This recipe is ubiquitous. (And, yes, I did use the word ubiquitous because I’ve been dying to use the word ubiquitous, thank you for noticing!) Even though that’s not quite the right word.

I heart Nachos! You will, too!

~~posted by Jen Yes, I eat nachos as a WLS post-op. They were a pre-op favorite and not something I wanted to give up in my post-op lifestyle. So, I had to find a way to make them work in my plan. I don’t eat them every day, but I do have them probably once a week. The first step …

White Russian Protein Shake

~~posted by Jen Back in my younger days, we used to go to the VFW on Saturday nights. Laugh all you want, but I grew up in a very small, very rural town in Southwest Georgia.

Pouch Party Pets: Cheesy Dog Treats

~~posted by Jen Let me start off by saying: No, we’re not giving up on making great “people food” for y’all.

Who could forget the puppy napping incident?  Well it occurred to me …

Jane’s Spicy Jalapeno Dip

~by Nikki I think (suspect?)…I’m not sure but…this little blog might be coming into its own. My evidence for such a statement? Well…first a few of our friends stepped in to help me when I couldn’t take pictures of my banana bon-bons. And lately, we’ve been hearing from you guys. A lot. AND WE LOVE IT!!! So last week, Jen …

Curried Lentils

~by Nikki Ok, so the weather has dipped into the 70’s…the 60’s even for a few days. Which, technically, is a sign of climate change which probably means we’re all doomed. But after a long, hot summer…forgive me environmentalists…I am glad for the cooler weather. It has me thinking about things I haven’t thought about since…March at least. Baking. And …

I know a lot of you don’t eat white starches like potatoes. I don’t for the most part. Every now and again I’ll have …
