Feed Me Dearly


I created “Feed me dearly” as a place to share stories about food, family, and everything in between.

Food is our common thread. It weaves its way into every nook and cranny of our family life. It allows us to nurture, and to be nurtured in return. It unities us in celebration, and shines a light on our challenges: eating a bigger range of healthy foods, creating meals with limited time, navigating the world of food allergies, finding time to just be…together.

And although food plays a starring role in our family, it’s often the stories behind the food that steal the show. Heated nacho discussions, battles with a CSA box, birthday cake disasters, atonement in the form of mac & cheese.

While our kitchen adventures may not always be Pinterest-perfect, they don’t have to be. The most important thing I’ve learned is that food – and life – is about the journey, not the destination.

So whatever you take away from my blog: the recipes, the healthy eating tips & tricks, the stories of love, patience, tolerance, and adventure, it’s my sincerest hope to keep you dearly fed.


My Plant-Based Family


I’m Holly from My Plant-Based Family. My family and I live in sunny Arizona where I blog about whole food, plant-based eating. I help families eat healthy by focusing on real, fresh food. My son has multiple food allergies so my site is also peanut, dairy, and egg free along with being mostly gluten-free.

A plant-based diet doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. We eat beans, whole grains, and lots of fresh fruit and veggies. I show readers how to mix and match basic ingredients to create delicious (and easy) recipes their whole family will love. We are pretty passionate about Mexican food and enjoy it several times a week.

We #getfresh by making fresh salsa using ingredients from our garden when possible. I cook large batches of beans and grains once a week then create multiple meals by adding fresh veggies. A few of our favorites are Mexican Bean and Rice Casserole with Corn, Veggie Burritos, Taco Salad, or Taco Potatoes. We don’t eat Mexican food everyday but it is our favorite.

Our “must have” ingredients include spinach, apples, blueberries, red bell peppers, oats, quinoa, beans, onions, jalapenos, avocados, tomatoes, broccoli along with regular and sweet potatoes.
