About Jen


Hi, I’m Jen. I was born and raised at the Jersey Shore and I have the beach in my blood. author bio pic

My husband and I live in a little house with a big yard across the street from a lagoon. We live here with our tween daughter Ayla, and our 3 fur babies – Roger (cat), Duke (mutt) and Sonny (Golden Retriever).

We love gardening, home improvement projects, cooking and entertaining at home.

I am obsessed with food and I try to create and share as many healthy, plant based recipes as possible.  I want to show you that making vegan food can be EASY and quick and way better than fast food. I also want to prove that a vegan diet is so much more than salad!

Here are a few of my favorite recipes:

Sweet and Spicy Tofu Buddha Bowl

Vegan Nachos Supreme

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Frosting (vegan)

When not working in the kitchen or in my garden, I can be found at the beach,or getting together with friends and family for food and wine on our party porch.

I hope you will enjoy my adventures and misadventures in making my house a home, raising my family and entertaining my friends.  If you aren’t lucky enough to live at the beach yourself I hope you can feel the relaxed vibe of shore living when you visit me here.
