Experience

As EatingWell's senior food features editor, Carolyn Malcoun searches for cool farmers, chefs and other food stories to tell. Carolyn has nearly two decades of experience developing recipes and writing and editing feature stories and cookbooks. She started at EatingWell as an intern in the Test Kitchen in 2005 and joined the editorial team soon after. Carolyn has also written for Draft Magazine, Modern Farmer and Cooking Light.

Her culinary interest is rooted in her childhood: baking thousands of Christmas cookies every year with her mom (her favorite: pecan tartlets), picking leaves off bunches of parsley to make tabbouleh with her Lebanese dad, and churning out beef bourguignon and French silk pie at age 10.

Though she's lived in Michigan, Arizona, Texas, Maine, Wisconsin and Minnesota, Carolyn says Vermont felt like home from the moment she arrived there. She has a way-too-big garden and loves exploring the outdoors (be it hiking, ski touring, snowshoeing, biking, camping) with her husband, daughter and two dogs. Carolyn has a deep-seated love for live music, sour beers and Mexican food.

Though a chicken cutlet may be a chicken breast cut in half, this recipe shows how to make chicken cutlets with double the deliciousness. A jar of sun-dried tomatoes does double duty for this healthy dinner idea. The flavorful oil they're packed in is used to sauté the chicken, and the tomatoes go into the cream sauce.

Here's a Shirley Temple for grownups! We found that typical Dirty Shirleys are cloyingly sweet. Our version uses half the amount of grenadine as other versions and a lower-in-sugar ginger beer instead of ginger ale or lemon-lime soda for a refreshing drink.
