Hi I'm Jennifer!
Welcome to Kitchen Serf!
I’ve been blogging for the past eight years.
I’ve been baking and experimenting in the kitchen since I was knee high to a pig’s eye.
Baking cookies was a special time with my mom and my grandma.
And now as a middle-aged newspaper reporter and photographer, I’m addicted to finding, tweaking and developing the very best recipes for you.
Kitchen Serf was created to be a resource for you whether you need a Christmas cookie recipe or a dessert to take to a bake sale or potluck.
I want you to always have success and pride in whatever you’re bringing to the table.
My most popular recipe is Key Lime Pie but people also devour Gooey Butter Cake--I'm a St. Louis native and Gooey Butter Cake is one of our claims to fame.
By the way, if you’re a lemon lover, you’ve come to the right place.
I’ve got oodles of lemon recipes for you, including Lemon Bars with Graham Cracker Crust and Copycat Panera Lemon Drop Cookies.
About Jennifer Osborn
The only thing I’ve ever wanted to do was write.
And that’s what I’ve been doing for over 25 years! First doing public relations and development and for the past 22 years, as a newspaper reporter on the coast of Maine.
Newspaper reporting is the best job in the world, btw. Having a reason to ask people all kinds of questions and then writing about it—it’s a nosy Nellie’s dream.
Yes, I'm a self-admitted snoop. In fact sometimes when I was a kid, my parents would call me “big ears,” because I was always listening to conversations.
I have a degree in English literature from the University of Missouri.
When I’m not newspapering or blogging, I’m getting rid of my facial hair (hello post menopausal beard) or watching British mysteries or practicing yoga or reading a cookbook. Cookbooks: Six Favorites + Tell Me Yours
