Crab Dip

~~posted by Jen I have a deep and abiding love for dips of any kind. I’m not quite sure where that comes from, but it has certainly served me well during my WLS journey, especially early out.

The below recipe is a cross between a “happy accident” and “necessity is the mother of all invention.” Here’s what had happened: I live in Baltimore and it was decided (by God, Mother Nature, or whomever you personally hail to) that Baltimore should get a gabillionty seven inches of snow over the course of a week.

Lemon-Ginger Butternut Squash & Carrot Soup

Ok…so not the best word association. But “orange” ya glad I didn’t do that knock-knock joke? (chirp…chirp…) Ok…moving on… If you don’t like vegetables, quite frankly, I think you might be crazy. Ok, that’s mean. But seriously. Veggies have so much to offer in the way of flavor. And flavor is the one thing we THINK we lose in the …
