Hey, I’m Jessie. I’m a music teacher by day, which means I get to spend my time from 7AM-3PM listening to cute kids playing squeaky violins. After 3PM, I get to come home to my wonderful fiance, J., and our little baby: Stewie the dachshund puppy. I love to cook and J. loves to eat, so we’re equally fond of each other’s habits. J.’s a vegetarian, and Stewie’s a hot-dog, but somehow it all works out. I, of course, cater to both. I decided to start a food blog after realizing that I needed an outlet for my cooking obsessions. Plus, people in real life don’t seem to get as excited as I do about the difference between sea salt and table salt. Sea salt, wow! Right?? Ok, fine. I’m not a vegetarian, but I like to eat healthy food and cooking without meat makes me eat my veggies. All recipes on Semi-Veggie Jessie will be vegetarian, but go ahead and add chicken or Spam or beef jerky to any recipe if you want. I promise, I won’t tell. Well… maybe don’t add Spam. That stuff’s gross.
