Some of what you’ll find…

Here’s the Skinny: USA only, during the pre-sale. The PDF is currently available instantly and internationally, as an instant download.

Any physical copy of Making Ends Meat ordered during the pre-sale will ship via USPS Media Mail, in roughly mid-September, 2022.

Historically, my pre-sales have taken between 6 to 10 weeks. However, my printer has suggested that with supply shortages, the new range is 12 to 16 weeks, suggesting the books will ship somewhere between mid-August and late September, 2022. Like you, I wish this were a faster process, but apparently material sourcing has become a pickle! They will ship, though, and they will be awesome!

Paperback Fine Print: Shipping and handling is $7.99. Sales Tax automatically applied for WA state.

An even deeper look…

Batch cooking: Get prep, meal components, and even full meals ready days, weeks, even months in advance. Then, spend mere minutes to grab from the stash and whip up a tasty meal for the home, even if it’s just you.

Far more than ‘just meat’: Because of the costs associated with meats, it’s a major focus, but the recipes run the gamut from baked goods and desserts to casseroles and chili. Many are intended for large batches, to be portioned and stored for a future date. Others are quick, simple sides and salads. Pull from the freezer, re-heat, toss a quick salad, and serve!

Beyond that, are a variety of base, prepared items such as breads, quick-bread mixes, sauces, dips, snacks, and more… all designed for a quick graze, or an incredible meal!

Building blocks: Making Ends Meat takes a building block approach to cooking. Start small and build your stash. This cookbook contains equal parts fantastic, flavorful, and full-meal recipes, along with a variety of base, household building-block foods, such as sandwich bread. Another recipe is for a quick tray of simple oven-roasted turkey thigh. Basic, yet flavorful. Perfect to build any number of meals from! Turkey sandwiches, turkey salad, turkey soup, the list goes on. Each of the basic building block recipes contains a variety of suggestions on ways to use them. One recipe can be used in hundreds of ways, opening the book up to a near endless variety of possibilities!

Save Time: It may take 30 minutes to throw together four portions of soup for dinner. However, it may only take 15 to 20 minutes longer to cook up enough soup for 40! That little bit of extra time will save precious hours in the weeks to come. The book focuses on a wide range of tips, tricks, and philosophies to help free you up for other pursuits.

Save Money: My goal when I wrote this book was to get the cost of a meal to less than $3.00, or to cut the food budget by half. I feel I’ve succeeded! Granted, much of this is up to you. A lot comes down to where you live or your original food budget. There are no lobster tails or truffle-stuffed foie-gras terrines, but what it lays out is (I’d argue) even more scrumtrulescent, and much kinder to your bank account!

True Story: I’ve taken my 20+ years of high-pressure, high-end restaurant experience and distilled down all the relevant tricks and techniques for the home cook. The best restaurant cooks prepare everything in advance, long before they do any of the real cooking.

The book was written from my own experience. It’s a sincere and heartfelt effort to help during these difficult times. It’s written with a lot of humor and whimsy, but it’s also very down-to-earth and informative.

Finally, please keep in mind that a purchase of the physical book includes an instant download of the full eBook. This way, you can get started, right away!

* Risk Free!   I have little doubt that the $24.95 you spend today won’t be earned back, in just one shopping trip. Once you’ve perused the eBook, if you disagree, just be sure to cancel your paperback book order before it ships (roughly mid-September, 2022) and you’ll get a quick refund. No questions asked.

A Bit More About Me

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to be a chef (19 year old baby, in the photo!). When the other little kids around me were asked what they wanted to be when they grew up, they gave the standard answers: “Policeman!” “Fireman!” “Astronaut!” Me? I said, “Chef!” Every holiday, instead of toys, I got cookbooks and kitchen utensils… and I loved it! At age fourteen, I landed my first job at one of the best restaurants in town. And I never looked back.

I went on to graduate from the Culinary Institute of America, and I’ve worked under some of the greatest chefs on the West Coast, including Wolfgang Puck, Tom Douglas, and David and Anne Gingrass. Over the years, I hosted a food-themed Internet radio show, worked as the Manager of Special Projects at, and owned my own catering business. Food is my passion, and I’ve infused my book with that passion, along with the knowledge I’ve gained over my many years working in the food industry.

You can have all this for LESS than the amount you might spend on a carb-filled dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant! Are you ready to make your health a priority? Are you ready to save both time and money? If so, Making Ends Meat is for you! Click a button below now to add it to your cart!

* Please quickly review your PDF prior to the books being shipped. You have full access to the book the instant you purchase. Quickly skim it to be sure it’s what you want. If you’re at all unsatisfied with the PDF, just shoot me an email and I’ll quickly refund you and cancel your shipment (if you ordered a physical book). No questions asked. If you did order a book, I ask you to please verify you actually like the content. I’m a tiny operation. Once the books ship, I am simply unable to accept returns.

Also note …
I have a very simple and basic order system. I’ve done my best to present all the products and options I feel people would want. However, if someone wants a combo, but they want it split between two people, there’s no way to do this. Just contact me with the form below and tell me what you’re looking to do. I’ll do what I can to help! For the most part, I’ll suggest you order the products seperately. After the orders are placed, I’ll offer a refund for the correctly reduced amount. Finally, note that during a sale, you cannot order a physical book without a PDF for a smaller fee. The book prices are already as low as they can go. The PDF is a bonus, to help pass the time while the books are being printed. In closing, bacon is life.
