Welcome to Flying on Jess Fuel!
If you don’t already know me, my name is Jess, and I love all things food. I started this blog back in 2011 when my Naval aviator hubby (then boyfriend) Nick and I set out on this crazy adventure they call military life. When we first started moving around, I didn’t know a lot people, so I spent a lot of my free time in the kitchen, exploring new recipes. I started the blog to keep in touch with friends and family as we moved around the country, but it’s grown into something so much more than that.
Though I hail from New England and Nick is a West coaster, we met in Daytona Beach, Florida while Nick was attending school there and I was… well, escaping the cold and snow of my native land. We met through a friend, at a Mexican restaurant where I impressed Nick with my jalapeno-eating skills. How could he resist?
Since then we’ve been on a crazy, never-ending adventure around the country. We moved from Daytona to Pensacola, FL, so Nick could attend flight school for the US Navy. After that we moved several times all over the country, and finally settled in Virginia! We now have 2 awesome daughters and have left Navy life behind. The blog took a bit of a hiatus while the kiddos were young but I’m slowly trying to start it back up!
When it comes to food and cooking, I love it all. You’ll find a little bit of everything on my blog. I try to eat healthy most of the time, but I also have a huge sweet tooth. The hubs has a voracious appetite and I always joke he’s a meatatarian. One thing is for sure, all of the recipes I post are easy and definitely doable for the average home cook!
I hope you enjoy the blog! Please email me with any questions, or say hi on social media!
