i’m debbie matthews. i live in Durham, NC, and write food columns for both The Henderson Daily Dispatch, in Henderson NC, and The Sanford Herald.
Every Saturday The Daily Dispatch also runs another column of mine. This piece appears on the front page and is an essay, hopefully humorous, with no set topic. The Sanford paper runs it as well, but on Sunday.
Lately, i’ve also begun writing for IndyWeek, an independent newspaper in the triangle. They’ll appear every now & then on no set schedule, so head over to the Indy, and check the food section.
i’ve been married to Petey since the invention of movable type. We have one child, The Kid, a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, and my kitchen co-conspirator.
Like the name of this blog, my posts are pretty much anything shiny that pops into my head.
i usually add the new columns on Tuesdays.
Thanks for your time.
