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. Hi Kayln. Just looking over yiur delicious stir fry receipes and was wondering what wok you were using? Stir fry is new to me so looking for suggestions.

    Thank you

    • Hi Lisa,
      I actually have a couple of woks, so it will depend on what recipe you’re looking at! My best wok is probably a carbon-steel wok I bought at The Wok Shop in San Francisco, MANY years ago, but it’s not that photogenic for the blog. I have an inexpensive wok I bought at Costco that turned out to be great, and also a Green Pen Wok that I love. Hope you have fun stir-frying!

  2. i am gaining weight on keto now.  i used to lose a lot consistently, but now, though i am extremely careful, i am gaining or losing an ounce here or there.  what can i do ?  why doesn’t it work anymore ?  any help would be appreciated because i feel like giving up but i have worked hard at this.

  3. Hi Kalyn,
    I am looking for side dish bean recipes that SBD 1. I’m looking for a bean to used as a protein to quickly satisfy hunger as a snack. I would like this made up ahead of time in the fridge. What do you recommend?

    • I don’t mean to be unhelpful, but I don’t have time to search out recipe suggestions for other people. And there is no way for me to know what recipes would appeal to you. I recommend you either use the search bar or look through the section for Dried Beans to find something that looks good. Good luck with phase one!

  4. Beans really should NEVER EVER be slow cooked. Because unless you boil raw beans for at least 10 min, you risk becoming very ill! I’m sure you prob havnt experienced food born illness from undercooked beans. But encouraging people to slow cook beans is highly irresponsible. If beans are slow cooked and do not reach boiling for 10 min you actually increase the danger of the beans. 
    Please remove this and any slow cook bean recipe from your site now

    • I believe if you investigate further, you will find that caution is only needed for Red Kidney Beans. I do have a note in my recipe about that.

  5. Could you try and do a “copy cat” recipe of this keto style?


    • Looks tasty, but desserts are so not my specialty and I wouldn’t have a clue how to make a keto version of this.

  6. Kayyn,
    Pizza chicken is great and been making regularly. I have 2 questions.
    Can I make it the day before and refrigerate overnight before cooking?
    Can it be made in a disposable aluminum pan?
    Keep up the good work on your recipes.
    Thank you,

    • My only concern about making the chicken ahead and refrigerating, then baking is that you want the chicken to be at room temperature when it goes into the oven. As long as you take it out and wait for that, I think it should work.

      I don’t have much experience baking in disposable aluminum pan, but I think a pan that conducts heat better (glass or ceramic) will work better for that recipe.

      Glad you are enjoying the recipes!

  7. I have been eating low carb, not keto, for 8 years but I have been bored with my cooking and have started looking for new recipes. I find it frustrating because every recipe calls for cheese, bacon or they are desserts and most vegetables are too expensive, like cauliflower.
    I am writing to you in hopes you can provide me with suggestions that will help me add some variety to my diet.
    Thank you for your time.

    • Hi Carol,
      There are over 2,000 recipes on this site and probably 3/4 of them are low in carbs, if not more. It’s impossible for me to know what would appeal to you, so I think the best suggestion I can think of is for you to think of an ingredient (or several ingredients) you’d like to use, and then enter them into the search bar on the site. That will give you all the recipes that use those ingredients. Use the orange tags at the top of the recipe (above the title) to check whether it is low in carbs. Hope that helps.

  8. Dear Kalyn,
    I absolutely love your recipe pages, which I stumbled upon looking for south beach diet recipe. I used the Southbeach diet many years ago and lost over 50 pounds. I was very successful and kept up the healthy eating and maintained my target weight of around 120-130. I’ve gained a few pounds within this past year and am really feeling it. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for the delicious recipes that I’ve made for myself and my husband. So, thank you again.
    Kind regards, 

  9. Ok, I wrote down the ingredients that I needed for a meal and bought the food, however, I can’t find the recipe. Here is what I bought, hopefully you can tell we the recipe name: Spike Seasoning, diced tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh Basil, Bell peppers, rotel and red curry paste. Thank you for your help.

    • Hi Karen,
      I’m on vacation so I just saw this message. I don’t know what that recipe is, but enter the ingredients into the search bar (separated by commas) and you should get the recipes that have those ingredients!

  10. I would love to make the Pepperoni pizza chicken bake–but can’t find a “print” button. Is it just me or is it missing from this recipe?

    • In the box where the actual recipe is located there’s a green button that says PRINT RECIPE. I know technology can be complicated, let me know if you don’t see that!

  11. Hello there,

    My name is Ivan Serrano and I am freelance journalist and food enthusiast.

    I know it has not been solicited, but I believe that with my knowledge in writing and my passion for food, my writings would fit really well with your website. I am also willing to provide a fee in exchange for publishing my articles. My goal is to get my name out there and improve my reputation.

    Can you please provide your rates for guest posts.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Ivan Serrano

  12. Would you know where I could buy Le Parisien salad dressing or have a receipe? It’s the best! Thank you.

  13. HELP!  In your ‘Just tomatoes’ Sauce for the Freezer, do you peel the tomatoes or not?  Your recipe does not mention that.  

    • No, the tomatoes are not peeled. That’s partly why you need to use a food processor to break them down. (I am puzzled why you didn’t ask this comment on that post though. Then other people could also see it!)

  14. I've been using this site for a long time and love it. One major problem though. I haven't been here in a while. Where is the login button. Where is the My recipes button. All i see is sign-up. I don't want to sign-up. I want access to my recipes. This site has become hard to navigate. Forget about using a smart phone for access. Horrible. Pop ups alone make me want to never use my phone for this site. Please help

    • Hi Scott,
      The Recipe Box feature was provided through Ziplist. Unfortunately they discontinued it on December 10. (There was nothing I could do about it.) You should have received several e-mails from there at the e-mail address you signed up with, and I also posted about it here as well as several times on the Kalyn's Kitchen facebook page. You can read that post here.

      We're in the middle of a re-design right now to make the site easier to use on a mobile device, hopefully that will help.

  15. I am not here to infringe on you and your blog. I have made your recipe and tweeked it. Very good. I thought I linked you from it. I wish you would have emailed me. My blog is for me and my friends to read. I use it as a reference and I make no money at all. I do not even have ads on it. I wish you could of been friendly and emailed me.

    • Tiffany, I am afraid I have no idea what you're referring to. That's because every time I run a report I find hundreds of people copying my recipes and photos in a way that violates my contract. Google penalizes me when so many people copy my stuff, and with so many instances of it happening there is no way I can write personally to each person and discuss it with them.

      And you could have written directly to me as well if you really wanted to discuss it.

  16. Kayla, as it says on the board, I only add people who are full time food bloggers.

  17. Hey Kalyn,

    I would love to join your Pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/kalynskitchen/best-slow-cooker-chicken-or-turkey-recipes/

    Could you please add me in this board. It would be so kind of yours. My Profile: http://www.pinterest.com/kaylabird103/

    Thanks, Kayla

  18. Amy I've only had Mexican vanilla that people have brought back to me from Mexico so I don't have any info about it, sorry.

  19. Where can I get Mexican vanilla & is there a specific name you recommend?
    Thank you, Amy

  20. Thank you Christine! Comments like that really make my day.
