Hey there, I'm Kelsey! Registered dietitian, dog mom.. now human mom, and grocery shopping enthusiast on a mission to make food fun, affordable, and freaking delicious. I share my passion for nutrition with quick and easy recipes, grocery tips and time-saving kitchen hacks.
We’ll also discuss my dislike of cheese and cook with my dog, Cooper, from time to time. Thanks for stopping by!
About the blog
It's not that I can't appreciate a slow, elaborately involved meal, it's just that… I’m a mom with a life, who has other places to be besides the kitchen, you know? And no one really has time, but there are hangry mouths to feed and you need to make something delicious, stat.
As the smart, frugal, low-maintenance “chef” that I am, I dedicated this blog to simple recipes made for actual, everyday life. Because let’s face it, adulting is hard and eating well shouldn’t have to be.
I’m here to show you that cooking healthy, delicious meals can be fun, affordable and doable for everyone.
I was never an adventurous eater. Some might describe me as picky (says the girl with a food blog), but growing up we rotated between the same five meals.
- Pasta, meatballs and broccoli
- Chicken cutlets, egg noodles and broccoli
- "Green Pasta" aka Chicken and pasta with pesto
- Velveeta Mac n' cheese (Kraft lovers are still welcome here)
- Rice a Roni
And if I had to feed myself, you'd find me devouring pizza and Mountain Dew or an entire carton of goldfish. If you're thinking, "how in the world did you become a dietitian and why did you start a food blog?" Same.
Truth is, my passion for food didn't start until college. No parents meant no rules and I was free to eat whatever vegetables my heart desired. I discovered a lot of new foods, started cooking - burned A LOT of things in the process, and mastered the art of lazy meals that were big on flavor and light on the budget.
I quickly realized “picky” eating can be something positive that helps you transform your way to a healthier, happier life. It became a way to share my experience and help others experiment with recipes, experience new flavors, and truly enjoy food.
My goal is to simplify your life and bring joy back to your kitchen. So let's get you cooking, stat!
