Hello there! My name is Erin. Perhaps you know me from my other blog, Texanerin Baking? Baking is on my mind – all the time. So I bake a lot. I used to bake oodles of really unhealthy goodies but then I realized that I couldn’t continue baking once or twice a week and remain healthy at the same time.

You know how a lot of healthy recipes taste obviously healthy? Just kind of… bla? I don’t like that. At all! My aim is to create simple, healthier recipes that – most importantly – taste just as yummy as the original not-so-healthy versions! No cardboard-y or grain-y taste here.

Wondering what happened to Heidi? Read the beginning of this Healthy Chocolate Cake post!

I love your intro. We share the exact same way of approaching food and cooking. So happy to have found your blog:)

Just stumbled along and found your blog. I love your food philosophy, and completely agree! Thanks for the wonderful recipes. I look forward to following along.

Hey Heidi,

My friend Hannah and I just came across your site this weekend, and your recipes and outlook are totally our vibe! Great job, and keep ’em coming!


Raizel and Hannah, your new readers in Tel Aviv

8 Brett January 2, 2013 at 23:52

This is a great blog! You are an inspiration. I can’t believe you have me wanting to cook!

9 Catherine November 8, 2012 at 11:50

You’re great! Your recipes and overall outlook on food/health are really inspiring. Vegetarian for 3 years from 13 to 16, vegan for 6 months and, now 23, I just recently fell out of eating so healthy with my boyfriend and I moving into our new house (lots of junk and convenience food 🙁 ). So THANK YOU and kudos to you- knowing you have three kids and a husband to take care of certainly puts my habits in perspective!!

10 kristin November 7, 2012 at 23:22

Just stumbled upon your blog and already I have book marked so many delicious things to make and eat! Awesome! Nice to meet you!
~kristin – also in BC!

Fraser Valley- Thanks for all your hard work on this site 🙂

Thanks for sharing and putting so much work into this for everyone to enjoy. We are in BC too- whereabouts are you?

13 Heidi @ Food Doodles September 8, 2012 at 15:02

Thank you so much Meagan! We’re from the Kootenays, how about you?

14 Michaela July 28, 2012 at 12:34

you looks soooo lovely in that picture! also your baby is absolutely adorable!
great shot 🙂 you look so happy.

15 Nanci May 28, 2012 at 10:46

I love your recipes, and more so the fact that so many of your recipes are animal-friendly since modern farming is so unkind.

16 Kim Bush April 1, 2012 at 07:43

I am vegan but have found recipes I can use on your blog. Wonderful!

17 Jen February 24, 2012 at 13:26

wow…love your “about” and your food philosophy (to steal the term from a previous commenter). I’ll be back!

18 Michele Garcia February 1, 2012 at 22:18

Hi Heidi,

I’m totally on board with your food philosophy-you can’t go wrong with lots of vegetables in your diet. Great variety of recipes on your blog. Congratulations on your third addition to the family!

19 Cara January 16, 2012 at 07:29

Just came across your blog for the first time, and it sounds like we have a lot in common in terms of our food philosophy. I look forward to following!

20 Eat good 4 life January 14, 2012 at 17:20

Awesome….I just got done making my energy bars which are very similar to this and I always have to double the recipe 🙂 a super power food!!

21 Chris December 23, 2011 at 23:06

Hi Heidi, I was looking for shortbread using wholewheat flour, as I just ran out of regular….and your blog came up on my search. I will be making those cookies as a little addition to the Christmas treats…thank you! I am from BC , too, what a nice surprise your blog is! Your photography is stunning and the recipes and write-ups are quite professional…..cookbook quality. Great job! I look forward to seeing more 😉 Merry Christmas!

22 Gerry @Foodness Gracious December 6, 2011 at 21:40

Thanks for the reply Heidi regarding the Tasteologie badge, do you have the HTML code for sharing?

23 Heidi @ Food Doodles December 7, 2011 at 11:31

No, sorry. If you want to use the badge on your site, you’ll need to right click the image and save it and then upload it on your site to use.

24 Sylvia@peaches and donuts January 17, 2012 at 14:38

Hi Heidi,
I was looking for a tasteologie badge and came across your blog. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

25 Gerry @Foodness Gracious December 5, 2011 at 00:02

Hey Heidi, Glad I found your blog. I was searching for a Tasteologie badge and ended up here, can I ask how you got it? If you made it do you mind sharing with full credit and link back to you of course!
Take care…

26 Heidi @ Food Doodles December 5, 2011 at 16:18

Welcome 😀 I did make the tasteologie and tastespotting badges myself and I don’t mind sharing! Thank you so much for offering to link back to me, if you can fit a small link in I would love it 😀 Thanks so much for leaving me a message!

27 Katie V November 7, 2011 at 18:21

Hi Heidi,
I know all the previous comments have said it, but I just wanted to repeat that the blog is great! I have JUST discovered it, and bookmarked it!

I recently read a book called Eating Animals, by Jonathan Safran Foer, and I think it would be of interest to you. It is a very informative book about what the animals that we consider “food” in our country, and he is an excellent writer. It can be a bit harsh and graphic at times, but I think it is a book we should all read and understand as we make our food choices. I hope you get a chance to read it. It sounds like you’re already ahead of the game, but nevertheless it is an eye-opening book. I consider myself pretty informed, and it definitely completely shifted my view of, well, eating animals.

Thank you for your contribution to the world! All the best to you and to your sweet fam!

28 chopinandmysaucepan August 12, 2011 at 16:34

Hi Heidi,

Just wanted to tell you that you have a beautiful blog. I stumbled across your blog after Nami from Justonecookbook.com passed the baton to me for the 7 links challenge 🙁 🙁

I’m not sure if I’m going to do it though coz there are so many great blogs around and my blog is only 4 months old. Hope to read more of you.

