I am back on the Weight Watchers bandwagon because I have to do something – and the macro-whatsit thingy my personal trainer had me on sucked – and did basically nothing. Not a body builder, fella – not looking to get “swol” – already “swol”- and not in a good way. I had a recipe […]
I love recipes. I have a cookbook addiction and I probably get 6-7 cooking magazines every month. I love food, and I love great recipes.
