Hi! My name is Jillian. I am a food lover who grew up on TV dinners, and eating out at restaurants. I always liked gathering in the kitchen, while others were cooking.

I also create with paint, my camera, and write poetry. I am married to a wonderful man who is ironically a formerly trained chef. We have two loving, wonderful, imaginative, high spirited girls, with great leadership skills, and big appetites, who also love to eat and enjoy tasty food.

About six years ago,  I started cooking food that was either inedible or barely edible. I was extremely frustrated and just kept practicing. Just in the last couple years, I have thoroughly enjoyed being in the kitchen, as the cook. I love making daily beautiful, healthy, flavorful meals, ans sharing them with family and friends.

I am blessed to live in the Pacific Northwest, and to have amazingly fresh, organic produce available most of the year. I still struggle at times, with barely edible creations, but I get back in the kitchen and try it again.  I am now truly, thankfully living a food filled life.
