"Food, Cooking & Fun"

As a journalist, Jennifer will share what she has learned about food to help you eat better, reduce spending, and waste less food. She has researched and written on diverse food topics such as popcorn, local Wisconsin foods, cheese, bison, family-owned grocers, cooking for one, milk, vanilla, butter, grass-fed food, bulk bins, heritage grains & pork, butcher shops, breakfast cereal, organic food, and sugar. Jennifer appreciates simplicity when cooking and writes her articles to help consumers make wise, satisfying choices with their food dollars while featuring small, local farmers. Find out what Jennifer scrimps on . . . and what she splurges on when cooking. Favorite recipes will be shared.
