Hey! It's my family!


I inspire creativity through celebration.

Updating this web log has been my hobby since 1997. The site is 20 years old. I am not.

I’m a content strategist, art teacher, mama, wife and friend. I live in California’s beautiful Napa Valley. Every day, you’ll find me strategizing content for the National Restaurant Association, teaching at Nimbus Arts, momming my 2 daughters, wifing my handsome programmer husband, and friending the big group of weirdos that make me laugh.

On this site, you’ll find recipes, essays and our weekly meal plan.
You can email me at hj@helenjane.com.
