I live in Austin Texas with my wonderful husband Evan, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy.  We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I’m not working with clients or practicing yoga you can find me in the kitchen or on the back porch BBQ’in’ with good friends and family. When it comes to food I like to think outside of the box and go off the recipes my mind tends to dream up. I’m always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I also LOVE to compete in cooking challenges, well any challenge really :)  I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week at a minimum. You will probably also begin to notice that I can tend to get addicted to certain ingredients… (like yuzu). ;)  I’ve had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. Please subscribe to my blog and join me on this experimental culinary journey.

What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), around town reviews, and beer and wine parings! I hope you all enjoy, cheers!

  3. Hi Jen,

    My name is Blair and I write for http://www.favedietsblog.com – the FaveDiets blog. I was looking at your blog the other day and I came across your great recipe for Healthy Turkey Quinoa Meatloaf with Mashed Sweet Potatoes. I enjoyed the recipe so much that I linked to it on my most recent blog post. You can read it here: http://www.favedietsblog.com/mashed-sweet-potatoes-a-healthy-tasty-thanksgiving-alternative/.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Thanks!

  4. Jen, Your recipes look great! I’ve been wanting to try cooking with veggies I’m not that familiar with, e.g. kale, chard, so this gives me some wonderful ideas. Any possibility that you’d mind sharing what other dishes you serve each recipe with? For example, the bacon and chard recipe – what kind of other dishes do you serve with it?

    Thanks so much!

  5. Hey Jen,

    You got some great (and hunger inspiring) recipes on your blog! We’ve just come down to Austin for the local food scene and I thought I’d invite you to check out CitySprout.com and tell us what you think!

  6. Hello Jen,

    Happy New Year to you. May 2013 bring you more happiness, love, and success. :-) Thank you for keep following my blog. I hope my blog posts do not disappoint. Many blessings and much love to you. :-)
