Baking, Mexican Food, Reworking Recipes For Better Taste And Nutrition
  • Jennifer bakes for friends and local events so often that not only has she been asked to open a bakery or home delivery service, but once singlehandedly baked 1500 cookies for a local theater gala.
  • She idolized Julia Child and has watched every episode of "The French Chef" more than once. Child's recipes are the only ones Jennifer follows to the letter.
  • Jennifer has become obsessed with Tik Tok food trends and loves trying new recipes. She recommends recipes to family and friends only after tweaking their flavor or nutrition profile.


Jennifer has been a freelance writer since 2014, writing copy and content for dozens of websites. She loves learning new things and researching topics to help clients and joined the Mashed team in 2022 as a features writer. Writing for Mashed lets her use her writing skills to inform readers about the wonderful world of food. Her favorite assignments involve cooking tips because life is meaningless without great meals, and even seasoned cooks can learn new tricks.


Jennifer graduated from Drew University with a Bachelor of Arts in English literature and minors in sociology and theater. She also completed copywriting courses through the American Writers & Artist Institute and Comprehensive Copywriting Academy.
