Lately I have been getting more serious about my passion for cooking. I especially love to create desserts and other bakery favorites. There's nothing better than the smell of a hot loaf of bread fresh from the oven. As recently as 2 years ago I weighed in at about 285 lbs. Today I am down to a mere 160, and I did it simply with diet and exercise. My greatest challenge has been to make the foods I love, while not slipping back into my old habits. That's why I am dedicated to constantly finding and creating recipes low in fat and carbs.
