Meal Motivation - Cooking Blog

Meal Motivation. A cooking blog and recipe website by Harvey Kane. Check out great recipes such as my legendary salmon toasties, or an easy chicken marinade I use whenever I want to cook some nice tasting grilled or BBQ chicken. I'm also a big fan of Crock pot recipes too, and I'll do one of these most weeks.

What is this all about?

I love cooking. I love good food, and I enjoy the thrill of creating something interesting. I'd like to share some of my cooking experiences, for better or worse with the rest of the world.

I visit a number of recipe websites when looking for inspiration, and sadly most recipe websites are rubbish. Most are covered from top to bottom with ads, some have boring and amateurish recipes, and small, mean looking pictures to go with the recipe. In short, there is no love in most recipe websites.

I'm trying to do something different here. While I'm not a chef, you get an honest and well thought out recipe that tastes damn good. I'll provide lots of pictures from start to finish (not just the finished product) and keeping with the theme of motivation, I'll offer ways in which you can improve my recipes.

All these recipes are original, though often I use an existing recipe for inspiration.

Who am I?

Harvey Kane

I'm not a chef. I don't work at a cafe or restaurant. I'm not a food critic or photographer.
I'm just a regular Kiwi guy who likes to cook. I'd look at doing this professionally, but most cafe owners look overworked, underpaid and stressed. So I choose to cook for fun instead, and I like it that way.
I do web development and search engine optimisation by day, and this site is one way for me to explore something that interests me. Let me know if you enjoy it.
