With the Halloween candy temptation done, I’m back to losing weight again! Yay! For a while (like most of this past month), I didn’t gain any weight, but I didn’t lose any either. Then these past couple of weeks it finally started to come off again, whew. Thanks to all my supporters who kept...

Even if you avoid baking all year long, there's a very good chance the allure of the holidays will seduce you into having a go at a batch of cookies.

Well, as I had mentioned, this past week was going to be beyond chaotic. It was just that. The week got off to a lousy start, as I didn’t get up in time in order to get to the gym on Nov. 5, and it didn’t get any better as the week went on.   Between different sporting events (state playoff games...

As far as I'm concerned, the best holiday gift is one that's handmade and edible. And if you can make it in big batches on a budget — and have it be healthy — even better.

Wilson: 'Back in the day my lunch was a feast' Another week gone. The time is just flying. I've decided I'm not that crazy about exercise because it makes my whole body hurt. Bike riding is the only activity I've found that, for the most part, is painless. Riding my stationary bike at home is a...

Brussels sprouts can generate some pretty strong opinions. As with cilantro or goat cheese, you either love them or hate them.

Past week has been pretty good. We got a new machine at the gym. It’s called a Helix. I tried explaining it to someone in the locker room, and that person gave me that “she's a crazy lady” expression.   So, I’m going to spare you the details and put it in a nutshell without the visual of me...
