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.

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.

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 Kalyn, Your blog is truly remarkable and helpful on so many levels for a beginning cook like myself. As with most folks, I've been recommended by my doctor to follow a more healthful eating style and his guidelines are very similar to south beach – just a bit more restrictive to fit my needs. So I have a general question – a lot of your recipes use olive oil, and if not for that one ingredient, the recipes would meet the criteria. A specific example is Roasted Broccoli with Lemon and Percorino-Romano Cheese -do you have a suggestion as to what one could substitute when that ingredient is called for? I can't use any oils – peanut, canola etc. in cooking. In general is olive oil used as flavoring or simply as a binding for other ingredients? I appreciate any hints you can provide.

  2. Jen, Glad to hear you are having success and enjoying the blog. The information I've seen says limit it to 1/2 avocado per day.

  3. hey! i love this place of yours…i stumbled upon it about a week ago while searching for some awesome, healthy recipes…which i found! 🙂 good job btw, you've contributed to a week of amazing suppers at my house…needless to say, i'm nearing the end of my very first 'official' day on SB. it's ridiculous how excited i am about it cause it's promising for weight-loss but more importantly, so good for your body on the inside too. i feel incredibly strong urges to discuss it with anyone who crosses my path…however, i mostly manage to control myself.
    anyway, there's a point to this comment and it is that although there are recipes in the book that include avocados, there is no real discussion on them. i assume they're acceptable…but i'm unsure and as we are huge fans, i don't want to sabatoge our first phase by overdoing it.
    if you could let me know, i'd totally appreciate it. and again, you're doing such an incredible job. i appreciate finding such a wonderful site…blog? whatever it is, i like it.

  4. Misshotrod, thanks so much for writing. I'm so glad to hear that the blog has been helpful to you (those kinds of stories make my day!)

  5. Kalyn,
    I wanted to start South Beach for years but thought Phase 1 would be too difficult. Then one day just by chance I found your website. I know this sounds silly but I cried. It was just the right time for me to find this. I'm am not cooking savy at all especially with herbs and vegetables. I have printed & tried many recipes and I have lost 8 lbs in 3 weeks. I am now on Phase 2 and find I'm missing Phase 1. You have helped me more than words can express. I just wanted to let you know how much you are appreciated.
    By the way, my favorite recipe is your Cauliflower Au Gratin with Sharp Cheddar Cheese & Parmesan. OMG, it is the bomb.
    Thank you a million times and I wish you & your family the best holidays ever.


  6. Mindymom, Bon Appetit is a spice blend. In the U.S. I use McCormick brand, which you might be able to find online. The ingredient list on the bottle says "salt, MSG, celery seed, and onion." I've also used something called Beau Monde seasoning, which has a similar flavor. If you can't find those, I'd just grind together some salt, celery seed, and dried onion and it would be very close.

  7. Hi Kalyn

    Great site – thank you. I am from Australia and having difficulty with one of your recipes. It asks for 2tbs of "bon appetit"? Is this a condiment? Can you describe what's in it?

    Thank you.

  8. Hi Nathan,
    I'm doing great, thanks for asking! I am loving being home so I have more time to cook and take photos for my blog. I do miss the kids some though.

    I bet you and Bill are the two smartest kids in that math class, no doubt about it!

  9. Hi, Mrs. Denny. This is Nathan king and I just want to ask how you are doing. can you belive it?! I am in JUNIOR HIGH!! JUNIOR HIGH!!! I am in seventh grade. Bill and me are in Algebra together.

  10. Desirae, I'm not a fan of Sweet Potato Pie, but you could adapt a recipe using Splenda or even Brown Sugar-Splenda blend. I do love this recipe for Soy Glazed Sweet Potatoes. They're actually fairly sweet and don't really taste much like soy sauce, just slightly salty.

  11. Hey I love your site and have been snagging recipes since I found it. Well the holidys are coming up and I can't find any healthy sweet potato pie recipes, I thought I would since sweet potatoes are SB approved… any ideas?

  12. Anonymous, thanks for the nice feedback. I've never seen anything about plantains, but I'd guess eat very sparingly, same as bananas, which is one of the few fruit that says "limited" in the small guidebook.

  13. Hi Kalyn,

    I love your blog and get tremendous compliments whenever I make your recipes for events.

    I was wondering what the South Beach Diet says about plantains. I didn't locate any on your website and haven't been able to determine if they are acceptable for Phase 2. Any thoughts would be helpful.


  14. Anonymous, there never never been any Sushi recipes posted here. I have written about some sushi restaurants though. You could enter "sushi" in the search bar and see if one of those looks familiar.

  15. hey I recently found a sushi recipe on this site that calls for salmon, cream cheese, dill, sesame seeds to name a few. However, I cant find the link anymore if someone could post the link to that recipe Id greatly appreciate it.

  16. Great site and I was so happy to find this as I start The South Beach Diet. I have printed many of your recipes and have bookmarked the site. Thanks so much for maintaining the site and taking time to answer questions.

  17. Kalyn, your blog has been instrumental in getting me through the first phase of South Beach! The recipes in the book are so bland which makes it difficult to get through the 2 weeks. Thank you for your blog!! I've sent your blog to so many people I know who are thinking about South Beach but are discouraged by phase 1. Thank you, thank you!! Keep up the amazing work!!!

  18. Hi Kalyn,

    Thank you so much for devoting your time to this great website!! I love Sunset Magazine's recipes, and have a few good cookbooks, but your selection is so comprehensive and all on one site!! Gourmet here I come!! Much appreciation, YA-Glendale, CA.

  19. Kalyn, Thanks so very much for your website and blog. My husband and I are starting South Beach on Monday and thanks to you I have all my delicious recipes ready. I am sure the diet will be a success for us, in large part due to your fantastic recipes!!!

  20. Street Talk and anonymous, thanks for the nice feedback. It means a lot to me.
