Hi, I’m Karen Rose Jacob: a wife, mom, sign language interpreter, and home cook. While trying to juggle a full time work schedule with raising two little boys, I often escape to the kitchen to find peace in a crazy day. Cooking allows me to be creative, take risks that have no serious consequences, and provide delicious (and mostly healthy) meals and treats for the people I care about. I believe making good food doesn’t have to be complicated, and by learning a few reliable recipes anyone can gain confidence in the kitchen. It’s my oasis, and I look forward to sharing that comfort with you.
To learn more about my story, you can jump back to the beginning of Tasty Oasis. While you’re there, you will also get the added bonus of the best chocolate cake recipe I’ve ever made. It’s quick and easy, uses only one bowl, vegan, stays moist for days, and has just a hint of almond to keep people guessing about what makes it so special. You won’t want to miss it!
