About

My name is Corrigan Duffy but you can call me Corrie. I am a married man in my 30’s and I mainly stay at home with the kids, doing the shopping, cleaning, and yes, the cooking too. Over the years I have learned that cooking dinner is a point of stress in my life. I started out by helping my parents prepare food in the kitchen and then slowly started cooking all by myself and create my own recipes. I toyed with the idea of becoming a chef, but for now I decided to start my own food blog instead.

My motto is “New day – New recipe”.

If you enjoyed, please help me out by pin or share recipes.

What you will find on Corrie Cooks?

1. I answer common cooking questions people have.
These tend to be questions that people have about various products they are looking to buy or already own. I also focus on answering questions posed by people looking to learn a new skill in the kitchen. To see my collection of educational cooking articles click here.

2. I compare popular products that people have trouble deciding on when shopping.
For instance when someone is in the market for a stovetop pressure cooker and they can’t decided between one model and another that are appear to be very similar I help them identify the differences and figure out for themselves which model will best meet their needs. To see my list of comparison posts click here.

3. I help people find the exact product they are looking for based on feature or benefit.
This is a problem I see a lot in the marketplace. Someone is looking for something very specific and they have a hard time find it. I try to help curate products by unique feature so that customers can find exactly what they are looking for. It’s really easy to find lists of bestselling models from any category but if you are looking to find something more specific then it can get really hard for customers to find options. Lower on this page I’ve got a short list of pages as examples of this curation technique I use on the website.

4. I help people find recipes.
This is a new section in the website. For now I have added more than 500 Instant Pot recipes you can check for free. I am not a chef by any means but I do a lot of cooking and know good recipes when I try them. When I find more good recipes I will add them to my lists of of excellent third parties on the web in this section.

That’s pretty much it and it keeps me busy here on the site full time day in and day out.
