Wecoming a new blog to the family

by John MacBeath Watkins

In addition to my sister's blog, Studio Notes, my mother now has a new blog, Island Epicure, where she will be publishing recipes she's written for her Island Epicure column which she's written for many years, first for the Beachcomber, later for The Loop, both of which serve Vashon Island.

The first recipe is for Paella Valenciana, a recipe she picked up while traveling in Spain. Right now it's the only recipe, but I'm linking to that particular post because in no time at all, there will be so many recipes that it might get hard to find. She started writing a grocery column for Fred Meyer when she worked for him in World War II as a 20-year-old advertising copy writer, and has never left off collecting recipes and perfecting them.
