I remember when I was younger and my friend Mike and I went driving around town in his car. I thought it would be fun to jump out of the passenger window while he was doing 15 miles an hour. As I jumped from the car I had a moment of peace before my left foot hit the ground and I realized that the ground was moving way to fast for me to catch up with my next step. As I was tumbling down the parking lot I thought, "You never know how fast you are going until you hit the ground." Now, every morning i get up and enjoy that same feeling of peace, until around 4 pm when I hit the ground. I wouldn't trade this for anything, because everyday I feel like I am walking on air if only for a moment. #ccgears
Working seven days a week is easy. Waking up at 5 am and going to bed at 12 am, working until you cant stand, is easy. I can tell you now that the hardest part of trying to make your dreams come true is getting other people to believe in your dream. Obsession is a lonely friend. #CCGears
UPDATE!!! We are almost ready to announce a fun event coming on February. CC Gears has been invited to do a cooking demo at the Spring Home and Garden Show. So if you like our food or want to see me act up on stage, please set the date aside and come join the fun. It is February 13th-15th at the American Bank Center. As more details come in we will let you know. This is an early event update and is still in the planing stages, but if it comes together it will be a great time for #ccgears
COOKING TIP OF THE WEEK!!: Baking vs. Cooking. Some people can cook and some people can bake. To decide what one you would be good at, look at them as you would Clay vs. Legos. Cooking is like clay, it is a free flowing idea that can be molded into any shape you want. Baking is like legos, it is a rigid set of blocks that can be assembled into one single thing. So if you like sculpting with Clay, you will love cooking or if building with Legos is your thing try baking.
Back to work we go. I will be inventing a new day of the week. Thuriday, it will be between Thursday and Friday most of you call it sleep, I call it work. Always hungry: #ccgears
We made it to the weekend. This week has been amazing, Some days we are running along other days we feel like we are being dragged, but we have had a blast and are hurngry for mroe. bring on the work. Long hours back breaking work,,,, yes please. #ccgears
OMG!! Two events today, 16 hours of work, Thank you Kristin you did an amazing job, keep it up. Now on to tomorrow 78-90 people. If you have ever sat in a rocket right before blast off.... #ccgears
Last night was an amazing event. We catered a dinner party for 35, the food was great, & everyone loved it. We passed out all the business cards we had and people were asking for more. I think the scariest part of the whole night was that it was I was the only guy in the whole house. If you want to feel helpless try cooking for 35 type A personality women in one night!
You know it's a good week when you just do a dinner party for 17, and that is the smallest dinner party for just this week. I challenge Tammy to a foot massage fight and I hope she wins.
UPDATE!!! Big week coming up for us, full of food, fun, and hard work. Parties big and small. Lots of opportunities to teach and learn about my favorite obsession, food. We are still looking for a location for CC Gears and we are going to start putting together our fund raising events for the new year so sit back and enjoy the calm before the storm people.
I feel like a ping pong ball. I do a job for a family and i get 2 jobs out of the event. I am meeting amazing families and the harder I work the farther behind I get. This will be an amazing thing one day, and I will be able to give back to people in need.
UPDATE!!! We are head long into the rest of this week. Dinner party tomorrow for 15 people. Then the real fun starts. Turkey in the brine sides are started, pies are done, wow this is my fav-o-rite week of the year .
Just spent the last two days making food for an army of people. It will be like this for the next 5 days. Then I am going to eat like a King, drink like a wino, laugh like a clown, and sleep like i'm dead. what a great week..
Updates!!! Okay, everyone go join our email list at the link above. Next go to our updated website and check it out. www.ccgears.com. Please pass it on to everyone you know. Thank you for all your support
When the dust settles you get to look at all that is still standing. Every event in my life that has caused me stress has always turned out for the better. Through hard work, talent, a lot of luck, and the love and support of my wife and son, I can stand here and say to everyone Thank you for the support. As everyday, today I am going to work all day on food. Setting up events, working on quotes, making phone calls, and whatever else I can get done. Soon we will have an event calender so if you are looking to have a simple event you can book that date. Take a deep breath and make today my best friend.
UPDATE!!! I was hired by a family to cook dinner 4 nights a week, I am blessed in so many ways. Now we are going to set up our Co-ops for the rest of the weekdays. We hope soon to have a program in place so people can just read what a co-op is and sign up for it. what we do know now is there will be a host of the co-op we will use the hosts house to cook the meals, so they get a discount on labor cost. Each co-op has a group of 8 people total. The rest of the labor is divided between the remaining members. Then the food cost is divided between each member of the co-op. The menu will be custom made to fit each persons needs. for example lets say on the menu for tonight we have fresh made pasta, from scratch red sauce with meatballs. Family A wants turkey instead of beef then we make the meal to suit both families. I believe we can put together some co-ops real fast so if you are interested in becoming a host or a guest please let us know asap so you can get on the list. Tammy and I are really excited to offer this program so lets do this people.
We have had an amazing response to our Co-op idea so far. I feel like this will be an amazing way to feed a lot of people for a very good price to everyone. As soon as we iron out the details we will start forming the co-ops it will be first come first serve. Thank you all in advance for the support. Now lets make lots of food.
Tammy and I have come up with an idea that will let anyone that wants great food cooked by an amazing chef to be affordable and convenient. We are going to start a food co-op, How would you like your meals made for the week at around $50 in groceries for 2 people? more details to follow.
C.C. Gears is taking on more clients, we have Sunday to Thursday open for meals, dinner parties, catering, cooking lessons, and anything else to do with food. Please spread the word.
