Less than a month until my first cruise!

One reason I started the weight loss support group at work was to help me lose 25 lbs by December 6 in time for my first Caribbean Cruise. I am a little of half way there. Got to work harder and smarter. I am eating healthier and paying more attention to buying fresh ingredients and reading labels. I keep track of my steps during each day with a watch that has an odometer on it. I have two dogs who need walking, so the steps add up. I tried a granola recipe today and it turned out quite good. Still on the look out for healthy recipes and new web sites that can help me and my support group reach our goal of weight loss and good health.

That's just great! You're an inspiration. You'll love cruising -- there's so much to do and see.

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially during the fall and winter when it is cool outside. I am always looking for scone recipes. I live in apple country so I also like apple recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My son, who loves to cook, and I like to cook Thanksgiving Dinner together. My son is always trying to invent something wild and crazy. His recipes are usually pretty tasty.
My cooking triumphs
Two of my recipes seem to be in demand where ever I take them. Corn Casserole and Sour Cream Apple Pie.
My cooking tragedies
Well, this may or may not be such a tragedy. I use to use Pillsbury pie crust dough for all my pies. . I know very lazy of me. However, in the last six months I have been very disappointed in the Pillsbury pie dough. I haven't been able to unroll it and end up re-rolling it. Doesn't save me any time, so I am back to making my own pie dough, using canola oil instead of Crisco. I am glad I switched.
