A couple of years ago I lost 50 pounds on the Weight Watchers flex plan. I try to maintain this weight loss. My love affair with food started when I was in grade school. While other kids wanted to stay home from school to watch cartoons, I would stay home to watch the Frugel Gourmet! Cooking has always been a passion for me and now that I have lost weight, I am making healthy cooking a passion and I am enjoying myself with the learning process.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook appetizers for parties. I am not a baker and usually not a big dessert cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I will never forget getting my first cookbook for Christmas. I still have it...Good Housekeeping's Illustrated Cookbook. I think I read every line of that thing when I was younger.
My cooking triumphs
I try so hard not to be intimidated with cooking. I was so afraid to cook a turkey because people were always telling me the nightmares they had with the bird. Well, it was super simple!
My cooking tragedies
Usually my tragedies occur when I am working too fast and not paying attention to recipe. I try very hard to read and reread the recipe.
