  1. I found your blog through Gina's and I am so glad I did! I've been doing WW for about 8 months now, and I've lost 34 pounds! I'm always looking for new recipes that are WW friendly, and so many of yours look yummy! I've printed off several already.

    I'm making these Squash Croquettes tomorrow for sure!
