Paleo Dessert Fanatic

Hi! I'm Gina the author, photographer and writer behind Running to the Kitchen, a healthy recipe blog that focuses on fresh, seasonal and whole food ingredients. While I don't follow any particular diet, I love experimenting with paleo recipes, especially desserts! When I'm not in the kitchen you can most likely find me outside, running or at CrossFit (yes, I'm a total junkie). I live in the Hudson Valley region of New York with my husband and weimaraner, Ginger.
