Brandi Koskie has a love for life that extends to living healthy. She enjoys finding new and interesting ways to infuse her cooking and recipes with flavor and nutrition and is always on the prowl for a tasty new treat that is at least somewhat guilt free. Brandi is a proud alum of the University of Oklahoma, from which she earned a bachelors degree in journalism. Her nutrition education comes from the school of hard knocks- in that she's a scavenger for health and wellness information and is always on top of the latest news and trends.
Brandi also believes that good health is influenced through giving. She gives back to her home community in many ways, her favorite is a more than three-year relationship with a young girl she mentors. She calls Wichita, KS home, where she lives with her husband and toddler daughter.

There’s a new D-word, and all of us cringe at its mention. But inevitably, once a day, that question sounds: what’s for dinner? There’s too much pressure on this one single meal that doesn’t even carry the responsibility of being the most important meal of the day. And yet, it’s the one that we focus [...]
Wichita is one of those places you wouldn’t expect to be a foodie town. Tucked in to one of the flattest spots on the prairie in the heart of beef country, with a blue collar populous that’s generally pretty laid back, Wichitans have an appetite for very good food. I know this because I concluded [...]
OK, OK, we’re talking about a Crock Pot, but for Halloween a cauldron just sounds so much cooler! With the hustle and bustle that Halloween night can be, make one thing super easy on yourself — dinner. Load up your cauldron — or slow cooker — in the morning and by evening you’ve got a [...]

Halloween night, especially. Our patio always turns in to the must-be spot for family and friends. Everyone pitches in goodies for the [...]
