About Girl Heart Food
Girl Heart Food is a food blog with hundreds of easy comfort food recipes. Some of the recipes you’ll find on Girl Heart Food are on the healthier side of things, while others are indulgent (so many cheesy recipes!).
The main thing is that the recipes are easy, delicious and use simple ingredients, sure to satisfy your taste buds and make your belly happy. And who doesn’t love that?
While some recipes are a little more time consuming and a labour of love, like homemade lasagna (great for Sunday supper, by the way), most recipes are simple, satisfying and quick to prepare, like cheesy ground beef quesadillas.
Cooking should be fun! Just enjoy yourself! Remember, everything doesn’t have to be perfect and that’s perfectly okay. If you make lumpy gravy, grab your immersion blender and blitz that baby out!

My name is Dawn, and I’m the author, recipe developer and photographer of Girl Heart Food.
I live in Newfoundland and Labrador with my best friend (who happens to be my hubby) and our furry child, Riley, who keeps us on our toes.
There’s always something delicious cooking in our home ’cause we love to cook and eat. I’m seriously starting to think the reason I work out is so I can eat so much. Good trade off, though, don’t ya think?
From one meal to the next, I’m always thinking about what the next meal will be. I didn’t always cook as much as I do now, but I’ve always enjoyed eating! Who doesn’t, especially when it’s good, simple food made from scratch.
My love of cooking has grown so much over the years. It started out from watching a lot of The Food Network and reruns of Julia Child’s shows on PBS.
One of my favourite quotes by Julia Child is “If you’re afraid of butter, use cream.” That one always puts a smile on my face!
I’m always dreaming up new recipes to test out and try, and I also love to get inspiration from my family. A particularly sentimental recipe for me is this chef’s salad recipe.
Food can be so much more than food, ya know? Of course, it can satisfy your hunger, but it can also remind you of fond memories of loved ones and occasions shared.
For me, there’s nothing more rewarding than making a dish from the heart and serving it to family and friends.
When I’m not cooking up a storm, I love to read books (especially mystery and Fantasy genres), put together jigsaw puzzles, work out and watch my favourite television shows and movies (I particularly enjoy Star Wars and Star Trek, as well as action/adventure and thriller genres).
