Introduction I've been a television producer for twenty-five years, working on Hill Street Blues (won an Emmy), The Hitchhiker, Bakersfield P.D., Get A Life, EZ Streets, Stir Crazy, Twin Peaks (nominated for a second Emmy) and many others. I’ve co-written half a dozen pilot scripts and through the long hours and stress of dealing with production craziness--bad weather, out of control costs, needy actors, and distressed fellow writers--I cooked. Sometimes after a really difficult week, I’d cook all weekend. Eight, ten hours each day, I’d stand over the cutting board and stove, cooking. Cutting carrots calmed me down and gave me hope again. Other people in my profession took up gambling or drank or went crazy chasing women. Not me. I went home and cooked. In addition to writing for Men Who Like to Cook, I contribute to NY Times Diners Journal, One for the Table, TravelingMom, and Luxury Travel Magazine. Recently I have taken my passion for food on the road to write for Peter Greenberg and NYDailyNews Travel online. I'm very proud of my first eCookbook, "10 Delicious Holiday Recipes," available on Amazon. Blog copyright © 2007-2012
