About Eat Drink Pretty

{Photo credit: Gruman Photography}

I'm Jenna, the writer/creator behind Eat Drink Pretty.  I live in Minnesota with my awesome husband Erik, beautiful and sweet daughter Juliet and crazy kitty Kody.  By day, I work in advertising.

Eat Drink Pretty started as a lifestyle blog focused on cooking, baking and entertaining/party planning.  You will find a ton of recipes and lots of fun and inspirational real parties.

When my baby girl came along, things changed a bit (funny how that happens when you become a parent.)  I wouldn't necessarily say that it's now a mom blog...but some days it sort of is.  You'll see lots of photos of my sweet girl, and snippets of our life, which still fortunately includes quite a bit of cooking and entertaining.

Please enjoy Eat Drink Pretty and don't hesitate to email me with any questions, comments, feedback to eatdrinkpretty@gmail.com.

I am a bit of an Instagram addict and can be found @eatdrinkpretty.  I'm also a pinning fool on Pinterest.  You can also find me on Twitter or "like on Facebook.

  2. My husband is Filipino, so I'm right there with you when it comes to the love of Filipino cuisine. Rice is a daily staple in this house too! :) We're trying out the new Filipino restaurant downtown tonight, I'll have to let ya know how that is! :D

  3. Heidi - Please let me know how it is, I assume you are going to Subo, right? I have heard many mixed reviews about it but refuse to take anything too seriously until I try it for myself. I want a filipino restaurant to be successful in Minneapolis! The space looks really cool, it's in a good location and they are doing interesting things with the filipino/fusion style of food.

  4. Your blog is adorable. I am also taking up an obsession with these very same things! Just started a blog dedicated to life as a 20something, but definitely centers on cooking, as that's what life centers around for me! xxSAS

  6. My mother is Filipino and I grew up on their delicious cuisine. I am so happy that I stumbled upon your blog and can't wait to get ideas from it! In fact I was at my parent's house last night and rice was served with our grilled food...only in a Filipino household!

  9. Jenna,

    I LOVE your blog! I very recently started something called "Feature Friday" in which I showcase an artist, site or shop that has caught my attention. Needless to say, I have chosen Eat.Drink.Pretty today as my second Feature. :) I have included your header image, a short description, and 3 of my favorite photo/recipes .... with links back to you, of course! Keep up the fantastic work ~ I'm so pleased to have discovered your site. As a fairly new blogger, I can really appreciate the time and effort you have put into making this a wonderful home for all things lovely.

  16. It's a great idea, and generous of you to want to share. I'm most impressed by the images--both how beautiful your food is in its presentation, and how well the photographs show off its perfection. [And, of course, the beautiful shots of your most beautiful production--Juliet.] Great blog.
