Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you?
I’m a life-long foodie. I wrote articles for Sally’s Place website (www.sallybernstein.com) and have been both a recipe tester and a recipe twister. I also worked as a cook for a fraternity house (don’t ask!). Through it all, I have always been, from first course to last, a writer.
In 2013, I published my first book, Kosher Sutra, a food memoir.
I taught sign language to chimpanzees, composition to college freshmen and writing to technical writers, English majors, and Engineering graduate students. I’ve worked as a technical writer, documentation manager, and an engineering manager. She owned her own business communications company for several years.
I live with my husband, Mark Saunders, in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, along with a huge blonde standard poodle, who almost outweighs her, and a very opinionated cat, who scares her.
Why do you call it The Knish Chronicles? I didn’t want a blog that was my name. That seems way too arrogant. My husband loves the word knish. He also loves knishes, which I made sometimes, but not frequently enough for him. Anyway, I thought The Knish Chronicles sounded like fun and I like fun.
Do you have a recipe for knishes posted somewhere around here? Yes, I do. The recipe is posted under the recipe tab. I can’t claim that the recipe is authentic or traditional, but it sure tastes good.
Who takes the photographs on The Knish Chronicles? Usually I take the photos, unless otherwise noted. This is probably a good time to remind you that all the text and photos on this site are copyrighted. Please contact me if you would like to use anything from this site.
Who designed your site?
I did, can’t you tell?
Is there a list or an index of recipes around here somewhere?
Yes, a list of recipes is on the first page.
What’s this about a book?
I just finished writing and publishing a book – Kosher Sutra – that is best described as food memoir. I self-published it.You can buy it from this blog , or from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It is available in either paperback, or e-book format (Kindle or Nook).
Can I link to your blog?
Of course you may! I’m honored that you’d like to.
I see you are in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. How did you get there? I hear it is beautiful.
It is beautiful. My husband, Mark Saunders, and I moved here in 2005 for two years, then moved back to the States for three years. We returned to San Miguel in 2011 and plan to stay for awhile. We love it here. My husband published a book (Nobody Knows the Spanish I Speak) about our adventure. You can order it from Fuze Publishing (http://fuzepublishing.com/). My book, Kosher Sutra, also talks about San Miguel de Allende.
