About Linda and GGG



Linda Arceo 1aHey there!  My name is Linda and I am the brains and heart behind Giggles, Gobbles and Gulps™.

As a long-time writer, I finally decided to take the leap into the blogosphere and share my heart with you. I love many things and wanted an outlet to express my creativity and continue my writing craft.

I have a BA in Psychology and an MA in Writing.  My writing has appeared in publications such as Philadelphia Family Magazine and South Jersey Mom magazine.  I am part of JerseyBites team as regional contributor profiling some of South Jersey’s local food scene.  You can check out my JerseyBites work here. I am also a #Foodiechats Elite Ambassador.

In addition to writing, I love to cook. In February 2012 I won the Woman’s Day Magazine National Chili Cook-Off in the Best Beef Chili category.  By winning the chili contest, I received some national and local press and even got to appear on our local morning show.

I am an untrained, amateur chef and take great pleasure cooking for my family and friends. I am a connoisseur of craft beers (check out my Malt Monday beer reviews) and as a former, college bartender I can make a mean cocktail.  I regularly write about cooking, cocktails, product reviews and events.

I am a Jersey-girl and live right outside Philadelphia.  I am married to a wonderfully supportive husband.  Together, we have two fun boys (2007 & 2009) and two yorkshire terriers.  

We are fortunate to live about an hour from the Jersey Shore where we regularly spend our weekends at the beach.  When not at the beach, my husband enjoys sports, fitness and traveling.  Our boys enjoy Legos, video games, Star Wars, outdoor play and visiting local amusement parks and attractions.  I love to travel, enjoy attending concerts and shows (I am known for knowing the words to way too many songs) and have a major shoe addiction.
