Some people start blogs because they want to be the next Pioneer Woman; some people have opinions they think the world needs to hear. Others have unstoppable and un-toppable recipe collections. Me, I just want to write and share my words with others. My tagline pretty much sums it up: I cook, I write, I carpool. That's my life.
That's my Happy Housewife bio. Now let's get down to brass tacks:
I am a freelance writer, editor and recipe developer. This blog showcases my work - in addition to the writing, I style and shoot all my photographs. I communicate with A Cook and Her Books' followers through Facebook and Twitter. Food is what I've always wanted to write about, but I will stay true to my newspaper background and tell you that I can write about anything for any reader.
If you want an idea of the stories that I really like, check these out:

I write stories for Examiner.com, too. My titles there are:

National Cookbook Examiner
