Couple cooking using a recipe on tablet

Act I: A flashback The year was 1996. We were two single friends with a bold idea for how to help people and find love. And let’s be honest, when we first whipped up the idea of real men from Oregon sharing their favorite recipes in our very own cookbook, the kitchen got a little heated up.

Yup..that’s us! Rockin’ that 90’s hair, too…

Back then, you didn’t write a blog, you wrote a book to share your passions with the world. And Good Cookin’ Bachelors was just that. A fresh idea for a cookbook showcasing not only recipes – but also tips on life, love and offering a real-life opportunity to stir up some kitchen chemistry with single men from around the state.

Officially a “vintage” cookbook! Concept combined dating and cooking.

Waaaay back BFF (Before Facebook Friends), connecting people via a printed cookbook meant exchanging real letters (gasp) and phone calls (on a land line)! We had a lot of fun with the project, tested some great recipes and enjoyed our own outreach project to eligible men in the Pacific Northwest. Our cookbook didn’t make the New York Times’ Bestseller list, but it taught us a lot about being creative and connecting people. We have fond memories of Good Cookin’ Bachelors and are excited to introduce you to Act II of our literary kitchen adventure.
