Weight Watchers Cooking Along with Ana and Laura Grand Prize Win

My first contest/challenge Grand Prize Win! Yippee:)



Virtual Hugs Everyone!
 Welcome to another exciting and fun blog post about great recipes and dinner ideas. Exciting because the recipe that I'll be sharing with you today was the recipe that help me win the Grand Prize challenge contest at Crowdtap couple weeks ago. The Challenge was to create a 3 course meal inspired by Weight Watchers Cooking along with Ana and Laura. It was my first time joining in a cooking contest/challenge which really excite me in the first place. So, I made my version of delicious, fall, healthy meal recipe inspired by Cooking along with Ana and Laura the whole cooking experience was so awesome! I really enjoyed following the cooking instructions and double up the fun when my kids decide to helped. In less than 45 minutes I was able to create a delicious meal that my family enjoyed and loved! The Chocolate- Espresso Mouse is simply delicious-:)

My culinary creation includes:   
Pasta with Butternut Squash and Sage,  Spinach Salad with Pears and Raspberries,
Chocolate-Espresso Mousse
You can check the recipe of all three dishes HERE, But the Chocolate- Espresso Mouse recipe will be shared below. I think its going to be my favorite dessert from now on. (hahah I love chocolate! Do you?)


Ingredients:
2 tsp instant espresso
1 Tbsp hot water
1 package fat-free sugar-free instant chocolate pudding and pie filling mix (1.4oz)
1 1/2 cups fat free skim milk
1 1/2 cups fat free whipped topping, divided
16 chocolate wafers, lightly broken- (I used Oreo cookies on mine)

Directions:
  • In a small bowl, combine espresso and water until dissolved; let cool to room temperature.
  • In another bowl, whisk together pudding mix and skim milk until well-combined; whisk in espresso mixture and then fold in 1/2 cup whipped topping.  
  • Line up 4 glasses/ bowls and spoon spoonful pudding in each one; top each with teaspoons cookie pieces, spoonful pudding and 1 more teaspoon cookie pieces.
  • Garnish each with 1 tablespoon whipped topping before serving.
Note: Its super easy to make and its delicious! Have fun and be creative on presentation! I used Oreo cookies on mine but feel free to used chocolate wafers or your favorite chocolate cookie will do.:)


Couple days later - I got an email stating that I won the grand prize (check out the photo above). I'm super duper happy! It's my first time winning a contest like this, so the whole experience is unbelievable. ( I wish you can imagine me jumping round and round! hahahaa)
After I submitted my shipping information. I waited for like 8-10 days and Whola! I got my prize delivered in my front door sent through FedEx.The prize was packed nicely which is very impressive. I opened it carefully and slowly... and there it is.. the Swag Bag-  inside the bag is the Bite Into Life spoon and $50.00 amazon gift card. I'm really happy with the prize!


The Swag Bag is actually really cute! I really love the design, the materials and the color. It just so perfect! I actually used the Swag Bag the other day and I loved it! The BiteIntoLife spoon definitely put into used this holiday season and the Amazon gift card it will definitely come in handy this coming Christmas. I haven't decided on what to buy yet (hehehe)
I hope that this blog post inspire you in many ways. Don't forget that the key ingredient to a delicious meal is LOVE! (hahah corny no?) Anyways keep checking my blog for scrumptious recipes that will inspire you this holiday season. See you in few days! Stay warm and gorgeous. Don't forget to smile a lot!---:)
