What’s Cooking America is a family-friendly culinary portal to the web which has an average of 2 million+ users each month.  In 2015, over 26 million users visited What’s Cooking America for recipes, culinary articles, and cooking information and tips.  Our articles and cooking history information have appeared in newspapers, magazines, television, and on web sites worldwide.

Our website is not about American food, necessarily, but rather what we as Americans are cooking and eating.

Linda says, “I have always had a fascination with history.  When you put this together with a love of good food, you have a culinary historian.  The research of the origins of foods of America and beyond have become an obsession that I enjoy sharing with my readers.  This culinary history is what sets What’s Cooking America apart from other recipe web sites.  We give you the culinary history so you know more about the food you love to eat.”

 

Team Whats Cooking America

My two very creative and computer-wise daughters, Nancy Hartman and Brenda Weller (who also live in Oregon), have recently joined What’s Cooking America to help design the future of What’s Cooking America.  Together we cook, create, and test recipes, plus write and explore new cooking adventures.

About Linda Stradley:  Linda and her husband live in Oregon and is the mother of three grown children and the grandmother of seven.  Linda says, “I have always had a fascination with history.  When you put this together with a love of good food, you have a culinary historian.  The research of the origins of foods of America and beyond have become an obsession that I enjoy sharing with my readers.  This culinary history is what sets What’s Cooking America apart from other recipe web sites.  We give you the culinary history so you know more about the food you love to eat.”

About Nancy Hartman:  Nancy lives in Oregon with her family and works for a local non-profit specializing in database management and professional research.  In 2013, Nancy has picked up marketing research, video production, and recipe writing.  She has also been leading the platform transition coordination as What’s Cooking America begins its quiet behind the scenes make-over.

About Brenda Weller:  Brenda also lives in Oregon with her family.  She is a busy mother of two young children and works for a global software security company.  Brenda shares a passion for cooking with her Mom, Linda, and has contributed several of her favorite recipes to the What’s Cooking America website through the years.  Since 2013, Brenda has managed the social marketing for What’s Cooking America, and contributed several new recipes, food history research and food photography.
