Donalyn Ketchum

I'm 58, and along with my husband of 37 years, I live in rural Upstate NY. 

I blog about our adventures in gardening and cooking, as we work to grow and produce as much of our own food as possible.  I believe that anyone can learn to make great food for themselves and for their family, and do it without the use of prepackaged or highly processed food.  I create recipes using the freshest ingredients I can lay my hands on, and share with my readers how they can recreate these simple but deeply satisfying dishes at home.

In addition, I seek out interesting products to share with my readers, often partnering with small, interesting companies to showcase their products.  I also blog for the Great American Spice Compay, creating recipes using their products.  I am available for recipe development for other companies, so long as they are not direct competitors of companies I am curretnly partnered with. 

I have been working with some local food based companies, photographing their products for use on their websites, and at their locations, and I have done some photography for menus and publicity materials for them as well.

I also enjoy photography [my photography site is donalynketchum.com] and in addition to our vegetable gardens, I have large flower and perennial gardens where I work off my small frustrations with life.  We have two daughters, two sons-in-law, and two grandkids - all fabulous beyond description.   Family is very important to us, and part of that is passing along our gardening and cooking mojo, which is enduring through the generations.
