Foodies, check out the food adventures from our travels on Confident in the Kitchen, Jean’s culinary arts site.

If you love great recipes, her cookbook, Confident in the Kitchen, has what you need. Jean’s unique approach to recipes shares what you need, what to do, and also the why for each step. Over the years, she has added a little something for everyone, whether you love cooking or baking, savory or sweet, comfort cuisine, or fashionable fair. And if you have a dietary restriction, such as gluten or dairy, you will find that too! All of her recipes are tested and retested to perfection (as chief taste tester, I know and recommend!)
