Maggie Green lives in the suburbs of a large river city with her husband (the best male cook she knows), their 3 growing children, a cat who sleeps by day, and a devoted, shelter-adopted doggie also named Maggie. Maggie, the person, trades her time for money as a freelance cookbook editor, recipe tester and developer, food and nutrition writer, industry consultant, and author of a soon-to-be-published cookbook One Year in My Kentucky Kitchen (University Press of Kentucky).
Maggie’s life in her kitchen focuses on cooking whole real ingredients with occasional Cheez-Its and store-bought cookies thrown in for good measure. Maggie values family, good health, and fuels her passion everyday with the marriage of nutrition and cooking. Maggie believes optimal health is tied first and foremost to how we feed our bodies.
Maggie worked diligently as a lead editor for the 75th anniversary edition of Joy of Cooking, and works to promote the true joy of cooking through the Joy Kitchen website. Maggie also edited The Ultrametabolism Cookbook, and the 2009 James Beard award-winning book, BakeWise, by Shirley Corriher.
