Hello, my name is Ken, proud father, bread baker, pastry chef, foodie, saltwater fisherman and lazy gardener. 

If it's food: I like to play , grill, bake, saute, smoke, blacken, steam/sous vide and eat it raw.

Umami's Smokytown "Tejas au GoGo"  

   "G" or  "PHO-King Tacos"?


  view my wood fired pizza oven.

Yes, it's my very own Wood Fired Pizza Oven. A surprise from my brother Casey. Hey, are you ready for some pie? This oven gets hot (very) and then in goes the pies.  A few minutes later out it comes, the best Pizza or Calzone ever. The wood fire and smoke give incredible depth to the flavors of the crust and toppings. Just stacked a load of Pecan wood in the greenhouse to keep it out of the weather. This thing loves wood.


Just 700 cakes

With just a little help from my friends and a lot from coworkers.

The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws. - Publius Cornelius Tacitus, Senator of Rome

"For true patriots to remain silent, is dangerous." Samuel Adams


Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!” --Patrick Henry


 “Prejudice is the reason of fools.” -- Voltaire

"Anyone who thinks there will be deflation does not understand twenty-first century central banking. There may well be a deflationary collapse later, but before that happens the government will print money until the world runs out of trees." Jim Rogers

Milton Friedman long ago taught us, government spending is the ultimate tax on the economy: It extracts real resources from productive, private use and puts them to unproductive, public use.

The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. Margaret Thatcher

""The war on drugs has been an utter failure. We need to rethink and decriminalize our nation's marijuana laws." -Barack Obama, January 2004

"I inhaled frequently. That was the point." - Barack Obama, U.S. President
