I am Keren Brown (note: Keren with 2 E's). I love living in Seattle, I think the weather here is fabulous and spend my days writing, organizing and planning food events. Read about Seattle food events, recipes or just immerse in the food obsession. Check out my other blog in the Seattle PI


  1. My resolution today is to practice voice for a lesson Monday. My music room is next to my kitchen, so if I feel like eating (without being hungry), I will go sing! Maybe as a reward, I’ll try Luc sometime soon. (Been wanting to for a while!)

  2. I want to get more organized in 2012! Not really a resolution but more of a goal. I am always finding I need more time – I figure if I get more organized, I just might find that time I am looking for :-)

  3. Resolution: to learn to manage my time more effectively. :) The restaurant: Corvo Pasta. ooooo….looking through their blog made me sooo hungry! Thanks for the opportunity!
