Maybe you need new recipes. Maybe you’d like to spruce up old recipes with new photography. Or you need a friendly, engaging spokesperson for a PR campaign.

Let me help.

I am extremely good at making my clients’ lives easier. I do what I say, by when I say I’ll do it. Cheerfully. Working with me, you get great work without worry.

“Jill can do it all. And she does it all with style, professionalism, creative culinary skill, and a smile! Her recipes are always on-trend, full of flavor, spot-on accurate, and inspiring. Her photography has always delivered on what we needed and our library is filled with many of her tasty, mouth-watering images. She has anchored and represented successful programs as well and is a true partner and part of the team. I am and will always be a huge fan!”

—Pamela Johnson, former Director Consumer Communications, National Pork Board

Here are some of the things I can take off your plate.

Recipe development

I am really good at creating delicious, doable recipes for home cooks.
In addition to the many cookbooks I’ve authored, co-authored, ghost-written, and contributed to, my recipes have been published in magazines including Bon Appétit, Fine Cooking, Cooking Light, and Clean Eating. And I regularly work with brands and commodity boards including the National Pork Board, the California Milk Advisory Board, California Sweetpotatoes, Lindsay Olives, Annie’s Homegrown, La Terra Fina Dips, Circulon, Anolon, Robert Mondavi Winery, and Grgich Hills Estate Winery.

Specialties include food and wine pairing, healthy cooking, and translating chef recipes into consumer recipes.

“I enjoy working with Jill because she always delivers excellent recipes. She’s thoughtful and creative in her approach, and every project is unique and every recipe is exactly what we need.”

—Stephanie Robbins, Director of Brand Development, La Terra Fina USA
