Anyone who reads this blog with any regularity knows how much I love breakfasts. When it comes to food, the only thing I love more is taking a dish I wouldn't normally eat because of too much fat and too many calories and turn it into something that is both delicious and… 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.

Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
