I thought that was the protocol for all new websites. Maybe it’s just
what you have to do when you are learning a computer language.
Anyway, my name is Robert and I decided to start this website as an
outlet for what I learn while spending time around food. I spend a
lot of time around food becuase I like to eat. But other than that,
food is a hobby that satiates me creatively and nutritionally.
I’m like many people searching the internet looking for advise on what
to cook tonight, I have an 8-5 job as a mechanical engineer, I live
on a budget, and I’m not a fan of bland or generally crappy food. I
do my best each night to eat something worthwhile. And by that I dont
mean something richly organic or nausiatingly healthy. I just like to
eat something that is worth my time and calories.
The training I have as a cook comes from my parents who are chemists,
reading books and articles, and lots ot practice. Sure I make my fair
share of mistakes. I have screwed up Saturday morning pancakes a time
or two. But learning from these mistakes has made me better.
Sometimes I classify myself as an “online chef”. That may be somewhat
conceeded, but probably more dorky. What I mean is, I find a lot of
the recipes I make online. And just like you, I put a lot of stock
into the user reviews. They provide so much insight and help give
warning to potential pitfalls. However, many times the reviews are
cliche and nondescript like:
“this is great, my family loved it!” or
“eck!!! stay away”
I want “BaconWrappedRob” to be a place where you can find
good, easy, budget friendly recipes as well as a place to learn more
about food and cooking. This site is intended to be helpful, fun, and
down to earth.
