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!!!

Lemony Cheesey Ramekins

I was in dire need of some Kitchen Therapy yesterday and I actually made 3 different things. I spent most of my day in the kitchen which, for me, is great! And I only used ingredients I had on-hand.  This is really easy to make.

Makes 8 (5 oz) Ramekins
1 Ramekin = 6 PointsPlus™

1 can (14 oz.) fat-free unsweetened condensed milk
1 (8 oz.) tub fat-free whipped topping
1 (8 oz.) package Neufchatel cream cheese (room temp)
1/3 cup lemon juice

In a mixing bowl, mix together the first 3 ingredients until well combined and smooth.
Add the lemon juice until well combined.

Pour into the ramekins and refrigerate for at least an hour.

MY SPIN: I would add the zest of a lemon to give this more color and a little more flavor. This can also be made using orange or lime juice (and don't forget the zest). If you don't want to put these in ramekins, you can put into a graham cracker pie crust but you'll have to figure out the PointsPlus™ value for that. If I was going to make this into a pie, I think I'd toast some flaked coconut for the top....more 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!
