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.
