Friend Of The Week – Jean


When it comes to blogging, what are your favorite topics to read about? If you’re like me, you love them all – I’m definitely eclectic when it comes to my tastes – but I have to confess, I get a little bit weak in the knees when I meet a talented food blogger like Jean at Delightful Repast!

Jean started Delightful Repast in February 2010 to showcase comfort food with a difference—original recipes that feature sustainable, local, organic, whole foods. Even though she’s an omnivore, she’s developed lots of recipes for friends with special diets.

Jean says you’ll find lots of organic, grass-fed, pastured meat recipes as well as lots of gluten-free, nondairy, vegan and vegetarian options on her blog, as well as weekly posts that reflect her “heritage cooking” style (English and Southern US). You’ll also find occasional reviews of food-related or tea-related products, equipment or travel, relevant to Delightful Repast and its readers.

Aberdeen Butteries

These scrumptious Aberdeen Butteries are a sample of the delicious treats that await you on her blog!

When Jean isn’t blogging, she loves curling up on a rainy day with a nice cuppa tea, a cat, and a good book! She also loves cooking for her very polite and humorous husband, who says to her after nearly every dinner, “Thank you for the delightful repast.” How else could Jean name her food blog anything else?

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten Jean’s day by dropping by her blog and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

    I’m totally a beach girl. I love the smell of the salt in the air and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. Thanks so much for hosting!

  2. Hello again from Winter in Australia…which is actually mild and sunny. Thank you so much for your friendship here on the blog. It’s good to have friends from all over the world. Denyse

      Happy Friendship Friday to you Down Under, Denyse (just love saying that!)
      We’re about to experience our first brutal heat wave of the summer – I’m trying to enjoy the last moments of “cool”!
      Enjoy your temperate weather this weekend – we’re supposed to go up to 109 (yikes!)

  3. Hi Ramona! I definitely chose the beach!
    Thanks for hosting and happy Friday 🙂

  4. I’d love to spend my vacation somewhere with access to the mountains, the beach, and in the woods. (How’s that for not picking!?) It used to be beach hands down, but now that I have a toddler, I’m not sure that I want to spend my entire day chasing him out of the waves. I live in Alaska, so… we’re pretty spoiled by having all three.

    I’ve introduced myself before, but just because I like to talk, here goes again! I’m Erin of SalmonAtSeven. I started blogging in 2010 at EKat’s Kitchen and after some life changes, rebranded to SalmonAtSeven. I now focus on a combination of healthy living, gardening, parenting, food… and well, life. 🙂

    Hi, I’m Patti, and I have recently returned to blogging after a 2-year hiatus. I began blogging back in 2006, with a blog geared toward homeschooling and adoption. Alas, my kids graduated from high school, and our adoption fell through, so I ended up abandoning that blog. After a few years of “spinning my wheels” and wondering what purposeful thing to do with my life now that my kids were grown, I am recommitted to creating a warm, nurturing, loving home. My blog, Embracing Home is all about home and hospitality.

    I look forward to getting to know other bloggers.
