ABOUT ME

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.

In addition to healthy cooking, I’m very passionate about holistic health and wellness. Being on the dance team in college encouraged me to take nutrition and wellness into my own hands. I experienced an illness a few years ago which drove me to really appreciate the power of holistic health and a healthy diet. I

Music is another passion of mine, which is why it's incorporated into The Scrounge! Discovering new music and sharing it with friends and family makes me so happy.  It's another way I love to connect with people, just like food. I wanted a way to share my music with you, so I created Scrounge Sounds. If you'd like to know what I'm listening to while Scrounging, preview songs here or follow my Scrounge Sounds playlist on Spotify here! I have eclectic music taste so you'll find a little bit of everything on this playlist. I hope you enjoy discovering new music while Scrounging.  

Happy Scrounging!

Jenna
