Most food bloggers are not only information providers, most of us are huge consumers. Like everyone, I have  blogs I absolutely love to read. One of those is Drick's Rambling Cafe. Drick writes about great southern recipes from around Mobile Bay, including Gulf Coast seafood, Creole, C MORE

Regular readers of this blog know that I like to talk about both new foods we try and our long-time favorites. High on Nancy's list of perfect foods are fresh summer peaches. For the past few weeks, they have filled the farmer's markets and Nancy has been bringing home bags and MORE

I love Mexican food, but, between deep-fat frying and lots of cheese, lightening up some my favorites can be a challenge. Chimichangas was definitely one of them. Traditionally, this dish is made of meat and cheese-filled tortillas fried to a crispy brown. My version uses chicken breast, l MORE

I used to hate mac and cheese. You know, the stuff that comes in a box, the one that so many of my friends lived on in college. I thought the box would taste better. Just as in college,I was a minority in our household, Quinn and Nancy love mac and cheese. So, when we decided to live a MORE

Things around our house have been pretty hectic lately, so I was looking for something quick and relatively easy for a weeknight meal. This dish is pretty down-and dirty, but at the same time, it had a wonderful rich flavor, was very filling and much lower in fat and calories than a traditiona MORE

Just because the word "salad" is in the description of a dish does not make it healthy or lower in calories. Taco salads are a perfect example. Between high-fat grades of ground beef, a deep-fat-fried shell, piles of cheese and dressing, you can get more than a full-days worth of c MORE

A quick personal note to start, thanks to everyone who has offered there support to us following my son's motorcycle accident. The bone breaks were pretty bad, he'll be spending the next three months on crutches, but he is on the mend. We're all starting to get back into our routines and MORE

I've recently started putting together my own spice mixes to have on hand. Most store-bought spice mixes are heavy on salt. When I make my own, I can not only control how much salt I add, but adjust them to my own taste. My first seasoning mix was my All-Around Spice Rub. I originally put MORE

We all have high and low points in our lives. But, never in my life have I had desperate lows and incredible highs so close together. Regular followers of this blog know that I try to post three to five times a week. I had planned to follow that routine on our vacation. I had saved a number MORE

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
