About Me

all about me

Welcome to This Midwestern Girl! I’m Jenny, and I live in the great Midwestern state of Missouri.

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and spent most of my life doing typical Midwestern things. I spent multiple summers camping in the nearby Ozarks area and floating on the beautiful rivers that run through my state. I can’t tell you how many wonderful pot-luck dinners I have attended with friends and family, or how many county fairs and festivals I have attended.

Ah, the Midwest: Home to Henry Ford, cheese curds, The Great Lakes, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, countless professional sports teams and more acres of farmland than anyone cares to count. It’s a beautiful place with steamy summers, and frigid (not to mention, long) winters, with pockets of pure bliss during the spring and summer. It’s the definition of Americana and one of the best places to call home in the U.S.

It really is, and I love it here. Follow me as I celebrate the food and culture of the American Midwest!
