I had gastric bypass surgery 3 year ago. I have lost plenty of weight however, I had to learn to cook in order to maintain the weight. I have taken each recipe and adjusted it to make them lower in calories, and fat but not in taste.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking everything. Anything that is available I want to explore and cook it. Since I have taken this on I am enjoying it thoroughly.
My cooking triumphs
I have learned to subsitute for calories but not flavor. I use splenda (brown and white) to cutback on sugar. I also use 1/2 brown flour when appropriate. Each of the recipes I upload I have changed and altered for the better. I take pictures of each dish to assure what I think it shoud look like.
My cooking tragedies
To date I am still going strong. I have learned if I mess it up try it again. Although I made something with ginger the other day and the whole top came off. Now we cooks know there is no way around that so I just tossed it and began again.
