Update (4/3/2015):
Slowly migrating to www.coveredinbacon.com 
for now the page redirects to this site.  Going to change over to a more bacon-friendly theme, and redesign the site :)

I created this site as a personal record/reference of recipes I have made, because it got to be too much of a hassle to keep updating/organizing a recipe book. My recipes/images are free to use for non-profit, non-commercial purposes as long as credit is given to http://raptorshark.blogspot.com

My first recipe attempt was bread pudding, after eating it for the 1st time at Planet Hollywood. It turned out decent, I experimented with 2 versions and 2 sauces (rum, and vanilla) that I found on allrecipes.com. After that I fully immersed myself with slow cooker recipes. More recently I started obsessing over Kitchen Nightmares, which led me to watching the show "The F Word" and attempting to make the more gourmet style recipes that Gordon Ramsay demonstrates on the show.
Right now I'm trying to stray from the "bacon & cheese makes everything awesome" philosophy & progress into more hands-on type cooking, especially sauces.

My greatest compliment so far is being dubbed "the master of the potato" by friends that I cooked for.
