I love to cook. And I really love to bake. I created this site to share my best recipes, hoping to motivate more people to cook at home and make eating healthy foods and meals (and desserts) a priority. It’s hard to do if you don’t cook at home. Mine are simple recipes, mostly comfort foods, and they are as healthy as I can make them. I always try to:
- Incorporate as many vegetables as possible
- Avoid saturated and trans fats
- Use less sugar & little to no butter in my baking
- Bake with whole grains when possible
- Reduce unhealthy fats
- Increase fiber
I’m not selling anything and you’ll never see ads on this site.
I invite you to try my recipes and send me your comments. You can also share your own healthy recipes here. Well, thanks for visiting and I hope you like it. 🙂
p.s. I also transferred all my cooking posts from the jennyjones.com archives so there’s tons of stuff to see.
I’m having a contest next month. Check back if you’d like to win a copy of my first cookbook. 🙂
Did I ever mention that my cookbook was translated into Chinese?
< < Here’s the cover.
I don’t know if that’s my name at the top or not.
But those are the recipe photos I took.
The printing, especially the photos, look pretty bad. I’m guessing the children making it weren’t tall enough to run the press properly!
Do they know me in China?
Here’s the original cover with my picture on it > > > >
You don’t see me on the Chinese cover.
It looks like they anticipated better sales with a quesedilla than my face!
It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m getting ready for our annual open house tomorrow. It’s a small group of about 35 friends (mostly the same ones every year) and it’s turned into a competition of how much can a person eat in one sitting! Lamb chops, sushi, paninis, crab cakes, deviled eggs… all devoured in a span of four hours. It’s actually two guys who eat most of the food and you know who you are. 🙂 The food is catered and I bake all the desserts. Today I made 40 97 macaroons, 48 lemon bars, 47 meringues, 49 pfefferneusses, 38 truffles, 48 seven-layer bars, and 51 chili-chocolate-cherry cookies. That’s 378 cookies! And it’s not enough! Let’s see…378 divided by 35 is 10 – almost 11 – desserts per person! Yikes!! Everyone needs to walk home!
(*Saturday morning correction: I made more macaroons last night – the chocolate dipped ones!)
