I always try to eat delicious food. Unfortunately I don't have that much money, so I have to cook a lot of it at home. But thats OK because I love cooking and I love eating at home with my wife. This is a website with my favorite recipes and a little bit of commentary.

Long time readers of the site have seen my recipe evolve over the years. I haven't made an update in some time and I've been making this same pizza for about three years with good results.

Lentil Soup

Here is a tasty version of lentil soup. Lentils cook up a lot quicker than beans. The trick with this soup is adding the veggies and spices right at the end just before serving. You want the aroma of the spices to still be very present.

Christmas Eve - Chili and Cinnamon Rolls

The chili/cinnamon roll combo started in the public schools in northwest Iowa. On Fridays you either got tacos with cinnamon rolls or chili with cinnamon rolls. The rolls were made right in the schools typically and were delicious. Add to the combo two other very positive things - it was Friday and it was the only day of the week where chocolate milk was served - and you've got very powerful comfort food.

My wife and I have had a tradition of chili and cinnamon rolls on Christmas Eve since we got married. Here is how I make the chili. The emphasis is on subtle flavors.

Merry Christmas!

Hello! Its been a long time since I've posted an update. I've been traveling around the world learning all sorts of new things and eating all sorts of weird foods. I've also transitioned from primarily written pieces to primarily video. I have a few to show now.

This first video is on how to make a Japanese dish called Jingisukan. It is a stir fry style dish but very different from the typical ones I get in rural Iowa. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
