Once a self-described “picky eater,” Allie Hough now operates her own food blog, “The Adventures of a Foodaholic,” where she shares recipes of all types.

“Growing up I was a very picky eater, but once I was living on my own and cooking for myself I realized how much I enjoyed the process. I got more adventurous with ingredients and continued to expand from there. I decided to start a blog because I love to cook and wanted to share my favorite recipes with others. I typically share easy to make meals that don’t require a lot of time or ingredients but are tasty and offer a wide variety of different cuisines.

Hough lives in Hastings with her husband and their one-year-old son, and when she isn’t blogging about her food adventures, she works full-time as an accountant.

She said the sausage, sweet potato and Brussels sprout skillet is “very easy and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients but has a lot of flavor.”
