Watch My Weight Wednesday! Meet Ally!

Welcome to Watch My Weight Wednesday! 
Today I would like to introduce Ally from Sweet and Savory!  I absolutely love Ally's Blog!  She makes the most yummiest food and takes such lovely pictures of her recipes!  Today Ally has offered to share a few very yummy looking recipes!  Thank you Ally!


Hello to all of Angie's followers!

My name is Ally, and I also write a little known food blog entitled, Sweet & Savory (  As with Angie, it is a place I chronicle some of my daily eats, but mainly you see the recipes and dishes I make for my family on a daily basis.  I developed my blog late last year as a way to do something other than "being a stay at home mom".  I feel it is important to always have a hobby you enjoy doing, and since I love to bake and cook - a food blog it is!

Food has always been very important to me.  Once I got married, and now even more with our son, I feel it is important to feed them quality meals that are healthy, but don't get me wrong - a little indulgent too!

Now, I must say, I love going out to eat and visiting new restaurants, but with a one person income that just isn't feasible, nor always healthy, so we leave that to maybe once a month, and the rest is out of our own kitchen.

I am a strong believer in family meals, sitting down together, dishes made from scratch (or close to), farmer's markets, buying local, and pretty much all the other food revolutions you hear about today.  I do get asked often if I buy all organic, and the answer is no.  I buy it when I can afford it or when I feel it is a necessity - mainly for fruits, vegetables and some meats.  I always say, do what you can and don't feel guilty about it!

Below I have listed two of my simple go-to recipes.  These both go over well at our house, so I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Flourless Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c. peanut butter
1 egg
1 t. baking soda
3/4 c. brown or white sugar
1 c. chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together and form into balls.  On a greased cookie sheet bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees.  Do not overbake, they are best chewy!


Roasted Garlic Asparagus

1 bundle fresh asparagus
2 T. olive oil
2-3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 t. pepper

Wash and prep asparagus.  Drizzle with olive oil, toss and spread on baking sheet.  Sprinkle with pepper and garlic, toss again.  Roast at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

I hope you all have enjoyed getting to know "just a little" about me and my foodie loves.  If you'd like to read more about my life - my son, the husband, the crazy concoctions I sometimes come up with, all thrown together with a side of humor, stop on by!
