I’m Jess, a lover of all foods simple & seasonal
A creative to my core, I started Cooking in my Genes to bring people around my virtual table and share simple, approachable recipes that make you smile and fill your belly.
I have a hope: to share tasty, thoughtful meals with more communities, bringing awesome products to life through recipes that resonate.
Food is in my blood, and I show my family and friends love by making delicious things for them whenever I can.
From a young age, I remember sitting around the dinner table at home or the cottage, for big meals, conversations and laughs. Days made for eating, like Christmas, that had two turkey dinners in less than 12 hours and brought my German heritage together with my Canadian one.
These are the times in my life that have made me the happiest—gathering with people I love to break bread and share stories. It’s these moments that I draw on for my recipes, to help inspire you to create your own meals and memories with the people that matter to you.
What brings me joy? When I hear that a recipe has made its way into your weekly meal plan, brightened an otherwise tough day, or helped you celebrate a special moment in your life. It’s a privilege to know that a recipe helped launch a new product for a great company and brought them closer to their community.
Over here, we know there’s nothing a strong cup of coffee can’t fix.
I’m here to help you find simple, seasonal recipes that taste good. That make it easier to get together with your friends. That help you spend less time in the kitchen and more time eating.
Happy to have you on this journey with me,
