My Inspiration

My inspiration has come from the Food Network. We really enjoy watching Alton Brown's Good Eats. The scientific approach he takes and explains appeals to my engineering side. I also enjoy Paula Deen's shows, I like the way she makes cooking fun and an enjoyable adventure.

I have two Alton Brown books: Good Eats and I'm Just Here for More Food - baking. The second book is more of a chemistry book on how food + mixing + heat = baking. I purchased the Good Eats book with some of my birthday money in October so I could plan on what to cook when our kitchen remodel was completed.
I also have several Paula Deen magazines specifically on cookies and desserts as well as her The Dean Family Cookbook that I received from my wife for Christmas. I have prepared meals from all these sources over the last few months.

My wife is just fine with me performing all the cooking. We have an arrangement, I cook, she cleans up the dishes.

These cookbooks as well as a few others in our library including the ubiquitous Betty Crocker Cookbook make up our cooking library. I augment this with specific recipes that I print from the internet typically found at

Dinner tonight is BBQ steak with potato and veggies.
