Cook Time - 25 min
Total Time - 1 hr

Pumpkin Bread
2 cups canned pumpkin
3 eggs
1 egg whites
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 t baking soda
2 t pumpkin pie spice

Cream Cheese filling
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese (room temperature or softened slightly)
4 tbsp sugar
1 egg
2 tsp flour

Preheat oven to 350

Prepare one mini loaf pan (it should hold 8 loaves) or 2 9x5 loaf pans with nonstick spray

Bread Layers
In the bowl of your stand mixer or hand mixer combine pumpkin, eggs and egg white until smooth

In a separate medium bowl whisk together flour, sugars, baking soda & pumpkin pie spice

Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet mixing until just smooth, set aside

Cream Cheese Layer
In another bowl either for your stand mixer or hand mixer combine all ingredients until smooth

Bread Assembly
Pour or spoon half of the pumpkin bread mixture into the bottom of the mini loaf pan or the large loaf pan

Evenly divide the cream cheese mixture over the pumpkin bread mixture and smooth out using the back of a spoon

Pour the remaining pumpkin bread mixture over the cream cheese mixture, covering as much as you can

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean

Let cool for about 10-15 minutes and then remove from the pans

Each mini loaf is 9 WW+ points, so divide as needed based on how many slices you get from the loaf

    Ritz Cracker Chicken

    5-6 chicken breasts, cooked, seasoned and shredded
    1 sleeve Ritz Crackers, Crushed (Use hand, dont cruch too finely. You want some chunks )
    8 oz Sour Cream
    10 oz Can of Cream of Chicken Soup
    Baking Dish
    1 Stick of butter; melted.

    1. Cook and shred chicken. Then preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

    2. Mix the sour cream and can of cream of chicken soup in a seperate bowl.

    2. Crush the whole sleeve of Ritz crackers. Like I said you'll want chunks or half crackers on there. Some people do two packages for the crunchiness on top and bottom; if so go ahead and lay a thin layer on the bottom of your baking dish.

    3. Next add the shredded chicken. the chicken and sour/soup can be mixed together if you so chose.

    4. If not, then add the cour/soup mix on top of the chicken.

    5. Next add your ritz crackers on top of the chicken sour/soup.

    6. Then pour your melted butter on top of the ritz crackers.

    7. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 30-45 mins(ovens vary) should be golden brown, bubbly goodness.

    Let cool a bit, and serve over rice or alone with veggies! So good!

    This dish is sooo finger-lickin scrumptiously GOOD! Your fam is going to ask for it time and time again.

    Let me know how you like it!


    Cece's Omelet:

    So I have never really cooked an Omelet until yesterday. And I LOVE it!

    First I cut up my Turkey Bacon into sizes that I can easily eat and heated those up in skillet...(This morning I went a little smaller just because I wanted to taste it more throughout the omelet...Im rambling.)

    While the turkey bacon is cooking, I scrambeled my eggs and cut up 1/2 roma tomato.

    We use our chicken's eggs...yes if you didnt know we have a chicken farm! Well...It's Jeremy's but whats his is

    And these eggs are the BEST! Seriously if all you have ever eaten was store bought eggs, you are missing OUT! Even the organic ones do NOT compare!
    I add my scrambled eggs to the pan and let it heat up, then I add my tomato and turkey bacon and cheese.
    Then I fold it over and put it on a plate and add 2tbls of salsa!
    Sooo freaking good!
    Enjoy!  ~Cecelia
    OMG Chicken
     So this chicken recipe I found on Pinterest.
    What you need:
    1/2 Cup sour cream or greek yogurt. Ive only used the sour cream
    1/4 Cup Parmesean cheese. I used both shredded and crumbled(spaghetti kind)
    Italian bread crumbs
    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    preheat oven to 450 degrees
    In a bowl mix sour cream and cheese...
    Can spray non-stick on your pan if you'd like. I sometimes use this 11x9
    Spread your chicken on the bottom of the pan, sometimes i put some of the cream/cheese mix on the bottom to give the underside of the chicken flavor.

    Then cover each chicken with the cream/cheese mix
    So that it looks like so..

    Then sprinkle each chicken with Italian bread that it looks like so...
    Then pop it in the oven for about 45 mins to 1 hour. (Every oven varies)
    And I totally did not get a pic of the finished product...oops!
    I hope you  Enjoy! will. Jerms likes it. I make it like 4 times a week. 
    Turkey Spacghetti Mac
    I decided to make spaghetti mac because its easy and kind of quick and you always have left overs for a few days! Jackpot!! (I dont have to cook for at least 2 days!)
    What you need:
    Italian ground turkey
    Macaroni noodles
    Organic spaghetti sauce (I used an organic one, but forgot to take a pic)
    Shredded cheddar cheese
    spices (I used a dash of each: Cumin, Cayenne, Italian seasoning)
    Brown your Italian Ground Turkey
    Boil your noodles too!
    Add sauce to your meat while noodles are still boiling.
    Then combine noodles and meat/sauce.
    We like to add the cheese when the mac is on our plates. But add your shredded chesse and enjoy!!
