The Foodie Gazette was created by Margaret Meps Schulte, the award-winning author and illustrator of The Joyful Bear and Strangers Have the Best Candy.

Meps writes:
When I moved aboard a boat in 2003, I needed a solution to manage my large collection of recipes. There were newspaper clippings, scribbled notes from my mother, and recipe cards from friends, the kind that read “From the kitchen of _____.” My former mother-in-law was a treasure trove of wonderful recipes, and I’m grateful to Sharon Stellrecht for her encouragement and her contribution to this collection.

At the time I began, food blogging was in its infancy, but my WordPress blog served as the perfect database for such a large collection of treasured recipes. Along the way, I discovered that I didn’t want to write about food as much as I wanted to write about people, so I published the award-winning Strangers Have the Best Candy and reserved the Foodie Gazette for my personal recipe collection. I haven’t tried every recipe on the site, so Reader, beware!
