The hubbie and I are seeing a "health psychologist". He prescribed a "diet program" not a diet.
It is supposed to teach lifestyle lessons instead of "eat only cabbage for the rest of your life".
There are 12 weekly lessons and I started us out tonight.
Write down the…
I am 38 years old. I love looking at cookbooks and searching for new recipes to try. Luckily my husband likes more stuff than I do so I know if I would probably like it so will he. After his cancer diagnosis we are trying harder to make the things we eat a little better for us.
My favorite things to cook
My mothers veggie soup. I get requests for my lemon bars and macadamia nut cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my mother was alive we would come up with any reason whatsoever for a potluck.
My cooking triumphs
When I went to make my husband my mothers bread stuffing and he was EXTREMELY skeptical of it. I stuffed a 15lb turkey and filled a 6qt crockpot and there were no leftovers. Now we make a turkey so we can have stuffing.
My cooking tragedies
Hands down--EGGPLANT PARMESAN. The recipe called for the eggplant to be grilled on a standard grill pan until pliant. Seemed simple enough but we did not notice the smoke filling the kitchen,kitchen eating area,tv room and den(it is a very large open area). All of a sudden the fire alarm went off and the alarm company was calling to see what was going on. His quote to the operator "my girlfriend is just cooking." I could have just died--thankfully the fire trucks didn't come all the way to the house. What was really a bummer is the smell of grilled eggplant took forever to go away and the dish was definitly not to our taste. It's a couple years since I first found this site and the Eggplant Parmesan is still my biggest disaster....and one of our biggest laughs.
