Growing up in a home where healthy meals were made from scratch the thought of making her own food quickly became a reality. With the help of her sister Jill Vos, Jennifer began using family loved recipes

    Indoor activites for kids at Smock Cafe

    Though only a few weeks old, Smock Cafe and Wonder Workshop is already buzzing with activity. Toddlers playing with quaint wooden toys, moms meeting for mom groups, children huddled around the two long crafts tables, hands sticky with glue and paint.
