Welcome to Food, Fun & Faraway Places! I’m so glad you found your way here! Let’s pretend we’re sitting at a cafe in France, or maybe Italy, or maybe…in your neighborhood! Grab your coffee or tea and let me take a minute to introduce myself and tell you a little about this site and how to find your away around.
My name is Kelly Stilwell and I’m the writer and photographer behind Food, Fun & Faraway Places.
This blog was born from my passion for writing. When my kids were little, I wrote for print magazines. It was my outlet, and a way to share the joys and frustrations of parenting. To learn more about me, visit my About page.
Eventually, an editor told me to start a blog. I wish I could remember which editor it was so I could thank them! This little blog has turned into my full-time business where I write about a few of my other passions:
Whether it’s a new dish I’m making at home, a tasting at a restaurant in Indonesia, rolling along the Canadian Rockies while having a gourmet lunch on a train, or fine dining on a River Cruise in France, I LOVE FOOD! All the recipes here are things I love to eat.
And because I love to eat, I will occasionally go back on Weight Watchers. The program helped me lose baby weight and works every time I work at it. I have never worked with Weight Watchers. I just love the recipes, so you will find some here.
Some of my favorite recipes:
I love movies, and I still have to pinch myself that I have interviewed so many celebrities and even walked the red carpet at premieres in Hollywood. If you love movies, too, check out some of the interviews:
In the past 7-8 years, I’ve discovered an insatiable passion for travel. I want to see the world! I travel with my family as well as on press trips where I learn about new destinations and share it with you here.
Some places are near:
Some are all about the journey:
Some took a while to arrive:
And finally, some of my favorite trips where I’ve also had amazing food!
I pin all this on Pinterest, so if you are more visual, check out a few of my boards.
Finally, I hope you’ve decided you would like to be part of the family at Food, Fun & Faraway Places! You’ll receive an email 2-3 times per week with all the goodness I can find!
As always, I’d love to hear from you! Contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for spending time here today!
