Chef Dan

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by our new food site.  First off,  I’m Chef Dan and being a fat kid means I have a love for good food.  Besides,  wouldn’t you trust a fat chef if you saw one in the kitchen?  I know I would!

I first really took up a love for food while I was a kid growing up helping my mother in the kitchen whenever she needed an extra set of hands because my dad is a cook-a-phobest.  I just made that up and I’m going to say that means my dad is afraid of cooking.  He ate the same breakfast for 50 years….2 slightly overcooked eggs, 4 of the most crispy, crunchiest pieces of bacon ever and,  of course,  his black,  black,  syrupy coffee.  I can still envision the smell of the house at 5 a.m. as he “slaved” over a hot stove.  Luckily for him, and me as well, he married the most brilliant German woman to ever grace a kitchen.  My mother.

After being spoiled for the first 18 years of life by good old fashioned home cooked meals,  I found myself living in Austin without the benefit of mom or her leftovers.  So what’s a boy to do other than spend all his money on restaurants and drive thru’s?  Learn to cook of course!  So after stealing a few of mom’s recipes and putting them to good use,  I started to play around on my own and discovered that I can cook too.

Now even if you think you can’t cook,  try these recipes out on your own and I guarantee that you will not only amaze yourself but maybe a special someone too.  So from our table to yours,  go with your gut, think on your stomach and fill your belly!!

    Mageirocophobia, believe it or not, means “Fear of Cooking”
