This week's tester is Mark Matthey and his family from Oregon. Mark is married to Kayce and has three children, Karson(8), Konner(5), Madelyn(3). Mark is an Army Officer, currently teaching ROTC at Oregon State University. He and Kayce workout together at CrossFit Ubiquity. In his spare time Mark enjoys hunting, fishing, watching football and hanging out with his family. 

Mark tackled this meal plan on his own,but did get a little bit of help from Kayce when it came to chopping onions. (Kayce can dice them without tears!)

"My wife does all the cooking in our house, but I wanted to take this on by myself," he shared. 

Scroll down to see how the recipes turned out for Mark this week:

Beef Stew with Green Chiles & Yams

Sesame Chicken with Broccoli


Beef and Butternut Braise

Tamarind Lacquered Chicken Satay

Mark! Thank you for being an awesome sport and taking on these four recipes with little cooking skills. I'd say you did a superb job with each and every recipe!! I am super impressed with the final products, even though you had to call Kayce in for a little help. Onions can be the worst! Your sausage fingers and lack of knife skills really didn't show in your photos at all. Congrats on becoming a "Culinary Ninja" and keep up the good work!!

(Mark and his beautiful family)
