Confident home cooking




I think it’s time for people to put down the menus and pick up the spatulas.

Not only does cooking typically lead to healthier and more economical eating, it’s also a heck of a lot more fun than ordering out.

I’ve posted over 1,000 recipes on Macheesmo. For each one, I do my best to give full explanations of what I did and tips on what I’d do differently next time. I’ll bring up the tricky parts and the easy parts.

There will be photos. Oh yes. There will be photos although older ones will be of varying quality…

What is Macheesmo?

Macheesmo is a phrase I came up with that simply means cooking with confidence. Luckily for you, Macheesmo is something that can be learned.



About Me

My name is Nick Evans and I write and manage Macheesmo. I’m 25 31 and I have a “normal” day job. When I’m not working, I love to cook and love everything food related, but I have no formal training. That said, I experiment with all types of cooking and love trying new stuff.

I live in Denver, CO with my wife and official taste-tester, Betsy, my dog, Porter, and my cat, Tipsy.

Contact Me!

If you have a question about a specific recipe, it’s always best just to leave a comment on that recipe and I’ll do my best to respond.

If you have a general question though or just want to say howdy, you can always contact me here. (I don’t bite, unless you’re a sandwich.)

Food Fighters!

On August 12th (8/7c), I’m going to be the home cook featured on NBC’s new show Food Fighters. I will be fighting my way through five extremely talented chefs on my way to try to win $100,000!

Love Your Leftovers

In 2014 I published my first full cookbook.  The book is called Love your Leftovers and will teach you how to make delicious, new dishes out of leftovers.  You can find out more about the book here.
