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. Kathryn, I’m not a baker at all so I can’t help you with that, but I’d try googling “high altitude baking.”

  2. Since I’ve moved to Utah, I simply cannot bake anything right. I know it’s the altitude thing, but how do you fix this problem. I’m so tired of flat muffins and heavy bread. Help!


  3. Ronan’s Mama,
    I have a lot of recipes using Dreamfields, and have written about the pasta too. I’ve never seen anything from South Beach officially saying it’s approved, but I ate it all the time I was dieting most strictly and it didn’t stop my weight loss.

    You could find the recipes and posts I’ve written about it by entering “Dreamfields Pasta” in the search bar in the upper left column.

    Thanks for the nice words about the blog.

  4. Have you tried dreamfields pasta? It is supposed to be low carb, high fiber. I was just wondering if you knew anything about it and if it is allowed on the S.B. diet.
    I love your blog and all its recipes. Thanks for the inspiration. It really is more than just eggs on S.B.

  5. Anonymous, congratulations on the 104 pounds. I bought the Halloumi at Smith Food King on 2100 South.

  6. Hi Kalyn,

    I am a very satisfied customer regarding SBD-have lost 104 lbs since 3/8/07.

    I really need to know where to buy halloumi cheese as I dont know which store you bought it at in your neighborhood. Yes, I am from SLC,UT.

    Thanks for all those wonderful emails that have kept me on SBD.

  7. I wanted to thank you for your blog!! I have been a devoted south beacher for 4weeks. I am just now allowing myself to go to phase 2. I was trying to lose 20 pounds( lost 10 pounds already). Your blog has made it simple in addition with the SBbooks. I use your site daily for great recipes. Thanks for your hard work and dedication!

  8. Kelly, sorry but I don’t think I’ve seen that recipe.

  9. Hi, Kalyn!

    I followed South Beach pretty religiously a few year ago. One of my favorite recipes was for a mocha smoothie made with cottage cheese, fat-free half & half, ice, and instant mocha mix (fat-free & sugar-free). I cannot find that recipe anywhere, and I don’t remember the exact amounts used! Are you familiar with it? If so, could you send it my way?

  10. I don’t know if my Costco still has it, haven’t looked recently. I would write directly to Costco or check their web site.


  12. I believe I read in the South Beach Diet book that the more fiber that we take in breaks down whatever sugar that we do have. I believe in staying away from alot of sugar and increasing fiber. I have seen alot of sugar free products out there and even some of the whole wheat breads they may say are sugar free but I’m sure there is a sweetener or molasses that they make up for in the ingredients. I know we need some sugar in us but I do try to keep it to a minimum. What are your thoughts on the fiber and sugar balance?

  13. Under “South Beach Stuff” in the sidebar there is a post about the breads I recommend.

  14. Kalyn,

    What varieties of SBD friendly whole wheat bread do you recommend now? Is Natures Own ok?

  15. Kalyn,

    I did see your section about whole wheat bread and now there are some new varietys in the Walmart’s out there. Nature’s Own makes one that is a Double Fiber Whole Wheat bread with Omega 3. I still try to stay away from all bread but Dr. Agatston said whole wheat, multi grain or rye bread is ok. If they would get that high fructose corn syrup and the sugars out of the bread it would be better. I do check the ingredients label. I might have picked up a bad variety because it had that word enriched wheat flour listed in the middle of the ingredients. It is 50 calories per slice. Maybe they should sweeten these whole wheat breads with sucralose instead.

  16. Ozarkman, congratulations on your success. I agree that South Beach is nutritionally sound. In fact, my doctor recommends it to his patients!

  17. Kalyn,

    Hi there, I just wanted to tell you I have been on the South Beach Diet as well and started back in July 2006 and now currently I am at Phase 3 and have lost 91 pounds. I was 230 pounds at the beginning and now down to 140 pounds. I am continuing the maintenance phase for the rest of my life so I can stay at this weight. I believe the South Beach Diet has alot of solid fundamentals and principles into what we should eat and not eat. Obesity is a problem in this country and Dr. Arthur Agatston said it is a leading contributor to heart disease and heart attacks. I have cut down completely on many of the bad foods I used to eat and now I eat more salads, high protein meats, seafood, reduced fat cheeses, and egg substitutes and green tea. I would have to say I have been sticking with the plan and it has worked as far as eating the right types of foods. Life is better on the South Beach Diet and it is the number one diet of all the diets out there in my opinion.
