Guess who’s got a weekly column in the Daily News Journal?

Helena of Saucy Girls Kitchen
I’m proud to share with you that I/Saucy Girls Kitchen have become a columnist for the Daily News Journal Lifestyles Section. When I first moved to Murfreesboro I wished for this. I’m so happy. My first column is actually running today, Wednesday July 2. You can check it out here.

Plus, last week, The Daily News Journal interviewed my daughter and I about “The Curious Kitchen” – the recreational cooking school that we’re in the process of opening here in Murfreesboro, and also to announce my column.

Please check out The Curious Kitchen. We will have our classes posted on July 10th.  www.TheCuriousKitchen.net
