Hi, I’m author of the children’s booksThePrincess and the Castle, ThePrince and the Dragon, and my newest release “Crying Bear Yes Bears Cry Sometimes Too.” I’m also author of the non-fiction book: Buzzzzzzzz What Honeybees Do. Buzzzzzzzz is available in Paperback and eBook;
and is a honeybee, beekeeping basics primer for children 4th grade reading level to adult. I’m currently working on a number of writing projects with releases out late fall 2012-early spring 2013.
For ten years, before authoring my books, I was the Senior Writer for Lowfat Weekly, a website, I founded. (If you’ve read my other blogs, then you are familiar with a post that told about why I closed down that website). In brief, while working at Lowfat Weekly part of my job was a recipe developer, and included adapting recipes to healthier Low Fat versions. I LOVED that challenge! As a food blogger, I was known as “The Recipe Lady,” and I enjoyed interacting with our viewers, emails, chats, and such. The problem I was having is that I didn’t want to only develop low fat recipes, as it left no room for old-fashioned recipes that make you think of your “Mum and home.” I literally have hundreds of recipes that I’ve developed and adapted before Lowfat Weekly, during, and since working there. My recipes are made from ingredients that I already have in my cupboards, on hand– and trust you do too! They are mostly recipes that you will be familiar with, but in some cases, will be posted with “this cook’s” designer twist. These recipes are also some of “my families” favorites, and will become yours too. You will find recipes on my blog that have been passed down from my mother, grandmothers, aunts, sister, friends, and friends of friends. All my recipes (most) are “quick and easy” to make including: Old-Fashioned Heirloom Recipes, Low Fat Recipes, Gluten-Free Recipes, Low Carbohydrate Recipes, Vegetarian Recipes, Italian Recipes, Fish and Seafood Recipes, Desserts and more… The Recipe Weekly is still being developed but please come back often to check out my progress!
