Before I got married, rarely would I scour the cupboards looking for a treat unless it was my mom's almond roca. Jaynann loves to bake and that has become a bad combination for me in the past few years. I will admit that I used to eat a bunch of junk food and my grandmother would always deep fry whatever she was making; whether it was lumpia, hamburgers, or burritos we could count on it being deep fried in oil. So, if you add those bad habits to chocolate chip cookies, cakes, or any other chocolate treat you will get a 200 lb. Eric. Luckily, I have learned to control those habits and the weight has gone down a lot, but I still have a craving for a piece of chocolate after a meal.
As much as I love the baking and try to avoid it, Jay has become quite the baker. In fact, our kids have lucked out because they will always get a special cake for their birthday or a special treat from mom on a special occasion. Below are a few masterpieces Jay has put together. Please be aware that you could gain a few pounds just by looking at the pictures.
Jay made orange cream, vanilla cream and peanut butter cream
eggs for Easter. Everyone got one with their name on it.
