About the Author:

Elaine Callahan is a graphic designer and an artist with a passion for painting food and a quirky sense of humor. She's combined her love of food and art, and mixed in her experience as a graphic designer, to create fun food friends that come alive with personality, as well as recipes that are easy to make and enjoy.She took art lessons as a teen and credits that experience with introducing her to the world of painting. Elaine switched from oils to watercolors when she grew tired of waiting for the oil paint to dry. She is an award-winning artist and a signature member of the Georgia Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, and the Southern Watercolor Society. One of her paintings in the cookbook, America the Fruitiful, was selected as part of the American Watercolor Society's 146th Annual International Exhibition.Being diagnosed with celiac in 2007 and the need to change to a gluten-free diet transformed Elaine and her relationship with food. She discovered a new passion, cooking with fruits and vegetables, which are naturally gluten free. Elaine truly understands the saying “you are what you eat” and appreciates that food is not only beautiful, but that the right food is like a friend that has an amazing power to heal as well as connect us all.It seems like Elaine has always played with her food. Two of her favorite toys growing up were Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. For a college project she created an animated short-film featuring characters made out of food. Today, Elaine is still working on becoming friends with peas.Joyce Kesler loves food and food loves her, which is why she has learned to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into her cooking. Food has been central to her life, and one of her earliest food memories is about eating something she didn't like. A “no thank you helping” always had to be eaten, even if she had to stay at the table after everyone else had left. Joyce could not say, “no.” She had to eat it. In hindsight Joyce has realized that trying all those different foods has led her to some pretty amazing discoveries, food can be friendly and fun.Her childhood memories are filled with family and food. Her father was known for his pancakes. A special lamb shank dinner was “THE meal” when “this is THE one” was formally introduced to the family. Her parents were known for their dinner parties as owners of a fishing lodge in northern Minnesota, sometimes hosting as many as 240 guests.Joyce's career in retailing introduced her to an array of designers, manufactures, and creative personalities that made her career interesting and diverse. When she became a Merchandise Manager for a major retail organization, the Epicure division was one of her areas of responsibility. While there she helped to create markets for several new epicurean vendors that gained nationwide marketability, and her food passion was revitalized.Fortunately Joyce is married to someone equally passionate about food. Her husband has lived and traveled the world, enjoying the new food experiences each place has to offer. At home he likes to recreate the various tastes and dishes he has experienced.When both her parents and three siblings developed type 2 diabetes, she realized that a dietary change was in order. She began experimenting with new recipes and, re-mixing family favorites by incorporating more fruits and vegetables, and reducing fats and sugar. Joyce has learned that she can love food, and it can love her back, in a good way. The exception might be eggplant.
