Greetings!

fullsizeoutput_a2cMy name is Michael, and I work for a major regional food retailer; I also happen to have an obsession with food and cooking. It is pretty much all I do, or talk about, or think about.  Since I spend most of my time around food in one capacity or another, I thought it only fitting that I start a blog. I am always looking for my next great meal idea, so feel free to share. When I’m not working, I love to cook, write, and exercise. I also have an interest in photography, which is growing.

This blog will feature not only recipes, but also my struggle with weight; which is not something you hear about from many food bloggers.  Having been obese most of my life, it is a battle I fight daily; and yeah, it is a battle. Remember the potato chip jingle, can’t have just one; that is me in a nutshell. I can’t have just one cookie, because that leads to seventeen more; I’m not exaggerating.   One small piece of cake leads to me inhaling half the cake, or pie, or ice cream;  and it isn’t just sweets, I am that way with everything. I have no impulse control, so I just have to avoid the trigger and not have any at all.

I hope that you will enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it. I also hope you will try some of the recipes and let me know how they worked for you, changes you made, and any suggestions you might have. I know it is difficult to find time to cook when you have ten other things screaming for attention, but take my word that cooking can be an incredible stress reliever.  The joy that comes from taking a pile of raw food and turning it into something beautiful, delicious, and nutritious is immeasurable; the laundry can wait.

Anyway, the key here is to enjoy yourself!
