Welcome to Men in Aprons
Greetings to all of you coming from Hungry Girl. I appreciate the time you have spent checking out my site, and I'm glad you all like the Ziploc Omelette Entry. Lisa has honored me with a link to MIA, and I'm glad she did as I wouldn't have found her wonderful site otherwise. Looks like she's been in business just about as long as I have with MIA.
I would like to take this quick opportunity to introduce myself and my site, Men in Aprons. My name is Adam Byrd, and I'm a 31 year old father of two from Austin, Texas. Men in Aprons has been around for 2 years now and is still going strong.
When I started this web site in the autumn of 2004, I originally intended it to be a place for men to go to find recipes and information. Soon, I found that women and men alike were visiting the site with equal interest in what I had to say. I am a big proponent of gender equality in the kitchen, but to spend my days on that soapbox would be a waste of bandwidth. I hope that through my example, men out there will break those gender stereotypes and get into the kitchen and do us proud. I do not think that male cooks should be reserved for television or cookbooks, nor do I believe that the only place a man should cook is in the backyard manning the grill.
I believe that food and cooking should not be for the uber-rich or the ultra pretentious. Food is for everyone.
While you're here, take some time to look around. I post recipes, pictures, tips, tricks, and my experiences on a regular basis. I have a running series called "A Treatise on Grilling" which you might find interesting and helpful. Being a big fan of grilling and barbequeing, I want to give it back to the world, and help my fellow man (and men) where it really matters: at the grill.
Stick around for another edition of What in the Heck?, my (semi) regular contest, where you can win free stuff by guessing what's in the picture I post. I've given away dozens of bottles of hot sauce, barbeque sauce, and soon to be seasoning blends.
