This approach may take a bit longer than those miracle diets, but it will actually work and help you develop healthy habits to keep the weight off, and even lose mor...

I am feeling so guilty for not logging on to Sparks like I used to daily. This is very slow going for me to heal and I am just wiped out. I am working on it! I will be back as soon as I am able to and I will get some new recipe cards out. Give me a holler if anyone wants a certain recipe card made.... I can at least gather what I need to be ready to create one when I get to that point. I hope everyone is well and happy! Till next time... you all take care of yourselves.

I did! I gobbled till I wobbled on Thanksgiving day. Not used to eating that way. It was not the amount I ate... it was that I prepared everything with full substitutes... full fat... no skimping there... etc. I did eat in moderation tho... had a taste of EVERYTHING.. some with a normal serving and some with just a taste. But that is more food at one sitting then I have been used to. SO... I gobbled till I wobbled. *sigh* I loved it tho! Good food.... Sun, 1 Dec 2013 00:07:31 EST HELP! Have 50 lbs of potatoes I need to use. Every year before Thanksgiving my son brings me a 50 pound box of huge, massive, over-sized Russet potatoes. His place of work receives (from a customer in Idaho) a semi trailer load of these to distribute to the employees. These potatoes are very fresh and so good! I plan to make a lot of batches of Marge's Potato Dumplings using fresh potatoes to freeze for later use, but I want other ideas as well. Almost desperate here for ideas... so please post some potato recipes here in response... o...

I loved to hear about my friends holiday.. whatever day it was. I loved hearing what their family did, the foods they ate, the people that were with them. Of course as I got older I learned that these things were their "traditions". I still love hearing what everyone's traditions are... so share with us what your Thanksgiving traditions are everyone. Here is mine.... <BR> <BR> I love cooking... so of course Thanksgiving is always celebrated in our home ins... Mon, 18 Nov 2013 04:24:05 EST product review and share/warning ok product try and disappointed,,, I love turkey pepperoni but haven't been able to find any at the local store,, today found Bridgford turkey pepperoni at my store,, got excited,, tried it today,, oh boy bad should have read the back better than I did,, I do not recommend it at all,,bought 2 packs,, will be taking one pack back,, I suggest not trying it unless you like very very salty mushy food Mon, 18 Nov 2013 01:43:07 EST Weekend almost here... YAY.... the weekend is almost here. Anyone have any fun plans? Give us a holler and tell us about them. <BR> <BR> For myself... no fun exciting plans to speak of... but I do need to tackle my craft room and sort out yarn (tons of yarn). Also need to find a project I had started and never finished... which is crazy cuz it was for crochet slouchy cap that takes about 2 hours to make. I never finished it. And while I am in there... I have to wind up a lot of DMC threads and put them away. ... Thu, 14 Nov 2013 02:27:44 EST I AM BACK!! Yikes... I been gone forever and I swear I was having Spark withdrawals.

Looking forward to getting to know each of you and learning how to do the digital recipe cards. This is such a great idea. I'm always looking for new recipes to try. I have two 3 ring binders with plastic sleeves that I keep my recipes in - one is healthy and the other is the high calorie stuff - shame on me!!! <BR> <BR> I'm a widow who is now owned by two rescued kitties. Adopted PolyDactyl about 11 years ago (she is about 12 1/2) and Daisy joined us in March (she's 13 and... Tue, 29 Oct 2013 20:43:20 EST Checking on everyone... Hi team...

Someone has to do the job. I cannot promise I will not cut up and misbehave while visiting the team! I can see getting banned from here. lol Just teasing you Jo! <BR> <BR> <em>36</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Sat, 26 Oct 2013 17:27:00 EST Team Update Information I sent a request to Coach Jen to have our team featured on the main Spark page in hopes of getting this team known on the Spark community. I hope it helps attract more people to our team. Everyone... please feel free to invite anyone you think might enjoy our team. <BR> I hope everyone is having a great weekend. <BR> <em>247</em> <BR> Jo Sat, 26 Oct 2013 15:10:31 EST Recipe up A new recipe is up,, I reprinted the recipe underneath the card because it just wouldn't cooperate with how it looked on the blog spot. Fri, 25 Oct 2013 11:40:02 EST Image Editing Programs In this topic I am listing a few image editing programs to use for making recipe cards. (the fun images and clip art and borders and such) as well as typing in the recipes. I have not used them myself as I have other image editing programs that I have used for about 17 years now. Mine are not free and they are very complex, therefore they are not on this list. I did research into the programs I chose for you.. and for several reasons they made it into the list. They are easy to use... and t... Thu, 24 Oct 2013 07:47:23 EST Recipe card up I posted a recipe I made last night.. very good but I will say, adjust the ingredients according to taste,, I will only do one lemon next time, and not put the other in with the food, or if I do, up the garlic to make garlic the dominant flavor (love garlic). Wed, 23 Oct 2013 11:05:41 EST Cute Card Jen Cute recipe card you posted... and perfect for the season. Thanks for sharing.... I already printed it out. WOOT! Wed, 23 Oct 2013 05:44:01 EST Help with Team Name I am still kicking around different names for the team. Not sure if I should leave it as it is... or find a different one that is more appealing. Not everyone is familiar with crafts.. or more to the point... digital crafts such as digital scrapbooking... which is really what we are doing when we create these cards on the computer. I want to portray what we do here.. which is share our cute and fun recipe cards that we create or have collected.. but I cannot come up with a name that really ... Wed, 23 Oct 2013 05:16:58 EST Check out I am new to Spark and so I really do not know how to add links to postings... and other details such as that. However... I wanted to get this information out to everyone. Sparks has a recipe site where you can find recipes and also create recipes and figure the Nutrition Facts on the recipes you create. You can also post your recipes there... however they are not on the cute cards like we create here on our team. Wonderful place to go all the same. Very useful tool. So... to get there.. I wil... Wed, 23 Oct 2013 05:06:34 EST Jen Jen... I am very happy you are thrilled! It was your posting to me regarding the recipe cards I shared that gave me the idea to start a team of sharing... so... really... this team is all because of you! I would love to see a lot of people share their own card creations... I LOVE collecting recipe cards. Huge welcome to our team! Wed, 23 Oct 2013 04:30:27 EST finally found my way here I like the new look of sparkpeople but man I am so lost, Being new, again, I was getting use to the old look again and 2 days later or so, they changed it on me. I am so excited to be here,,I am finally getting back into cooking and now I am addicted in finding recipes and making my own recipe collection. I hate spending money on recipe books just to find a few recipes (I am a fussy eater), this way I can gather a bunch of different ones and make my own =) Can't wait to see all the recipes ... Tue, 22 Oct 2013 17:32:08 EST New to team My name is Marge and I am from WI. I love to cook and I enjoy reading cookbooks like some people read novels. I am always looking for new healthy recipes to add to my collection. I am not sure how digital recipe cards are done. My computer skills aren't always the best, but I am willing to learn. I am on this Spark journey to lose weight , eat and cook healthy . <em>381</em> Mon, 21 Oct 2013 22:17:05 EST
