About Jeanine & Jack


About Jeanine & Jack:

Hi, my name is Jeanine and I take pictures of my food (also, my husband Jack helps out). I love bright seasonal food that’s very often finished with a squeeze of lemon. Hence the name.

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. In my free time, you might spot me around Austin, usually standing on a chair trying to arrange the perfect Instagram shot.

We started this blog in 2011 and have since been featured in Food & WineFood 52, Refinery29SELF Magazine, and Oprah Magazine(!), among others. Love & Lemons was named the 2014 Readers Choice Best Cooking Blog by Saveur Magazine and here’s a fun recent interview in Tribeza Magazine.

Also – our book is out! Read more about The Love & Lemons Cookbook, here.
