The Simple-Talk Cookbook: A Cookbook for Geeks by Geeks

I can’t believe I forgot about this! I blame it on my crazy school schedule back in the day. In December of 2006, I was asked to contribute a recipe to the Simple-Talk Cookbook. Of course, I gladly obliged. The editor, Claire Brooking, published the very professional-looking cookbook to the opinion section of simple-talk. where she stated:

With over ten contributing chefs, all MVPs and experts from the SQL Server and .NET community, the cookbook is written by geeks for geeks. To get cooking, simply download the cookbook by clicking on the zip file in the top right-hand corner of this article or on the link below.

Happy cooking from the editorial team at Simple-Talk and all the starring chefs!

I won’t lie, it made me feel great being addressed as an “expert” in my community. Thank you, simple-talk! Sorry for saying Phil Factor’s anonymity kinda freaked me out ;)

Anyway, to download the cookbook which has my recipe titled “Chrissy’s Favorite Bread Pudding,” visit the article on on Alternatively, you can see the recipe here on, or buy our Real Cajun Cookbook for yourself or a friend :D
