    "Hi Jenn...THANK YOU for having what I consider to be the best food blog on the net. I've tried more of your recipes than I can even count at this point, and not a single one has ever disappointed---in fact, most of them have become family favorites that I've made over and over and over again...Perhaps the ultimate compliment I can pay is that I wouldn't hesitate to make one of your recipes for company without having tested it first, because I know your recipes are guaranteed to turn out great...I hope you continue posting for years to come so my family (and guests) can benefit from all of your great recipes!"

    “Thank you, thank you, thank you! I discovered your website recently...Every recipe looks fantastic, and what's really great, by now I've made about 5 of your recipes, and they all worked.

It all comes out exactly as you describe, and I just love flavour combinations you suggest. So, thank you! Greetings from the Netherlands! ” - Olga

    Well here’s to Jennifer yet again. I wanted to make crackle cookies this year. After reading a few recipes in this years magazines, I decided to move on. But then it dawned on me…try the archives of MY GO TO GIRL!!! And there it was. I always know that Jennifer has done the work, so without question I was off in a flash to the store. I made them this morning and they are hands down the best holiday cookie I have ever had. THANK YOU SO MUCH JENNIFER, YOU NEVER LET ME DOWN!” - Judi

  • Sautéed-Zucchini-and-Tomatoes

    About two months ago I googled "Peruvian Chicken Recipe" and I stumbled upon your recipe for the chicken with green sauce...I'm hooked. It's absolutely amazing. Yesterday I went looking for a middle eastern kebab recipe. I picked a seemingly random recipe and made it for dinner tonight. Once again, we were amazed at how good it was. I went back to note the recipe and what do you know? It's from the same site! Both recipes were amazing...Thanks so much for sharing! -Todd
