About Jen!!


My name is Jen and welcome to Jen’s Kitchen Products. I am the mother of three beautiful kids, a 10-year-old boy, and twin 20-month-old girls.  Staying at home with my children has been a dream of mine and I am enjoying every minute of it.

A Little Background on Me:

I have worked for the past 10 years at a country club, assistant superintendent of grounds and greens. While I have an accounting degree, this job piqued my interest and I love it. I am constantly meeting new people and getting to work outside is amazing. With the birth of my twins came the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom (finding babysitting for 2 babies in our small town is not easy).

Why a Cooking and Kitchen Website:

I have grown up in a big family (3 little sisters) and with my mother being a stay-at-home mom, we were a one income family. That being said, we learned to cook big and efficiently, so we are always looking for good recipes and handing kitchen accessories to aid in the efficiency of feeding our family.  So, when the opportunity to stay at home came to life I instantly thought about my website. This is a great way for me to share my “finds” and help others to find great recipes and wonderful cooking utensils and other gadgets that are essential in creating an efficient kitchen.


Thank you for following on my journey to find the latest and greatest kitchen products and hope you really enjoy the recipes and other fun things I find to share. Any questions or comments? Please leave me a message in the comments area.
