selfie take 2 023

New picture updated 9/16/15. I realized the ones I had posted previously were from like 2 years ago. And no I am not fat.



Hey everyone, I’m Jenna. The owner of this food blog! Born and raised in a town called Fargo, ND. Maybe you’re familiar with it, and have seen the movie Fargo?

I’m also the photographer and sometimes recipe developer.  I am a self taught cook and learned how to cook by watching Food Network. I’m constantly watching the Food Network and Cooking Channel after I come home from work. I will often times get a lot of inspiration from the different chefs and my favorites are Ina Garten, Bobby Flay, the Pioneer Women, and Trisha Yearwood. I also get inspiration from going to different restaurants, food magazines, and Pinterest.

My favorite food to eat is breakfast. ANY TYPE of breakfast food. Pancakes, Eggs, Sausage, Bacon, Waffles, Muffins, you name it. I could have breakfast for dinner any time of the day.  A lot of times, I’ll just come home at nights and make eggs and hash browns for dinner.

This site started off as a Weight Watcher recipe blog, but then I got tired (well, technically, I stopped following Weight Watchers) of that and wanted to expand my horizons and cook more than just lighter meals. Most of the recipes you can adapt to make lighter on my page even if they don’t look like low fat meals.

When I’m not watching Food Network, some of my favorite shows are the Vampire Diaries (part of the reason why this blog name came to be), Reign, and the Walking Dead. HUGE Walking Dead fan here. I can not get enough of that show and the characters.

I also love to work out and do some physical activities at the gym. I do pretty much everything from Spin, to Yoga, and Boot Camp. Been thinking about joining a swim team lately.
