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. i just wanted to say how great this site is. I am quite the foodie and am not easily impressed with recipies but everything i have tried from this site has been great. bravo keep it up

  2. Just found your blog! Wow! I especially like the real easy recipes! Thank you for sharing all you have learnt with us!

  3. Tammy, you're welcome. Glad you like the blog, and good luck on the diet!

  4. I am so happy to have found this blog. I did the South Beach Diet a few years ago and had good results, but did not continue and now, at 45 I am ready to try it again, and was searching for new recipes when I ran across your blog and I am just thrilled and can't wait to get started. I have always been a Monday dieter—-you know the one who always goes on a two day weekend binge so she can just add more weight to lose when she finally starts her diet on Monday? That is me. Not any longer. After spending some time looking at your recipes, I am starting tomorrow—on a Saturday!! Can't wait and I thank for you recipes that are real food. God bless you.

  5. Cira, thanks. I'm sorry to say, not one single recipe with plums on the blog that I can think of.

    I bet you could find some good ones on other blogs by searching Food Blog Search. It searches over 3,000 food blogs. Good luck! I'll keep my eye out for plum recipes.

  6. I am a BIG fan of yours. I would like to know if you have any recipes with plums. My tree has produced over 40 pounds of plums this year 🙂 Looking for entrees ( not neccessarily desserts)

  7. What a fabulous blog. You’ve done a great service here for so many folks trying to keep the weight off. Glad I found you when I searched “roasted brussel sprouts” the other night! BTW they were delicious.

  8. Joanne, glad you are enjoying the blog. I’m not familiar with that cereal, but check the label and if it has all whole grains, and no trans fats or sugar it should be okay. I would pay special attention to the sugar grams; it should be only a few grams of sugar per serving.

  9. I love your site – it’s been a great resource, since I’ve been South Beachin’ since February.

    I need the answer to this question, though! 🙂 On Phase 2/3 can you eat Kashi GoLean cereal? It tastes so good, I’m so afraid that it’s not legal!!

  10. Elyse, thanks so much for the nice feedback. I have a Canon Rebel XT, actually a model that’s a few years old. The newer rebels are even better. I feel like I’m barely starting to learn about using a digital SLR camera, so I’m glad you’re enjoying the photos.

  11. Hi Kalyn,

    I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how much I love your blog. The recipes are phenomenal and I have garnered praise for each that my friends have tasted. I also really appreciate the photographs of the food and was wondering what type of camera you utilize?

    Thanks so much,

  12. Jenn, I’m not sure I want to start a new section for lunches, but I can give some suggestions. Maybe I can do a post about it occasionally.

    Actually, I just take whatever I’m cooking that week for lunch for the most part, because I work in a school where we have a microwave. I eat soup a lot for lunch in the winter, and salads when the weather is warmer. Today I had leftover avocado and tomato salad for lunch, with a piece of whole wheat bread. Actually the thing I eat most of all for lunch is probably taco salad. I made the meat and freeze in small containers, then take the lettuce, meat, cheese, tomatoes, and dressing separately and combine at lunch time. Another favorite for lunch is black bean chili.

    Hope those ideas are helpful.

  13. Thanks for the Blog. Love the recipes. I do have a question. What do you bring to work for lunch? Could you start a section for brown bag lunches? Or even lunches that taste good if the they are refrigerated? This seems to be the part of the day that ruins my best efforts. Thanks,Jenn

  14. Debbie, you could use sugar-free barbecue sauce. That’s the only idea I have.

  15. I am new to the blog but am enjoying it especially since I just recently purchased my first crock-pot. I am looking for a recipe for pulled pork that would fit in with the South Beach Diet.All the ones I am finding call for a 16 oz bottle of bbq sauce.Thanks

  16. Hi Ria,
    Nice to know you’re a fan of the blog. I’m not sure what to offer for advice (actually I don’t know for sure what you mean by “an Indian meal.” But I don’t think you have to avoid carbs entirely to be successful on the diet. I know that Dr. Agatston advises people to sometimes just start with phase two if they find phase one too difficult. I think if you avoid white flour, potatoes, and starchy white rice and eat mostly vegetables, low-fat protein, and dried beans and legumes you will lose weight. Basmati rice is actually pretty low glycemic, and Indian dals and curries should be goood too. Good luck.

  17. Hi Kalyn, I read your blog at least once a day and I’m a big fan. My problem is trying to learn to follow the south beach diet in India as we mostly eat a Indian meal for lunch and dinner. Its hard to plan the menus and stick to no carb meals entirely. Can you help me with some pointers as to how to just get started..
    I have made some soups from the recipes on your blog – the chickpea one is a favourite at home.

  18. HJC, thanks so much for the nice feedback. As I’ve said, love getting comments like this.

  19. I just want to THANK YOU for your website. I know how much time it takes to do this. My boyfriend and I love all the recipes that you share. Without them I would never have all these wonderful healthy dinners to serve. I just made your white bean and artichoke dip and it was soooooo GOOD. I am never buying store made hummus again.

    Please keep more tasty dishes coming! =)

  20. SaysPhoebe, THANK YOU! I love knowing that the blog is helpful for people. As for the triglycerides, I was on medication for that and high blood pressure when I started South Beach, and now I am off both medications (woo hoo!) so stick with it!
