Hi friends! 🤗
We just wanted to give a quick, personal intro to who we are and why we are passionate about cooking and eating together.
Ciao, I’m Marianna! 👋🏻 I love my husband and family! Growing up in Italy, I was privileged to be in a culture where eating together is a true celebration and a sacred gift . My mom consistently exemplified this even on a very limited budget. Simple, genuine, good food prepared with seasonal ingredients and fresh flavors. Nothing brings me more joy than to prepare food and share life by sitting around our kitchen table with those who come into our door!
Sara here!✌🏻If you know me at all, it is clear that I am passionate about exploring different cultures, intentionally getting to know people and EATING! Experiencing life with others brings me so much J☀️Y. Working with my family was never part of my plan, but I absolutely love that the Lord had it in His!
There is no better way to share life than by sitting around the kitchen table as we experience the beauty of simple food with family and friends new and old. Here, we can let our guard down because it is a safe place where there is time to freely share opinions, listen, laugh, cry, teach and build each other up. As we invest in the lives of others, let our table be a place of refuge and a haven of peace. 💕

Finally found a great Thai place nearby and couldn’t be more thrilled by how many options they have on the menu. There’s something for everyone!
Got the Tom Yum Noodles Spicy (level 5) and lost all feeling in the mouth. It doesn’t look spicy at first glance but make no mistake, it is FIRE!
If you like shrimp, order the Shrimp Mummy to start. It’s basically an egg roll but stuffed with plump shrimp. So basic but so good!
This morning’s #eggbake was on point!
The best part of an egg bake is you can throw anything in it.
This morning’s bake has breakfast sausage, mushrooms, tomato, spinach, basil and Colby Jack cheese in it.
Both Jenn and I are ready to kiss 2017 goodbye!
@diningwithjenn was started purely to share our experiences around Los Angeles (and the random trips beyond) with the purpose of helping people navigate through the dynamic food scene. We thought if we shared useful tips and tricks we learned along the way, then it would contribute to a better dining experience for you. That being said, we are looking forward to the new year and coming back with “bigger” and better content. Watch out!
Cheers to a great 2018! Hope everyone has a fun and safe NYE!
How bow dah fan tuan?
Fan tuan is a traditional Taiwanese breakfast item and most commonly savory. Comprised of youtiao (fried donut), pork sung, salty radish, pickled mustard greens wrapped with glutinous rice. It’s like a breakfast burrito!
