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:
- Understand if I am not able to answer your questions.
- Please do not ask a question that you can research online.
- Please do not ask about changing my recipe as I only make them the way I post them.
- If a recipe didn’t turn out, please look at the FAQs before asking what went wrong.
- 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 who jumps in to answer questions to help out. – Jenny Jones
Jenny i love your recipes but mostly your method of cooking.You made my day when you had a fluffy stuffed puppy on your show,it started laughing it was hilarius,and rolling over on its back and laughing.Please tell me were i can purchase one.Thank you for all your jokes ,it lifts my day with a good laugh.God Bless You
I just made these cookies for the second time, I cut back on both sugars, but the ingredients are very dry and extremely difficult to roll into a ball, they fall apart, I far as I am concerned there is not enough liquid to keep it together, 1 egg and 1/2 c oil, not enough for all those dry ingredients. and suggestions.
Hi Jenny I asked this question in the March General tab but I think I should have asked the question here.
I was wondering if you could let me know where you purchased the different coloured mats that you use to do your work on in your videos. They look like lightweight silicone but I’m not sure what they are made of. I would like to purchase a few but I’m having trouble finding them that large. I’m in Toronto, and was wondering if you could advise where I might find them. Thanks
I think they are the flexible cutting boards from Bed Bath & Beyond.
Jenny, please help. I’m a polish cook like you. I learned from my mother and grandmother, however, now. Seem to be having a problem with my sniffed cabbage. The cabbage leaves are nice no soft but the lean ground meat mixture comes out tough. What could I be doing wrong? I cook mine on top of the stove in a heavy Dutch oven, I’m perplexed please help if you can. I’ve tried baking and I’ve tried a slow cooker too – still tough. I’m tearing my hair out. The ones from stouffers are more tender, is there a secret to getting the meat to be tender?
Frustrated Polish Cook Barbara
You didn’t say if you tried one layer in a 13 by 9-inch pan in the oven, the way I make them. I just wonder if you are overcooking them. In any case, if you follow the recipe exactly, and not change anything, they will turn out.
is it possible to make no-knead bread in air fryer?
I make a lot of your recipes because they are healthy, quick, and delicious. As a single person, it is very important to be able to have healthy nutritious meals every night. You help make that possible, so thank you.
Do you have a shepherds pie recipe? I know it may not be an exact fit with your usual style of quick & easy, but I know it would be delicious.
I’ve looked all over on the internet and can’t seem to find the answer to this.
In your Easy simple whole wheat bread you say we can use rapid or traditional yeast. Do you think I could use both mixed together as I only have 5 grams of rapid and 4 of traditional?
Your recipes look awesome!!!
Thanks for recipe. It comes in handy during these trying times and I look forward to making in the upcoming Fall and Winter months. My first loaf didnt turn out but I’m gonna have to blame it on being distracted by 3 yr old kitchen helper and adding too much water. My 2nd loaf was beautiful and yum. Dough a little dry but I did not aerate Bread was dense but like I said yum. Will continue to try minor adjustments till I get to how I like. Again thanks.
Jenny we just love your no knead bread recipe and have made it a few times I am questioning if the 35 minutes with the towel for the dough to rest or more for the Dutch oven to heat up for 35 minutes. It takes my oven 15 minutes to reach 450. Is it necessary for it to be in oven the 35 minutes.
Thank you for the great recipes!
In case Jenny doesn’t have time to answer… I’ve made this over 30 times for myself and friends. I do leave it under the towel 35 minutes. I start my oven then even though it heats up in less time. I read on other sites where they let their pot heat an hour, so unless you just don’t want to use extra electricity, the bread will be crustier. I’ve used the slow method, faster method, and the extra fast method using more yeast all with great results. The extra yeast method is a softer bread so it’s my least favorite. I’ve made several of her recipes with great success. If you haven’t read her bio page, please do. She’s not just a pretty, funny woman she’s a great person. The world needs more like her!
Jenny, you’re my go-to recipe book for pastry’s, breads and sweets. I’m a 77 y/o widower in British Columbia, Canada. Have you ever made, or wanted a good, fresh Raspberry Pie? My mother used to make these, but I do not have her recipe, so being that you are my guru, I’m looking your way. Thank you for reading this.
