I'm originally from GA now in NC. I love to read and cook. I have tons of cookbooks but can never find anything to cook. The recipes either have ingredients that would require a trip to the specialty section of the grocery store or would have an ingredient I really didn't like. Plus, some were just simply too complicated. So I started creating my own recipes by taking from one and adding from another. My recipes take cooking back to the basics using common ingredients with the results being very tasty and beautiful dishes. I also offer ingredient changes to fit the cooks own taste.
