I'm single in SF cooking for 1, and most often, for a few friends. I try and make whatever is in my kitchen work for me for 1 or more!

Happy to share that I"ve just launched a blog on cooking/lifestyle in san francisco. I posted quite a few entries complete with photos that will make it easy for you to cook on your own, model what I do, or improvise along the way.
Cooking is a passion of mine, after watching my grandmother cook for years. She is truly my inspiration and spirit in the kitchen. After spending a few years and a lot of time, snapping pix, I thought to share in a different way. I’m not always an original. But often I take 5-8 recipes into consideration for ideas, and then Jennize it, making it a little more mine. I’ve learned from trial and error, and I’m definitely not afraid to try. I most often cook something original and tend not to repeat. Makes for interesting situations in the kitchen and often surprisingly good results! I also adore dining out, so I’ll be “checking-in” and sharing those experiences as well. I grew up eating very simple food in the heart of Ohio and have expanded my tastes and selections via influences of international travel, access to fabulous produce locally and of course the ever-evolving menus in San Francisco.
When I first lived in SF in 2000 I started throwing once a year dinner parties, inviting my closest friends where I’d cook up 6-8 dishes from scratch. Over time I’ve toned down a bit, but believe there is nothing better than homemade from your own kitchen and I challenge myself to make it on my own. As I get older I am really trying to avoid or minimize process foods as is reasonable.