In Homemade Cinnamon Rolls’s recipe, on step 4, how long does it take to knead, if using machine?
This is my family’s favorite Cinnamon Rolls, always & forever!
Thanks for sharing!
Merely want to thank you for sharing your no knead bread recipes. Neither my partner nor I have ever made bread before making a Dutch oven loaf after watching your super helpful & encouraging video. We’ll never again buy bread! Next I want to try your flour tortillas ?. I think you are an amazing woman with a most interesting history. THANK YOU ?
Jenny, love you and everything you do. I cannot find a recipe for no knead loaf pan bread. Hopefully you have one or will come to one soon.
Thanks so much
Hi Jenny I’m 9 years old and I love watching your cooking videos. Once I tried making the velvet cupcake ? and used vanilla milk instead and I didn’t have vanilla extract then I thought the frosting was good it but when I tried it with the cupcake it was not what expected ??? but I learned from that and now your recipes are making me a better chef ?? I watched your videos since I was 6 and never got old of them❤️❤️❤️
Jenny, I am retired and spend most of my time going over recipes I have and cooking. I ran across you site and enjoy very much. My question: You use specific pans for certain recipes;I follow you recipes to the letter but I don;t have a lot of the type pans you use so I substitute what I have. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Does it make that much difference in the various recipes in the pans you use or am I just not doing them correctly(which is entirely possible). So, back to the question of type of pans. Thanks. Jim
Hi Jenny, I love your use of colorful happy kitchen items and wondered if you have a product line? Thank you!
No, I do not sell anything or make paid endorsements. I just post my recipes from my love of cooking.
Can I use a mixer with your no knead bread. thanks
Jenny. My wife lovvvvvvvvvvveeesss your cooking show and I, the husband, lovvvvveeeeeee her recipes from you. I guess I love you too lol!
I noticed on one of your shows that you have these super duper awesome pink over gloves!
Okay, what are they and where can I buy some? Are they on Amazon?
I think I got them at Bed, Bath & Beyond but they don’t have a name tag.
Do you make fish meatballs (pulpety rybne), at home? Have you ever tried to and are willing to share? I don’t expect an answer, but will keep watching and hoping.h
Jenny I love following your videos. Will you be doing some of your other recipes on video?
I just wanted to know if I make bread dough can I store it and if so how would I do that. Thank you so much. I made my first bread yesterday and it is a hit. I would like to make more for family but want to store dough to be ready. Thank you…. Judy
you are fabulous jenny. thank you for everything you do. if i can help in any way do not hesitate to ask.
Do you have a receipt of how to fried a chicken ? I like to know what is the best way to fried it . I want to please my wife if I can .
Sorry, I do not have a fried chicken recipe.
HI JENNY, I HAE MADE SEVERAL OF YOUR RECIPES WITH SUCCESS. I WANT TO MAKE WHITE LOAF BREAD BUT I DON’T HAVE A DOUGH MIXER, OR A BREAD MACHINE.
APPRECIATE FEED BACK
You can mix the dough by hand but you will have to knead longer until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Hi Jenny, just found you on YouTube. I love your quick easy recipes. You really have that personality of a friend and neighbor. I’ve seen the others but yours is fun. Love the title. Jenny, if you can cook, so can I. I love your cute decor especially your different timers. Also the chicken. Very home feel. Looked to see if you made a custard. I’d like to make a custard today. Plus an upside down cake. Never made a custard. Plus a meringue. Is meringue the same as marshmallow? I’d love to make my own but finding a marshmallow recipe is hard. As an example, Recipes say to use , use 12 marshmallow. Well, anyone can do that but I’d like tomorrow make mine or at least give it a go. Arlene.
Thanks for your show. Your my favorite besides British bake off.
I made your chocolate sweet potato cake using well drained canned sweet potatoes, turned out delicious! I’m going to try to cut the Dutch Baby pancake recipe in half, I only have me to cook for, hope it turns out good!
Thanks for your recipes, so far all I’ve tried have been very good!
Baking isn’t really my thing.
