Hello! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Amanda Finks and this is my blog – The Wholesome Dish.
I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist living in a tiny town (4,000 people!) in southern Illinois (surrounded by nothing but corn and cows). I like to cook, eat, travel, and play with my family. My husband and I are foster parents and are hoping to adopt our first child very soon!
My ultimate goal is to have my own cooking show!
I started this website because I LOVE food and want to share that love. Sharing my recipes with the world via this website is a great place to start. 🙂 I’m looking at this blogging experience as cooking show bootcamp. I’ve been learning a ton along the way, and having a blast! Check out my Facebook and Youtube channels to see my recipe videos.
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 in one of these categories:
- Best Recipes – Like this recipe for The Best Classic Meatloaf
- Healthy Recipes – Like this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Zucchini Boats
- Easy Recipes – Like this recipe for Easy Breakfast Casserole
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you love all of my recipes as much as I do.
