About me

About me

Hi, my name is Jasmine and I love bright seasonal food that’s very often finished with a squeeze of lemon. Hence the name. I do most of the cooking around here and my husband Jack is my #1 taste-tester. Together, we photograph our recipes from our home in Chicago, IL.

We’re not entirely vegetarian, but most of the recipes here are. I love to try new foods and create new recipes but I will always have a soft spot for avocado toast and kale salads. My favorite food on the planet is a ripe peach, and Jack’s is mushrooms (in his opinion, he’s a fun guy, get it!)

We started this blog in 2011 and have since been featured in Food & Wine, Food 52, Refinery29, SELF Magazine, and Oprah Magazine(!), among others. Love & Lemons was named Readers Choice Best Cooking Blog by Saveur Magazine in 2014 and won an Saveur Editor’s Choice award in 2016.
