Sausage and Goat Cheese Strata   We're having one of those weeks. At the end of last week, Quinn was home sick for three days. By the weekend, Nancy and I both felt something coming on. By yesterday, we both knew we were getting sick and, today, we were both knocked down and out. 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.
