I have to send out a huge thank you to Hilah of Hilah Cooking for the inspiration of this dish. If you haven't seen Hilah's video blog, she is smart, funny, irreverent and offers wonderful, easy to follow cooking videos. It was her video on making spring rolls that led me to make my own. MORE

I came across this recipe in April issue of "bon appetit" and decided to take the plunge and make my first mole. The only thing I can say now is, why did I wait so long! The whole family loved the flavors of the meat and sauce. What's not to love when that flavor includes my three MORE

There are so many reasons to love breakfast food. High on the list is that it doesn't have to be served at breakfast time. Who among us hasn't gotten home late from work to find the family hungry and nothing particularly quick and easy at hand. Some scrambled eggs or pancakes are quick and MORE

We are working our way through the treasure of fresh produce we picked up at the Urbana Market on the Square over the weekend. The last of it was a bunch of small turnips. I've actually never had or prepared turnips before, but generally love root vegetables. In the end, I decided to combin MORE

Our local Urbana Market on the Square had some beautiful kale this last weekend and I snapped some of it up with no idea what I would do with it. As Nancy, Quinn and I left the market, we talked about our finds and what we would do with them. In addition to the kale, we had gotten turnips, MORE

I had planned to smoke pork spare ribs with apple wood from our trees from our property for Memorial Day. Mother Nature had something else in mind entirely. She suggested, via heavy rain and strong wind, that I cook inside. Time for Plan B. Plan B rigs start the same way as my grilled ribs… MORE

Sweet and Spicy K.C.-Style BBQ Sauce Grilling season is full on! I wonder though, about all those people out there who will spend hundreds of dollars on just the right grill, search for that perfect piece of meat, experiment with temperatures, smoke with a variety of woods, etc. And… MORE

Memorial Day: Remember, but have that BBQ! I spent four years as an active duty Marine. It was four years of extremes and intensity, of moments that I count as some of the best and worst in my life. This time of year, my email fills with forwards from well-meaning friends decrying the… MORE

Shrimp Taco with Avocado Salsa Verde I've written before about our Wednesday night smile meals and our attempt to introduce our son to eating fish. We've had no success and have decided to not push as hard for fear of turning him totally off something we hope he will some day come to… MORE

Chili-Garlic Stir Fry Stir fry is a fantastic weeknight dish. It's quick and easy to make with what you have available, can be wonderfully tasty, and using lots of veggies makes it both filling and nutritious. For me, I love coming up with different sauces to use with it. In… 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.
