Roswell Neighbor Article

The Roswell Neighbor did an article on local bloggers this week. I'm one of them. Hooray!

If you're one of the new readers brought here today, welcome! Here's what you need to know about this blog.

I love food. I love trying new recipes and eating new things. I stuffed my face full of Korean BBQ the other day and I loved it. I shop at local farmer's markets when I can. My cooking influences are mostly traditional southern food, with a healthy dash of Asian inspired cuisine. I love to bake, but so far I've been too impatient to manage a decent pie crust. But I do plenty of cakes, cookies and quick breads, along with an assortment of yeasted breads. I love finding hole in the wall places with fabulous food and sharing them. I am not a fan of chains, or fast food (unless it is Chik fil a).  My weakness is Chinese take out. I'm a busy lady who is on a budget, but still wants to eat sustainable, healthy food.  This is what I write about.

When I'm not cooking or blogging, I'm a fan of science fiction and fantasy. I am best known as a fan of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. I run a programming track for it at Dragon*Con and I chair a convention dedicated to it here in Atlanta. I'm the kind of fan that gets early copies of the manuscript for the next Wheel of Time novel "for feedback". It's finally turned into a part time job doing microblogging and social networking for the publisher. If I disappear from blogging for awhile, it usually means that I'm either getting ready for a convention, or there's a Wheel of Time book coming out.  Yes, the whole thing is slightly ridiculous, but its also hella fun.

I hope you enjoy reading.

Jennifer - Was excited to read your Neighbor article. Sounds like we share much of the same feelings and experiences with food. I'd like to invite you to experience my food business, Mom's Table, on Canton St. here in Roswell - home-cooking to go. (www.momstableonline.com). Hope to meet you soon!

Hey, I used to work for Neighbor Newspapers, read the story. I'm also a HUGE wheel of time fan, and my husband's friends with the dragon*con folks. We've gone and want to go back this year now that the kids are bigger. I like your blog, very cool.
