  • "Talking" the Weight Off

    10/21/2014 12:35:27 PM, by CHALEYATWINS

    I'm definitely an emotional eater. When I'm happy I celebrate with food, when I'm sad I comfort myself with food, when I'm bored food cheers me up. I guess I had been having an "eerie" affair with food for the most part of my life-or used to. Being a Soul Food Chef didn't help (at all) either. Oh, ... Read more