Keep up the great stuff and happy blogging! 🙂 🙂

29 Heidi @ Food Doodles August 16, 2011 at 14:44

Aw, thank you so much! I think you should do the 7 links challenge anyways! I’ve only had my blog a couple more months than you. It was hard to pick links, but it was fun 🙂

Happy blogging to you too!

30 Amy-Nutrition by Nature August 2, 2011 at 18:54

Hi Heidi,
Your blog is very nice, I am looking forward reading more of it! 🙂

31 Katrena July 28, 2011 at 09:05

Your blog has so many good recipes, I can’t wait to try some of them. Do you grow most of your vegetables? Or do you buy them from the grocery/farmers market?

32 Heidi @ Food Doodles July 28, 2011 at 10:57

Aw thank you! I do have a large garden but a lot of my fruits and veggies still come from the grocery store and the farmers market, although I always prefer the market.

33 Sarah B. @ Lemon Fire Brigade July 26, 2011 at 13:05

Hi Heidi! Thank you for your kind words over at my site. You are so very sweet! I was just looking at some of your posts. Awesome stuff, I love the polenta lasagna!! Amazing! I might have to make that recipe for my fiance. Anyways, just wanted to say hi and mention something we have in common I’m 23 too. Youngins’ here 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful summer Heidi! xx. Sarah B.

34 Aggie July 21, 2011 at 19:13

Hi there! I have seen 2 comments on other blogs from you today and decided to come over (from Alkaline Sisters!)

Your way of eating is very similar to mine…mostly plant based but I don’t call myself a vegetarian b/c I eat fish. I don’t want to even call myself a pescatarian b/c I reserve the right to take a bite of my hubby’s burger or my grandpa’s meatballs!

Looking forward to checking out your blog and being inspired! :0)

35 Heidi @ Food Doodles July 22, 2011 at 13:40

I’m so glad you stopped in!
I don’t like to label how I eat either because, for me at least, there are always exceptions. I could say a lot of things about how I eat, but I’m much rather just show it 🙂
Thank you for visiting me. I’m enjoying looking through your blog too and I’m excited to see more!

36 Tanvi@SinfullySpicy July 9, 2011 at 19:24

Hello Heidi,
I m so glad that you dropped by on my blog so that I can find yours..So So beautiful..you are very talented baker & photographer- I m enjoying your space so much.Will be back again & again! Take care and keep the goodies coming 🙂

37 Heidi @ Food Doodles July 22, 2011 at 13:35

Thank you! I’m so glad you dropped by 😀

38 Meredith April 27, 2011 at 18:00

cool blog. At your age I was still eating college fair and adding a senior 15 to my previous freshman 15. I finally got it together, however. It’s nice to see young people already aware of what good food is. keep it up.

39 Heidi @ Food Doodles April 28, 2011 at 11:46

It’s definitely something I learned the hard way too, and it’s a constant process. You can never stop learning 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!

40 Anna Cervantez April 26, 2011 at 21:25

I cant remember how I found this site, but I love it. I love your pictures, recipes & insights on food. I will be making some of your recipes soon and share with my family. I know they will love it too.

41 Heidi @ Food Doodles April 27, 2011 at 10:57

I’m so glad you like everything! And I’m so glad you found me 😀

42 a taste of health with balance April 19, 2011 at 18:14

Heidi- your blog is beautiful, and I love beautiful photography! Very inspiring that you are able to cook healthy meals while raising a family. Looking forward to reading and searching through your recipes, already have my eye on quite a few!

43 Heidi @ Food Doodles April 20, 2011 at 09:13

Thank you so much! I’m so glad! I hope you find some recipes you really enjoy 😀

44 bakebooks April 11, 2011 at 17:42

Just found your blog through a comment on HTP. I seen you say your from Canada?!

So young to have 2 young boys! I imagine they keep you busy 🙂

And bread? YES please!

45 Heidi @ Food Doodles April 11, 2011 at 18:37

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I am from Canada. BC actually 😀

I actually have a boy and a girl. They keep me busy enough, I can only imagine 2 boys would be even crazier! My husband and I are pretty young but we love it 😀

46 The Teenage Taste April 5, 2011 at 13:07

I just found your blog today and it sounds lovely! I love your food philosophy and love making foods from scratch. I’m looking forward to reading more! 😀

47 Heidi @ Food Doodles April 5, 2011 at 13:32

Awesome! Welcome 😀

48 Monica March 30, 2011 at 09:21

How have I never visited your blog before? Your photography is simply stunning. I love your philosophy (and your taco seasoning). We have similar tastes in books, too. Have you read Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver? It’s a must read. Not your usual polemic. Just inspiring words about food and sustainability.

49 Heidi @ Food Doodles March 30, 2011 at 09:54

I’m still just a baby in the blog world 😀 Thank you so much for the compliments!
No I haven’t read that book, but I’ve heard good things about it. I’ve been looking for it at my local library. They have it but it’s always out when I go. I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
Thank you for stopping by!

50 chocorrol March 23, 2011 at 13:43

Beautiful blog and wonderful pictures 🙂 I will make sure to visit you again 🙂

51 Heidi @ Food Doodles March 23, 2011 at 14:13

Thank you!

52 Daphne DeLaurier March 10, 2011 at 05:25

Hello, Heidi! What an incredibly beautiful blog. I’ve recommended it to my friends on twitter.

Best wishes,

53 Heidi @ Food Doodles March 10, 2011 at 08:46
