Jennifer Gaffney:  "Here is my passion! I didn’t grow up eating many home cooked meals, no one taught me how to cook, eat or to provide my body with the nutrition it needs. Growing up, my mother as a single mother did the best she could for me every single day. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to find a common understanding, talent and love for real food and I’d love to share that same warmth with you!"
