Mini Lemon Muffins and Turkey Chili today...

Hello Friends,

Well I feel like I was busy today but didn't get to do some of the stuff I wanted to. I intended on vacuuming and mopping but didn't.
I started my day with breakfast of course, and today I felt like Pancakes.
And of course I have some left over for tomorrow or the next day.
So I decided that my toaster oven is EVIL or possessed!! This is the back of my fore-arm and must be like the 20th time I have burned either my hands or arms on it. My stupid ET's.

I went to Chino Hills to run some errands this morning and by the time I got home it was 1pm and I was hungry. I put my stuff away, threw in a load of laundry then made lunch.
This was some left over chicken cut up, 1/2 avocado, 2 tiny tomatoes, goat cheese and mayo and a smart and delicious wheat tortilla w/cheese.

After I had a nice Video chat with my new friend Linda.

I would like to give a Warm WELCOME to all of our new BFC'rs. If you are new to the BFC there is a list of other BFC blogs below too. Support is a big key to your success.

So lately I have been wanting to make another batch of those delicious Lemon Cookies. Today while I was out I stopped into Cost Plus-World Market I picked up some new Decaf Tea that looked good.
I bought this Mini cupcake pan and made the lemon cookies and added 1 extra egg and made them into mini cupcakes. The batch made 23.

 I made some frosting to put on top out of Cream cheese, vanilla extract, and stevia drops. I added a couple drops at a time and kept tasting until it was just right. I used 1/3 pkg of cream cheese and about 7 drops of stevia.
I had to taste one right away of course to make sure it was good. LOL

Next was dinner. I made a batch of turkey chili.

 I used 2.5 lbs of ground turkey, 1/4 of and onion cut up, garlic, 2 celery stalks cut up, 1/2 of a big zucchini, and the stuff you see in the picture above. Green chilies, great northern white beans, alfredo sauce and tomatoes.
It came out real good and there's lots left.  I only used 1 small can of each tomatoes and beans so there wouldn't be that much sugar or carbs.

Desert was 1 more mini muffin and some RediWhip in a bowl. I could have ate more of them but there is always tomorrow.

OK my tummy is very happy right now so I will say good night for now.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Those cookies look delicious! I'm going to be baking some treats tomorrow, maybe these....

    Thanks again for the chat!

  2. I have been eating a lot of pancakes lately. I make the cream cheese, egg, and protein powder kind. Very filling! I have that same mini cupcake pan - it makes the perfect two bite sized mini muffin.

  3. Novel idea ... never thought of making them in a muffin tin :)

  4. Soooo...how did the extra egg change the cookie recipe? Did you add anything else besides the extra egg??

    1. Nope just the 1 extra egg because I was making them into muffins so I wanted them to be more like a muffin and not like a cookie. They came out good.

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
