Welcome to my blog. If you’re new to this page, I have stopped writing here and now write on Substack. Sign up for a free subscription below.
I If you are already a reader, I want to keep up the conversation going! Since you originally signed up, I hope you will enjoy hearing from me again on Substack.
I write a free monthly newsletter there. I originally launched it in 2005 as a way to keep in touch with students and clients. It’s grown quite a bit, and writing it has been fun and rewarding. I want to dedicate myself to it now, to create the best possible content. As a result, I’ve paused the blog.
If you already receive my Substack newsletter, thank you. It means a lot to have you as a reader in this new format.
I also write a paid version of the newsletter that comes out midway through the month, with different content. So far I’ve included interviews with the superstars in our industry about how to write for them or what they’ve learned as high achievers. I’ve written posts about which country owns a dish, and about the future of food writing through ChatGPT. Please consider signing up to support my work It’s only $2.50 per month, about the cost of a cup of coffee.

Rachel Riggs says
Yep, I’m an OG blog reader!!! Happy to follow you over to Substack!
Wow, really? That makes me so happy Rachel. Thank you.
Will always follow you 😉 and read your marvelous insights. Sounds like a good decision; focus on what makes you happier and is more productive. It’s kind of why I started my little monthly newsletter, to stay in touch with readers and share with them more than just recipes, especially through seasons where my site was undergoing big back end changes or I was dealing with life. hugs!

Ditto what Sally said – I’ll follow you where ever you go. You are a great inspiration.
Aww thanks Julia. You are an inspiration to me because you are so good at creating your own projects. I’m glad you are close enough for IRL visits.
Hi Sally! Oh I didn’t know you started a newsletter. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the kind words. I’m so glad we stay in touch.
