Every Sunday, we run a 7-Day Menu Planner on the back of the Extra section to help readers plan their meals for the week ahead. This feature is written by a lovely lady named Susan Nicholson who lives in Atlanta with her husband, Nick (a.k.a. “Cupcake”). It is read by some 6 million people every week.
But Susan is originally from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and she and Nick have traveled through the area and stopped to say hello to us at The Roanoke Times on a couple of occasions. She has a great sense of humor and an interesting past — Susan once owned and operated a microwave specialty store and cooking school. She attended the La Varenne cooking school in Paris and is a registered, licensed dietitian.
Now, Susan has a new blog where you can keep tabs on her as she tests recipes for the 7-Day Menu Planner or dines out with friends and family. Occasionally, she’ll even throw in some personal entries about her sweet new kitties, Smoke and Flash.
Find Susan’s blog, “Making the Menu,” here. Follow her Twitter account under “7DayMenu” here or friend her on Facebook here. And if you are ever looking for past recipes from the 7-Day Menu Planner, they are archived here. A link to that archive can also be found on the main page of PlateUp.
