Who’s Hungry? (Cookbook)
by Bart Smith
Hey, who’s hungry? I LOVE FOOD, can you tell? I love it so much I found myself making quite a few dishes, cookies and a party smoothie so often, that when I shared them with others, their response was always the same: “Amazing, so delish, orgasmic, out of this world …” Based on those reactions, I just knew these meals of mine would be “world famous” after you introduce your taste buds to them, right?

MEET YOUR CHEF (AUTHOR)
For someone who never saw himself writing books, let alone a cookbook, all I can say is, “Who knew and who’s hungry?” Honestly, cooking for me started in college when I discovered the 3-cheese diet, which consisted of grilled cheese sandwiches, scrambled eggs ‘n’ cheese, and macaroni ‘n’ cheese, just wasn’t cutting it for me. So, I called Mom and asked, “Could you please send me the recipe for lasagna?” I’m serious. I remember it like it was yesterday. I even experimented with making pepperoni lasagna. OMG! It turned out amazing! That’s when I knew I was hooked on this cooking thing.
From there, I experimented by cooking Asian food in the wok, pasta dishes, and other meals my freshman year at college. THEN IT HIT ME! I was living far away from home and I could have anything I wanted for dinner! Mom wasn’t around to prepare meals so, I ventured, “SPOIL YOURSELF! I want cookies for dinner!” I hopped in the car, hit the store and bought the ingredients to make chocolate chip cookies hot out of the oven. Returning to my apartment, I whipped ‘em up and voila! I then plopped down on the couch with my (dinner)… a bowl of chocolate chip cookies. I couldn’t have been happier. I called Mom soon after to tell her, “I ruined my appetite for dinner, Mom. I made chocolate chip cookies and ate them all for dinner.” I laughed and she, well, you can imagine her response!
From that point (1988), my chocolate chip cookie baking career began. I started making them for my girlfriend, track teammates, friends, teachers, etc. When I left college, I would bake cookies for a variety of different pot luck (lunch/dinner) events at the many different companies I worked for. People were reaching for my chocolate chip cookies before they’d reach for a chicken thigh out of the KFC bucket! I started noticing everyone was having the same reaction, “OMG these are good, Bart!” I’d reply, “Hey, I just bake them the way I want them to taste FOR ME! Welcome to my world!”
Aside from my love for baking the world’s best chocolate chip cookies, I just enjoy eating good food. Having been a successful athlete in track and football, I developed a pretty healthy appetite. Add to that, my mom was a magician in the kitchen. When dinner was ready, I broke records running to the kitchen to feast on whatever she had made. Those are fond memories for me. Thanks, Mom! You’re my foundational inspiration for cooking like I do, healthy and flavorful. Fast forward to today and I’ve accumulated a number of favorite meals I like to make, share and consume. Having authored 15 other books, I wrote this cookbook so you too might learn and enjoy what I’ve experienced for 20+ years!
WHY I WROTE THIS COOKBOOK
SERIOUSLY, Why DID I write this cookbook? Great question! It’s not like there aren’t enough cookbooks out there already, let alone more sophisticated ones written by professionally trained chefs and nutritional enthusiasts, right? I mean, I don’t have any certifications or degrees in culinary arts or other fields related to food and nutrition, per se. Although, I do make the world’s best chocolate chip cookies, bar none, without training, certifications, degrees or stealing some family recipe. Something to keep in mind … You don’t need certifications either to be the best at what you do when it can bring smiles to people’s faces with every bite!
That said, I’m certainly not aiming to help you attain some super duper vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, low-carb or some other health regimen goal via the fun-tasting dishes and beverages I’m about to present to you inside my cookbook. I will say though, there actually are some meals and beverages I do make, and are included inside my cookbook, that are healthy for you and can actually help you lose weight and stay slim. I make note of them on specific pages. So, watch for them!
So, back to the question! What, then, is the aim of my cookbook? Simply, it is to share a handful of my personal/favorite meals that I’ve been making for the past 20+ years and that other people have also found to be absolutely great tasting, “out-of-this-world delish,” “yummy to the taste buds” and ultimately their favorite too whenever I’m in town or I happen to be in their kitchen or they’re in mine! “Bart, will you please make your world famous ____________________.” (Fill in the blank WITH A MEAL or BEVERAGE of your choice FROM THIS COOKBOOK!)
Real quick, where did I get the recipes, cooking skills and training to cook what I do? Well, from three main sources: (1) My knack and love for cooking came from my mom, of course. Watching her make magic using basic ingredients in the kitchen over the years totally rubbed off. I picked up SOME of her amazing talent and creativity. (2) The recipes came from what I love to eat! (3) Another motivating source to cook healthy, besides what tastes great to me… most of my days are very long and energy-zapping where I need optimum fuel (i.e., healthy meals/beverages) that nutritionally serve my body so I can keep going and going. No coffee or energy drinks for this boy, no way, never. Also, I let food be my medicine. I stay far healthier and away from the doctor’s office when I eat healthy and control what I put into my body. Wouldn’t you agree?
So, there you have it. Tack on 20+ years of cooking experience and you’ve got the dishes you’re about to see and hopefully enjoy in your own kitchen real soon!
