“I want to show the world how easy it is to cook and be healthier by doing it themselves.”
Dude, you have a fat neck.
My best friend told me one day I had a big fat neck. I told him he was full of shit and promptly discovered after I got off the scale I gained a ton of weight. I’ve been disgustingly skinny for 30+ years. How did this happen?
I was eating like shit.
My diet was terrible. Hamburger Helper, McDonalds, frozen meals in bags, pre-packaged crap, soda–this was what I knew. Cooking was for tv personalities & housewifes. I didn’t have time for that nonsense, or did I?
Cooking can be technical & geeky.
I am a computer guy by trade so I wanted a technical solution and not a silly fad diet. This is when I discovered Alton Brown and the tv show Good Eats. Alton taught me that cooking is a science and can be fun and easy.
That's why I started ColumbusCOOK.
Cool logo, where can I get one?
