Welcome to Healthfull Ever After!  My name is Amanda Fayne (but almost everyone calls me Mandy).  After litigating over twenty jury trials, I decided to give staying at home with my two children a chance (they act as my jury and sometimes a judge).  Mommyland is quite different compared to a courtroom, but it has been a positive change.  Staying home allows me to explore my true passions- my family, baking, cooking, and writing, and now, starting my own food company, Jolly Oak.

Growing up, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen watching my mom cook and bake. I picked up her traditions and recipes when I went off to college.  During stressful times in my life, I turned to baking as a way to relax.  After losing my father when he was only 58, I became determined to live a healthy life. 

Now raising my own family, their health is my top priority.   Being a parent is a much harder job than I ever imagined.  Just one of the many concerns is taking care of my family’s health.  Between going back to work part-time, driving carpools, and chasing after my children, I don't have a lot of time to spend grocery shopping, preparing, and cooking so I created healthy quick and simple recipes. When I first started inventing healthy meals, I never wrote the recipes down.  As my son would say, "they were a hit."  After numerous recipe requests, I finally started writing the recipes down and compiling them into a cookbook.

I cannot wait to share the easy delicious meals packed with nutrients that I have created for my family to your family!  I truly enjoy having everyone I love in the kitchen!  I created this blog to inspire you and your family into the kitchen too. Get messy!  Have fun!  And eat healthy!
