All Hail Brak!
About this Cook
I love cooking. I also like many other things in life so I have difficulty finding balance. I am also a big boy and trying to lose weight. I am on this site to overcome these struggles. I am looking for easy recipes with low calories.
My favorite things to cook
I prefer the Zone Diet with some TNT diet guidelines incorporated (when I lift weights.)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised by a bachelor so most my food was bland. I didn't start enjoying different flavors until later in my life.
My cooking triumphs
Living near the border, I am proud of my mixican food. I have a good taste for spice ;-)
My cooking tragedies
I know I had some... I can't remember right now.

Quick and Easy Stuffed Peppers
I needed to cook the peppers longer because they were too tough. I added some 93/7 lean ground turkey. Loved it! I can't wait for leftovers!

Spinach-Stuffed Flounder with Mushrooms and Feta
Yum Yum! I used frozen spinach and canned mushrooms... because I'm a busy man. I also used reduced fat Feta. I had difficulty finding fillets big enough to roll so some of them I kept open faced.

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers
Love these burgers! I try to stay in the food pyramid so I made patties at 4oz raw (12 servings.) I grilled them on my foreman griller and garnished with picante sauce. I had a large salad and grapes for dessert. Fabulous recipe. Easy and tasty!
