Got rid of the ticker cuz my scale decided to flatter me unduly. I haven't re-gained, just got a better, honest, scale.

Just because you steam it, doesn't mean you can't add herbs and spices. (A gripe at those insipid restaurant "healthy choice" menu selections.)

(::ducks incoming lawyer jokes::) ........

well, not a joke really, but after living for years in Australia where lawyers were called solicitors (or barristers) I found it really amusing to come back to the United States and see door after door with "No Solicitors" posted on them.

Hello! Just joined the team yesterday...

Here's my info:

Name/Username- Lala/Dalai_lala

Married?- Yes

Kids?- Four cats, all spoiled

Job?- Yes, tech writer (I write software manuals)

Zodiac sign?- Taurus

Favorite color?- blue

Favorite "good" food?- fish (mahi, salmon, tilapia)

Favorite "bad" food?- cheeseburgers

Favorite Food to Cook? - jambalaya & enchiladas

Favorite beverage?- coffee, but also red wine

Favorite Restaurant?- everyday: Tijuana Flats; special occasion: Capital Grille

Favorite Store?- Amazon

Favorite Sports Team?- none

Favorite Time of day?- my 10 am morning walk

Favorite Holiday?- Thanksgiving

My favorite ethnic food is anything Asian - Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, and on and on. But I haven't got the hang of cooking any of it very well, except for a Thai red curry that I have had some mad success with.

I have had much more success with Tex-Mex; I do a darn good chili and chicken enchiladas. I haven't tried making my own tortillas yet, but that's coming the next time I make the enchiladas.

I can't say that I do great Italian, either, but only because I don't make my own sauce yet. But I make a great lasagna anyway! LOL

Nice to meet ya'll!

Fav. Color: Purple
Fav. "Good" food: I love roasted veggies (especially cauliflower), nonfat Greek yoghurt, popcorn, and peanut butter (not together!)
Fav. "Bad" Food: I try not to think of any of it as bad or forbidden, but I have a special weakness for fatty, salty things like roasted nuts and french fries/chips.

Fav. Time of Day: 7pm - just after dinner when I get to wind down a read a good book or watch a movie.

hello,

i've been lurking around here for a while, but i don't think i ever introduced myself. i live in michigan with my adorable but VERY picky husband. lol! he's a meat & starch kinda guy (doesn't have to be potatoes, pasta and rice are fine ;p). i, however, like all kinds of foods, and hardly ever eat them anymore because, if i don't cook for us, he'll just have pretzels and chocolate milk for dinner.

my main hopes from this community are to find a variety of healthy foods to eat, along with some healthy versions of some of my favorites, and all that are also easy enough for my mediocre cooking skills. ah, and for some reason, 90% of healthy foods seem to use peppers for flavor, but i don't like 'em. lol! i'm not always savvy enough to know what i can replace them with and still have a good dish.

Welcome DCjones! I had to chuckle about your favorite time. That will fit with your career as a chef. When you will get off work.

My name is Mariajose, from Costa Rica. I really love to cook and I enjoy our typical food so much. However, Costarican food is a little bit greasy, it's very easy to make it healthy. I'm 28 years old and married to Esteban, who also needs to lose weight.

Hi Christie

Right now I'm just looking for easy dinner recipes. My step-daughter and I will be 4 weeks in Florence and staying in a flat so I plan on making most of our meals, dinners especially. Lunches will be to go, mostly sandwiches I expect.

Hi! I'm new to the team and just joined SparkPeople 3 weeks ago. I love to cook and try new food. I tend to eat way to much of it but I'm working on that with the nutrition tracker. After checking out some of the recipes posted on this site this is definitely the team for me! I look forward to meeting you all.


Name/Username- Lori/oopsiedayz

Married?- Yes for a little over 6 years now.

Kids?- No

Job?- I'm a clinical Microbiologist for a hospital in Fort Worth, Texas.

Zodiac sign?- Sagittarius

Favorite color?- Blue or green, I have trouble deciding between the two whenever I'm asked this question.

Favorite "good" food?- Hummus

Favorite "bad" food?- Popcorn. I know popcorn is not necessarily a bad food. But in the quatities I used to eat it as well as how I made it, it sure wasn't good for me. emoticon

Favorite Food to Cook? - I really can't answer this. I love to cook period. And I love to cook anything new and different. I especially love to try food from different cultures and ethnic groups. I grew up on a bland meat and potato diet. And I avoid that like the plague.

Favorite beverage?- Dr. Pepper

Favorite Restaurant?- Chef Pointe Cafe. This is a 4 star restaurant in a gas station. No lie. It will actually be featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives this April 6th. Fabulous food!

Favorite Store?- Amazon.com

Favorite Sports Team?- Dallas Stars

Favorite Time of day?- About 7:30 am, when all the birds show up at our feeders for the morning.

Favorite Holiday?- Christmas.

Oooo - David, I forgot about Chocolat.... That IS a good one! And Womyn - I like the username - I had a friend who suggested women use the term "WOMB-an" to replace what many feminists see as the male-centric "wo-MAN". Hm. Not sure about that, but thought it clever.
