Me

Hello and Welcome

I am the mastermind of Nosh My Way.

Over the years, since starting this blog, this page has evolved.  Just like a bottle of wine, it gets better with age.

Who is this person behind this blog?

HISTORY:  I am a first generation native San Franciscan.  My parents immigrated from the beautiful Mediterranean island of Malta.  I grew up in San Francisco with an older sister and a younger brother.

Our kitchen table is where we shared stories, laughed, passed bread and wine around the table and all talked over one another, just to be heard.

My mother always cooked healthy foods that were traditional Maltese cooking.  Olive oil and a typical Mediterranean menu, which later became all the rage in restaurants.

I enjoy my family, an occasional glass of champagne, and being spoiled by my hubby.  I am passionate about food, and creating healthy and tasty meals.

I decided to start this food blog after I became a Lifetime Weight Watcher member (now back in training).  I knew the best way to stay at goal weight was to really start cooking the right way in the kitchen and of course, track my food using the Weight Watchers Points Plus (PP) program.  I am still a member and trying to get back to goal weight. (A never-ending battle)

I was inspired to share my kitchen creations that I make for me or my family and share them as a resource for everyone.  I invite you to try the recipes and let me know what you think.

DISCLAIMER

I would like to add the disclaimer that these are my personal thoughts, opinions and views.  I am not a physician, dietitian, nor an expert in any of these fields.  I am not a professional chef and am not responsible for any errors in my PP calculation. Also, PP can fluctuate depending on the brands you use.  I am not endorsed by Weight Watchers nor is this blog affiliated with Weight Watchers.

Thank you so much for visiting.

    • Thanks Teri. It’s people like you that keep me inspired. I actually stopped cooking on a regular basis for that last 10 years. Long story, but I’m back and this time trying to stay healthy. It’s been great to reconnect with everyone from FB. Hope to see you soon.

    • Thank Cindy. I am glad you are enjoying it. That’s what keeps me motivated. Let me know which recipes you make and how they turned out. Say hello to mom for me.

  6. Hi Marlene,
    Your blog is great, and professionally done. I really enjoyed it.
    Your Weight Watcher buddy,
    Dennis

  7. Hi Marlene! Thanks for giving me your card, your site will be really helpful to me when I start my new diet this week (gotta make up for the blogger fest, right?)! I hope we can be blogger buddies in the future 😉

  8. Hi Marlene, I just read the comment over at FB. I cannot believe they told you that! Anyhow, I wanted
    to introduce myself. I am also a food blogger in the Bay Area. Is there an email address I can reach
    out too? Thanks – Denise

  9. Heard you on Half size me, your recipes sound great and I was excited to hear you are a native
    San Franciscan also. I was born and raised there and my son is a 6th generation on my husbands side.
    I grew up in the Mission and love the sites, smells, and tastes of the city (which helped start my love for
    eating). It is true that you leave your heart in San Francisco, we moved to NC 10 years ago and i still
    miss it daily. Looking forward to trying some recipes from one cook to another. Keep up the great work.

    • Thank you so much Cathy. Yes SF is a wonderful city. I live in the suburbs now though. I am working on my new short term goals. I know I will succeed. Thanks for stopping by and especially for listening to the podcast.

  10. You have a great blog and I love this recipe! I made it using rolled oats instead of steel cut.(Do you spose that changes WW Points?) They are wonderful and yes, I think they freeze well too. I so agree they are very addicting. I hope to share this recipe at my blog in the next few weeks…sharing a link back to here. I’m going on vacation soon, but will try to let you know when the post is ‘live’. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes.

    • Marsha I don’t think rolled oat are going to be different PP value, but since rolled oats are larger than steel cut, volume wise it can be different. One ounce of steel cut and one ounce of rolled oats is 3 PP. 1/4 cup Steel cut oats is 4PP. 1/4 cup rolled oats is 2 PP. Thanks for wanting to share my recipe via your blog. I can’t wait to read it.

I love hearing from my readers!
