Nancy Root Miller of River Tree Kitchen interview with Food Blog Radio

Nancy Root Miller, freelance editor, cookbook author, avid home cook and food blogger at River Tree Kitchens. Nancy shares her love of food, cookbook editing, authoring, food blogging and food photography on this episode of Food Blog Radio.

Nancy Root MillerI am Nancy Root Miller, a freelance editor with a specialty in cookbook editing. I’ve written two small cookbooks (50 Best Sundaes and 50 Best Cookies, both for Bristol Press) and am currently finishing a collection of my own recipes from soup (Sweet Potato-Pear) to nuts (Spicy Almonds).
Like many avid home cooks, I have an ever-growing collection of cookbooks, and firmly believe that a great cookbook is just as absorbing to read as a great novel. Despite my immersion in recipes, however, my favorite way to cook is to see what’s in the fridge and wing it.
I used to be an art director, and before that was an art major in college. When I was painting or designing, on the best days I’d lose myself in the moment. Cooking can be like that too, when you’re so lost in the flavors, the chopping and mixing, and above all the creating, that it becomes a form of meditation, exhilarating and relaxing at the same time. That’s the element of cooking I hope to share with you.
I live with my husband, teenage son and dogs in rural Wisconsin. Husband (Tom) and son (Luke) are talented cooks; the dogs (Cleo and Libby) not so much. But they’re young yet.
All the photographs in this blog are my own creations. I’m a neophyte in the world of food photography (as if you couldn’t tell), but I still claim blushing ownership of the pix you see here. If you want to reprint them (I can’t imagine why), please let me know and give credit, if for no other reason than to pass on the blame.
I’m also new to the blogosphere, and would love your feedback. I’ll be tweaking the site as time goes on. Do you want to hear tips about writing a cookbook? More recipes in a certain area? Let me know, and I’ll see what I can do.

If you’re writing a cookbook of your own and you need expert editorial services, I’m available. there’s more information on my editing website:
