Welcome To Picky Palate!

I’m Jenny, the girl behind the computer and camera who absolutely loves being a food blogger.

I am an on the go, stay at home mom to two little boys–make that three as of September 2012–with picky little palates, a wife since 1997 to my high school sweetie, a retired dental hygienist, and former Stott Pilates instructor.

My love of cooking didn’t get started until my husband and I got our first home back in 2001, where I realized I didn’t have the foggiest idea of what to do in my new kitchen! That led me to read countless cookbooks and watch cooking show after cooking show on Food Network.  In all of my experimenting and studying, I found my real passion which is creating and writing my own recipes.  In 2004, I started entering cooking competitions on a whim, and had a blast competing in competitions of all kinds for a few years.

Picky Palate started as just a baby late in 2007 and has grown to be more fun than I had imagined. This is a place where I share not only recipes for the kids picky palates but for adults too. I love writing family friendly recipes since this is the phase of life I’m in right now. I know how boring the same recipes can get week after week, so it is my goal to provide new and exciting dishes to bring to your kitchen tables.

You’ll also find family friendly reviews and giveaways, restaurants that we frequent in California and Arizona, and reviews of Disneyland restaurants.

My very first cookbook with Wiley Publishing is now available. Order it on Amazon HERE and Barnes and Noble HERE and Deseret Book HERE.

Thanks for visiting, hope you’ll come back soon.
