About this Cook
My name is Michael Rogers and I live in Rocklin, California. I have four children who are trying to eat us out of house and home. My recipes have to be very scalable to accommodate such large appetites. Plus, my wife runs a day care business and I have my own computer consulting company; so our time is limited. I love to cook but frequently lack the time for long preparations. Allrecipies has be a life saver for me on more than one occasion.
My favorite things to cook
Breads Meats Pasta / sauces Breakfast Dessert / cookies
My cooking tragedies
I once made croissants and forgot to add the yeast. The came out ok, but very, very small.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup
Liked this recipe a lot. Even my 3 year old liked it. I did cut down on the cumin (2 Tbsp.) and used an immersion blender to make it smoother. I also added a cup of sour cream with the corn. Then just a splash of fresh lime juice. Simply lovely. Reheats well too!

Emma's Belgian Waffles
Been trying out a lot of waffle recipes. This one wins. Only changed from self rising flour to regular flour with 1 1/2 Tbsp of baking powder. Came out great!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes
This was ok (and I love twice baked potatoes). I tried the recipe as is, but it needs a bit more kick to it. I'll try it once more but this time adding some chilies and Tabasco sauce to it.
