Welcome to The Comfort of Cooking! Classic comfort food recipes with a twist is what you’ll find here, some indulgent and some light, but always fresh and frugal. My recipes are fuss-free, family friendly and simply delicious. I encourage everyone to roll up their sleeves and get creative in the kitchen! Cooking and baking (minus the dishes) is so fun and can teach you so much. I hope you like what you find and join me as I cook in the comfort of my home!

About Me

Hi! I’m Georgia Johnson, a food writer, recipe developer and lover of all things cheese. When my nose isn’t in a cookbook, you can find me curling up with a good read, exploring Austin and traveling beyond it, spending time with my no-frills family and friends, and practicing my photography. I also love to entertain and decorate my home – I’m always adding and improving things, making it cozy! My sweet, spunky daughter, Lillian Rose, was born in May 2014. She is the light of my life! Bob Barker, my loveable Lab mix, is the resident kitchen floor crumbs vacuum and occasional cuddler. We all live happily in Austin, Texas!


As of January 2015, I use a Canon 6D with the standard lens and this f/1.8 lens. I always photograph in natural daylight, edit with Photoshop, and use minimal props, including wood boards, cloth napkins, simple white dishes and vintage silverware.
