Love&Grub – About Me


​I started this blog in the beginning of 2014, but never thought it would become such a happy part of my life. I have grown to completely love learning to cook and experiment with new, different flavors and ingredients. I especially love taking comfort foods and finding healthy alternatives that cut the bad and add the good.

In addition to my education and professional experiences, I also believe I have figured out how loving what you eat can quiet all those voices in your head that keep you from eating healthfully and happily.

The idea developed after I posted a few photos on Instagram of various foods that I have prepared…and also one photo of pomegranates in the shape of a Christmas tree. I captioned the photos with “love and…” and followed it with the name of the food.  Why the word love, you ask?


A year or two before I started Love&Grub, I fell back in love with food after years and years of dieting, restricting, self-loathing and having a truly unhealthy relationship with things that taste oh so good.

In addition to my love for food, I was so fortunate to fall in love with my wonderful husband, which gave me a whole new perspective on life and love. So with this love of food and love of love, here I am to give you a new perspective on how important love is when it comes to your mind and body.

Some of the foods I love that you’ll see a lot of:
1. Pasta
2. Cheese
3. Veggies

Some of the foods I don’t love so much that you probably won’t see:
1. Onions

That’s basically it!

I hope you enjoy my recipes, thoughts and rambles as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. Please feel free to leave me any feedback or questions! 

Lots of LOVE,
