About Me

Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Creamsicle & Lemony Parfaits

These 2 recipes are a tweak of the Faux Key-Lime Pie recipe sent out a while ago. This time I decided to put one in a little dessert dish and the other in a parfait glass....just for something different.  These are both so light and kind of fluffy-ish and so incredibly delicious and refreshing!!! I can see them being served as I'm showing below....or with a slice of lemon or orange.....or plain. You'll like them however you serve them. You could even put them in a pie plate like the Faux Key-Lime Pie.

CREAMSICLE   PARFAIT   &   LEMONY   PARFAIT
Each makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 3 PointsPlus™

First up: Creamsicle Parfait

1 package sugar-free orange jello
1/2 cup boiling water
1 (8 oz.) package fat-free cream cheese, softened
1 TBSP fresh orange juice
1 tsp grated orange peel
2 measuring cups (NOT 16 ounces) fat-free whipped topping

Dissolve jello in boiling water.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add jello until well combined.
Stir in orange juice and peel. Fold in whipped topping.
Pour into dessert/parfait glass and chill @ 3 hours.

Next up: Lemony Parfait
Use the same as above but substitute lemon for the orange! How easy is that!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
