Formerly from Long Valley, NJ, I'm now living in historic New Bern, on the beautiful North Carolina Coast, with my husband of many years. I write the food column for our neighborhood newspaper, and love tweaking recipes to make them healthier. Currently, I write three food blogs: Judy's Kitchen (my main blog), The Bear Cupboard (all about New Bern) and Crab Recipes. Your comments and queries are invited, and I hope you'll become a regular reader.
