Hi, friends! We’re Lauren and Caro, and we’re the authors of Cooking with Copy.
We love food, we love grammar, we want to bridge the 1,409-mile distance that separates us, and we want to widen our cooking and baking repertoires in the process!
Our blog works like this: For every week, we choose a new theme (an ingredient, a flavor, a shape… endless possibilities!), and we each take on one recipe related to it. For example, we might have a macaron-themed week (a sign of things to come…). So Lauren and Caro would each select a macaron (or macaron-related) recipe and tackle it. Not literally, of course.
And then, we blog about it!
In general, Lauren’s posts will go up on Mondays, Caro’s on Wednesdays. That’s the “cooking” (ahem, and baking…) part of our name. The “with copy” part, you ask? Well, on Fridays, we’ll team up to co-write posts on common grammatical/orthographic/stylistic/word-usage/etc. errors that have driven us crazy throughout our careers as copy editors (and totally still do).
In essence, we’re writing this blog to create, educate, and hopefully make you laugh your pants off. Oh, sorry, was that too forward? We’ll let you keep your pants on. Although, if you must know, this picture sums up how we really feel about the garment.
Any questions/comments/concerns/suggestions? Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for being here! We’re glad to have you, and we hope you enjoy Cooking with Copy.
