Nancy is a fiend for fresh peaches. So, when we got our weekly email from the Urbana Market on the Square said that the first of the fresh peaches would be in last Saturday, she could hardly wait. I thought we were going to be camping out in the parking lot like teenagers trying to get Lady MORE

It's 9 p.m. and from his spot buried under the covers on the couch, my son Quinn calls out, "Is there anything for desert?" The standard response in our household is no. Nancy and I have both battled with weight and lost a combined 125 pounds and part of our success was due to the fact that… 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.
