I’m the best-selling author of Half the Sugar, All the Love (which hit #1 in its category) and was selected as a Barnes & Noble New Year Top Pick. A cross between Eat This, Not That and Deceptively Delicious, my newest book shows that reducing sugar doesn’t mean giving up the comfort foods you love—the trick is to sweeten them with fiber-rich fruits and vegetables instead of added sugar. My work has been featured by The Washington Post, Parents Magazine, Real Simple Magazine, Hallmark’s Home and Family, NBC News Better, Alice Waters, Michael Pollan, Mark Bittman, Jessica Alba, and Oprah, among others. I earned my Nutrition and Healthy Living certificate from Cornell University. I’m a guest lecturer at Stanford University and a featured contributor on ABC7 News. I share recipes each week at 52newfoods.com.

Food is love... and Jennifer gives that gift. This experience was amazing to share with my 9 year old daughter. We will forever cherish the day that we were able to share kitchens with Jennifer, learn a little about how to make special treats with less added sugar and most importantly take a moment to spend quality time together. Big warm fuzzies on this experience. We can't wait to make more of Jennifer's creations!

Great, fun way to bake (or in my case learn to bake)! The recipes are really flexible, so you can tailor them to your dietary requirements.

Hi. I had problems logging on but once it was sorted the session for making Brownies and healthy lollies was brilliant. Tasted great. Really enjoyed doing this with my granddaughter Poppy in Liverpool while I was Belfast and Jennifer was in Washington. Technology is fantastic. Lockdown advantage is baking, lots of fun. Yeah.

I purchased this class for some of my family members for Mother's Day. They absolutely loved it!! They learned so much about healthier alternatives for some typical recipes. Her book was such a great addition to this as well. Jennifer is so sweet and kind. She was very helpful in making this happen and she made it feel really special for all of us. I will definitely be recommending this class!
