Skinny Funfetti Cake Cookies

It's a rainy Friday afternoon and there's a box of Funfetti cake mix staring at me from the pantry.  So, what's a girl to do?  Make skinny cake cookies!

Recipe from:  Eat Yourself Skinny!
1 (18.9 oz) box Funfetti cake mix
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt (I used Yoplait)
2 eggs

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.  In a medium bowl, combine funfetti cake mix, yogurt and 2 eggs and mix until all clumps are gone.
3.  Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet greased or covered in tinfoil and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are slightly browned on the bottoms.
4.  Enjoy!

**These were pretty darn tasty and they're not as fattening as regular cookies or even cake.  Let me know if you try this.

Honey Orange Pork Tenderloin

Recipe adapted from:  The Daily Dish 

- 1/3 cup orange marmalade
- 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1 lb. pork tenderloin
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- Optional: fresh orange zest, for topping

I did not follow the original method of cooking.  Instead, I mixed the sauces together and poured over the pork tenderloin in the crock pot.  I cooked it on low for about 8 hours.

***This pork tenderloin had a great flavor.  I loved the mix of oranges and honey.  I'd highly recommend this dish for your family!
