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!!!

Strawberry Crustless Pie

It's Strawberry Festival time in my town! This year the berries are exceptionally sweet and juicy.......and you can stand in line for an eternity to get some of them. Today I got lucky and there was no wait! I bought a flat. For those who don't know, a flat is 8 quarts of berries! I'm here to tell you......that's ALOT of berries!!! This is just one really fun and yummy recipe I'm doing with these berries. Try it.....I'm sure you'll like it!

Makes 8 Servings
1 Serving = 1 PointsPlus™

4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and cut up
1 (1.34 oz.) box of fat-free/sugar-free vanilla instant pudding mix
1 (.6 oz.) box of sugar-free strawberry Jell-O
2 cups of water

Place strawberries in a 9-inch pie plate.

In a small saucepan, mix pudding and water; bring to almost boiling. Remove from heat and mix in the Jell-O crystals. Pour over the strawberries.

Chill at least one hour.

This can be served 'as is' or with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping.


If you decide you want to serve (or eat) bigger pieces, 6 servings is still only 1 PointsPlus™!!!

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. ***

Loving Life(time)!

  4. Hey Jim! That's awesome! I always say 'a recipe is just a suggestion'. Sometimes it's just fun to 'tweak' things!

  5. I came across this recipe today and loved it - I too tweaked it, used lime jello mix with cheesecake pudding mix - was a good combination -- thanks for this recipe

  6. wondering if i could change this up with orange slices and vanilla pudding/orange jello?

    1. I don't see why not! The combinations could be endless. A recipe is just a suggestion! If you do, please comment back and let me know how it was! Enjoy!!!
