When it rains, it pours:
  1. Baltimore Style magazine’s latest issue is all about food. There’s an article on the most stylin’ Baltimore food blogs, and mine is one of them. The issue is currently online, and, for those of you in the Baltimore area, it should be in print within the next few weeks. (The print version has screenshots of the blogs.) Here’s what they have to say about raspberry eggplant
Vegetarian and former Brooklynite Roopa Kalyanaraman offers an unpretentious approach to high-brow baked goods and ethnic fare. But meat? Fuhgeddaboutit. Kalyanaraman, who lives in Mount Vernon and works at the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute, started her blog in August after toying for years with the idea of writing a vegetarian cookbook with a stellar dessert section. Her favorite creations are recipes involving eggplant (of course), fruit-based desserts and cupcakes. “All my savory dishes are vegetarian and, while vegetarianism is pretty common these days, I still feel like many people don’t really know what to make for dinner that doesn’t have meat in it and isn’t boring or bland,” says Kalyanaraman, who offers recipes for everything from Zucchini Blossom and Taleggio Pizza to Stuffed Poblanos to Peach Melba Pie. House special: Kalyanaraman recounts what inspires her to create every recipe, offering a glimpse into her life and personality.
(For the record, I have never in my life uttered “fuhgeddaboutit.” Ah, stereotypes of Brooklynites.)
Check out the article to find out about some other great food blogs based in Charm City.
  1. I’m one of the featured blogs on the front page of Food Candy, a site/community for foodies and their blogs.
  2. Two of my cupcakes are posted on Cupcakes Take the Cake, a charming blog that features all things cupcake-related.
I was totally not this popular when I was in high school.
