About Dizzy Busy and Hungry
Hello and welcome!
Thanks for stopping by DBH, where I share recipes for real life! I am so glad to have you visit. While you are here, make sure you check out my hundreds of tried-and-true recipes that I have served to my family, friends, and party guests. They are all easy to prepare, with minimal ingredients but tons of flavor. My goal is to provide recipes that are realistic in terms of budget and prep for the modern day active lifestyle.
Why 'Dizzy Busy and Hungry'? Well, I am a really busy working wife and mom of two teenage boys. My life feels like a whirlwind sometimes, and I am not just busy, but I am 'dizzy busy'! So the name just flowed from there, and you will often see it referred to as DBH for short.
Originally, I started recording my recipes here on DBH as an easy way to share them with the other moms at my corporate job. As time has gone on, and my library of recipes continues to grow, more and more readers stop by to find recipes they can prepare with just a few ingredients and a little prep.
FAQs About Kristin King and DBH
No, but as a 'dizzy busy' wife and mom, I have had to come up with creative ways to serve my family healthy, delicious food. As you can imagine, this can be a challenge when life seems to be moving at a mile a minute!
While I may not be a culinary professional, I have been cooking for my family for 20+ years and have developed recipes that work really well for folks like me who don't have a lot of time or energy for cooking, but still like to eat good food prepared at home!
I am not a kitchen whiz and I don't have a lot of time and energy for planning, shopping, and preparing, so I am always developing tricks and shortcuts for my recipes to make them quick and easy and nutritious!
Over time, I have researched and practiced and adapted my methods to fit with my lifestyle, and I would love to pass on some of the knowledge I have acquired to anyone who might benefit from it!
I do most of it myself! The exceptions are the recipes that are posted by my contributors, Tonje and Carmy, and some photos that I purchase from other food photographers so that I can continue to bring you new recipes even when I don't have time to photograph them myself.
All the photos that I shot have a Dizzy Busy and Hungry watermark on them, so just look for that in order to determine if the photo was taken by me or not!
I rely on many shortcuts, such as buying some prepared ingredients to save time (minced garlic is one of my favorites), using frozen vegetables where I can instead of fresh (allows for the most flexibility with a changing schedule since they don't spoil as quickly), and employing strategies to minimize cleanup (like using parchment paper on baking sheets or adapting recipes to use only one pan). These tips are included in all my recipes to help you apply those shortcuts as well!
My Creamy Coconut Chicken Curry is a family favorite, and is a complete meal all in one dish. It requires only 5 ingredients and can be on the table in 15-20 minutes. I also include some tips in the notes to make the prep even easier, so check it out.
My Grilled Avocado Sauerkraut Sandwich is another favorite, and it's so easy! It might sound like a strange flavor combination, but it really works and we love it. It's healthy and delicious and hot and crispy, so give it a try!

I look forward to hearing from you! 🙂
