Hi, I’m Jordana.

Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to Jem’s Take. Join me in my kitchen where I create a variety of recipes that I hope you will try and enjoy. Are some decadent? Absolutely, and there are less indulgent recipes that are just as delicious. They will satisfy your tastebuds without any sacrifice and my goal is that you love them!

As a home cook, I would like my recipes to encourage you to have fun in the kitchen and to show how small changes can make big differences. You don’t need to be an avid cook to make some really tasty dishes.

My culinary journey began at a young age. I am very thankful to my parents and their endless tastings of my experiments in the kitchen. From them trying out small desserts during the Christmas holidays,  to the mid-week mashups, they were always there to inspire and to motivate. Nothing fancy, just simple food full of love and anticipation that has kept me encouraged over the years.

Then I broadened my taste testers to friends. Their sense of excitement and happiness really catapulted my momentum to another level of creating recipes. I thank everyone, especially Jen and Taylor from Collective Noun who have created this site and have played a part in this adventure. I hope you will join me on my journey in making some delicious food.

And now for the other bit. As I mentioned before, I hope you try, love and enjoy my recipes. I hope you add them to your culinary rotations. I ask that you do not repost my recipes or images without permission. All recipes, posts, and images are by Jordana Eloise, unless otherwise attributed.

Let’s get started!
