Sarah Dale (Sarah)

About

My name is Sarah and I am a mama of two, wife, and registered dietitian. We are a busy military family and the crock pot (or all three of them if I'm being honest :)) is a life-saver for us. I love to cook and love finding great recipes that I can share with my clients and patients that help make homecooked meals more doable. As an RD I like to try to trim fat and sodium where I can, but always try recipes as-written the first time. I look forward to learning a lot from all the other crockin' girls and to lots of yummy meals along the way!

Hobbies

spending time with the fam, cooking, gardening, exercising

Family

hubby, daughter Hannah (3), son Ryan (2) and #3 on the way!
