About Me

My photo
My friends call me the "grammar goddess." Really. ;-) I own a freelance writing, editing and tutoring business. Previously, I served three years as food editor for The Morning Sun in Mt. Pleasant, which kindled my interest in food writing. My other areas of expertise in writing include features, community news, architecture/construction and engraving/personalization. I have a frightening number of cookbooks and watch too many DIY, HGTV, Food Network, Cooking Channel and Antiques Roadshow (BBC and PBS versions) shows. And I tweak nearly every recipe I make.

Food Blogs I Recommend

I read a lot of food blogs before starting to write one myself. Some of my favorites are listed here by category.

Vegan/vegetarian/other special diets

Kitchen La Boheme
I love the artistic photos that go along with the food Alyssa Yeager writes about. It's fun and sassy. Takes quite a while to load up on dialup, though. (I know, I know. I must get into the 21st century soon.)

Vegetarian Times (self-advertised as the world's largest collection of vegetarian recipes).

Vote for up and coming chef finalists in a VT contest or enter the reader contest here. I have liked this magazine for years; the online version is equally good, featuring numerous resources.

General Healthy Food

Clean Eating. If I could have only one healthy food magazine, this would be it. The website gives a good sampling of what's available in each magazine. Also, see my prior review here.  


About.com features all kinds of dessert/baking recipes, including healthy ones. You simply click on the appropriate category or do a search. My friends from work and I found a bunch of recipes here for the cookie exchange we had last December. (I really wish I could recall which no-bake recipe I used, so I could give you the direct link. It wasn't the most healthy recipe, as it had a fair amount of sugar and butter, but it did have whole-grain rolled oats in it, at least.)


Medieval Cooking. Jennifer Strobel has some thought-provoking entries. Currently, she's in the throes of planning an authentic medieval-style feast. Updates fairly regularly, but apparently not more than once, maybe twice a week.
