I made this recipe a LONG time ago, and thought I’d posted about it. If I had more pictures, I apologize but I can’t find them. For some reason I’ve had a strange craving for soup this past week. This makes no sense because it’s literally 110 degrees here. But nonetheless, I wanted beef and barley and couldn’t find the recipe on my site. And I think it was good enough to make sure it secures a spot in infamy. This recipe is a nice twist on hamburger vegetable soup. It’s loaded with vegetables, and the barley gives it an interesting texture. It’s a nice change of pace, and freezes very well. All for under 300 calories per bowl. BOOM!



I’ve hit a lull lately in the recipes I make. I seem to be falling into a routine, reusing the same recipes over and over. For those who don’t know, I’m a big fan of freezing my own meals. I use them all the time for lunches, and even occasionally for dinner. I LOVE it. I can be in the kitchen cooking for a day or a few evenings, then have lunches to last me months. But like I said, I’ve been having trouble lately finding something new. And healthy. Then I ran across a recipe for butternut squash enchiladas. They sounded good but I figured they’d be better kept for fall. And searched for sweet potato enchiladas instead. After several tweaks to make the recipe a little more figure-friendly, I think I’ve come up with a winner!

This looks like something straight out of an unhealthy Mexican restaurant, right? Well, it tastes more sinful than it is.


I’ll be the first to admit, the title of this recipe is deceptive. And makes me want cake. But so far I haven’t been able to come up with a better definition. Egg Muffins makes me think of something with an English muffin. So we’ll stick with cupcakes… For now. As we all know, I don’t commit permanently to anything.
