Herbed Pork Loin with Cranberry Compote Quinn and I tried to make this a good Mother's Day for Nancy. We started the day with gifts and a Crab and Asparagus Quiche served with a fresh fruit salad. The quiche was good, but still needs some tweaking. You'll see it soon though. MORE

Lightened Union Oyster House Clam Chowder I love a challenge and really thought clam chowder would be one. How can something so rich, creamy and delicious be made light and still retain a wonderful flavor? It turned out to be not as hard as I thought. I started with a recipe… 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.
