My name is Sarah Walker Caron and I am a freelance writer, editor and recipe developer. I also shoot photos for some of my assignments and am active on major social networking sites including Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram.
In the beginning ...
I started my career as a newspaper reporter, first covering the police and weekend beat and later covering courts, cops, local governments and schools. I once argued an FOIA case in Hartford against a school district’s lawyer and won. Through my work at the paper, I developed a tenacity and addiction to deadlines that’s served me well in all my journalistic endeavors.
What I’m up to
These days, I am the senior features editor for the Bangor Daily News in Bangor, Maine. We are a statewide paper, and I oversee our food, culture, arts, outdoors, homesteading, wellness and family coverage. I am also the editor of Bangor Metro Magazine, a monthly glossy covering lifestyle topics in Maine.
I’m the author of five cookbooks, one nonfiction book and a short book on blogging. My latest two are the Frugal Easy Cookbook (due out 7/7/2020) and Classic Diners of Maine (due out 6/22/2020). Both are available where books are sold.
As a writer, I specialize in food, travel and parenting. You can find my recipes on sites like Betty Crocker and Pillsbury. In the past, I also wrote about food for Momtastic, iVillage and Yum for Kids Magazine. I’ve also written for Fine Cooking, Connecticut Magazine and BELLA Magazine.
Be sure to also check out my 15-year-old site Sarah’s Cucina Bella, a food blog about quick and easy home cooking for busy people. I am also the blogger behind The Lunch Box Ladies, a site dedicated to all things packed lunches.
When I am not busy in the kitchen or at the computer, I am a voracious reader, shoe addict and absolute beach lover. I am also mom to two wonderful kids who also love food and the beach (and reading too!).
