What's cooking in my kitchen?

Checking in on my vision for 2015, I'm reminded that I had a health goal that involved cooking. I've recently discovered that I have slightly elevated cholesterol and, honestly, it scared the crap out of me. I always thought I was so healthy. Well, except when I mainlined chocolate, baked goods and ice cream. But I thought I had the balance of it right. Clearly, I'm delusional about my habits.

So it was a good wake-up call when my doctor announced my results but told me that it wasn't serious enough to necessitate medication. She suggested I see dietitian, but actually my mom is a dietitian and has been teaching me about nutrition all my life. I know what the right thing is, I just don't always choose it.

Thus began my efforts to eat more healthfully.
