About Linda and GGG


Linda Arceo 1a

Linda Arceo is the voice behind Giggles, Gobbles and Gulps™. As a long-time professional writer, Linda finally took a leap into the blogosphere in 2012 to create an outlet for her cooking passion and dedicated interest in the beer, wine and spirits and travel industries. Linda is an untrained, amateur chef and takes great pleasure cooking for her family and friends. As a former college bartender, Linda can also make a mean cocktail and continuously works to improve her mixology skills.

Linda has a BA in Psychology and an MA in Writing.  Her work has appeared in publications such as Philadelphia Family Magazine and South Jersey Mom magazine, and is the dedicated Foodie Traveling Mom on TravelingMom.com. Her food and drink recipes have been featured nationally on outlets such as Today Show Food, Huffington Post Taste, Honest Cooking, QVC’s In the Kitchen with David, Fox Good Day Philadelphia and WMCN’s The Dawn Show – to name a few. In February 2012 Linda won the Woman’s Day Magazine National Chili Cook-Off in the Best Beef Chili category.  By winning the chili contest, Linda received some national and local press and her chili recipe is still pinned dozens of times on Pinterest each day.

Speaking both Spanish and English has enabled Linda to incorporate her ethnicity into many of the recipes featured on GGG, while also tapping into the Latin market and making her relatable to a wider range of audiences. Linda has a natural, engaging presence making her especially comfortable on-air for television and radio appearances, as well as in front of a live television audience. This ease in front of a camera or microphone gives Linda the ability to extend her appeal with brands far beyond the scope of her blog.
