This is my weekly installment of “writing about writing,” in which I scan the world to find websites, books and articles to help writers.  

Whenever I’m asked to name my hobbies I always give the same responses: reading, walking, cooking.

These are the things in life that give me the most pleasure and that I do most consistently. And when I can combine them, bonus.

I feel I hit a two-fer when I discovered the marvellous website Copywriters’ Kitchen (if only it included something about walking, I’d call it a hat-trick!)

Lorraine Thompson can not only write, she also serves up delicious recipes week after week. I’m even making her Baked Eggs and Potatoes with Cilantro and Pumpkin Seed Pesto for dinner tonight. Her Warm Kale and Lentil Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette was a huge hit two weeks ago. And I never thought I’d see my kids eating kale — or at least not without complaining.

Bravely, Lorraine shares her family recipe plan with readers every week. I always scan it to see if there’s an idea I can steal borrow.

If you’re a busy writer desperately looking for dinner, I suggest you check out the Copywriters’ Kitchen. It’s well written and contains great recipes, fabulous photos and clear, easy-to-follow methods. Happy cooking!

    Another great site along these lines, Wednesday Chef, features the beautiful writing of Luisa Weiss, a former cookbook editor. She’s been trying out and critiquing recipes from the NY and LA Times for seven years now. She’s moved me to cook and to tears many times.
