About Me

Thanks for stopping by!  This blog is going to showcase a number of original recipes, recipes found on the Internet, funny/cringe-worthy stories about my kids, and whatever else I feel like sharing with you fine folks.

My name is Jenn and I live in Central Oregon, where I teach English at a local high school. I will begin my 10th year of teaching in the fall.

Almost exactly four years ago, I married my best friend, Henry, and together we are wrangling a 10, 7, and almost three year old, with the help of the co-parent of the older two. It’s quite an adventure.

I love food–and one day, after I’m grown up, I want to open my own breakfast/lunch restaurant.  I am constantly cooking and eating.  Well, I breathe and talk and parent sometimes, too 🙂 Cooking for loved ones is a way for me to relax and show my people how much they mean to me.

I’m also a new Girl Scout Troop Leader, which I absolutely love! My best friend and and I are in charge of a troop of Juniors and Cadettes. We are a relatively new troop and are just learning the ropes so far. But I have to tell you–even though I am already stretched thin with family and work, Girl Scouts has reinvigorated my love of kids and teaching. We are rocking it!

I’m glad you found me and I hope you stick around!
