About this Cook
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.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread
2/06/10 OK I just got a Wolfgang Puck bread machine. I am attempting this recipe as per the suggestions and my manufacture order of ingredients I will be back in 3 hours to rate... OK so if you tuned in 3 hrs ago the recipe had 3 stars why because I couldn't give it 0 to keep the rating in limbo until the bead finished well needless to say my family..... LOVED IT!!! It came out perfect.I followed the suggestions and adjusted my flour, honey and salt I also used butter instead of oil. I used my Wolfgang bread maker and walla Homemade bread. I topped it with some melted honey butter and it will now become our new sandwich bread absolutely awesome

Salmon Cakes II
I have made this several times and have not changed the recipe at all. They are always a hit. This is the first time I served them on top of a fresh baby green salad. This is perfect for a light lunch or a great dinner. Nicely done. The only thing I say about any and all recipes is after you add the basic seasoning play around with different flavors. Excellent!!

Honeyed Pork Chops
Very, Very good. I did not change a think other than using boneless chops. If followed the recipe EXACTLY and they were very moist and very good. The sauce is amazing. I served with some a nice side of rice and veggies with a nice green salad. Very Good.
