Welcome, Folks!

Hi! I’m Jacqueline!

I write about interesting humans, I produce podcasts, and I have a history of baking delicious things. 

Since the age of 12, I’ve lived with varying long-term effects of Lyme disease. This shaped how I eat from the moment my body learned to heal itself through food and vitamin supplementation (drugs, too). I’ve been off gluten for decades ( I have Celiac now, too, evidently). But I’m the last to preach about the health or harm of a food for any other human being. I have fluctuating relationships with sugar, dairy, nightshades, and other indigestibles. I am aware of what I eat but do not “diet”, as I still consider food my friend. 

Life’s all about the balance, folks.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

A few years after starting this blog back in 2010, two things happened: I transitioned my career from one form of writing into food journalism, and because of worsening health conditions I’m no longer able to regularly eat the sweet treats I so adore. So I rarely post on this site anymore. But there are hundreds of recipes here: family favorites I’ve adapted, the bulk of Christina Tosi’s Milk Bar cookbook I baked my way through with an amazing group of bloggers, “Pro Pastry” sweet and savory recipes adjusted from badass chef friends and clients, and the holiday sweets that brought me joy made safe for my body. Feel free to scroll through categories (on the right), or try your luck with that handy search bar.

Please keep in mind that the personal stories here are outdated. Connect with me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter if you’re curious about my current goings on. For more about my work in writing and radio, find me at wordsfoodart.com. And for news about my first book! – a memoir and cast study about habit called The Me, Without: A Year Exploring Habit, Healing, and Happiness out with Ixia Press in January of 2019 – head to JacquelineRaposo.com.


 Thank you for visiting.

    Wishing you peace, love, and health,
