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.

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.

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. Thank you, but I'm chuckling! (You should look back in the archives and see some of my earlier food photos. I'm slowly trying to re-take them but there are still some pretty dismal ones left!)

    But interesting ingredients and simple preparation methods is always my goal! Easy is good!

  2. Wow, everything you make is so beautiful. And even better, not too complicated of a recipe! I am inspired and plan on trying many of your recipes. Thanks so much!

  3. Patsy, in the right sidebar about 1/3 way down is a section that says "Subscribe Here." You can put in your e-mail address and the blog will come to your e-mail every time I update.

    Enjoy that swiss chard; I just picked the very last of mine a few days ago!

  4. Hi Kalyn,
    I grow a lot of vegetables (I live in FL), and have all this swiss chard that I've never cooked before. I just found your blog, and love it! I won't ever throw away the swiss chard stems again!
    Now, please tell me, how can I have your blog delivered to my mail box every day (or whenever you post it)?
    I couldn't find a place to do that.

  5. Mary, just in case you check back here if you e-mail me (kalynskitchen at comcast dot net) I'll tell you why I'm not publishing your comment with the black bean brownies link.) Didn't want you to think I was just ignoring you.

  6. Mary Ann, I wish I could tell you more, but it was nearly 7 years ago that I first started the diet, and it's a bit foggy in my memory. I know that I lost about 35 pounds fairly quickly, but it took me nearly a year to lose those last 7 pounds (although I may not have been trying as hard as I could!) I probably did Walk Away the Pounds at least a few times a week, because I've been doing that for quite a few years. I have been eating this way ever since then (with some splurges for holidays and special occasions.) My weight fluctuates up and down about 5-7 pounds but I never let it get much higher than that. If it does, I go back to phase one for a few weeks.

    Good luck with the diet. I know it will work if you stick with it!

  7. What a lovely collection of recipes – thank you! I'm in Phase One of South Beach and would love to know more about your personal experience with this diet. You lost 42 pounds which is about the same amount I'd like to lose. Besides following the Diet, what else did you do? How long did it take you to lose that weight?

  8. Fran, how fun hearing from you. It sounds like you're well on the way to more healthful eating. Glad the job is turning out to be a good resource for you.

  9. Dear Kalyn!
    I know you get hundreds of messages, but I still wanted to tell you how grateful I am that you made this blog and post all those incredible ideas! Just very recently my cousin inspired me to try the SBD, I had never heard of it. Although I am a doctor (and you should think we learned about nutrition and how the body reacts to different foods in med school…….) I really have tried to figure out how I can eat, not be hungry, and not keep gaining weight. And although I tried a kind-of freestyle Weight Watchers some years back (and lost about 35 pounds), I gained it all back when I started to work in a hospital where it was really stressful, and I was eating all kinds of crap on the go, just to survive from sugar-low to sugar-low. Now I finally understand the carb mechanism! What an insight. As I am eating only very little meat (due to having a kosher kitchen where it is rather difficult to just quickly make some turkey breast, as it involves a lot of rearranging and cleaning etc) I needed to really dig into lowfat cheese and eggs. Your egg-recepies are a revelation! In fact, I just pulled the breakfast casserole with asparagus and mushrooms out of the oven. And just now tried your method of hard-boiling eggs (it works! They are perfect!)

    The egg muffins have worked really well, too, and provided lunch for a week.

    I also tried a sweet variety of the egg muffins: Used some rhubarb (vegetable Phase 1!), sweetened it with stevia (guess you could use splenda), and mixed some ricotta and ground nuts with the eggs. Not bad.

    So far, I hated diets, as they always mean to be hungry, hungry, hungry. Not anymore! I am really curious to see how much weight I can lose on this feast… According to the SBD book I might be a little more challenged, as I am a "pear" and not an "apple", but hey, with your recipes to add variation and provide inspiration, it should not be all that much of a problem.

    Thank you thank you thank you!

    Greetings from Switzerland, my current home (where you don't get Spike, although I like it and use it when I am in the US 🙂 )


  10. Ana, sorry but I've never heard of that bread. I'd try google and if it's posted online it should come up.

  11. Dear Kalyn,
    Do you have a recipe for Kneaders wonderful Pumpkin Bread?
    Thanks a lot,

  12. Trulie, it does sound good!

  13. I love your blog! I came up with another stuffed mushroom recipe. Check it out, and I would love your feedback. I am on Phase 1 so I guess desperation leads me to invention. 🙂 Is this good?

    Thanks for your time!!! God bless you! Could not do it without some of your recipes!! <3

  14. Kim, I appreciate the vote of confidence, but I don't think that's something I'd ever want to do. (I don't even plan out my own meals for more than a day at a time, if that!)
    I can barely keep up with the blog, and I'm not an expert in the diet either, so I don't know that I'm qualified to make those kinds of recommendations.

  15. I love your recipes and have tried several and my husband and I have really enjoyed them. My question is, have you ever thought about creating an online meal plan? I am trying to lose weight and because I am eating a totally different way than from how I was raised, I am useless when it comes to thinking of ideas in the kitchen. I have seen "2 weeks" meal plans in diet books, but they include recipes for meals I would not be able to find ingredients for or stuff I would not eat. Your recipes are easy to make and I can find items at my local grocery store. I know what you are thinking- "Another blog! What!! I don't have time for this one!" LOL!! Do you have any suggestions? Thanks again!


  16. Thanks Holly. It always makes me happy to know the blog is useful for someone. If you have good recipe ideas, always love to see them.

  17. Hi Kalyn,
    I just want to say how incredibly impressed I am with you, your dedication and your blog… way to go, my friend! Thank you for what you are doing each day to help so many. I am currently helping a friend who was diagnosed with Type2 diabetes and although I am a product of heathy choices, healthy eating and a life in the the restaurant business, it's nice to know I have a "friend" I can turn to when I need help and new ideas.

    I have a few recipes of my own I may send to you that I think you'd have fun with. Thanks again for being there, your blog is out of this world!

  18. It sounds like you'll need to use the search bar and recipe index to find recipes that either don't contain dairy or things (like breakfast casseroles) where the cheese can be left out. I know there is a post on snacks (which you can find by entering "snacks" into the search bar.) As for desserts, the only suggestions I have are the ones listed in the index. (Sorry, but I don't have time to find recipes and give personal suggestions about what people should eat; that's why I've spent many hours making the recipe index easy to use.)

    Good luck! The diet will work if you stick with it; I'm sure of that.

  19. Hi Kalyn, My husband and I will be starting SB diet.I am trying to get recipes that don't have any milk (breakfast).Snacks are a huge problem as cheese tends to be a big choice.Any suggestions, other than what's in the SB diet book? Also any suggestions on how to make it from after dinner to bedtime without going crazy.Could use some suggestions for desserts (no milk). Thanks for all your hard work, this makes me hopeful that we can actually succeed at this diet.

  20. Amy you're welcome! Good luck with the diet; I know it will work if you stick with it.
