Hello world!

Posted by jenskitchen on May 7, 2009

This is my first post. I would love to make it a great one – full of all my thoughts, dreams, and hopes for this blog. Of course, I’m trying to post in between cleaning, planning and prepping dinner, and getting the laundry done – all during my little one’s nap time (which have been unfortunately short lately).

I’m here to document my journey as I learn to cook so that I can feed myself and my two boys. I’ll be focusing on whole foods that are family friendly and appropriate for those of us on the Atkins diet. That’s just how I eat!

I’ve also joined the Daring Bakers and Daring Cooks. So, sometimes you’ll find something that’s more of an eating adventure – it’s all part of my journey to slow down and learn to cook, while spending more time with my kids.

    Hey Jen, I look forward to reading your blog and getting some great tips on cooking low carb foods.

    Is there a subscription button to your website?

      I have no idea if there is a subscription button Terry – I’ll look into that. Look for some recipes later this week – I’ve planned my first one to be the about the co-op veggies and the Roasted Ratatouille that tasted (and looked) amazing made from my co-op treasures : )

      I’m so glad you stopped by! My little sous chefs have been so helpful lately – I can’t wait to start sharing all the great food experiments we’ve tried!

      Thanks for checking me out! I’ve been snapping pictures and trying my hand at descriptive writing (my poor mathematical brain is being pushed to it’s limit!) Pictures and recipes to come!

    Hi Jen,

    The recipes and pictures look fabulous! And no one better believe Jen when she says she’s pushing her descriptive writing to the limit… you should have seen her write our amazing children’s veggie stories on those late Atkins nights 🙂

    I’ve so enjoyed our Atkins journey together Jen… and now I get to enjoy more of your creative cooking ideas … I’ll come back with comments after I try the recipes!
