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

    Hey Jenny,

    I am contacting you from Cynogage, we are a video SSP with direct campaigns that are looking for quality inventory now. We work with brands such as Verizon, Ford, and Chase. You get a lot of user traffic on here and figured its an easy way for you to drive in more revenue. Please contact me back if you would like to make this happen.

    Best Regards

      Thank you but I do not make money on this site. I’m just sharing my recipes for anyone who wants them. But it’s nice to be asked…

    I stumbled across all your recipes and now I can’t wait to try them. I was looking for a recipe for giant very rustic sandwich buns for thick roast beef sandwiches. Do you have one?
    Thanks so much. I understand if you can’t answer this.

    Hi Again Jenny,
    I’m going to try your poppyseed break recipe. My Mother’s was delicious and I’m sure your’s is too. She made delicious Golopki also. Your recipe seems like hers – she used water too. I remember one time she said she was surprised when her sister-in-law used tomato soup to cover (we called them pigeons as well as Golopki). I don’t think I spelled it correctly. Oh well 🙂

    Hi Jenny,
    I love to watch your videos. I’m not a very good cook but my Mother was the best. Wish I had learned from her. My Father was Polish and she’s German & English. She cooked both Polish and Dutch foods. She made a Dutch cake that was not very high, only about 2 inches or so and the middle was indented where she would put fruit like peaches and sour cream. It seems the dough was sweet and I don’t know if she baked the fruit and sour cream topping or not. I hope you know the recipe if you can answer. Thanks, Marilyn

    We tried to hit breads on your main home screen and nothing happens. If I key in something in the search box and then hit that I get a listing on the side and that does work.

    Ditto what they said. For me, it’s all the fun, kitschy stuff you have to cook with (especially those cute timers) that I look forward to in your videos. And that great sense of humor of yours! Getting undressed for the eye doctor!! I just about peed my pants when you said that! So, stay well, keep focused on what’s important and we’ll still be here when you post more videos. (Oh, BTW, my favorite video was the blooper one. TFF!)

    I can’t express how much happier you have made my life with these easy, easy, recipes. However, when is a good time to add any other ingredients? Such as, olives, garlic cloves, cilantro or raisins?? Thank you for sharing your information, photos and time.

    • Jenny

      You should find the answers by looking at my many versions of bread recipes.

  8. Debra Torres

    How do I unsubscribe to your web site?

    • Jenny

      At the very bottom of every email notification that is sent, there is a link to unsubscribe.

    Don’t feel sad because you can’t keep up with all of the questions, Jenny. I’m sure everyone understands and appreciates all that you continue to do and have done for us. Seriously, you are the best! “Thank you, thank you” for the wonderful recipes! 🇨🇦 😘

  11. Becky

    As a fellow cook, you must know the hard felt desire for real cooking.
    More programs and recipes please!!!!

  12. Diane simmons

  13. Phyllis C.W.

    I want to be like you when I grow up, I am 64 and 5 feet tall, may take awhile. You are one of my heroes and I pray God continues to bless you.

  14. Berthe Odonnell

    Just wanted to say keep up the great recipes, 🙂 i have not cooked and bake for so long till i found your recipes. Omg love it thankyou so much jenny 🙂

  15. Mike

    Jenny, Please continue to do what you do and how you do it. My confidence in the kitchen grows each time I see one of your videos and I not so shy to attempt a new recipe. Keep up the marvelous work! 🙂

    Hi Jenny, your remarks were so sincere and heartfelt, I was compelled to let you know just how much you’ve inspired me to bake my own bread, get courageous in my retirement, and pursue my dreams. I only recently found you on YouTube, and I was enthralled with your genuine approach and fun style! I’m an artist, and related to your love of color in your utensils etc.
    I believe that the people who are really supportive will totally understand that you need to follow your dream in your own way, and they will forgive you if you are not at their beck and call ! I would encourage you to not feel guilty for doing your videos and photos in your own time…..after all, we all love your work because it was done with care and detail. I for one would not want you to churn them out like a factory! 🙂 Or become commercial. I intend to explore all your recipes and videos, and practice cooking while I enjoy your sweet “presence” in my life !! Thank you for all that you have given to so many! Sending you a hug 🙂

    I do not watch for the recipes; Its just so much fun just to watch you

  18. Ross Brandman

    I made your brownies and banana bread without butter recipes. Your directions are so clear, it really makes this new hobby fun. It took three tries to make the banana bread because I have No experience baking but, the guys at work ate every bit of bread number three and four! Thanks!

  19. Barb A

    Jenny, please don’t feel badly! You’ve done an absolutely wonderful thing here! I’ve tried many of your recipes and they’ve all turned out beautifully – while being both delicious and nutritous!

    You just keep cooking, dear lady!

    You. .are such a lovely person. We who love you understand how hard you work on your posts. Your recipes are perfect ! I especially love the ones from your Mom / Family . My husband’s Grandma(“Bobcia”) was born in Poland and his Mom and the 9 other children grew up speaking Polish-“sort of” . I know you know what I mean ! LOL.I’ve learned to make the stuffed cabbage he loves so much but that’s it for entrees .How I wish I could make pierogi ! I do make many of her Christmas cookie recipes and poppy-seed and nut rolls. Never as good as hers ! Don’t even have good recipes . I’m hoping to make Chrusciki using YOUR recipe !Really wish I could learn to make those poppy-seed and nut rolls . In Cleveland we all called them , “Potica”. I think that is Slovenian . Now we’re in TX and nobody knows what we are talking about .They DO know their Kolache here though ! Everybody knows somebody who makes “the best” . You just do videos and recipes on YOUR schedule .If you don’t , you will have defeated the whole purpose you created it all for anyway . When it stops being fun , it becomes a drudge …that’s when you need to quit ! I love everything about your work; and you DO have a lot of recipes to keep us all busy for years . ‘nuf said ! (((HUGS))) ^_^ K

    Hi Jenny,

    I am very happy when I get to read your blog, watch your video’s and especially, make your recipes.
    They always come out very tasty and are not a problem making.
    Sometimes I do get like a “mad scientist” when I cook….LOL!!

    I, for one, totally understand you are only one person, you….by yourself, can only do so much.
    I’m sure you had no idea you would get such a huge response to your “fun” project of cooking and posting.
    You are doing a wonderful job!! YAY you!!
    It does take up a lot of time and it does need constant attention.

    No worries on my part, I’d like to see you at least once every two weeks if not more, but I do understand.
    Just remember, this is suppose to be fun, for us and you too.
    It’s your time to do what you want to do, just have fun! 🙂

    Keep doing what you do….keep working on your recipes, take all the pictures you need, keep perfecting the details, and when you’re able, share what you can.

    Happily waiting till your next recipe.
    Wishing you all the best!!
