pantry ingredients. But most of all, they just taste good. What's NOT to love? ~ Skip Straight to the Recipe ~

My Perfect Sangria Made the List!Best Recipes of 2009
Sangria: Idea vs RealityIn my life, the idea of sangria has always outsold the reality. I idealized a tall glass of Spanish wine served cold and spicy on a steamy summer’s day. The sorry reality: a cloyingly sweet wine punch with so much alcohol that a glassful dropped me into a doozey of a dozey daze. Inst…
