In Which Deb Dana Professes Her Love for Breakfast

Since this week the Debs get the chance to talk about whatever we want, I shall talk about (what else?) FOOD. Specifically, breakfast, my favorite meal of the day. Some of you may belong to the legion of “breakfast skippers,” a group as mysterious and foreign to me as otherkins. It’s not that I judge or mock you. I just don’t understand. When I wake up in the morning, I…

Deb Dana Takes the Deb Quiz!

<tap tap> <tap tap> Is this thing on? Oh — hello!

As any writer will tell you, the feeling…

For Deb Dana, Heaven is an Apple Cider Doughnut

Have you ever eaten an apple cider doughnut? If the answer is yes, let’s talk. If the answer is no, you should probably get up from your computer right now and find one because you are missing out on one of life’s great pleasures. For several autumns when I was young, my parents would take my brother and I apple picking at Highland Orchards in West Chester, PA, along with…

Deb Dana Thinks about Food. A Lot.

Given last week’s post, I’m guessing most of you have figured out that I love food. If I’m not cooking it, I’m eating it, and if I’m not eating it, I’m thinking about it, and if I’m not thinking about it…no, scratch that, I’m pretty much always thinking about food. I love to dream up what I’m going to make for dinner tonight or have for breakfast tomorrow, and there’s…

Deb Tawna swaps kitchen coaching with her critique partner

Like most writers, I have critique partners. One is Cynthia Reese, a multi-published romance author in rural South Georgia. Since I’m in Oregon, we’re separated not only by a bunch of miles, but by vast differences in culture and lifestyle. It’s what I value most in the critiquing process, and it’s also produced some comedic moments in the culinary realm. We both love cooking, so it seemed natural to swap…

A Few of My Favorite Foods by Deb Meredith

My parents always had a strawberry patch in their garden. For several weeks a year, we had more strawberries then we knew what to do with. I would go out in my nightgown before breakfast to fill up my cereal bowl with fresh fruit. Red and flavorful, they taste nothing like the ones you get in the store in January. They’re incredibly juicy and stain your hands pink. My birthday…

Working on being unapologetic, by Deb Katie

I love food. I mean, I love it. I love shopping for it, looking at it, reading about it, watching shows about it… everything short of actually cooking it. But naturally, what I love the most is eating it. Living in a larger city and being married to a person who loves food as much as I do, I find a lot of opportunities to indulge. Anything that can be…

In which Deb Kristina doesn’t know what cuts her oatmeal

I miss enjoying food for the sake of it. But now the healthy living culture and environmentalism and trying to model healthy eating habits for my kids combined with alarmist reports about hidden dangers in our food (additives! Transfats!) have me feeling guilty every time I write a shopping list and anxiety-ridden over meal preparation (and as we know from my comments on the “Debs in the Kitchen” week, I’m…
