Dorothy Reinhold, 56 and from Malibu California, may shop the farmers' markets with the stars, but her cooking is very down-to-Earth. Reinhold stresses seasonal fruits and vegetables in her recipes. She's even been known to check what's on sale at the local markets and come up with a timely recipe for it. She writes at <a href="http://www.shockinglydelicious.com/">Shockingly Delicious</a> which in foodspeak means "scary good," she said. Reinhold comes from a newspaper editor/PTA president/financial-planner-so-let's-keep-it-frugal background.

Men Who Like To Cook
While we're talking Hollywood, you can't overlook the musings or makings of David Latt -- an Emmy award-winning ("Hill Street Blues") TV producer for 25 years. He got through the long hours and stress of dealing with production craziness by cooking. "Sometimes after a really difficult week, I’d cook all weekend. Eight, 10 hours each day, I’d stand over the cutting board and stove, cooking. Cutting carrots calmed me down and gave me hope again. Other people in my profession took up gambling or drank or went crazy chasing women. Not me. I went home and cooked," he says on his blog <a href="http://guyswholiketocook.blogspot.com/" target="_hplink">Guys Who Like To Cook</a>. His first eCookbook, "10 Delicious Holiday Recipes," is available on Amazon, and in his spare time, he updates his second food blog, <a href="http://menwholiketocook.blogspot.com" target="_hplink">Men Who Like To Cook</a>.

After losing more than 40 pounds on the South Beach Diet, blogger Kalyn Denny of Salt Lake City, Utah became convinced that lower-glycemic cooking was the way to stay healthy. Her blog, <a href="http://www.kalynskitchen.com/">Kalyn's Kitchen</a> features recipes that she's created or adapted to use low-glycemic foods. The glycemic index is a measure of how quickly foods turn to sugar in the bloodstream, so this type of cooking is good for people with diabetes, pre-diabetes or anyone who's trying to lose weight on a lower-carb eating plan. Many of her recipes are also gluten-free since she focuses on not using flour.
