I am thrilled that you’re visiting my blog, as it’s where my more informal, voice-y, and multi-genre pieces of writing live. It can be difficult to find other homes for this kind of work in the click-click world of digital media, so I am grateful (to myself!) that I created fat free balsamic.
With all that said, I am eager to share (some of) my published writing with you.
