I'm Jen and I'm from Texas, which means I say "y'all" a lot and like to talk about the fact that I'm from Texas #TexasForever. However, I moved to Chicago in November in 2014 and am happy to finally be in a city where my love of hot dogs is right at home.

When I'm not working, you can probably find me in my kitchen trying my hand at a new dish, at the gym or on my yoga mat getting my sweat on, or planning my next big vacation or birthday party.
