About Me

Hello friends! My name is Jennifer and I love food! I live in Toronto with my wonderful husband and 2 kids. We have a cute little Siamese cat (Snowflake), and an amazing dog (Casper). Aside from food, I also love Zentangle, paper bead and jewellery making, sewing, crochet, gardening, and watching documentaries.

MANY years ago, I found myself posting pictures of the food I was making on Facebook. I'd include the recipes in my posts in case my friends were interested in trying them out. I also wanted to keep track of my favourites so I wouldn't have to go far to find them again. Back then, Facebook had a 200 image limit on their albums. Once I approached the limit, I decided I needed a better way to keep track of my favourite recipes. That's when this blog was born.

I've been on all the different diets including Weight Watchers and South Beach. You may notice that some of the recipes I have on this blog include point values or calories. I don't count anything anymore, so any new recipes will not include those values. There are some great apps and websites out there that will calculate the nutritional information for you though. You can just plug a recipe in, and the information will magically appear. You can use Calorie Count to get started. 


All of the photos on my blog are taken by me unless otherwise stated. If I adapt a recipe from another source, the original source will be noted, and a link (if available) added to my post. If you choose to borrow my images or adapt recipes from my blog, please provide a link back to me. jennys-cookbook.blogspot.com

  3. Hi Jenny ,

    I am Raquel from eRecipe.com, and one of your newest follower. I just recently read the Corn and Mushroom risotto recipe, and I found it delicious, I love risotto I think if I put too much garlic and cheese taste more delicious lol, but it depends, it so happens that I love parmesan cheese and garlic. it's like I am eating pizza =) I also scrolled your other entry and found it interesting.

    BTW I'm here because first, I want you to know I like your blog there is a lot of good recipes that I can choose and cook for my family, and second I would like you to try our free nutrition calculator located at eRecipe.com our site. It is easy to use when you enter your recipe, it will generate nutritional data, you can copy and paste the widget on your blog for the corresponding recipe. Just click on "Get Widget code NOR" located below the nutritional value of each recipe.

    Our detailed recipe nutrition calculator provides detailed information on recipe caloric ratio, carbohydrate break down, fats & fatty acids, sterols, protein and amino acids, vitamins, minerals and other relevant information. Specific dietary needs and second-guessing if recipes meet them can now be a thing of the past with the help of our detailed nutrition facts.
