go ahead, eat. b/c it’s nearly 11:30 and you know you’re starving.
Writer/rocker/ex-Jersey girl Jessica Leshnoff is a copywriter and freelance journalist based in Baltimore, MD. This is her blog, created in a fit of over-caffeination and by the urging (and by “urging” we actually mean peer pressure) of dear friend and fabulous food blogger cucina nicolina. When she’s not writing, Jessica can be found drinking coffee, taking city walks (sometimes while drinking coffee), fawning over other people’s puppies (usually while walking), listening to music way too loud in her car, and reapplying frosty lipstick.
Jessica has over a decade of national and regional writing experience. A contributing writer for Baltimore Magazine and regular contributor to AARP.org, she has written for daily, weekly and monthly publications throughout the Washington, DC and Baltimore metro areas, including The Washington Post, The Washington Times, The Washington City Paper, Baltimore Magazine, Urbanite, City Paper, The Gazette Newspapers and American Journalism Review.
She made her publishing debut in March 2011 as a contributor to the highly anticipated book It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living, and sits on the board of the American Advertising Federation of Baltimore (AAF) as chair of the organization’s Fusion Committee, which promotes diversity throughout Baltimore’s advertising community.
