I am a foodie and self-taught cook. After years of experimenting in the kitchen and receiving rave reviews from family and friends, I decided to write a cookbook that you can find on Amazon.
After more than 30 years as an IT Executive, I decided to retire and start this food blog in 2015 as a way to share my favorite recipes with my family and friends.
While not all of the recipes on this site were created by me, all of the recipes on this site have been tested and approved by family, friends and of course yours truly. Unlike other recipe sites, I have made every single recipe published here.
Many of you ask where does the "Hot Rod" come into play? As a kid, I loved playing with cars, especially Hot Rods. Over the years it turned into an obsession and customized many vehicles. Which in turn earned me the nickname Hot Rod. So when I was looking for a clever name for this food blog I settled on Hot Rod's Recipes. So now you are in the know!
All of the photography you see on this site was taken by me or my spouse. We will never use photos from other sites! We've seen other sites "steal" our photos so if you happen to come across them, please let us know!
You got something you want to share with us? We would love to hear from you!
