Engineers as retail customers scares me.
That cheesecake recipe looks like I have to try it.
Try their http://www.cookingforengineers.com/recipe/268/Buffalo-Chicken-Chili Buffalo Chicken Chili. I cooked it for work and everyone loved it.

V960—when I started College–Electrical Engineering was pretty easy. At least it was basic stuff————now I don’t think I
could get past day one. Have trouble turning on the TV.
But cooking is different—-
Start with the basics and wing it—play it by ear (or rather by
taste buds. If we cooked by the book we would only need that one book. And forget your imagination, we don’t need no stinking imagination.
Cooking is a great Art…. The Varieties of recipe’s information in your Thread is nice. It is useful to Every one.
Keep on Sharing.
It is a very nice site, I like it.
great site, very well designed
On my library list for tomorrow’s excursion, caratzas. Maybe his book will be my birthday present from my brother if I like it. Since I am at the moment sans job, I’m trying to keep my book buying to a minimum.
If you haven’t already, check out the author Harold McGee.

Thank you so much for the site UncleVic. I do agree that cooking is a creative passion. There is the science though that tells you the what and why’s of what you can and can’t do. I liked his thorough (I thought) experiment on the beer can chicken. Just as I expected…A total waste of a poor beer that never did anything to anybody[:(]. His conclusion is honest enough to say the beer may make the difference though doubtful. I agree. Tequila and lime in the can however………[?] Never have tried doing beer can chicken before but since reading this I certainly will[;)][:D].
Well, how about me? I am an engineer turned accountant!!! But after a quick look at the site, I really liked it. But then Cookwise is one of my favorite books, Alton Brown is my favorite Food TV personality, America’s Test Kitchen is my favorite PBS show, and the 2 magazines that they publish are my favorites. I just love areas that tell me why recipes work as opposed to just giving me the recipes themselves.
Know how I could get a job in the field of recipe research anyone???
One thing that many friends notice about my recipe book is that salt is listed as NaCl, water is H2O and almost all the measurements are in the metric system.
My oldest daughter is just as anal retentive. She is going to the beach tommorrow and her bag was packed two days ago. My wife however still hasn’t unpacked her bag from LAST year.
Ahhhh, that explains allot of things V960! But your OK in my book! :~)
Good gosh between the military food thread and the cheap breakfasts one I’m about to get kicked off this site but engineers being given grief about cooking is just too much. I got my mechanical engineering degree thirty or so years ago. I am currently one of the worst engineers on the planet.
I make the joke (not so much a joke according to my wife of 25 years) that she knew she was marrying Mr. Right but she didn’t know my first name was "Always". Free body diagrams, printing everything (I can print faster than I can write cursive) and the mind numbing (to the English majors) planning are part of being an engineer.
Planting the garden each year drives my wife nuts. I can give you a diagram of the garden I planted thirty years ago…now that is slap stupid…but makes sense to an engineer.
shutter. . . cooking is an act of creativity and passion for me. Having worked with engineers for over 30 yrs., The phrase "cooking for engineers" just doesn’t seem right. . . although, some folks do cook like chemists.
Found this site a few minutes ago. I like the way they layout the recipe cards at the end.
