I’m Jennifer, the author at A Sweet Alternative. My passion for cooking dates back to my teenage years when I worked as a waitress on the weekends and spent as much time as possible hanging out in the restaurant kitchen so I could watch the chefs cook and absorb everything I could learn.

I have two amazing kids who happen to be somewhat picky eaters (although my oldest is becoming a much more adventurous eater lately!). My children inspire me to create simple, nourishing, nutrient-dense recipes.

I’ve noticed that I feel better when I eliminate refined sugar from my diet, so the recipes I test and develop call for alternative sweeteners such as date paste, raw honey, and maple syrup.

In addition to creating nutritious dessert recipes, I’ll also be providing plenty of recipes for main courses, soups, sauces, drinks, sides, appetizers, and snacks. Subscribe to receive new recipes delivered via email!
