We are sorry to report that Kevin D. Weeks, the About.com Guide to Cooking for Two, passed away on April 5, 2012. Kevin was a talented food writer and photographer, who also had a keen understanding of computer programming. These combined skills made him a valuable contributor, and he was always willing to share his knowledge and insights. †Kevin will be greatly missed by his readers and by About.com Staff and Guides, some of who described him as someone who "loved his job," a "wonderful colleague," and "my favorite curmudgeon."
Kevin was an innovator as well. He was one of the first About.com writers to start the Wordless Wednesday blog posts and newsletters, and he became known for his weekly Mental Munchie blogs - wonderful, quirky quotes about food and eating.
From Kevin, "Cooking has always been an integral part of my life and even when I was working 60- and 70-hour weeks in other jobs, I always found time to cook. These days I'm lucky enough to be paid for doing it." And we at About were lucky enough to be a part of it.
