WELCOME TO PINKWHEN
First I would like to take the time to welcome you here to PinkWhen. This is a website that is authored and edited by myself, Jennifer West, on a daily basis. This is a recipe site and sometimes a lifestyle blog where I share all of my favorite crafts and recipes.
First off, I am not a chef, nor do I pretend to be one on TV :-). You will find my recipes have either been passed down or created, and they are all tested by myself, my family, and my friends. You can also find full tutorials on some of my favorite craft ideas.
Keep in mind that this is always a work in progress, as I am the one and only employer, and one and only employee.
AS SEEN ON
How did PinkWhen come about?
Several years ago I was in the fast world of corporate America with a high-stress position in medical device sales. While I was very successful with this for over 10 years, my heart was at home with just having the last of my children. I soon decided to create a space where I could share what I love to make and create.
Eventually, this site evolved into me sharing all of my favorite recipes and occasional crafts and printables with everyone.
What does PinkWhen mean?
One day while at a zoo, my then 3-year-old stepson said he wanted to go and see the Penguins. However, it didn’t come out as Penguin, it came out as “PinkWhen”. Here we are a couple of years later with our very own PinkWhen.
When choosing a blog name I would suggest choosing something that describes your blog. I went the non-traditional route because I could not get the name out of my head, and who doesn’t just love “PinkWhens”.
Where are we located?
PinkWhen is located in Shreveport, Louisiana, a small city that is in the very northwest corner of Louisiana. The largest cities we are located to are Dallas, TX, and Baton Rouge, LA.
If you have questions or concerns about anything you see on this site, leave us a comment. While I may not be able to get to every single one, I do try my best to answer them all. Please remember this is a family-friendly site, any spam or negative comments will not be approved.
All pictures in posts and recipes, unless specifically stated otherwise, are the property of this site and taken by Jennifer West. All photos will be watermarked with the PinkWhen name and or logo. If you use a picture or recipe in a roundup, you must include a link back to the original post, picture, or recipe you have borrowed it from.
I love photography and have taught myself over the years. My older posts may still look a little crazy, but my newer posts definitely show my true passion for food and photography.
I often get asked about my photography equipment. I shoot with both a Canon MarkIV and a Canon 7D Mark II. For lenses, I love using my 50mm and 100mm macro lenses almost exclusively.
*Do NOT copy and paste an entire recipe or post from this site, that is stealing, and you will be asked to remove it.
An avid LSU college football fan, I graduated from LSUS in 2000. After more than 10 years in medical device sales, I was able to stay at home with the youngest of our families four children. While that was a full time job in itself, I decided to create a space where I could share some of my favorite things in life. My hobby quickly became my passion and you can find me here on a daily basis.
Our family LOVES to travel. We like to share all of the fun we have at our amazing destinations all over our social media channels. If you would like to work with me on a travel idea, please contact me directly at contact (at) pinkwhen (dot) com for more.
