CoffeeWithCarolineI am a 
freelance content developer / copywriter, editor and marketing strategist and supplement my income with a part-time gig in communications for a Chicago-area research university. I also dabble in graphic design. Since the pandemic, I have returned to remote work, which I enjoy much more than I remember. Perhaps that is because my spouse is now remote with me in our near-north suburban home. We are modern empty nesters, with two adult children on their own and one adult child who bounces in and out by the day or week. My mother also lands in our nest every other month, as she splits her time between my brother and me. With two Old English Sheepdogs and a very vocal cat, ours can be a loud and sometimes crowded house but is always a lively and loving, home.

Coffee with Caroline is my attempt to actively write about that which I am most passionate:

  • Food & Cooking, including local, humanely raised, and organic food sourcing
  • Contemporary Recipes & Historical Receipts
  • Books, Authors & Reading
  • History & Genealogy
  • Urban Home & Garden
  • Social Justice

Some of my writing also appears on: www.hubpages.com/@carolinechicago. Articles on this site include:

I am also working on two different non-fiction book ideas. One blends my love of history and cooking. The other is a series of short books biographies for girls in grades 4 through 6 on strong, interesting, but lesser known women in history (no princesses).

I know that millions of cooking, history, and book-related blogs and websites exist, and I want to thank you for stopping by my tiny little corner!
