I love to cook, of course. I also like to listen to music. I love Lady GaGa, Adele, Sia, and many, many others. I also enjoy reading. I have interviewed several authors, my favorite author is Tess Gerritsen. I love sharing my recipes and talking with other cooks. Feel free to email me at dustinhood@ymail.com I hope to begin culinary school soon in Memphis. I have to figure out a way to have it paid for, or at least some. I specialize in pastas, seafood, casseroles, and soups. I like to try to make my meals affordable so that you can cook better meals on a low budget. I have began a food blog on my Facebook. Which I post a new receipe everyday and a picture of the actual dish that I made, not a Google search result. Add me on Facebook and let me know you like cooking too!

Carey's Rich & Creamy New England Clam Chowder

Carey's Rich & Creamy New England Clam Chowder

I loved this recipe! I was wanting a Clam Chowder that was very creamy and smooth and had a wonderful flavor. I was impressed by the reviews and though that it didn't use just a whole lot of ingredients from what I had seen in other clam chowders. This was very easy to do. I had a few trials and errors while making this. At first I forgot to cut the bacon into small pieces. I allowed them to finished and that left me with extra grease. I washed out the pot, and then repeated this step with the small pieces as directed and added extra bacon grease. I had also made the mistake and bought canned whole clams. (I live in Arkansas and even our Kroger that typical carries "fresh" seafood did not offer clams like I wanted. But I minced the clams myself and it turned out great. I actually liked it, because I could dice them to various sizes. If I changed anything it would be how small I diced some of the potatoes. While it did not negatively affect the taste or texture, just personal preference — pdxbodyworx 10/5/2012

*Creator* Thank you, everyone for the ratings. I'm so proud because this is a original recipe of mine. Also try about 1 Tbsp of Honey to the shrimp, gives it an even more savory flavor! — dustinhood 6/19/2012

Crockpot Potato Soup

Crockpot Potato Soup

It was okay, I'm looking for something that has more substance and not so chunky potato in cream bath. It takes good, but I doctored it up with seasonings too. But it was good, just not what I was looking for. — Brooksdsh30 12/11/2011
Banana Bread

Banana Bread

I'm surprised this got so many good reviews. It was very easy to make, but I thought it lacked flavor and didn't have the right texture for me. Add some nut meg, cinnamon, cloves, and then you're talking. But easy to make, just not very flavorful. — corbac 12/11/2011
Steve's Tomato-Basil Soup

Steve's Tomato-Basil Soup

I liked the soup. I added some basil when I added the crushed tomatoes. Fairly easy to make. Great light soup. Would be great with bread. — stevemur 12/5/2011
Chewy Sugar Cookies

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Normally I make cookie dough and it never makes it to the oven. These I put into a 9' Cake Pan and made a cookie cake. It was so chewy and perfect. Great recipe!! — danas 10/25/2011
