My name is Johanne McInnis and although I was born and raised in Campbellton I have made the city of Saint John my home for the last 25 years.
I work as a civil servant for the federal government and in my spare time, what little spare time I find, I love hiking, sailing but mostly cooking. All of the recipes you will find on this site have been tested and "approved" by my adoring panel: My husband Graham, daughter Erica and many of my friends.
One of the reasons I thought Jo's kitchen was a great idea is because I love to cook and most of my recipes are simple, quick and healthy. I try to make it a point never to buy anything that comes in a can, box or wrapper and everything I make is mostly from scratch.
The majority of the recipes I have collected over the years were either clipped from magazines, shared from friends or copied out of books but I usually end up putting a personal twist on the recipe and it turns out to be a Johanne "original".
So, I encourage you to try them out for yourself, if you like any of my recipes let me know and feel free to send me one in return at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy creative cooking!
