The Age-old Question

Hello! Thank you for stopping by and checking out my ideas on what to make for dinner.  I started this blog for several reasons, the first being that I love to cook and have many answers to the question, "What's for Dinner?"

The second reason is that I understand the need that people have to cook a fast, yummy, and low-calorie meal for themselves and/or their families.  In today's world, everyone is in a rush, including myself.  As a means for self-preservation, I have learned how to get in, get out, and get the job done when it comes to cooking supper for my family.

The third reason is that I understand how important it is to many to cook healthfully.  One of the most important questions that I ask myself when I cook is, "Is it healthy; it is low-calorie?"  So, in many of my recipes, you will notice a few big differences than in many others.

The first is that you will never see the word "butter." I have found a way to substitute no-calorie cooking spray for almost everything.  The other foods that do require butter we either do not eat or use a butter substitute called "Promise" which you can find in any major food store.

The second is that there are hardly any carbs-foods like potatoes, pastas, bread- in the dinners that I make.  It's amazing how fast calories pile up when you add carbs to the mix...white flour is no good either.  If, however, you're just craving that pasta side or piece of garlic bread, try to substitute good carbs like whole wheat breads and pastas and sweet potatoes instead.

So, without further ado, let's go ahead and figure out what's for dinner.
