Jennifer Perillo is the Consulting Food Editor at Working Mother magazine, a contributor to FoodNetwork.com, and author of Homemade with Love: Simple Scratch Cooking from In Jennie’s Kitchen (Running Press, 2013). Perillo began her popular blog In Jennie’s Kitchen in 2008, where she shares stories about her life in and out of the kitchen.
Home cooks love how her original recipes show them how to think outside of the norm, breaking boring eating habits by giving new life to standard ingredients, like making Carrot “Fettuccine” by simply using a vegetable peeler to create strands to steam or sauté (long before spiralizers were a thing). Perillo also understands the many dietary challenges today’s families face. Dairy-free, egg-free and gluten-free recipes are commonplace in her collection, giving access and visibility to a wide-ranging audience.
