  1. Well, you two did it again! A great show. I am wondering though, where can I find that pizza recipe so I can get it written down correctly instead of stopping and restarting the show! And are they any more that you girls have put on past shows? I have just started watching and am hooked! I signed up for your link in my email.
    Keep up the great work ladies and behind the scene people !

    Missy – check out the Food and Stuff section for all of the recipes recommended (and some not recommended) by our freaks. Some great ideas there!

    I have personally made this deep dish quiche recipe twice, and this is now my preferred crust for everything savory. It really works! Thank you, David Schronce, and the other lady who posted it first at Before & After!

  3. I’m wanting to try a white pizza. diced chicken, dice ham, LF Alfredo sauce, mushrooms and cheese.

    Superb episode!

  5. WELL DONE ….

    You 3 are AWESOME!


  6. Excellent episode – as always. I made the pizza last night for my hubby’s birthday. We both loved it and lord it smelled so good while baking!! He wants to have it again – and he will, it’s called leftovers, haha.

  7. Awesome episode! Hooray for DS freaks too. Haha. =) You folks did a great job.

    That pizza looks amazing too. I think my non-WLS family will enjoy it also.

  8. Trust me Mandi, the normal stomach folks in the family will dig this one! I speak from experience.

  9. The only two surgery choices given to me were band and rny. I would have had DS if I thoght I could but I am happy with my results. I’m fighting to stay under 140 (size 4) and think I will need to accept that mid 140s is probably more realistic. It’s kind of strange because when I was over 300 my surgeon said a goal of 200 would be a realistic one.