Love your show and you made cooking so easy to follow, specially breads
keep up the good work, you seem to be a low down to earth person love your comments on the show…God bless you and give you the strength to stay on many more years to come…..JC
Thank you from London Ontario
I really like your style of cooking & baking. I’ve tried many things & have not been dissapointed. I want to try your 90 minute whole wheat bread, but I only have a glass bread pan. Will it work?
Just a quick note to say I adore you and your whimsical touch in the kitchen. I love that you always match! I’ve been told that is a “thing” with Aquarians like me (I always match). Thank you for the delicious and fun cooking videos. Happy Thanksgiving.
I’m another fan of yours from Canada. I’ve made so many of your recipes which always turn out great. Every time I make something new, my husband says, “ is this Jennys recipe”? He also says he loves your “buns” when I make them. Lol
I must say you look amazing for 73. It doesn’t look like you wear much makeup. Your a natural beauty. What’s your secret? I hope it doesn’t cost $300 a jar. Haha ! Oh, and your philanthropy work truly touches our hearts. Jeanne
Thanks for your note. I wear sunscreen every day, even the cloudy ones and I think my healthy diet has a lot to do with my skin. Besides cooking my own meals and desserts, I don’t drink soft drinks or eat any packaged or junk foods. On my skin I use some drug store products, some from the beauty supply, and an occasional expensive moisturizer. I use a scrub twice a week, and every morning and night I use a serum (always trying different ones) and moisturizer. (The older I get, the more I’m willing to spend on a good moisturizer!)
Thank you for sharing your awesomeness with the world – you’re my hero!
Funny name ?

Love your recipes!!!
Do you plan on any dairy free recipes. I have just recently found out that dairy is the culprit of my cystic acne and I have stopped all dairy. Big Bummer but I am glad my acne is getting better!!
We don’t use milk however we have replaced it with almond milk as we try to
stay away from soy because it bothers my wife not good;. Hope this will be of
I think you are amazing Jenny! I love, love, love watching your cooking and comedy videos. You are truly an inspiring human. Thank you!!! Cindy
I though that you retired to make more recipes for us as we love them.
I use apple juice instead of sugar for the apple recipes
I just found you web site and made your donuts recipe yum! yum! made a pot
of coffee and ate half the recipe so good!
Jenny, what a great web-site and YouTube presence. I’m a divorced guy (2x losser) LOLO My girlfriend and I are always looking to good easy things to fix for dinner and evenings with friends…we love your ideas…the hash browns are the bomb!!! This weekend I’m going for all the bread ideas…thanks for sharing. I have to be honest, how do you do all this on your own, you must have a staff that helps…it’s OK you can share, we don’t care…glad you’re doing it…you’re the best…keep it going….”BOZO”
Thanks for the nice note. And it is just me, no staff, no assistant but it’s something I enjoy.
TC (totally cool)…I worked on the bread this weekend. the 1/4 tsp yeast was not enough. I increased it to 1/2 tsp yeast and it was excellent. Then I used one packet of yeast and it was the best, my girlfriend is getting a ‘Dutch Oven’ for valentines….LOLOLOLO…Jim (the cop prof)
love your bread recipes they are simple and always consistent would you have a Naan Bread recipe that works every time.Plenty on internet,haven’t found one yet that is consistent
Here’s my flatbread: https://www.jennycancook.com/recipes/quick-easy-flatbread/
Jenny!!! I just discovered you and looooove your recipes! And… my all time favorite actress is Suranne Jones and I just found out she is your daughter!!! Aargh! I am speechless. I can’t believe it. I have watched nearly everything she has acted in. Sooo beautiful and incredibly talented. What a wonderful family you have. Question… since I spend my days reading your recipes… can a person gain weight by just thinking of food?
I have no children. This actress’s mother is a different Jenny Jones from England, but I’m so glad you’re enjoying my recipes.
Oops…sorry. You should check out the actress’s bio. Your beautiful picture is shown as her mom! Thanks for the quick response.
Here’s a tip when baking bread in Dutch oven. I purchased the 8 inch Lodge cast iron trivet from Amazon for less than $8. Put it in the Dutch oven when you’re heating it up. Put your parchment paper and dough on the trivet. The bottom of the loaf comes out perfect every time. Thank you, Jenny, for all you do!
Thanks for the tip!
