Easy Dinner Fanatic

I am a busy NJ mom that loves to cook but doesn't always have as much time as I would like to. I am a champ of cooking easy, quick meals before I run my kids to one of their nightly activities or sports practices. I love to use local ingredients when possible as I am a true Jersey girl at heart. Besides keeping up with my food blog Jersey Girl Cooks, I am a freelance writer, recipe developer and I work in social media. I look forward to sharing my easy dinner recipes with you!
