Welcome, and thank you for being here here!


Hey y’all! My name is Sara Fudge, and I’m the recipe creator behind Cooking With Fudge. I’m so happy you stopped by!

I live in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia with my husband and our four boys who range in ages from 3 years old all the way up to 20. Needless to say, there is never a dull moment around here! Whether I am helping with schoolwork (hello, virtual learning!), shuttling kids around to sports practices or games, or planning a birthday party, we are always on the go. Given our family dynamic, I have had the opportunity to get pretty creative when it comes to preparing relatively easy, healthy, and balanced meals for a family of six while maintaining a reasonable budget.

I love everything there is about cooking and baking. Being in the kitchen is therapeutic for me. As a child, I loved watching cooking shows and helping my mom as she prepared meals in the kitchen. One of my favorite hobbies was “performing” my own cooking show as I made an omelet or baked cookies. I have fond memories of using a gazillion dishes because I wanted to mimic what I saw on television where each ingredient was in its own separate bowl.

I’m passionate about creating lightened up recipes with REAL INGREDIENTS. You won’t find artificial sweeteners around here. I believe that with a few simple tweaks, you can still enjoy the classic comfort foods you grew up on without having to sacrifice any taste.

Here at Cooking With Fudge, I hope you will find it convenient to search for recipes, view the nutritional information (including Weight Watchers® SmartPoints® for all plans!), adjust the serving sizes to suit how many people you are cooking for, and use some of my tips and tricks in your kitchen at home.
