Scott's Recipes

I've been cooking since age 10, and maintaining/expanding this page since 1992.

I hope that you find this site useful.



Sauces don’t get enough respect. A good sauce doesn’t drown the flavors, but brings them out and enhances them. There are just a few sauce recipes on this site, but day-to-day cooking often involves preparing dinner and, as you go, suddenly realizing just what kind of sauce you need to improvise for your dish. Since there is far too much to say about flavor (and most of that you’ll need to determine from experimentation), I’d like to talk just a little about technique.


Everywhere one turns, one can find cookbooks. So many cookbooks. My kitchen has them piled high. And then, there are millions of recipes (billions?) that have been tested and tried and published online in forums like this.
