About Jenny Bullistron

profile photo of Jenny Bullistron

Jenny Bullistron is a self-taught home cook and a former bartender. She lives in a small town in Western Wisconsin on the Mississippi River (goodbye, Chicago!)

Her dreams of moving to a smaller place with more grass, green space, and clean air finally came true! If she could grow her own fruit and vegetables, she would be living her dream life.

She goes by Jenny B, but you may call her Jenny.

Where can you find Jenny’s other work?

Jenny has written for Parade Magazine, TODAY’s Food Club, A Night Owl Blog, Craftaholics Anonymous, and GroupOn over the years. You can also find some of her most popular recipes at The Feed Feed.

If you want to see Jenny in action, she has done several live demonstrations for Red Gold Tomatoes on ABC7’s Windy City Live, one of Chicago’s most popular day-time talk shows.

Jenny Bullistron has been called one of the Top 10 Interesting Beverage Influencers and her 3-Can Black Bean Soup was featured on CNN.

Jenny also was the winner of the inaugural Maker’s Mark Julep Off.

She has traveled across the United States and Europe as the guest of multiple brands and tourism boards:

Jenny’s photography has been featured on Grandbaby Cakes – check out these travel guides with her photos: Austin Ultimate Travel Guide, Austin Taco Crawl, Georgia on My Mind, and Best Restaurants in Charleston. She has also produced original photography for Rodelle‘s recipe database.

What will you find at The Thirsty Feast?

Jenny focuses on easy recipes and fun cocktails. She also loves to travel and has created travel guides for some of her favorite places.

Why is the URL honeyandbirch and not thethirstyfeast?

When Jenny started her website, she envisioned it as a home for from-scratch recipes and craft tutorials. Eventually, her content and recipes geared more towards entertaining and cocktails and it was time for a rebrand. Instead of erasing Honey and Birch, she decided to put The Thirsty Feast under the Honey and Birch umbrella, with her other companies.
