Welcome to my new and more permanent home on the web! I threw Cooking with Jen together pretty quickly and while it was a great start to blogging, the site never completely felt like me. So in my very limited free time over the past few months I have been brainstorming names and new design ideas and came up with this. The old design was great, but not mine. I wanted something cleaner and more streamlined that (with my limited knowledge of code) I could make my own. The design may change and evolve over time, as I learn more, but the title and url will remain the same. I hope you like it!
Don't worry, the old recipes and site are not lost. I included a link over in the side bar to an index of the recipes from the old site (and it will also be updated with new recipes from here).
I have also decided to start a google group for fellow food bloggers and home chefs to trade their favorite recipes. I love combing blogs and the web for new things to try, but sometimes you just want a quick answer to what is the "best" recipe for any particular dish, be it a brownie recipe or coq au vin. The thought is that you send an email out to the group and anyone can respond with their thoughts or ideas. It's is invite only and if it sounds like something that is up your alley shoot me an email at piccantedolce [at] gmail [dot] com. Or if you have a better idea for how it should work email that as well.
