Hello I’m Jacquelyn and welcome to Jackieskitchn  Jackieskitchn

I started this food blog as a way to share my love of food with friends and family.  My blog is a labor of love, derived from 30+ years of trial and error in my very own “test kitchen.”

I am proud to say that my background includes studying with Protocol Consultants International and The Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette. People want to feel that they matter. Incorporating those beliefs when dining shows the respect we have for others and ourselves.

My goal is to combine my love for cooking and traveling and share with you the treasures I find. I am always searching for new creative recipes while traveling, along with finding restaurants that are hidden gems. Come along on this food journey with me, who knows I might be coming to your neighborhood!

A creative mind never rests for long

  • I am a protocol consultant
