About Me

Hello!  I’m so glad you’re here.  I’m Amanda Finks and this is my blog – The Wholesome Dish.

I’m a true food lover.  Midwestern comfort food is my favorite.   I’m from Southern Illinois and currently living in Zionsville, IN with my husband Jason, 5-year old daughter Camille, and a Chihuahua named Biscuit.

We are a traveling family.  We spent 1 ½ years traveling across the country, living full-time in an RV.  During that time, we were lucky enough to taste so many different types of amazing food from all across the US.

The Wholesome Dish is one of the most trusted recipe websites.

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I’ve been trained in food science and recipe development.  I personally test all of the recipes on this site.  My family members are my taste testers.  I don’t put anything on this site that my family doesn’t love.  I have over 8 years of experience creating recipes.  It’s what I love doing!  People keep coming back to the same recipes over and over again because their families love the food.  Check out all the amazing reviews on the recipes on this site.

Types Of Recipes On This Site

While I am proud to be a dietitian, I do NOT only eat health food.  So, that’s not what this site is about.  I strive to make the BEST recipes, the recipes you keep coming back to over and over because your whole family loves them.  If I can convince one family to cook one of my easy recipes at home instead of going through the fast-food drive through, then I consider that a win!

The recipes on this site tend to fall into one of two categories:

The best classic recipes

I love traditional classic recipes like Meatloaf, ChiliChicken Pot Pie, and many more.  It is my mission to make the absolute best version of these classics.

Easy recipes

I’m a busy mom and like so many other people, I don’t always have a lot of time to devote to getting a meal on the table.  I love creating recipes that have a few common ingredients and can be made quickly, like my Homemade Tacos,  Teriyaki Chicken Thighs, Sloppy Joes, and Easy Breakfast Casserole.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you love all of my recipes as much as I do.
