In 2009, Jennifer created the award-winning blog “Dividing My Time: Finding The Funnier Side of Life in Russia,” which highlights humorous and quirky aspects of her life as an expatriate in Russia, her cross-cultural marriage and offers up very digestible doses of Russian history, culture, politics, literature and her own wry observations of daily life in the world’s largest country. In 2011, Dividing My Time was re-christened “Russia Lite” and launched with a new visual design.
In 2011, Jennifer parlayed her passion for running great food to ground in Moscow in The Moscovore, an English-language site dedicated to gathering cooking resources, news, and recipes together in one place.
