I am the only professional home economist in the world who is also an alumnus of the Second City Comedy Troupe, not only do I bring knowledge about foods and nutrition to the table, but I do it with a smile and a giggle.

I’m happy to share recipes.  For permission to use any of my recipes for publication or in your blog or website please shoot me an email mairlyn@mairlynsmith.com.

Wishing you,
Peace, love and fibre
