So many of my dear friends are working in the food blogging world.
And I love that I get the chance to not only see their dreams of getting published come true, but also to interview them and see their finished product come to life.
Jenny of the famous family cooking oriented food blog Picky Palate recently published her first cookbook.
I couldn't be happier for her. How she managed to create this cookbook while pregnant is beyond me.
Jenny is a self-taught home cook and an on the go mom to 3 boys and wife to her high school sweetie. Creating original recipes and capturing food photography is Jenny's passion, and she loves sharing her journey with her readers. Picky Palate has been featured on sites such as Saveur.com, BettyCrocker.com, Finecooking.com and Shine by Yahoo. Jenny was born and raised in AZ but now lives in Southern California with her family.
What is Picky Palate blog all about?
It's a popular food blog that is geared toward parents who need meals in a flash while entertaining those children (adults too!) who have, well, picky palates!
What is The Picky Palate Cookbook about?
All-time favorites from the blog along with nearly 100 exclusive new dishes accompanied by enticing full-color photographs.
About 128 total recipes, both favorites from the blog and brand-new from Jenny's kitchen.
Recipes for your own picky palate, finicky families, and some of the best solutions for dull family meals.
Jenny was also really kind enough to giveaway 3 cookbooks!
See the end of the interview on how to enter.
Jenny, first off congrats on the cookbook. I loved how its laid out with a binder-like book, easy to turn pages, and the contents are so well laid out with (just like the book says ‘something for everyone’) breakfast, party food ideas, home is where the chicken dinner is, gone fishin, you’ll never miss the beef, sweet tooth, and bake sale ideas! Perfect way to lay out a cookbook when you have fussy eaters in the house. But what I loved most was the opening line of introduction: “Had no idea I’d become such a foodie!” Amazing what you learn, grow to love, and want to share once you start a food blog. And for you, that’s kind of where you started all this? Was a food blog?
Did most of your research for the cookbook come from your family?
What foods do you have a hard time creating new recipes with?
It was so much fun. They still play the re-runs.
Jenny thank you so much for the interview.
