How can I tell when my roast chicken is cooked? How big should those diced potatoes really be? What does “cook until browned” really mean, anyway? Not sure what to expect when you’re making a new recipe? Let Jessie show you. Literally.

Most cookbooks display a picture of the finished dish, followed by thick paragraphs of instructions. The Hungry Mouse is designed to be a visual guide to food and cooking. With Jessie’s signature, step-by-step photo recipes, you’ll know just what each stage of cooking looks like. So you know just what you’re in for before you step into the kitchen—as well as when you’re in front of the stove.

About the Author:

Jessie is not a trained chef. She just loves to cook—and write. (It’s really that simple.) Her nickname is Mouse, or more formally, Miss. Mouse. You can figure the rest out.

Jessie has published hundreds of articles—as well as worked a bit in the food industry, written restaurant reviews, and edited a handful of books. (Ask her about the time she interviewed Second Lady Tipper Gore at the White House.)

When she’s not shopping for cheese or baking pies, she works as an advertising copywriter and runs Cake House Creative (, an advertising and publishing consultancy. She is currently at work on her first book.

Jessie lives just outside of Boston with her husband, The Angry Chef, two Siamese cats, and Dexter, the Barking Sous Chef.
