I'm Jen- happily married to a wonderful guy. We have 2 beautiful children. Besides being a wife and mom, I am also a full-time critical care nurse manager. I'm always trying to find creative ways to juggle life as a busy career mom! We have a 13 year old Yorkie named Sassy who is always happy to eat some of my failed cooking experiments.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy taking recipes and tweaking them to make them more healthful and specific to my tastes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family and my husband's family get together for Thanksgiving, and everyone makes their signature dish, which ends up being A LOT of delicious food!!
My cooking triumphs
Successfully lightening up my husband's favorite dish of Cajun Chicken Pasta. Also, this delicious pork tenderloin w/ an olive caper sauce. Most recently,I have finally perfected seared scallops and seared tuna. I love seafood!
My cooking tragedies
I once made a seafood lasagne that ended up giving my husband and I food poisoning from bad shrimp. In my defense, I was VERY young and inexperienced in the kitchen. I'd like to think I've come a long way.
