A Birthday Present From YouTube

Jenny Can CookJenny Jones Youtube VideosI never expected anything like this! When I made my cooking videos, it was just a hobby. I love to cook and just wanted to share my recipes in case some of my fans might be interested. I knew a lot of people didn’t even cook but it was still fun. I watched as the number of views continued to grow and my videos were soon discovered by the entire world. It was international! Comments and questions came in from 200 countries (where they use the metric system – I never planned for that).

Then the corona virus came and the whole world was quarantined at home and had to cook, and bake bread. My recipes are simple and they always turn out so people who have never cooked before and needed to learn started watching and they had questions. A lot of questions. I want to help and I try to answer as many as I can but it’s impossible to keep up. I’m doing the best I can so please understand if I don’t answer your question.

As timing would have it, the millionth subscriber signed up on my birthday today. Now that is a birthday gift I never could have predicted but it makes me so happy because it means that my little home videos are helping people eat healthy home cooked meals and knowing I’m making a difference is the best gift I could have received.

    Where have you been posting your cooking shows? This post from you is in 2020 but the last video I’ve seen of you on YouTube was for meatloaf back in 2018!
    I’d love to pickup watching your cooking again! Are you still into healthy eating like you used to talk about?
    Love you, Jenny. And Howdy from Texas!

    Hi Jenny.
    I’m from the uk and I have over the last year been following your Jenny can cook videos. I was curious why you had stopped producing videos. I loved how fun and a cheeky you are and you humour shone through!! Your recipes are great too. Found myself looking you up. To find out what a celeb you’ve been in America and what good works you have done. I just wanted to say thank you for all of your videos on you tube. I miss you! Your such a talent. No chance of anymore Recipes?! 🙌❤️

    Recently found your Jenny Can Cook videos. I made your apple pie which was the best apple pie ever. My pie crust didn’t look great but it still tasted really good. I also made the baked ziti and that was fantastic too.

    Hello Jenny,

    I recently stumbled across your cooking videos on YouTube- thank you so much! I appreciate all you share from foolproof recipes, to information about health, cooking tips, and your fun, friendly, welcoming demeanor with a tinge of irreverent humor (sometimes!) With each video I come away with something that makes me a better cook and a healthier person. I know these are A LOT of work for you to put together and appreciate all the effort!

    Thank you,

    Hell? JENNY❕

    What a TREAT? for my having run into you via your #LEMON BROWNIES recipe [ ] (“subscribed”!?….).

    As I was paying attention to your instructions, delighting in your bright, sparkling, personality (& wishing that I could get a transfusion …?…) I kept having this gnawing sense that …”I’ve ‘SEEN’ her somewhere before … !”

    & THEN! ‘Bam!’ Of COURSE! #THAT daytime host: #JENNY JONES❕

    I am so delighted to have drawn your energy back into my world, viewing your vids, besides benefiting frim tasty dishes, thank you for bringing your ebulliently bright energy to my day!
