Hi friends! My name is Jenn and I’m so excited you’re here.

Growing up, you could find me in one of two places: sitting cross-legged with my nose in a book or in the kitchen baking. After college, my love for these pastimes grew as I adjusted to life in a new city with a new job in sports marketing — a pan of blondies or a box of cookies goes a long way with new coworkers!

During the coronavirus pandemic, I am leaning hard into these old hobbies to find a sense of normalcy in a world that has been turned upside down. Muffins that were once baked for the coaches in my office are now baked for the doctors and nurses at my mom’s clinic as I temporarily moved back to her house while working remotely. While I may be back on the North Shore, books and baking continue be a source of connection to friends and family across the globe.

Books & Blondies was born out of my desire to share good reads and good eats — I hope you find a new favorite book, a yummy recipe, and a renewed appreciation for finding joy in the small things!
