Hello! I'm Jen and welcome to Whole Lotta Yum!
I'm a wife, mom, fur baby lover, and recipe creator that lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest outside of the Seattle area. When I'm not creating new things in the kitchen or behind the camera lens, you'll find me traveling with my family, kitchen dancing, taming my naturally curly frizz, or trying to memorize ABBA songs.
While my career background is in accounting and banking, I traded my calculator for a spatula in 2018 because life is just too short not to go after our dreams. Truth be told, working from home also became essential since we found ourselves sudden caretakers of not only my mom with a serious brain injury but my MIL with early-onset Alzheimers. And being creative is way more fun than crunching numbers and staring at spreadsheets!
ABOUT OUR SITE
After getting diagnosed with an immune system disorder that meant multiple dietary changes for me (no dairy, gluten, and sugar) and helping hubby come up with keto recipes to help jumpstart his weightloss, WLY was started to help others find quick and easy healthy recipes that actually taste GREAT! And we are BEYOND thankful for our 1 million+ visitors per month and 18,000 email subscribers after blogging for just 2 years!
We use fresh ingredients and stay away from processed foods as much as possible in our day to day lives, that being said we're still human, have kids, and still stick to the old family holiday favorites come Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Since food blogging is a 70-80 hour per week job, not only is it a full-time business for me, but I feel blessed to get part-time help from my son Sam (kitchen and recipe help), daughter Madi (social media and videos), Claudia (editor), and my VA, Kelly, who juggles so many things and gets the brunt of my constantly changing strategies.

I'm a self-taught cook who has been tinkering and running food experiments in the kitchen for over 25 years. I'm always looking to learn more about food science through studying, testing, getting inspiration from foodie travel, or taking cooking classes.
We've been featured by sites such as Parade, CafeMom, Yummly, Foodgawker, Forkly, and many more!
All of our recipes are created with the everyday cook in mind looking for mostly healthy recipes that are EASY and turn out perfect the first time!
