Taco Casserole

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. Versatile? Mmmm…not really. Ok, so let me just say what it is I’m trying to say. There are very few people who don’t like this recipe! New …

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 …

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 …

Jen’s Fauxtato Salad

Photo Credit: Jennifer Guest Stockinger for Bariatric Foodie When I think of barbecues (or “cookouts” as we call them in Baltimore), I think of grilled meat and great cold sides – chief among them, potato salad!

Low Country Boil, Shrimp Fritters, & Lemon Pesto Oh My!

~~posted by Jen So last night I got semi-ambitious and made Low Country Boil for our Friday night dinner. For those who’re asking “WTH is Low Country Boil?”, I’ll tell you!

Veggie Tales

~by Nikki Ok so I had all these veggies to use up. Long story short, I visited this grocery store called “Harvest Fair.” They had these packages of fresh veggies that I’m guessing were approaching their end (but weren’t quite there yet). I scored oodles of tomatoes, patty pan squash, eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash and onions for like $3 (and, …

It’s where we (meaning me and possibly Jen) will prepare your favorite holiday treats – weight loss surgery style! Let me ask you something.
