About Me

My photo
Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

At last! A place to keep all my recipes so everyone can have access to them without having to send me an email to get an old one. Some of them will have pictures.....some won't.....but if I make one again I'll be sure to put the pic with the recipe. OR.....if YOU make one that doesn't have a pic.....you can always email it to me and I'll add it.....and will pass along kudo's to you for doing that.

For anyone who doesn't know me.......what I do is go to different websites/emails/cookbooks/blogs.....any place I can find recipes......and if one sounds good, I'll tweak it and try it. If it's a baked/dessert recipe, I make them around my Weight Watchers meetings because my husband doesn't really eat sweets.....and if they're around, I'm eating them until gone!!! If it's 'real food'.....a meal type recipe, Abe & I try them, critique them and then I'll share the recipe.

There is no reason we can't enjoy great tasting food too!!!

Hope anyone looking at this finds a recipe or two or three they like. I have a few personal favorites......like the Carrot Cake......so if you make that please feel free to invite me over for a piece!

Eventually I want to put my 'informational emails' on here.....but not now. I'm ready to get away from the computer for a while!
