I’m Jenna, the foodie behind The Scrounge. I live in Chicago and love everything about the city life, especially all of the delicious food! One of my favorite things to do and how I began cooking is to challenge myself to use only the foods I have in my kitchen to create a meal...hence, Scrounge! My husband and I refer to cooking as, “Scrounge Sessions”, something we're so committed to it was even in our wedding vows! I also find joy in not wasting food, which is another reason for Scrounging. I love sharing my recipes with friends and family and now I have a place to do so. Over the past few years, I’ve realized how much of a passion I have for food and nutrition.
I’m so intrigued by the power of food and how it not only provides nutrients, but also the ability to heal the human body through eating the right foods. I love how food brings people together and is often at the center of shared experiences with family and friends. You'll find that my recipes are healthy yet, very simple with few ingredients. My frustrations with recipes are when there are too many ingredients that I don’t have at home and can’t substitute, or when I need fancy cooking appliances to be able to make something. You won’t find either of those to be a problem on The Scrounge.
