Chef Spotlight: Jill

This week our featured chef is Jill. She seems like a fun gal. Oh, and about her picture she said, "When I took this picture, my 6-yr-old daughter, Irelynd, insisted on being in it too."

Jill Henry

Where are you from?

I live in Spanish Fork, but I grew up in Provo.

Why did you join What's in {Your} Oven?

I thought it sounded fun to force myself to try new recipes, and glean some from others. And my sister-in-law Sallie told me I had to! I’m very obedient. lol
. (Sallie is definitely a person to be obeyed. Ha ha ha.)

Who do you cook for?

Myself, hubby Scott, daughters Savannah and Irelynd, son Brighton, and 10 ½ month old twins, Keaton and Waverly. (10 1/2 months-- those were the days...) I love to cook for other people too, when I have the time. I’d be a habitual dinner-party hostess, if I had the time and money!

What kind of food do you like?

I love Mexican, Chinese, Italian; my favorite thing is gourmet pizzas. And I LOVE to bake, but I don’t very often because I eat it…all!
(me, too!)

What do you hope to get out of participating in What's in {Your} Oven?

Some new recipes. I get really excited to try something new and different. I hate making the same things more than once. My cooking motto is Life is too short to make the same dessert twice. (Sounds like a good rule to live by!) My husband hates this! Oh well. It’s my kitchen and my rules. Lol.

We are glad you joined us. If you like to make things new and different, this is the place to be!

She does throw dinner parties often. I'm lucky enough to go to most of them. I'll share this other tidbit; she is a birthday party QUEEN! My kids wished she was their mom : )
