I am fat, and I love to cook. But believe it or not, I don’t cook because I’m fat. And I’m not fat because I cook.

I cook to center myself, to try something new, to feed my friends, and to nourish myself and my community. Eating and cooking have always been linked to celebration and creativity in my mind. My mom and brother always gave me jobs in the kitchen, and I have many memories of my mom creating amazing meals for big dinner parties.

I’ve created CHUBB Gourmet as a place to share the recipes I’ve tried, talk about food, and share my experiences about cooking and eating. This will be a place I celebrate food and nourishing myself in a way that is healthy for me. This will NOT be a blog about dieting or weightloss. Although I may post recipes that are low in fat, carbs or calories, they will NOT be labeled as such. And I’ll probably post some recipes that are very high in fat, carbs and calories. But I will not tell you.

What I WILL tell you is what I know about the ingredients I use, why I choose to make what I make, and what awesome characteristics the ingredients have. This might mean I go on and on about how awesome the produce from my CSA box is. Or how freaking delicious steel cut oats are. Or that quinoa is super badass because it’s a complete protein. Or that I LOVE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES AND AM IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT RECIPE.

Most of what I post will be vegetarian. Much of it will be vegan. All of it will be delicious.

    I have a pretty bad-ass recipe for chocolate chip cookies with walnuts. I will have to send that along to you!

    You have a great blog. And I feel like I was holding out on you when we talked on Skype. So now that I’ve read some of yours… this is mine http://gettingawaywithveganism.wordpress.com/ I haven’t updated it in over a year… Don’t judge me. I was finishing school.

    Anyhow, thanks for sharing this with me and the world!
