Hi! I’m Jenevive

If you can’t tell already, I’m obsessed with food. It’s always been the glue that holds my life together–especially during times of uncertainty. When I don’t have time for culinary explorations, life seems so boring and empty. (Maybe you can relate!) Finally, after years of trial and error, recipe collecting and plenty of stamps on my passport, I started this blog! When the pandemic hit the world in 2020, I realized that life is too short and that it’s silly to postpone bucket lists until retirement.

I’m originally from the Philippines, but my husband and I live in Germany with our kid. When I was working in Qatar back in 2012, I met my wonderful husband and we began planning our many adventures together! In 2015, we moved to Germany, got married, had our kid, all in the same year! Hectic, I know :-D. My blog has brought so many fascinating people into my little digital world. Maybe we’ll meet in person one day. We can share a pot of tea or a pitcher of fresh pineapple juice on my patio, and listen to Christmas songs (I love xmas songs) while we wait for the roasted chicken to rest. I hope you enjoy my stories and recipes. If there’s one thing I love more than cooking, it’s knowing that I brought a ray of sunshine into your day.


(pssstt… I also love jokes! Do you have a silly joke to tell me? Email it to me! Let’s be friends.)
