Christine Cooks is Six years Old Today

Today is the seventh year that I have written this blog.

I welcome this result with mixed feelings.

As I enter my seventh year, I know I will focus on recipes that reflect my goals of eating foods that work for me to live a healthier life.

I will quote Michael Pollan from time to time.

And I'll try not to pontificate.

you are with me

Yes, there will be Splenda.

I won't give up some things.
