I am a loving wife and mother and mom of 3 beautiful children ages 10, 18, & 21.
I have been on a journey since May 2007 to shed a lot of unwanted pounds and as of 11/07 I am nearly 40 pounds lighter.
I love to eat, LOL! But I had to learn to eat healthier most of the time so that I could keep my good health and be around for my grandchildren...when I get some, LOL!
I love to decorate and I love to travel.
My favorite things to cook
Tasty, healthy meals. I'm still learning how to do this and that's why I'm here today, (11/12/07), to hunt down some low fat soul food classics for this much healthier Thanksgiving!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Watching my grandmother mush her homemade dressing in her fingers, then sticking out one of the fingers covered with lots of dressing, saying, "Taste this...do I need more sage." Priceless!
My cooking triumphs
Fortunately, cooking is in my genes so just about everything I make taste great.
I am very good at making my pound cake. It's always a hit whereever I take it even just in my kitchen. I usually eat more of it than anyone. Thing is, I am not making it this year but I'm eager to find a new lower fat version for the holidays.
My cooking tragedies
Once I made a black bean chili that everyone hated. Since they didn't like it, I never even tried it. Many years ago and haven't ventured in that territory again, LOL!!!
