Hi, I'm Jillian! I'm a writer, photographer, and food-lover all rolled into one.
Nobody ever taught me the difference between a teaspoon and tablespoon or how to braise or broil. But a few years ago I picked up a cookbook for the first time and I thought "hey, this looks like fun!" And then I started to cook. The rest is history. I'm no expert, I'm still learning. But I'm having fun along the way. Life is an adventure (or mis-adventure), you try, you learn, you eat. And when I'm taking a break from making small fires in the kitchen you can find me dining out and trying new foods!
Books are my passion (and that includes cookbooks.) I currently have nearly 25 cookbooks that span everything from smoothies to bbq to Polish cuisine to soups to casseroles. I love dining out just as much as I love to cook and I am always eager to find new places to eat. I enjoy everything from comfort foods to fancy stuff.... my motto: I'll try (nearly) anything once!
I joined my first ever CSA/farm share last summer where I learned A TON about new veggies that I had never heard of before, and learned that I don't like beets.
Keep up to date about what I'm eating/cooking by "following" me.
