Hi and welcome to all about Savor with Jennifer!
I’m Jennifer – A wife, mother of three, gardener, book devour-er, and passionate food lover from Missouri.
I whole heartedly believe the old adage that food brings people together. Coming together as a family to share a meal is one of the most important parts of my family’s day. Sometimes my kiddos and I bond and share in the creation process, sometimes cooking is a solitary escape to re-establish my sanity.
I grew up in a large, boisterous family where dinner preparation and clean up was shared by all. Cooking was a multi-generational event and everyone always thought their opinion was the correct way. Sometimes I listen to my father’s favorite acronym KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid!), but more often then not, the constant ambition to create, explore, improve, and savor has led me down the path that I’m on today. I love being inspired by fresh, seasonal ingredients and always prefer whole and minimally processed over prepackaged. While quick and easy always has a place, and I have a lot of simple weeknight recipes, sometimes it’s worth a little extra effort when you hear “Mom, that was the BEST cake I’ve ever has!” or “Wow! That was INCREDIBLE! Can I have your recipe?” from your friends. It just melts my heart.
The love and passion of family, friends, and food and is what inspired me to start this blog. Always striving to elevate my recipes, getting my hands dirty in my vegetable garden, taking a nap with a book in a hammock, enjoying the sunrise on a pontoon at the lake, traveling and exploring new places and cultures, watching my children grow and change, all of this and so much more is just an invitation to savor life. I hope you will enjoy Savor with Jennifer.
