The ultimate day for love is right around the corner.  That’s right folks; Valentine’s Day is only 3 days away.   Some may go to dinner while others will brave the kitchen and cook a romantic meal for their honey.    What’s a romantic meal?  For me it’s anything that I didn’t cook!!   Hey, when you are the CFO(Chief Foodie Official) you tend to cook most all of the meals and it’s a nice change to be cooked for.  I’m sure there’s...Read more …

Turkey Meatballs with Apple, Spinach and Provolone

Having a young child has made me more creative when it comes to cooking.   It’s not that he’s a picky eater, in fact he eats everything.    While I do cook vegetables on a regular basis and give him fruits daily, I still don’t think he eats enough.  Honestly, most of us don’t meet our daily requirements of fruits and vegetables but easily exceed our limits when it comes to fats, sugars and carbs.  While I’m no nutritionist or health nut,...Read more …

  I took my son by his Grandmother today so that I can run a few errands and go to the dentist.   Little did I know that there was a major tornado and thunderstorm watch in my area and most of Metro Atlanta.  Despite watching the news I somehow wasn’t aware of the severity of what was expected to transpire for most of the day.    A couple of minutes after I returned home, Mr. Jehancancook informed me of the weather...Read more …

A few days ago I asked my followers on my Facebook fan page what recipes they would like to see on this blog in the future.   So I made a list of your request and I’m making my way through it one by one.  I’ve been a slow with posting requests in the past because I tend to not plan ahead and cook what I’m in the mood to eat at that moment.   What recipes would you like to see on...Read more …

Hi all, I’m finally back after a long and much needed hiatus.   These past few months have been quite a roller coaster so I needed to take a few steps back from the blogging world and tend to a few things of which I cannot share with you just yet, but will in due time.   It feels good to be back!!  Those of you who follow me on Instagram @Jehancancook saw that I never stopped cooking.  I can’t seem to stay out...Read more …

A Break…

Nolan’s First Birthday

Nolan’s First Birthday

Yesterday was my son’s first birthday and we celebrated by having a Sesame Street party the day before.   I started planning 2 months ahead because I knew that I would be making all my decorations at night after my son was asleep.   Plus I had lots of grand plans so I knew I needed the extra time to execute them.  I started by making a wooden street sign I kept seeing all over the internet when I was browsing for...Read more …
Shrimp + Cheesy Grits

Shrimp + Cheesy Grits

Sometimes you just have a craving for something different.  I was craving Shrimp and Grits.   Odd??   For me it was as I’m not a huge fan of grits.   Well that’s any other type of grits other than cheese grits because I’m a huge cheese head.     So I searched the internet for a recipe for cheese grits and found Alton Brown’s that had a 5 star rating.   I used his recipe as a guide but added 4 times the amount of...Read more …

I woke up this morning and began my usual routine, fed the baby, dogs and myself in that order then went for a short walk.  After my walk I sat in my usual spot on the couch and began reading any updates on blogs that I follow when I discovered that I was featured on Ebony Magazine’s online site!  I was of 3 bloggers that were named as the 3 Food Bloggers you must follow.  I’m beyond honored to be...Read more …
