About Me

Welcome to Hungry Dane Kitchen! Thank you for visiting my site! My name is Deb, the creator of Hungry Dane Kitchen. On this blog you will find many different tried and true recipes, including vegetarian/plant based variations on different foods I grew up on while living on a dairy farm. A little about me and my family – I am a Registered Nurse with a passion for food and nutrition. My husband and I have been vegetarian for over 10 years now. We tend to lean towards plant-based, however we do like eggs and cheeses now and then, so you will find that not all recipes on this site are vegan. AND my teenage daughter is a die hard carnivore right now so I will often have a meat version and non-meat version when creating different dishes.

We are an active family and enjoy running, hiking, swimming, and various types of cycling including road, gravel, and mountain biking. I have completed various distance triathlons over the years, including 7 half Ironman’s (70.3) and one full Ironman (140.6)! Being meat-free while training, I had to learn to make the most out of our meals to ensure I was getting enough nutrients. Therefore, you’ll find many different combos/creations that our family has enjoyed! I hope you will also!!

And I’m sure you are all wondering why I have the word DANE in my title…….that is because we had two goofy Great Danes, named Zeus and Thor! Now in 2023, we have another beautiful Dane named Magnus. Thus the name Hungry Dane Kitchen! When cooking I often have to muscle my way through our kitchen, as they are always supervising my every move when food is involved!
