FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the top questions I get asked about the site:

What is Cooking Made Healthy?

Cooking made Healthy is the lighter side of life from Dinner, then Dessert. On the main blog we cook with full fat ingredients, copious amounts of cheese and bacon and little thought to the point values of items. In reality we try to live by an 80/20 rule where we mostly eat cautiously and save the less healthy dishes for special occasions. That isn’t to say there aren’t healthy options on Dinner, then Dessert, it is just to say you’ll find only healthier options here.

Why not combine the recipes on one site?

This is the question I am asked the most. Literally every single person who knows about Cooking made Healthy asks. There are really two main reasons.

  1. When I’ve been eating healthy I like to live in a bubble where I get to choose from a list of delicious on plan recipes. I feel like as a reader if I was searching Dinner, then Dessert for a Kale Salad for example, I may come across a Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders recipe. While I’m an adult, and I should know better, now I would just want nothing but bacon wrapped chicken. It didn’t seem fair to readers to make them sort through mixed recipes.
  2. User Experience: Searching through points values, categories and menu structures would be a giant mess if I introduced points to recipes. Everything on Cooking with Points is designed to help you find on plan meals and snacks in the easiest possible way.

Can I send in recipe suggestions?

Yes, absolutely! Send them my way! contact @ cookingmadehealthy.com

What kind of exercise do you like?

My husband and I are both big fans of our Peloton bike. Sorry Shannon Beador, our bike lets go when the ride is over! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, do you sleep?

Also nope. I work some pretty long hours, but in as non-cheesy a way as I can get this point across, I LOVE sharing these recipes so the hours don’t bother me too much! Plus the constant stream of food keeps all the family and friends in my life pretty darn happy.

Can we work together and do some recipe development on a brand level?

Sure, let’s discuss and see if it is a good fit. Email me at contact @ cookingmadehealthy.com
