Tasty Tip Tuesday – Mother Rimmy’s List of Favorite Weight Watcher Recipe Blogs

When it comes to sticking with my healthy eating plan, cooking meals at home goes a very long way towards meeting my weight watching goals.

Don’t misunderstand, I love to eat out. I can order a calorie friendly plate and snitch a serving of fries off my husband’s plate any day of the week. After all, they serve too many fries for one person, right? But cooking at home will always save me a few hundred calories, so for the most part, I’d rather cook for myself.

When it comes to making my own meals, I have favorite Weight Watchers cooks bookmarked for quick reference. They always whip up something amazing, and they calculate the points and calories for me. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Let’s take a look at my list of go-to Weight Watcher cooks . . .

Happy Blogiversary, iApp Release and Over 900 Blog Posts

Of all the food blogging projects I’ve had the pleasure of spending time on, the release of Mother Rimmy’s Cooking Light Done Right iApp has provided the most entertainment.

Going back through the archives of this blog collecting recipes provided more than a few laughs.  I’m so glad to see that my picture taking skills have vastly improved, and while pictures aren’t the focus of this blog, they sure turn reading blog posts into a mouthwatering experience.

It was rewarding to look back over these past three years and see how much I’ve grown with the blog. I’ve learned more than I ever wanted to know about the technical aspects of maintaining it, and enjoyed countless hours developing recipes for readers. Not to mention calculating calories and Weight Watchers Points, and cleaning up less than stellar food photography.

Since February of 2009 I’ve published over 900 articles and recipes. This article for Vegan Pumpkin Scones was one of the very first. I sure didn’t have much to say in those days, did I? Now you can’t shut me up.

Anyway, all this is to say that tomorrow DigiGlyph is releasing a new version of my iApp. You’ll find readers favorite egg dishes, salad recipes, and meat entrees all available for a free download. Then if you like what you see, you can download two new cookbooks – Soups and Stews and Quick Fix Meals for folks on the go. So check it out and let me know what you think.

As I’ve heard said in the blogosphere, “Happy blogiversary to me,” and thank you from the bottom of my heart for spending your valuable time here at Mother Rimmy’s.
