from Michelle
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup sugar, plus
1 tablespoon sugar
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin
3 eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Make the crust by combining the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and 1 T sugar in a medium bowl.
Stir well enough to coat all of the crumbs with the butter, but not so much as to turn the mixture into paste.
Keep it crumbly.
Put foil partway up the outside part of an 8-inch springform pan.
Press the crumbs onto the bottom and about two-thirds of the way up the sides of the springform pan.
You don't want the crust to form all of the way up the back of each slice of cheesecake.
Bake the crust for 5 minutes, then set aside until you are ready to fill it.
In a large mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, 1 C sugar, and vanilla.
Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add the pumpkin, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice and continue beating until smooth and creamy.
Pour the filling into the pan.
Bake for 60-70 minutes.
The top will turn a bit darker at this point.
Remove from the oven and allow the cheesecake to cool.
When the cheesecake has come to room temperature, put it into the refrigerator.
When the cheesecake has chilled, remove the pan sides and cut the cake into 8 equal pieces.
Serve with a generous portion of whipped cream on top.

  • 1 tsp cumin
  • kosher salt to taste
For the topping:
  • 14 tbsp reduced fat shredded cheese (I used Sargento Mexican)
  • nonstick spray (Smart Balance)
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • reduced fat sour cream or fat free Greek yogurt (optional, extra pts)
Pierce potato with a fork a few times all around. Place in microwave and cook on high about 5 minutes per potato. When finished, allow to cool enough to handle. Cut potatoes in half horizontally. Scoop out potatoes (save the extra potato you scoop out to make skinny garlic mashed potatoes the next day) leaving about 1/4 inch thick wall, skins will weigh about 1 oz each.
In a large skillet brown the turkey and season with salt. When the turkey is browned, add onion, garlic, black beans, cilantro, serrano pepper, diced tomatoes, and cumin. Mix well and simmer on low, covered for 20 minutes.
Remove lid, add corn and simmer an additional 5-10 minutes or until all the liquid reduces.

Heat oven to 450°. Lightly spray potato skins on both sides with oil and place a foil lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and bake skins for 10 minutes. 

Remove from the oven, add 1/4 cup meat filling into each potato skin, top with 1 tbsp shredded cheese and bake 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top with sour cream and scallions. Enjoy!!
