Jeni Eats is my love song to wanderlust and food adventures.
I first began blogging at An Herbalist Eats nearly four years ago while Jake and I were living in our hometown[s], the Twin Cities. Soon after, we moved to Fargo, North Dakota where I became a Fish out of Fargo. In two short years, I fell in love exploring the North Dakota prairie.
I even completed a year of culinary school at Minnesota State Community and Technical College where I prepared my first Peking Duck and learned how to make pie crust. I shared some of my experiences in a series called Culinary Chronicles published by Simple, Good & Tasty.
Then, we became Iowans. Jake and I accepted a job transfer to Mason City where we are getting acquainted with married life with a dog on the Minnesota-Iowa border. As you can see, I had an eventful two years going on many adventures with the North Iowa Bloggers.
In St. Louis, we spent a year farther south than we’ve ever been before, yet still at the gateway to the Midwest. We made a lot of friends and ate a lot of delicious things like Pappy’s ribs and Mai Lee salt and pepper calamari.
Summer 2016, we moved back home to Minneapolis St. Paul where I will continue my adventures. We’ve made a full circle.
At Jeni Eats, my goal is to spin compelling food stories. I want to entertain you and I want to make you laugh. These are the topics that tickle my fancy:
- Home cooking experiments
- Taste testing strange food products
- Road trips off the beaten path
- Local food producers
- Adventures in retro foods
- Dive bars
- Food quests
- Unique dining experiences
- Hat tips to my favorite foods and beverage producers
I hope you will join me on this blogging journey. Whether I write about food, travel, or family, I hope it’s always authentic and never boring. My ultimate goal is to write the type of blog I want to read.
