About

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 no-fuss, 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!

I’m Georgia Johnson, a food writer, hopeless shutterbug 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 quality time with my no-frills family and friends, and practicing my photography. I also love to entertain and decorate my home - We’re always adding and improving things, making it ours!

My well-fed hubby, Mark, is the master tight jar opener, high up things reacher, and lucky taste tester. Bob Barker, our big, loveable Lab mix is the resident kitchen floor crumbs vacuum and occasional cuddler. We all live happily in Austin, Texas, and are expecting our first baby in June 2014!

Photography

As of Dec. 2012, I use a Canon Rebel T3i camera with the standard lens, this macro 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 and simple white dishes.

Here is a series of great guides for improving your food photography.
