About this pro

Hello. My name is Lori Watkins. Cooking is my passion!  I loved watching my mom cook as a child. I have had 2 cookbooks published and enjoy cooking for small crowds. I used to own and operate my own catering company. I often cook dinner for my church as they serve dinner on Wednesday night. I get such joy out of  cooking 

Mainly  I enjoy people eating and enjoying my food.

    Lori is very thorough in her instructions and her passion for cooking great food is equaled by her passion to teach others to do the same. She has a very warm and friendly personality which makes the learning experience very enjoyable. And everything she cooks is amazing!

  • Alyssa Cunningham

    Lori was friendly and patient, which is important considering I don't know how to cook much! She thoroughly explained each step in a way that made it easy for me to follow along. Great experience!

    OMG we made a southern dish that made me think my granny made it!!! It’s in her cookbook. She was very professional and got to my house on time with the food.

  • Lottie Baker

    She came to my home and made ME feel comfortable!!! Lol. It was just me so it didn’t take long to cook the food so we sat and talked and I felt like I knew her for years already. We cooked fried chicken!
