I joined Weight Watchers in August 2005 and have lost 130 pounds at the time of this little post here. I'm committed to healthy, low fat and calorie recipes to help me reach my final goal (another 35 or so pounds). The good news is I'm not afraid to tweak recipes a bit to make them more WW friendly and I'm loving all the fabulous ideas I'm finding here.
I live with a wonderful, darling man who is also a nasopharygneal cancer survivor. Because of the location of the tumor and subsequent radiation treatment, he has special dietary and dental needs that I have to take into account for each and every thing I prepare in our house. I love the challenge of finding him good things to eat that isn't just mush and baby food. It's not happened yet and it won't happen any time soon if I can help it.
My favorite things to cook
Good, low calorie and low fat meals that we can eat until we're full to bursting. I'd rather make ingredient changes to recipes and enjoy the foods we want to eat than eat traditional diet foods. That's totally blah and I refuse to go there.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big, super big meals on Sundays and holidays. It's hard to maintain that tradition when I'm cooking for only two but I do my best.
My cooking triumphs
I think practically everything I've cooked since joining WW is a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
A few seafood casseroles come to mind - lots of money spent for poor results.