Have tried your bread recipes… and they work beautifully for me. I searched your site for HOT DOG and HAMBURGER BUNS…
OMG… NONE! I guess I’ll try using your W/W bread recipe and see what happens.
Thanks a lot!
Search the blog too: https://www.jennycancook.com/i-made-sandwich-buns/
I want to make poppyseed rolls like grandparents made when I was little girl. Saw you put seeds into spice grinder so will need to look like one of those… I had just bought the manual grinder last year but looked for recipe. NOW, where do I get poppyseeds? And have not found a spice grinder yet; any recommendations on that too? Thanks! God Bless!!! xo… Peg
Just recently came across your website. Have been trying several of the recipes and love them. so delicious.
Love watching your videos.
I don’t see it anywhere, maybe I’m not looking in the right place. But I do want to share, especially for my fellow apartment dwellers, that if their dishes, especially their breads, did not seem to turn out right, and you can’t figure out why, consider that the oven you’re using may not be in sync with the knob on the controls. Suggest you consider buying a cheap oven thermometer so you can ensure you’ve got the right temp and can monitor such during baking. Thank you, Ms Jones! Love your recipes and your smile! Namaste and God Bless!
Do you have any live chat rooms? I wanna ask you some questions.
Just wanted to say that Im so happy for you Jenny I used to watch your show all of the time very glad that you have other talents that keep you blessed finacially i dont have social media so i guess i can google your recipes
I LOVE you. You make cooking fun and so simple.
Please, I never know which shelf to put my oven rack on. Is there a rule of thumb? Everything I read is different. Please help me.
Keep doing what you’re doing, you are the best.
Love from Florida.?
It’s always in the middle unless otherwise specified.
Dear Jen: Love your recipes. Would love a recipe for breaded chicken breasts, Polish style. I think your recipe would be the best. Thank you for all your fine cooking and baking. Love it.
I totally understand! And, I agree. We all love you! You are an amazing woman and so very sweet! Thank you for all you do!!
You can’t please everyone by being on top of your game. It takes the fun away from you for what you are doing. Please try not being sad and just stay focused on what you do for us and keep rolling at your own pace. You didn’t even have to start this, so we should be grateful you and your recipes exist for us to make. Do what you want for your own pleasure. If you’re not your best we won’t get the full fun and enjoyment of it either…
Take care, Jenny…
The no knead crusty rolls are great. I have experimented and swapped out half white whole wheat flour…and I double the recipe. I freeze the baked rolls and pull out, however many I need for a meal. One minute defrost in the microwave..perfect.
Hi Jenny . Love your recipes especially your oil based cake recipes. How much AP Flour do I need to use if the recipe has 1.5 cups vegetable oil? The recipe says 2 cups. Please Help. Love your one layer yellow cake recipe.
I’m sorry I am not able to help with this limited information.
Holy moly! Wanted a rib recipe and watched your video, the whole time thinking you were familiar to me and then… Jenny Jones, OMG!!! Making your ribs tomorrow. I love you and happy we got back together!
Hi Jenny! I love your recipes!!
My son was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy. I’m wondering if you have any ‘gluten free’ recipes.
Hope you enjoyed your summer vaca!!
Thank you and best regards,
All my recipes are here.
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.
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 🙂
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
Sorry, I am not familiar with this recipe.
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.
You should find the answers by looking at my many versions of bread recipes.
Hi Jenny. I love your recipes and all of your beautiful colors, I especially like your aprons and headscarfs, I have looked all over the internet for colorful aprons like yours and I cant find them, can you please tellme how I can find aprons and headscarves like yours, Thanks Debbie
How do I unsubscribe to your web site?
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! ?? ?
As a fellow cook, you must know the hard felt desire for real cooking.
More programs and recipes please!!!!
Hi …. loved your t v show and now your videos! I’ve started cooking again because of finding your YouTube videos . Thanks so much!
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.
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 🙂
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
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!
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
OOPS! I almost forgot , your Pacz Thanks again for all you do for all of us .ki recipe was a huge hit here for Easter weekend ! Just a few weeks ago I finally found the tip you need for filling them ! I went to so many places looking for it my husband was ready to forget he knew me ! BUT , they were so good he humored me long enough ’til I found it !
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!!
