We live in North Carolina and I am a foodie. I love researching and changing recipes to fit my own needs and desires. My posts will be the Stephanie way of cooking so you will probably recognize some things and others might leave you saying that isn't for me but thanks anyway. This will allow me to share something I truly love, food and preparing it in such a way that my family and friends can feel how much I care for them.

Remove lobster from oven and slice the remaining butter into pats and place on cooked
