Trying to Keep Up

With over 300,000 views every week between my website and youtube, from 200 different countries, I simply can’t to keep up with the growing number of questions. I never expected this when I started sharing my recipes and I want this to be the best experience for everyone but it’s become overwhelming.

I am a one-man operation, doing the best I can, but here is the reality: If I don’t get to 25 questions in one day, the next day it’s 50. Another couple of busy days and it’s 100 and by then I can’t catch up. I need time to work on my recipes, take the pictures, perfect the details, and share what I love. I also need time to focus on my philanthropy.

It’s wonderful to see how popular my recipes have become and I want to always be there but it’s become impossible and that makes me sad. This is my creation. I take a lot of pride in it and want it to be perfect so please know I am doing the best I can. I hope everyone understands and there are ways you can help:

  1. Understand if I am not able to answer your questions.
  2. Please do not ask a question that you can research online.
  3. Please do not ask about changing my recipe as I only make them the way I post them.
  4. If a recipe didn’t turn out, please look at the FAQs before asking what went wrong.
  5. Please continue to share your helpful comments, especially if you’ve tried something different with one of my recipes and it turned out well. That’s helpful to all of us.

My sincere thanks to everyone for understanding. I have no immediate plans to make more videos but I hope to in the near future. – Jenny Jones

Make Caesar Salad at Home

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Caesar salad! Now I don’t have to go to a fancy restaurant to get a classic Caesar salad. It was always a mystery to me because I thought I had to use whole anchovies but for me, anchovy paste is perfect and it’s also easy to use. It takes just minutes to make this dressing but you need the right ingredients. You just shake it all up in a jar and it’s done.

Traditional Caesar salad is made with romaine lettuce and for me, hearts of romaine make the best presentation, not to mention homemade croutons. I usually make croutons with slices of my faster no knead bread and my recipe is super easy too. Click here to see how to make homemade croutons.

I encourage everyone to eat a salad every day and now you can make one of those salads a classic Caesar. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

DALILA MADE MY BEET & CABBAGE BORSCHT
“Hi Jenny! I just wanted to let you know that your blog is super, I truly enjoy reading your posts and making your recipes. Your video’s are so nice, I really like how you walk through your recipes step-by-step. That’s so helpful of you and it makes cooking easier. You are doing a bang-up job, YAY YOU!! I am going to try and send you my picture of your recipe of the beet and cabbage borscht. I’m not so good at this, me and computers just don’t play nice…LOL!  Hopefully you get it and all in one piece. It was easy to make and it was ever soooo tasty!!  Talk about a wonderful aroma throughout the house, we couldn’t wait to get our soup bowls filled. My next up recipe of yours and maybe, (crossing my fingers),  picture worthy,  is your Easy Pan Pizza. Wish me luck! 😉 Many blessings to you Jenny! Your cooking buddy, Dalila G.”

~ I grew up on this fantastic soup. Good luck with the pizza! ~ jenny

JOCELYN MADE MY NO KNEAD GREEK OLIVE BREAD
“Dear Jenny, Thank you for demystifying the joys of cooking. Baking bread is healing. Warm hugs, Jocelyn.”

~ I like the seeds you put on top. It looks wonderful. ~ jenny

SABINE MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD
“Dear Mrs Jones, it was time, to bake your “no knead bread” again. With butter and selfmade marmelade the best breakfast at the moment. Allways thinking how easy and fine your recipes are. Lots of greetings from Germany.”

~ Thank you, Sabine. It looks like this loaf works nicely in a loaf pan. ~ jenny

LENORA MADE MY FASTER NO KNEAD BREAD
“Hi Jen,  I left a comment under Lenora Collins on your YouTube channel for the Faster No Knead Easy Bread. Honestly, I only had two cups of sad bread flour crumpled up in the original packaging just hanging around from a few months ago. I kind of had to guesstimate the other ingredients based on your recipe since I was using one cup less flour. You can read in my YouTube comment that I had absolutely no confidence or real idea what I was doing. I just tried to follow the recipe as close as possible. I think my mess ended up being so successful because I used your methodology and tools. Oh, except I didn’t have parchment paper, but there was no way I could’ve just plopped the dough on the surface of the 450 degree preheated Dutch oven, so I placed it on a square of aluminum foil placed at the bottom of the Dutch oven. Enclosed you can see how my “mess” turned out. No lie –  I was impressed with myself. Thank you for all of your efforts in testing these recipes so they turn out AMAZING every time.  Have a Happy New Year!!

~ I just made a loaf this morning and now I’m making croutons with it too. ~ jenny

DAVE MADE MY FASTER NO KNEAD BREAD
“Hi Jenny – thank you for the great recipe and video!  I absolutely love cooking, but artisan bread seemed so complicated.  I have recently decided to make a sourdough starter but didn’t want to wait for it to be ready, so I gave your recipe a try.  I followed your instructions and all was well.  The dough was definitely “looser” than I am used to working with, but I used my scraper and it was fine.  Check out my first loaf (good thing I took a quick picture, because it didn’t last long!).  Look at that wonderful crumb!  And the crust… oh. my. goodness. It was easy and fun, and I will be making this regularly (I hear someone cutting another piece of as I write this!). Thanks again, Dave.”

~ I have the same problem here – I turn my back on the bread and it’s gone! ~ jenny

VISHWAS MADE MY FALL-OFF-THE-BONE RIBS
“Jenny,  I came across your video when looking for ribs recipes and it left my mouth watering. I’m not much of a cook but I followed your instructions step by step and made the most delicious ribs I have ever tasted.  I used a little more chili and added a bit habanero which made it HOT .. just the way I love it. Here they are right after I took them out of the oven. Thank you!!”

~ You prove that even inexperienced cooks can make these ribs. Even with your adjustments, they turned out great. ~ jenny

JANE MADE MY SIMPLE WHOLE WHEAT BREAD
“Jenny, thank you so much for your simple whole wheat bread recipe.  I have not bought store bread since last fall when I tried your simple, no fail recipe!  I give it as gifts to my friends and family who are soooo thankful.  Jane.”

~ This loaf beautiful! I never thought of giving it as a gift but that is a great idea. ~ jenny

JENNY Y. MADE MY VEGETABLE BEAN PASTA
“Thank you for this recipe! It was so good and healthy!! Of all the recipes I tried, there wasn’t any recipe that I didn’t like!! They are easy to follow, comes out good and healthy. So, I thank you very much!☺☺ Best, Jenny.”

“Jenny, my husband bought me a KitchenAid Mixer for Christmas and I immediately started looking for bread recipes. I found yours and IM HOOKED. I’m making my way through your bread recipes, one by one! So easy and DELICIOUS!! The Wheat bread is fantastic. I made the Cinnamon Raisin twist bread this morning. Added pecans to one loaf!
