Well… here goes nothin’!
I suppose I’ll start with the basics. My name is Jenn, or Jennifer if you want to get formal with it. But, I’d like to think over the course of my blog you’ll start to look as me as a friend; so let’s stick with Jenn.
I’m 29, with my Dirty 30 rapidly approaching this year. I live in South Florida with my boyfriend, Steve and our meathead English Bulldog, Devito. I have a strong passion for food, family, fun and fitness. I suppose one would refer to me as a gym rat. But, we’ll get more into that in a bit.
My first memory of my love for all things food and cooking was probably when I was about 10 years old. Living in Southern California at the time, my brothers and sisters were playing dress-up and my mom was in the kitchen prepping away for Turkey Day. Mmmmm! Anyway, back to reality… I vividly remember sitting on the counter and helping my mom bake pies, asking questions about what, when, how and why she was doing everything. From there, a little chef and self-acclaimed (dare I say it) foodie was born.
Since then, I’ve done a culinary apprenticeship, cooked in multiple restaurants, owned a bakery and still own a little private chef & meal planning company- Cocktails and Crumbs. I’ve honed in on my skills, learned my likes and dislikes; distinguished the good from the bad and built a healthy, balanced lifestyle full of food, laughter, fitness and fun.
Stick with me on my journey of becoming the best version of myself, while living the life I love. And with that, I’ll give you the fitness tips, tools and delicious recipes to help you have a healthy mind, body & full belly.
