Beauty & The Beast!
Da Big Guy!
About this Cook
I just had Gastric Bypass Surgery on April 17, 2012. I was 540 pounds before the surgery & currently I'm loosing about a pound a day! Feeling much better already! I'm now focusing on a High Protein/Sugar Free diet.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican (read as almost anything spicy)! I still make killer breakfasts for my family! I an avid crock pot cooker (I own two)! With our big family I've become a master at whipping out fast, nutritious, & delicious meals, CHEAP!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew on a big farm. We raised prime beef so growing up I got spoiled eating beef fixed in many different ways & I'm not just talking hamburger! My father passed away when I was in the fifth grade which meant my Mom had to go to work. I had two choices, either learn how to cook or starve! Not hard to figure out which one I chose!
My cooking triumphs
I started entering cooking competitions when I was around 14. Immediately (with my Mom's coaching) I started winning ribbons!
My cooking tragedies
I have never made a batch of fudge that wasn't runny! The last batch I made wouldn't even in the freezer overnight! I also had my first real kitchen (grease)fire back in January of 2012. I put the fire out OK but inhaled too much fire extinguisher & got a free ride to the hospital in an ambulance! OOPS! Note to self: next time turn the stove OFF before dealing with the kids! :-)~

Ice Cream Tiramisu Cake
This desert is awesome! It is not however for the timid! If you're a java junkie like me, welcome to heaven! Caution, do not eat this desert if you plan to sleep in the next 4-6 hours! It's not going to happen! One change I like to make is to not finely grind the espresso as suggested, but rather leave it chunky. You might also want to sprinkle a few espresso beans on top for the ultimate java junkie desert! Next time you go the the grocery store, check out all the new coffee/espresso ice creams & find which one you'd like best in this desert!

As far as the eggs go we just use two jumbo eggs laid fresh by our chickens which of course just makes it all that much better! :-D We also sub in Splenda to alleviate the guilt! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM! YUM!
