This week on Let’s Eat In, Cathy Erway sits down with Jennifer Perillo, writer of the blog In Jennie’s Kitchen and a new cookbook entitled “City Girl, Country Kitchen”. Tune in to hear about how Jennie found her creative outlet in scratch-cooking and how it inspired her to create a food blog. Learn more about Jennie’s upcoming cooking memoirs, recipes for the home cook, and Jennie’s ideal date meal. This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.

“There’s a lot of content out there about scratch cooking, but I’m not sure it applies to busy lifestyles.”

“I grew up on a lot of pre-made and processed foods..we never made cakes from scratch. I got to a point in my life when i was in my teens where I thought ‘there has to be a way to do this on your own!’ I really got hooked on it, it became my creative outlet.”

“At the end of the day, you’re only a phone call away from take-out if [scratch cooking] becomes a disaster.”
