First we asked Jennifer if she’s been able to establish any sort of routine during this time. “My mornings start in the kitchen,” she told us. “I am up early cooking for my family and posting recipes on my kitchen Instagram, @jenniferfisherkitchen. This has been a great outlet for me to continue to interact with our customers.”
It’s like going back to when I started the business almost 15 years ago and was doing it all by myself from my bedroom in my apartment.
Work continues for the entrepreneur, but at a slightly different pace. “In an effort to help keep everyone safe we have temporarily closed our retail store and office. That being said, our online retail store is still open and running. With the team at home and our fulfillment center still operational, I have been handling the everyday shipping, receiving and quality controlling of product,” Jennifer explains. “It’s sort of like going back to where I was when I started the business almost 15 years ago and was doing it all by myself from my bedroom in my apartment. It’s really making me appreciate how hard everyone works for us.”
JENNIFER FISHER'S FAVORITE QUARANTINE RECIPES
- CINNAMON ROLL BREAD: "Delicious and pantry friendly. Not to mention, you can eat a tiny sliver and feel satisfied."
- "YOU'LL NEVER BUY SALSA AGAIN" SALSA: "Make it on Sunday and leave in the fridge for the kids to snack on during the week."
- KETO CHEESEBURGER BAKE: "Covers dinner for at least two nights, depending on how many people live in your house; a fam favorite."
- "MOM DIDN'T GET TO EAT TODAY" FRIED RICE: "Easy to whip together and satisfying."
COCKTAILS, WFH ‘FITS AND OTHER NECESSITIES
You know what you need with snacks? Drinks. And just because you’re staying at home doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to a nice cocktail or two. Jennifer’s favorite is a Spritz Veneziano (aka Aperol Spritz), which she makes with Prosecco instead of champagne, large square ice cubes, a slice of fresh orange and olives on the side. However, if you don’t want to play mixologist, Jennifer also loves The Companion Wine Company. “The Malvasia is my current favorite. The entire can fits into the Big Buzz Glass. There is something incredibly satisfying about pouring an entire can of wine into one glass.”
While snacks, go-to quarantine recipes and cocktails are clearly very important essentials, we were wondering what else is on Jennifer’s stay-home must-haves list. “Comfortable sweats. The Perfect Pour Wine Glass. Jewelry Storage Tower—use your free time during quarantine to organize anything; doesn’t have to be jewelry. I find these storage units also work great for sunglasses or nightstand essentials,” she tells us.
Yes, the CFDA-award-winning jewelry designer is team sweats when it comes to her WFH ensembles. But that doesn’t mean she’s not making it chic. “I am alternating between my new Free City sweatsuit, Koral leggings, Baja East sweatshirts and my new favorite Lilybod leggings,” Jennifer says. But she uplevels it with Jennifer Fisher Jewelry, of course. “My non negotiables are my JF burnish cuffs and my New Essential Brass Necklaces.”
