I still stand behind this method.
The key to a successful diet is finding something you’ll actually stick to. If you haven’t found that yet, Alton Brown’s four list approach may help.

One of my favorite desserts of all time ... sweet, crunchy, caramely, fruity and undeniably corny.

My 12 yr old son wanted to say you are the Leonardo Da Vinci of food. He said just as Leonardo applied science to art so you apply science to food.

There are over 7,000,000 recipes for banana bread on the interwebs. Most of them are insipid and mushy. Due to the inclusion of toasted oats, this one is definitely not.

Sure, it takes some effort and a good bit of time, but never fails to set Irish mouths a smiling.

Although bacon frying in a pan is iconic, there is a better way … much better.

Lacquered Bacon (it's like candy): http://bit.ly/ABLacqueredBacon
Although bacon frying in a pan is iconic, there is a better way … much better. SOFTWARE 1 pound thick-cut bacon 1 tablespoon black pepper, coarsely ground 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar, preferably muscovado or demerara 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more if you’re up to it) PROCEDURE 1. Set the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. 2. Lay the bacon in a single layer so that there’s little or no space between the pieces on a cooling rack set in ...

When poaching a single serving (a single egg or two eggs that you want to cook together), trade the wide pan for one that's narrower and deeper, such as a 2-quart saucier.

I've always been a fan of shepherd's pie. Are you?

Introduction
I just gave up the job of writing, directing, and hosting a food show called Good Eats on Food Network. I held this job for 13 years. Now I'm working on new stuff. Oh, and I host a program called Cutthroat Kitchen, also on Food Network.

Besides having earned a culinary degree from New England Culinary Institute, I have a Theater degree from the University of Georgia. 

My big break in the film business came when I landed the job of cinematographer on an REM video called The One I Love. After that I directed TV commercials for nearly 10 years. I didn’t like it very much. 

Oh, and by the way...I like to cook. 

The first cook book I ever bought was The Frugal Gourmet. I still use it.

My favorite cook book is the 1962 edition of the Joy Of Cooking. (I like the lovingly illustrated instructions for skinning a squirrel).

I delivered pizzas in college.

I learned to cook to get dates. I wasn’t very successful.

My specialty is meat. My daughter calls me “the meat whisperer."

But when I get tired of cooking, I cook eggs.

I cook a lot of eggs.

I’m a pretty decent baker.

I prefer knives forged from Japanese steel...white or blue.

I have a weakness for American cast iron.

I cannot tolerate a unitasker, unless it’s a fire extinguisher.

Motto: That’s another show.
Bragging rights
I’ve written 7 books, the last of which will be released in Sept, 2011. It’s going to be quite heavy, so you know it’s quality stuff.
