Hi, I'm Jackie!
I love to cook healthy, delicious, fun, and colorful food. This blog will be my creative outlet for recipes and ideas I come up with.
I am one of many teens who seek after a career in the culinary arts, but I am also one of the few who loves to focus on food that is healthy and nutritious. I spend my time creating new recipes and recipe "makeovers", reading helathy cooking and nutrition books, and learning about fresh produce and environmental movements from my local farmer's markets.
I am lucky enough to live very close to Washington, D.C., allowing me to visit one of the best foodie cities in the country at any time. I love exploring new ethnic restaurants, visiting Eastern Market, and walking around the city just to enjoy the fact that I am in my nation's capitol.
Aside from cooking, fashion is my other love. I'm a very creative person, and anything regarding the arts interests me, though I would have to say that cooking is my true calling. If for any reason I couldn't follow my pursuits of a career in the culinary arts, I would become a fashion designer, jewelry maker, personal shopper, or store buyer in a heartbeat.
While I love shopping for clothes, it takes the back burner to shopping for food, so here I will share with you my favorite food experiences, and hopefully give you some great ideas too.
