I'm a standup comic in NYC and I cook to cope with the stress of a midlife career change to something with no path to stability. Let me just tell you, I cook a LOT. I'm writing these recipes down and sending them to my mailing list once a week. You can see the first recipe here, with more to come every week for at least the next three months.
A comic about food, government cheese, being a latchkey kid, being the child of a latchkey kid, and the power of kraft singles in your life
In which I cook and photograph my way through my recipe backlog, and test the limits of one tiny studio apartment kitchen. [more inside]
The secret is the nettles.
I wrote a cookbook! Only it's sort of an un-cookbook--a cookbook for those of us who hate cooking, those of us who have limitations that mean we can't stand in the kitchen for ages, and those of us who are tired and hungry and would, honestly, just like to go have a nap. Probably a lot of other people, too, as it turns out that we all have to eat. It's available on Gumroad as a PDF and ePub, and as a Kindle file on Amazon.

Our farmer friend culled his flock of chickens and we went out to help. I wrote up a description of how to turn a live chicken in to something resembling what you would pick up at the supermarket. Content warning: includes descriptions of killing and processing chickens. Photos are mostly gore-free but may not be appropriate for everyone.

Another bunch of videos from me. I like to cook, but not anything too complicated, so I started finding some recipes that only require 3 ingredients. Some are savory, some are sweet, none are especially complicated. < [more inside]

So, my friend and I, (both librarians and enthusiastic eaters) who did a previous food-related project, have a new one where we make things we've always wanted to eat from our favorite books. We are far from the first to have this idea, but we get kind of intense about it. [more inside]
Yet another food blog. But this time from someone who is obsessed with recreating and eating American-style food while in the UK.
I've finally released an iPhone app I've been working on for four years: The Fridge. It's made to help you remember about your perishable foods so they don't go to waste. It has some unique UI elements that (I hope) are interesting. And of course, it comes with a demo video, but not a usual one (absolutely no soft ukulele music). [more inside]
Most Recipes are Rated 4 or 5 Stars. This is my attempt for finding the Best of the Best. I have a large (~1 million recipes) database of recipes and ratings from popular recipe websites. Most recipes are rated a 4.5-5 on average, and most site encourage these high ratings. This makes it hard to distinguish between good and great recipes. I made a website that that takes the top 1% most highly rated recipes from each website in my database. [more inside]

An app that tells you what ingredients go well together
I am the latest in a long line of Kenwood Chef owners in my family. This is my blog about learning to live and cook with the Kenwood (and sometimes wondering what was my gran thinking?)
In 2007 I released a turn-key online farmers market system. This is a major enhancement to that system, but also is a stand-alone resource. Customer, growers, and market managers at the markets using my system can now build a collection of recipes for their market. It offers the usual things you'd find in an online cookbook, but what sets this apart is the default view is seasonal, and reflects what is on sale at the market at that moment. Ingredients are tagged to available products, so shoppers can see recipes while they're shopping and recipe browsers can buy ingredients while they're reading. It helps close the distance between market and kitchen that intimidates timid market shoppers. All of the recipes for all of the markets are aggregated into a master searchable recipe listing (and that master list is what i've linked to), so if you're not a patron of one of the markets, you can still access the recipes, see where they came from, and subscribe via RSS to get seasonal recipes from around the country all year long.

A collection of the top recipes based on user reviews. I wanted a recipe site where I knew everything on it would be tested and delicious, so I took less than 1% of the recipes from sites like epicurious, foodnetwork, etc and made them searchable by keyword and ingredient.
I'm trapped in the frozen North. I stay sane by obsessing over food.
A search engine and aggregator for all cooking related videos. All comments and feedback appreciated!
