Welcome! My name is Jean Marie, but I generally go by JM. My dream is to cook for a living, but in the meantime, why not blog about it? My world consists of family, friends, traveling, our French Bulldog (Patches), cooking as much as possible, and way too many grocery store trips because I can’t get enough. I love all things seafood and focus on healthier cooking and lightening up those Southern classics I grew up on. I live in St. Petersburg, FL and can finally say we retreated to the beach, or close enough!
