For one year, we lived together as we attended Kent State University for journalism. We both graduated and moved on, but we wanted a way to keep in touch. While we lived together, we enjoyed cooking, throwing dinner parties and visiting local foodie attractions, such as the Haymaker Farmers’ Market, Beckwith Orchards and the Kent Natural Food CO-OP — so the natural way to stay in contact is food! That’s where this blog came in.
We hope you enjoy our slew of recipes, along with restaurant reviews, tips, gardening adventures and the occasional postcard or letter. Drop us a line anytime at email@example.com.
Oh … and if you’re wondering what DKS means, it’s short for the Daily Kent Stater, the newspaper we both worked for at Kent State and the reason we met.
Caitlin copy edited the food section of the Columbus Dispatch for two summers, and reading the weekly recipes made her mouth water. Now she lives in Roanoke, Va., where she got her first full-time job as a copy editor/online editor for The Roanoke Times. She’s a journalist by trade and an experimental chef for fun. She sometimes makes food that tastes bad. She’s not a vegetarian, but her favorite color of food is green (and — wow — many vegetables are green). Her favorite flavor is lemon.
Sarah lives in Chicago and works as an editor at the ABIS Group. She probably spends the vast majority of her income working her way through the city’s farmer’s markets, restaurants and grocers. Even though she’s fallen in love with Chicago’s food scene, she still holds Pittsburgh — her hometown — in high regard thanks to years of roaming the Strip District and gorging on Primati’s sandwiches. Deep dish pizza and Vienna beef dogs are no match for Sarah’s Steel City stomach.
