Since I have been working at HyVee as cook/chef for their Market Cafe, I have been trying out new recipes and playing with ones that the restaurant has been using. You will find periodic updates here of new success and tragedy with the hope that someone migh find this information useful.  Also, I hope to  share ideas and tips on some of these (learn from each other).
