Hi there, I'm Jen. I am in no way a trained cook nor have I ever been paid to cook food, but I do know I love cooking, I love food, and I love sharing my food experiences. I also REALLY love to travel. I would travel much more if my budget would allow it. Alas. But, I do make a point to travel and explore my world (near and far) as often as I can--and I hope to be a traveler well into old age. I live in Seattle with my husband, Kris, and my dog Madison and cat Roger. My husband is not nearly the wanderlust-filled planner I am, so I am thankful he is happy to go along with my grand ideas. He makes a great travel partner--he keeps me calm when things go awry, and is the easy-going guy to my go-go attitude. He also knows how to cook, which he learned from his dad, and often joins me in the kitchen. Even on busy weeknights, we try to cook new and different recipes, while filling ourselves up with great ingredients. Welcome!
