Welcome and salutations!
With an updated new design on the blog and a fresh kitchen cleaning, it feels only right to give it a proper introduction. You have happened upon the resting place for BELOVED GREEN, so please kick off your boots, throw on your apron, and stay a while.

A Midwestern girl transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, I prefer the simple things in life like watching football on Sundays and taking a run in the morning to clear my head.  My favorite color is green and I once flash-mobbed the Queen of Denmark.

I am a chronic reader and was constantly scolded as a child to get my head out of a book and come join my family for dinner.  Coincidentally, my mom and dad both despise cooking--which they will both fully admit--so I began gathering recipes as a means of survival and cut down on our take-out meals. 

I enjoy eating healthy, and I enjoy eating good foods. In the immortal words of Virginia Woolf, "One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well."

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you come back real soon.

An interview about me, conducted by me.

Who are you?
I am lovingly referred to as Clarkie by my good friends.  I consider you one of them.  I am a 20-something knocking on 30's door. 

What is this blog about?
Mostly about cooking.  And because my brain is rather spastic, I also blog about whatever is on my mind.  I apologize in advance.

Why call it Beloved Green?
My favorite color is green.   And my given name means Beloved.

Do you need any taste testers?
My mom is my main tester.  She is hard-core and not afraid to speak her mind.  So if it gets her approval, then it is good to go.  My second set of testers are my cats because they are sneaky and can hunt down a spatula with batter before I can even spit out the word, "me-ow".

If I send you an email about a product or service, will you feature it?
Only if I really, really like it.  If I decide not to review it, just figure it is my finicky taste and nothing to do with your product.
