Welcome! I’m Jade, the writer behind Jonesin’ For Taste.
Do you feel like making food for your family is just another hurdle to cross each day and when you do make dinner it’s boring and predictable?
Well, you’re in the right place because I create easy recipes that allow you to explore the amazing flavors of the world AND spend more time together as a family and less time in the kitchen.
As a busy mom of 3 kids I know how overwhelming trying to get food on the table can be. Personally, I struggle with depression (read about my reality with depression here) which can be downright paralyzing when it comes to meal time, but food is not only an essential part of life- it can bring comfort and joy!
We’ve moved all around the United States (all 3 of our children have been born in different states), my husband lived in Switzerland for two years, I’ve traveled to Mexico, Europe, and Australia and I have a very mixed heritage (and the DNA results to prove it) all of which has greatly influenced the way we eat.
I feel it is important that children are exposed to different regions of the world whether it is through travel or exploring the world through food. Raising world food explorers teaches children to be more understanding to new ideas and compassionate to others around them.

That’s why I’ve found ways to simplify foods from around the world so that we can enjoy them even on days when there’s only 30 minutes to get food on the table.
Start with this guide if you are ready to start raising world food explorers and let me know if there are any regions you are dying to explore.
