I’m just a regular country boy who enjoys cooking. My cooking style is all about turning good ingredients into great recipes! I grew up in Louisiana with two loving grandmothers who had two different styles of cooking, and I learned a lot from them both; along with what I learned from my mother.
I made some dietary changes as I got older and once I lost my parents to health issues, I quickly realized I needed to make some changes. In addition, through my relationship with God, I started to learn more about what I should and shouldn’t eat.
The recipes you will see on this site will not include pork or shellfish and that’s just a choice I made for myself. And even though I try to eat clean, at times I will justify some not-so-healthy options. 🙂
I love to experiment to try to come up with new recipes so at times I may strike out, but there are those moments when I hit a home run and those are the ones I want to share with you all. I prefer to cook from scratch, but life keeps you busy and extra time is not always available. So, I try to make my recipe as simple as possible — without compromising on flavor. I really enjoy helping people and making those around me feel comfortable so welcome to my world of food.
I’m Shanna Jones. The Photographer, Videographer, Web Designer, and Social Media Guru here at Dude That Cookz. Aside from getting the opportunity to work side-by-side with my better half and best friend, I get to enjoy all of his delicious food. I call that winning!
