How to Contact Kalyn

Thanks for Your Interest in Kalyn’s Kitchen!
Kalyn’s Kitchen is my personal blog, where I share recipes I’m cooking in my own kitchen. I hope my blog is a resource for anyone who likes the kind of creative carb-conscious recipes this blog is known for.

How to Contact Kalyn:
To contact me, send your e-mail to kalynskitchen (at) comcast (dot) net. (This address needs to be converted to normal e-mail format.)

Answering Questions from Readers:
I love to hear from people who are readers of Kalyn’s Kitchen and will do my best to answer simple questions, although I don’t have the training or the time to give full-fledged dieting advice. If your question is about a specific recipe, please consider leaving it as a comment on that post so others can benefit from the answer.

How to Leave a Comment:
To leave a comment, just click where it says “Leave a Reply” at the end of the post. Some comments will come to me in an e-mail and won’t show up on the blog until I publish them, and I’m not sitting by the computer waiting for comments 100% of the time, so thanks for your patience!

Reach me Through Social Media:
I try to check in with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest a few times each day, and try to respond to people who reach me there, but I can’t always keep up with comments on social media so if you really need to reach me, leaving a comment on the blog or sending e-mail is better.

About Advertising on Kalyn’s Kitchen
If you are promoting a food-related product and would be interested in advertising on a network of food blogs, please contact She Media. I only accept advertising through this network, and  don’t sell text links or do sponsored posts of any type.

My Thoughts About Reviewing Cookbooks or Products
This blog is about what I’m cooking in my own kitchen, so I’m only interested in talking about cookbooks or products I’m personally using and would happily buy again. Because I have limited time to try new products or cookbooks, I have decided to no longer accept books or other products for review. I do love to mention cookbooks I’m using and talk about my favorite products on the blog, but when I do that I enjoy being able to tell my readers that I bought them myself. (If you’re a food blogger who has written a book, feel free to drop me a line to let me know about it and if it interests me I’ll be happy to buy your book.)

Working with Other Bloggers:
I don’t use guest posts of any kind, and don’t participate in any kind of sponsored campaigns. I am happy to have my work included in blogger recipe round-ups (as long as it doesn’t include the actual recipe and uses a format that features a photo plus a link to get the recipe from my site.)

  1. Tanya, South Beach is based on the glycemic index, and honey and maple syrup are both going to be very high. Definitely for phase one and probably phase two they wouldn’t be permitted. Ingredients like this can be used in very small amounts, such as in a salad dressing or marinade. You might want to check out agave nectar, which is a low glycemic natural sweetener very similar to honey. If you enter it into the google search bar on my site you can find some things I’ve written about it.

  2. Hi Kalyn! Kudos on having a terrific site for people who are looking for a lifestyle change when it comes to food. Not only has the site been super helpful with tips and advice from other bloggers, you have done us a great service by showcasing your recipes as well! Well done!

    That said, I only have one question. Is honey or maple syrup ever allowed on South Beach?

    Thanks so much!

  3. Hi bugs,
    I’m afraid I don’t have time to organize a seed exchange, but maybe someone will see it here. Have you tried Googling “seed exchange?” That might work.

  4. Hi Kalyn, do you have any seed exchanges for my veggie garden? I wish that you’d put up a seed exchange… I live in Asia and I wonder what tomatoes would grow in a tropical climate? Anyone wants tropical seeds? email me at bugsey2@gmail.com and I wish to have seed exchange partners..

  5. Kayln:

    Love your blog!….it has been a life-saver to me, it has helped me immensely stay on track with South Beach. I tried the peanut butter oatmeal, but used almond butter and a sprinkle of poppyseed and made it into almond-poppyseed oatmeal. Let me tell you, YUMMMMMMMMM!

  6. WOW!!! Thanks for posting so many quick and easy recipes. Thanks for making it easier for me to stick to my new way of eating. I love your snack suggestions for during the work day.

  7. Great receipes! Congratulations!

  8. Anonymous, I only post recipes that I’ve tried and photographed. I would recommend either buying the book or looking at it in a bookstore. It wouldn’t be fair to the book publisher or my readers to start posting recipes I haven’t even tried, and I can barely keep up with the recipes on my own “to-try list” (I teach school all day) so I can’t really take requests about what to cook, sorry.

  9. I am looking for the South Beach Peppery Zucchini Pasta recipe.
    I think it was in the Summer South Beach Cookbook. If you have it please post it. Thanks so Much!

  10. Hi Perry Girl.
    I did try the Penzeys buttermilk dressing mix once (long time ago) and was not impressed. I use the Hidden Valley Ranch type and when I wrote an article for Blogher.com about the safety of msg I was very surprised to discover that the conclusion of most studies is that it’s not harmful. I’m not trying to convince you to use it, I just thought you might not have heard the latest about it. Anyway, good luck finding something you like. I just bought a big bottle of Uncle Dan’s Classic Ranch salad dressing mix at Costco, but didn’t try it yet.

  11. Kalyn wonderful blog! And thank you for your profession, I have great respect for teachers.

    I really like your Chipotle Ranch Dressing – the best flavor I have found so far is with Hidden Valley Ranch buttermilk packets the issue is that HV includes MSG..so I am trying to find an alternative that tastes as good. I have tried about 4 different kinds … all not as good as when I make it with HV buttermilk.

    Has anyone ever tried the Penzey Spice Buttermilk Ranch? Is it good?

    Just thought I would ask before I ordered a large bag.

  12. Chris, I wrote a post about how to make perfect hard-boiled eggs and it’s one of my most-read posts, so you are apparently not the only one who has that problem. Hope that will help.

  13. Hi Kalyn…I’m always having trouble with boiling eggs, they nver come out uncracked..lol..is there a secret?

  15. Hi Kalyn, I think reading all your BlogHer recipes and looking at the great recipes here is starting to rub off on me. I even posted a recipe on my own blog the other day. Now that’s a first!


  17. Thanks everyone for the nice feedback. I really appreciate hearing from you!

  18. Hi Kalyn,
    I just wanted to say thank-you for such a wonderful SBD friendly spot to go for great recipes and ideas.
    I found it in a message in a yahoo SBD group. A great page all around.
    Thanks Kalyn.

  19. Nice blog Kalyn.

  20. This blog is a godsend! My hubby and I are just finishing our Phase 1 of SB and are so amazed by the results. I have never followed such an easy plan… however, we were looking for more meal ideas and, lo and behold, I found your amazing blog filled with pleasing recipes and great comments. Thanks so much for all your hard work – I, too am a full-time teacher and know how stressful life can be as an educator… but I am definitely glad you take the time to maintain such a great site. I look forward to trying these recipes!
