That's not quite true, but it sort of feels that way. My blog post on cookbookmaven yesterday talk about how I've been a bottomless pit lately. TOM has come and gone, and yet it seems to want to linger in my appetite.

I couldn't go to my regular WW meeting today. I really, really, really hate missing my meetings, but they're still working away upstairs (btw, I have photos up on my cookbookmaven blog -- long, photo-intensive post tho).
I've been consideri... Read more
Yes, as I type, they are installing cabinets! Yeah! It will probably be another week before the counter tops are installed -- which means no toaster oven yet -- can't wait to use the darn thing, we've been here almost a year already and I've bee... Read more
Not actually in the kitchen yet, but they are now physically in our garage. Tomorrow they are supposed to install them. THEN they order the countertops (so that they actually fit the cabinets).
Exciting stuff! We've only been waiting on the... Read more
That's where I've been! Working on relaunching my food blog -- www.cookbookmaven.com . Won't bore you with the details of why it disappeared, just now it's back & I'm blogging daily (or trying to).

Sometimes they surprise you, they really do.
I try not to nag my husband about his eating habits. I absolutely know that nagging does no good. But I know that I still do it sometimes. Because I want him to feel better, but that really isn't... Read more
Why sould someone who is trying to lose weight keep sweets around when her achilles' heel is her sweet tooth?
There was a time I didn't. I bought into the fat free fad like most people, and my house was filled with rice cakes and fat free c... Read more
If you're an oatmeal cookie lover, you should definitely check out yesterday's blog. No, it's not a real cookie, but it tastes like one -- and it's nutritious!
But today we're talking about dessert hummus. Never heard of it? Neither had I, ... Read more
One problem about reading food blogs is that you come across stuff you want to try.right.now. Sometimes it's healthy; sometimes it ain't (thankfully I hang out on the healthier food blogs). And sometimes, I have to admit, it doesn't sound terrib... Read more
. . . I've decided to try out salads as a snack. I already know people who do this. Usually in the afternoon. But I'm contemplating it as a mid-morning snack. Mostly because I'm trying to get more "filling foods", as WW would call it, in earlier... Read more
Wait, did I really think that? Why yes, I did. If only the rest of the day had gone as well.
Basically I maintained this week (up a tiny bit, but while I pay attention to that, I never really consider that to be "up" -- could just be a heav... Read more
Even after a couple of years, it's hard. I hate the hungry days. You know them -- the normal things don't fill you up. You don't feel emotional, you're just HUNGRY with a capital H (obviously).
My hungry day troubleshooter:

I "stole" that from my buddy Besshalie's blog. What an insight, huh? So simple. So true.
While I had planned to get skating in one last time this week, it was just not meant to be. Monday was grocery shopping. Tuesday we had an unexpected m... Read more
Since I thought my last few blogs were kind of weighty (pun intended), I thought it was time for a little fun. Let's see if I can actually pull this off, it's all off the top of my head.
You might be a foodie if . . .
