Welcome to My Kitchen Addiction…

I’m Jen, and this is my little corner of the web.  I am the head cook (not a professional chef!), recipe developer, food stylist, photographer, writer, and editor here at My Kitchen Addiction.  Simply put, I run the show… And, I’ve been doing it all since January 2009.

I started blogging as a way to keep track of my recipes – sort of an online recipe journal, if you will.  Plus, I knew it would be a great way to share recipes with my friends and family (sure beats writing out recipe cards!).  Over time, my audience has grown (a lot).  I am grateful for the doors that have opened as a result of my site, but I still also cherish each comment and email.

For me, blogging is all about the community.  I have a passion for cooking and baking for those that I love.  When you take the people out of it, though, it’s just not the same.  I feel the same way about my blog… I do it because I want to share my love of food with others. It’s all about community.

My Kitchen Addiction is an honest glimpse into my kitchen and my life. I write about the food that I am preparing on a daily basis for my friends and family (typically my husband and our yellow lab, who is appropriately named Yellowdog). I do my best to cook with fresh, local ingredients (though, I know I am far from perfect).  I do the majority of my cooking and baking from scratch because it allows me to control the quality of the food I serve to my family.  I believe that cooking and baking doesn’t have to be complicated, and it is my goal to present each recipe in an approachable manner.

Thanks for stopping by… I hope you’ll pull up a chair and join me in the kitchen!
