  1. Love combo of topping (for me minus the hot peppers,) used a yellow bell pepper I had. Pretty good wrapped in lettuce. Almost as good as a bun! and the calorie savings for something else make it worth it. Found a hot dog all beef uncured Garret Valley 80 calories each that are a great beef hot dog. Like turkey ones and veggies ones too of different brands. Impressed with Garret Valley brand I happened to find.


Even though I am still young (25) Life experince has aged me alot. I learned to cook at both of my grandmother's knees (One southern American, one southern Irish) when I was about five. By ten I started collecting cookbooks and experinmenting on my own. As a latch key kid I cooked for my four younger brothers and sisters. My mom ran a small deli before she died when I was 17 so alot of my recies debuted there. Now I run my own catering Buisness. I am married to a wnderful man for five years now. I am a six year old daughter, sons who are four and three. We are also raising my 14 year old sister and nine Year old stepsister and have a 16 year old foster daughter, all of which love cooking with me. I am writing a cookbook with the hopes that when I pass I can leave my recipes for them My cookbook collection has now reached over 1200. Thank you for trying and reviewing my recipes.. <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg">
