Welcome to Food, Fun & Faraway Places! I'm so glad you found your way here!
If you ended up here surprised, it may be because something you clicked on has been redirected. Things change quickly in the world of the internet, and sometimes links no longer work. I hope you'll stick around and find something else you'd like to read!
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 like these oatmeal raisin cookies, a tasting at one of the best restaurants in Amman, Jordan, rolling along the Canadian Rockies while having a gourmet lunch on Rocky Mountaineer, or fine dining on a River Cruise with my family in France, I LOVE FOOD! All the recipes here are things I love to eat.
Some of my favorite recipes:
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 on a campaign. I just love the recipes, so you will find quite a few recipes that work with the Points program here, like this list of Weight Watchers desserts.
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'm grateful to be recognized as one of the Top Travel Blogs for 2020.
I travel with my family as well as on press trips where I learn about new destinations to share with you here.
