Welcome to Swanky Recipes. My name is Jessica Knott and I’m the creator behind this blog. I started Swanky Recipes in 2011 with a simple mission: to inspire and cater to the creative persona with a basic skill level.

Over the years, Swanky Recipes has evolved into a hub for modern cooks who are looking for easy-to-follow recipes that don’t compromise on flavor or style. Whether you’re an experienced cook or just starting out, you’ll find something here to suit your taste buds and culinary preferences.

At Swanky Recipes, we believe that cooking should be an enjoyable and creative experience. That is why we focus on recipes that are both approachable and fun to make. From easy weeknight dinners to special occasion desserts, we have you covered.

Thank you for visiting Swanky Recipes, and I hope you find inspiration and joy in our recipes. Feel free to reach out with any questions or comments. I would love to hear from you.

My passion for cooking began at a young age, growing up in the kitchen with my mom and family. Holidays were especially special, crafting a variety of dishes with them where we would bond over food and creativity.

As I got older, my interest in cooking and food only grew stronger. Over the years, friends and family asked me to share my recipes. Eventually, I picked up a camera and started creating recipes to share online for everyone.

Growing up in the Midwest, I learned how to cook and bake classic recipe staples. It was during my time living in New Orleans that I learned an entirely different cultural and culinary cuisine experience. The region inspired me to experiment, learn, master, and craft with new flavors and techniques in the kitchen.

Today, I am the creator behind Swanky Recipes, a food blog that focuses on inspiring others to cook homemade recipes in their own kitchen.

At Swanky Recipes, we believe that food is a powerful connector that brings people together. Sharing a meal with loved ones is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and it’s our mission to help facilitate those experiences by creating accessible and approachable recipes that everyone can enjoy.
