about dolly and oatmeal


hello, welcome to dolly and oatmeal!  my name is lindsey s. love, i'm married to a wonderful guy named frank, and together we have our little boy, amesy, and our pup, qunit.  we recently made a move to the opposite coast and are currently living in los angeles.  

as you might know, my lifelong relationship with food hasn't always been the most harmonious. i grew up with some food sensitivities but never really paid much attention to them. as i got older, however, and my sensitivities became more pronounced, i sought the help of a life coach/nutritionist.  from those meetings i grew increasingly aware of the relationship between my body and what i was putting into it. as a result, i cut gluten and dairy out of my diet, and while i'm not a vegan, i do consume a largely plant-based diet. since making fresh produce the focal point of my diet, i've come to savor it in its most natural way, and finding that eating and cooking seasonally keeps me in check with a more natural flow of things. whether it's picking up a bushel of apples in the fall, or plucking fresh asparagus stalks from my mom's garden in the spring, i find that coming to food from this conscious standpoint allows me to appreciate each thing nature has to offer.  

you can also find some of my work featured on Food52, Buzzfeed, Conde Nast Traveller, Huffington Post, Gardenista, and you can see additional press here.  my first cookbook, Chickpea Flour Does It All, debuted in April of 2016 published by The Experiment.  

let's collaborate

i'm always looking to work with people on various projects whether it's sponsored posts, recipe development, photography, guest posts, or other related collaborations.  please feel free to reach out, you can contact me here


all photography on this site is taken by me, on occasion my husband gets behind the camera.  i shoot everything with a nikon d800 and generally use a 50mm T1.4 zeiss lens, periodically i'll use the 85mm or 25mm of the same make.
