Hi there! I’m Jessica, the name and the face behind Citrus & Delicious. I’m a blogger, freelance writer, recipe developer, photographer and chocolate aficionado born and raised in New Jersey. Citrus & Delicious (formerly Citrus Blossom Bliss) was created to share my experiences with food (including desserts) and exercise and trying to find a comfortable balance between the two. I love creating delicious and approachable recipes that make cooking at home fun again.
I love balance. There’s no need to cut out the things you love, like chocolate or desserts. Everything in moderation has its benefits. Have a look around and check out some of my favorite things to cook!
I’ve always told people I was an old soul trapped in a young(ish) person’s body, and I stand by it. I’ve always enjoyed writing, reading, learning, organizing and responsibility. I must have been a strange, strange child.
Most times I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades. I can cook, play/watch/understand most sports, give a car a jump start, and pick out a nice outfit when I need to 🙂
I’m a pretty cool dog mom. This little guy is my cuddle buddy.
I love his sleepytime antics and his spots.
Without a doubt, my favorite food is pizza. I don’t care if it’s Sicilian, thick crust, thin crust, cooked in a coal-fired oven or cooked in my own gas range—if it’s pizza, I will love it. Runner up foods include penne vodka, chicken Parmesan, Chipotle chicken burrito bowls filled to the brim with toppings, salads with great dressings and flavors, cookies, ice cream, and chocolate. My go-to essential beverages are coffee and water (always), orange juice and lemonade (sometimes), and Starbucks’ caramel macchiatos (when I need a quick pick-me-up). At a party I once hosted, there were as many options for dessert as there were for non-dessert foods. We take our desserts very seriously.
As much as I love food and exercise, I also love the craft of writing while sharing recipes and information with my readers. In college I majored in English and History, so I always strive to make my writing fun and entertaining while keeping it grammatically correct. Proper grammar makes me happy.
