Welcome to The Live-In Kitchen! I’m Lindsay, a Wisconsin girl with a love for feel good food. I started The Live-In Kitchen in 2011, and since then it has grown into a resource for approachable, easily customizable recipes so you can enjoy feeding the people you love.
I became a flexible vegetarian in 2012. All new recipes since then are meatless, but several non-vegetarian recipes remain in the archives. While I love sharing healthy recipes, I live by the 80/20 rule, indulging occasionally in my favorite treats and sharing them on the blog.
Blogging gives me the opportunity to be home with my husband and four kids (who we homeschool!), and even though I’m always cooking for my large family, they’re all meat eaters. As a result, you’ll find several vegetarian or vegan meals and desserts designed with a single person in mind. I am aware that many who abstain from meat are doing it alone, so hopefully everyone can find some inspiration here!
I want to share recipes with you that can serve as a base for the people in your life with varying dietary needs. With each recipe I try to give ideas for adapting them to be vegan, gluten-free, or fit whatever ingredients you might have on hand. This way you can have a solid go-to recipe for something like tofu, and make a few adjustments if cooking for someone with different dietary needs.
When I’m not covering something in cheese you can find me cuddling up to my kids, binging through tv shows with my husband, hiking the bluffs around my house, and maybe finding time to read a book again some day.
