Pineapple Bliss Cupcakes

I found this recipe for Pineapple Bliss Cupcakes last week and couldn't wait for a chance to try it out. The ingredients list is short and sweet: 

1 yellow cake mix
1 20 oz can of crushed pineapple

Click here for instructions.
We topped our pineapple cupcakes with simple cool whip, although the frosting recommended in the recipe looks wonderful!

The cupcakes are delicious. The only change I'll make next time is to try spraying my cupcake liners with baking spray. The cupcakes stuck to the liners, making them a bit difficult to remove. It didn't affect the taste however! Delish! 

Each cupcake (no topping) has 93.5 calories and less than 1 gram of fat. Can't beat that!

A Simple Lunch

Sometimes I'm less than inspired to make a good, hot lunch for my kids. Today is one of those days! I kept it simple & quick, but it's still healthy. If your kids like those refrigerated cracker & cheese packages (like Lunchables), then this should be a hit!

Sliced cheese
Whole wheat crackers
Low fat sliced ham
Baby carrots
Ranch dressing
(also, not pictured but I gave them a bowl of grapes, so we hit all 4 food groups with this one)
