I’m a mom of three kids and home cook who loves creating delicious, easy, and healthy meals for my family. And for you! I live with my husband, kids, and Golden Retriever in a suburb of Minneapolis, MN but am a true Iowa girl at heart.

I have been running greens & chocolate for over 10 years, and am passionate about creating recipes that can be made in any kitchen. On greens & chocolate, you’ll find over 1,000 recipes that range from healthy dinners and sides, holiday recipes, irresistible desserts, and a few cocktail recipes. Some of my favorite features are all of my Instant Pot Recipes, my 3-Hour Thanksgiving Series, and my 14 Freezer Meals in 4 Hours Series.

In addition to running my blog, I have written two cookbooks - 30 Minute Cooking for Two, and The Easy 30 Minute Cookbook. I also enjoy running, yoga, cycling, cross country skiing, hiking, and basically anything outside with my family!

If you’d like to learn more about me, I’d suggest giving @greensnchocolate a follow on Instagram, where I love sharing what I’m cooking up, and all of the crazy things my kids do.

If you’re interested in contacting me, find those details here. I love partnering with brands whose product I love, collaborating with other bloggers, & I REALLY love hearing from readers – it seriously makes my day!

More about Taylor and greens & chocolate

How did you come up with the name?

The name greens & chocolate comes from my love of two things - healthy greens and chocolate! I love cooking healthy meals filled with vegetables, but I also enjoy dessert on a daily basis, especially chocolate.

Do you have any vegetarian recipes?

Yes! You can find them in my Recipe Index under Vegetarian.

What is your favorite meal to make for your family?

This is a tough one! My kids love pasta, and my Instant Pot Sausage Rigatoni is ALWAYS a hit.

Do your kids actually eat with you make?

Well, it depends! That answer is really dependent on a lot of things, including what I made, their moods, how many snacks they've had that day, the weather... 😉 But in general, they are served the same meal that we eat and my philosophy is that I get to decide what's on their plate, and they get to decide if they eat it!
