Hey there! I’m Sharon, creator, writer, and photographer of all the content you’ll find here on Heart and Stove. I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, current student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and, most importantly, a self-taught home cook.
While I’ll always enjoy learning about nutrition and keeping up on the ever-changing world of health and wellness trends, it turns out I’m happiest when I’m creating, especially in the kitchen!
In true Libra fashion, my world revolves around balance. I feel best when I eat mostly real, unprocessed foods. That being said, there’s always room to enjoy some of my favorite treats, like pizza, tacos, and cookies. Seriously never met a cookie I didn’t like!
It really IS all about finding the right balance – and a balanced recipe collection is what you’ll find here. My recipes don’t fit any specific nutrition approach because I don’t strictly follow any one way of eating. Sometimes I play with gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian/vegan recipes and sometimes I’m baking the old-fashioned way with flour, sugar, and butter.
I hope my recipes inspire you to get in the kitchen, get cooking, and find your own healthy balance!
When I’m not in the kitchen, you can find me with my nose in a book, jamming to Hanson (mmmbop, y’all), working out (21 day fix-er + yoga + barre + zumba), and hanging with this cute guy:
Meet Max, my Goldendoodle! I like to think of him as the real-life version of Clifford the Big Red Dog. He’s the official sous chef, crumb catcher, and behind-the-scenes photography assistant around here. Oh, and he inspired a whole line of dog collars! If you’re a crazy dog person like me, you can check out my handmade collection here.
I love photography and travel, eat peanut butter by the spoonful, live for summer, and spend 90% of my time in workout gear because nothing beats stretchy pants. I currently live near Philadelphia with the aforementioned doodle.
