Welcome! I’m Janna, tea fanatic, food lover, working mom and artist. I’ve been writing this blog about trying new foods and recipes for 4+ years so I can finally admit that yes, I’m also a writer. We’ve made a ton of progress since I’ve started and I’m happy with the current attitudes about new foods with my family. My rule for the kids is that they aren’t allowed to say they don’t like something unless they try it first. Getting them to try it is another story though. My husband is the pickiest of them all and does not agree with that rule and hates to have food “mixed together” which in general means no casseroles, soups or stews at this house. My new recipes each week are not mandatory for the entire family as I realize there are certain things they just aren’t ready to try yet.
