Welcome to Cooking with Virginia!

Need inspo for healthy recipes? Cooking with Virginia is packed with real-life tips, cooking techniques, and good and good-for-you recipes.

Who wants sad food? No one. Recipes have to taste good! 

Here you’ll find a mix of indulgent and healthy recipes — food that I eat and make in my own kitchen (and sometimes on TV.)

As a result of my own wellness journey, I am an enthusiastic cheerleader for others seeking to make lifestyle changes in the interest of feeling healthier and happier, too. 

Bon Appétit, Y’all!
