About the Author

Mike Bellino has an eclectic background in music, sound recording, aerospace, micro farming and electrical engineering. But at the end of the day, it all comes down to cooking and creating a meal for his family to enjoy together. Since he made his first “Wacky Cake” as a youth, he’s been captivated by cooking and its inner workings. The desire to “know how things work” has motivated him to read, learn, try, endure failures and even occasionally succeed.


Mike makes his home with his wife, Mary, and five children on 23 acres in Bradford, New Hampshire. During the day, Mike is a mild-mannered electrical engineer. On weekends and evenings, to stave off boredom, he and his family raise chickens, turkeys, hogs, grow vegetables, tap maple trees, harvest wild blackberries and keep bees for their Circle Bell micro-farm.
