Welcome to a Pinch of Luv

Hi there!  I am a Registered Dietitian by day, and food experimenter in the kitchen by night, and this is my foodie blog. I am all about food and nutrition.  Whether it is practicing my love of nutrition by day educating clients in the clinical setting or by in my leisure time writing new recipes, cooking and baking. On nights and weekends I enjoy focusing on fine tuning healthy recipes and discovering new foods and trends at local markets.

I love to travel, run marathons, and half marathons in different cities. When I travel, I like to take cooking classes to learn the local cuisine and culture.

After I earned my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics degree from Kent State University, I moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for my Dietetic Internship at Adagio Health. Later I obtained my Masters in Business Administration with a focus in Healthcare from Waynesburg University. I have been practicing as a registered dietitian for the last 10 years in a community hosptial setting, and as a Clinical Nurtition Manager for the last 8 years. I am also a Board Member on the Adagio Health Dietetic Internship Advisory Board and serve as a mentor on the board.

Recently,  I fulfilled one of my life goals of relocating to the Eastern North Carolina region in the fall of 2016.

In May 2016, I completed the Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management through the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

I love sharing recipes so much I started A Pinch of Luv Food Blog in 2012. Since 2013,  I have been a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home Magazine. I have had several of my recipes published in Taste of Home Magazine and Simple and Delicious Magazine. Most recently I was published in Taste of Home, 2016 Holiday & Celebrations Cookbook.

I will be posting new recipes weekly so stay tuned.

    Would you share your recipe for baklava. I made some last Christmas and my grandchildren loved the dessert. But I would like to learn of an easier way to make it. I found it time consuming. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for getting back to me. Love the dessert. Will try using a spray bottle to spray the butter, will also try using I Can’t Believe its not Butter. Taste is great for a margarine.

    Got to make 12 Christmas Cakes (loaf size for each) Recipe makes 2 loaves. And also 10 to 12 Christmas Carrot Puddings. So got a lot to do yet. made apple crisp, and two apple pies this morning. We have four boarders living with us who are in their late 50’s or early 60’s, so making meals is busy to say the least. Always planning ahead. Thanks again. Am going to try the baklava that you so generously contributed.

      Hi Betty ! Sure thing! I love sharing recipes!! Wow that is a lot of loaves! I plan on making some bread to go with the apple butter I canned earlier this year to give out as gifts. And of course the baklava :) Wow sounds like you will be busy no doubt. I am sure everyone appreciates all your lovely baked goods. Have a wonderful thanksgiving !!
