I‘m David Shaw, a web designer, cook, parent, blogger, skeptic, and atheist, in no particular order. I have a biology degree from MIT, and worked for the General Foods Corporation – experiences that occasionally get in the way of my attempts to cook more intuitively than scientifically.

I am married to She Who Must Be Obeyed, who is wholly responsible for my starting this blog (“You should write about all this crazy stuff you’re doing in our kitchen.”).

We live in an uneasy truce with He Who Will Not Be Ignored, whose willingness to try my weekly experiments is tempered by his need to apply buffalo wing sauce to everything on his plate.
