About Jolene Kesler, Simple Cooking with Pep

Jolene Kesler is the creator of Simple Cooking with Pep. Jolene shares simple, homemade recipes that she hopes will inspire individuals to try something new, learn from their mistakes and “have a few laughs along the way.” She remarks: “Cooking is not just about eating good food. It’s about the journey and the lessons you learn to make good food. It may not always turn out perfect the first time, but just know that just about everyone has burned a piece of toast in their life. Good things take time.” Jolene was inspired to become a Cookies for Kids’ Cancer supporter because of her experience working in healthcare with cancer patients. She says that during that time she saw both very sad situations but also “true miracles.”
