Message from Nancy

Welcome! Let me start by saying that I’m a long-time (I’m talking decades here!) cookbook author and food writer. I’ve actually been enthralled with reading cookbooks since I was about nine, and the idea that I’ve been able to spend my whole adult life creating them still boggles my mind. I get to play with food and words—my two great passions—every day! As a result, you’ll find a mix of (always tested) recipes, how-tos on cookbook and recipe writing, occasional personal stories, and even posts on publishing trends and spotlights on my own and other favorite cookbooks.

Special How-to Info on Writing a Cookbook
If you share my early dream of writing cookbooks (or you just love reading cookbooks), you’ll be especially interested in my how-to articles and insights to help aspiring authors along the way. And if you have any specific follow-up questions, ask them right in the comments section of my blog posts. I always try to answer promptly and provide useful info if I can. For a list of useful how-to stories on my site, see the Articles page. (For info on my writing and culinary background, see my Bio page.)
