Welcome to The Gingered Whisk! These are tales of the adventures that happen in my kitchen, however messy they might be.
So who am I?
My name is Jenni.
I am a ginger, naturally!
I wear cowboy boots and pearls.
I'm addicted to cardigans, I seriously love them!
I like to play in the dirt and grow things. I know what a hard day's work is all about and I am not afraid to get dirty to do it. At the end of the day I like to step back and look and say "Wow, look what I accomplished today!"
I always have my toenails painted, but can never keep my fingernails painted for more than 5 minutes. It just isn't possible!
I love biology, chemistry, and history - I am a nerd and proud of it!! I would love to be an archeologist. Or a photographer/writer for National Geographic.
I loooove zombie movies!
If I have free time and am not in the kitchen, you can find me curled up somewhere reading a book. I love everything from non-fiction to science fiction (Check out My Inspiration Page for some good recommendations!)
I love my cast iron skillets and a good wooden spoon, although I am fairly fond of my KitchenAid, too.
I would have pancakes for dinner every night, if I could get away with it!
Our puppies were our children before we had children.
Scout can always be found under a pile of blankets, so please watch where you sit. He is stubborn and shy, and loves to cuddle. He likes to steal Peanut's toys and disembowel them. And he barks. At everything. But being a half Beagle half Jack Russell Terrier, we can't really blame him.
Peanut is too smart for his own good. He truly believes that he is a human, and wants to be treated as such. He cares for his toys like they are his babies. We have no idea what breed Peanut is. He actually came from the bush of Alaska where Joel's parents used to teach. We once did a DNA test on him for dogs, and the company sent us a coupon because they had no idea what he was. He is our own special breed.
This is Munchkin. She is our little spitfire. She never sleeps, she makes her opinions well known, and she is a sweet cuddly girl.
My photos are what I like to call "real" - on my dishes, seconds away from being in my mouth. I am the world's worst food stylist, and I know it. Haha
So this is me. This is the food that we actually eat, in the house that we actually eat it in, and the stories that go along with them. It isn't fancy, but its mine, and I would like to share it with you!
I'm so glad you stopped by, and please come again! Please feel free to email me if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say Hi!
