Hi, I’m Mikey Sammich. Not really.

My name is Ken.

Sure, I use an alias but I stand behind my content and my reviews.  I just don’t like the idea of putting my name out there for the whole world to see.  Besides, I’m sure if you looked hard enough then you could find out who I really am.

I guess I just like “Mikey Sammich”.  It’s a cool alter ego to have. It’s all about loving good, hot sandwiches.  Hell, it’s about good food.

I was raised by a Sicilian mom and we lived with my Sicilian grandparents for a while in the early years.  I was “subjected” to so much Italian deli and bread that to this day I have a HUGE bread addiction. LOL.  I really need good, crusty, Italian bread with every meal.  Like the comedian Sebastian Maniscalco says, “I’m Italian.  I need bread and something to dip it in within 15 seconds of sitting down at a table.”

So, while OvenCookers.com definitely started out being solely focused on panini and great sandwiches…we’ve sort of decided to expand our horizons.  Why?  Well, I love to eat.  And I love so much different food.  Why should I limit my self to just panini and sandwiches?

Sure, most people will tell you that you need to tightly focus your “food blog” but, this is about providing you with information about what I think you’ll love to eat and you can prepare it the best.

Affiliate Disclaimer:  Yup.  I am an affiliate, too. That means within these pages there are recommendations and products that link out to Amazon and other places.  If you buy a product based on my referral then I make a small commission.  It doesn’t cost you any more than it would if you went straight to the Amazon page and ordered it yourself.  It’s just my wage from Amazon for referring someone to their product.  If you do order and I make money…then a sincere “thank you”.  If you don’t, that’s ok too.  I just hope you liked being for the amount of time you spent.
