Greetings from Down Under!

G'day folks,

I'm Doug, originally from Canada but now living in Australia! I tried joining another cooking forum, but for some reason, I found there was no way to actually post stuff, so that's when I found this forum.

I'm not a fantastic cook, but I love cooking nice exotic meals that taste great. I'm a huge fan of Indian recipes as well as Thai recipes, but I'm always on the look-out for new techniques and tips! Therefore, I'll be lurking around trying to scope out new stuff!

A good friend of mine (who also loves cooking) and I decided a while back that we should start our own Youtube channel, which we've done. It's called "Just Eat It!", where we show simple but awesome tasting recipes that dads can make for the family. We're always after new and exciting recipes, so if you have a recipe you'd like to suggest we make in our Two Aussie Dads style ;-), feel free to drop me a line! Of course, we'll give you full credit in the video to make sure everyone knows where the recipe came from!

Anyway, I hope to eventually meet more like-minded people here in the forum.

Feel free to say g'day!


Diver Doug

Welcome to DC! Nice Superlite in your avatar. I beat up a couple 17's back in the day.

Thanks Craig! Got any good dive stories? I haven't had a Superlite on in nearly 20 years...SIGH! Miss those days. Maybe I could swap a few dive photos and recipes sometime :-)

I haven't had one on since the mid 70's. Most stories I have are from my days teaching recreational and driving a cattle boat. No pics from me as spearing was my thing. My buddy won an Oscar, along with the rest of the team, for his camera work on the documentary "The Cove". He's off to Bikini Island/Atoll to film some segments for the next round of the "Shark Week" series. Hope he doesn't come back glowing in the dark!

G'day DD!

As Addie says, stick around and have some fun . Looks like you two dads know how to include fun on your cooking channel.

That we do! We try to make it more entertaining than your average "and now you add a tsp of salt....and then you add some sugar....and then you add some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!" kind of cooking show. We like to make stuff that is easy, full of taste and kids will love (my kids are really fussy eaters, but Jason's kids love all of them!), but mostly to show dads how easy it is to cook really good food. That's why I put it out to everyone here that if they have a recipe that's quick and easy, we'll make it up on the show and give him/her full credit for the recipe (and if they have a cookbook, we'll promote it as well)

Looking forward to joining in some of the conversations!

DD

"He said; Do you come from the land down under?

I live on the Canadian Border, on the U.S. side, and have spent time in Perth. I like both places, and have good friends both in Canada, and Australia. I look forward to your posts, and friendship. Welcome to D.C.

Oh, and if you include you email address in your information, I can send some recipes from my cookbooks for you to try out. If you like them, you can use them, with a nod to the author.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North
