I’m Kevin and welcome to Kevin Is Cooking!
A little about Kevin is Cooking
Whether in the kitchen or on the grill, you’ll find quick mid-week meals, comfort food goodness and tasty desserts. I’m passionate to make delicious meals that are sometimes health conscious and sometimes indulgent—because life’s too short to be bland!
Inspired by an international pantry and family, I share my spin on classics and comfort food while occasionally sharing a behind‑the‑scenes view of what it’s like to cook for two people with different dietary needs – one a “big, bold flavors” kind of guy with a sweet tooth (that would be me), and the other a “big, bold flavors Type II diabetic” (that would be my partner Dave).
I was bitten by the cooking bug as a teenager, and went on to work in restaurants and catering. Life intervened, but I never really stepped away from the stove. Now I live the cooking life every day, inspired by my international pantry and by the ongoing effort to put a spin on a classic recipe and give inspiration to help you get that meal on the table. Thrown in the mix are recipes to make health a priority when indulgence calls. Sometimes I cave in to my sweet tooth and share with neighbors and friends. In the end, my story is about one couple’s efforts to eat together despite their different diets.
I realized over time that the readers of Kevin Is Cooking love to cook big and bold— nothing bland ever leaves your kitchens! But you also recognize the benefits of a health-focused approach, often inspired by someone in the family who needs to eat better (like Dave, who is a type 2 diabetic). You want delicious, health conscious and sometimes indulgent, and you want to eat together. Because I believe food is “family glue.”
I hope you take a look around and enjoy the goods I cook, bake and grill up. All the best and don’t forget to lick the spoon!
