Hello – welcome to Feisty Eats. Why Feisty Eats? That is a play on my “real” name Sarah Feist. I am a 30-something full-time employee living in Hazen, ND.


At Feisty Eats I hope to share with you some passions in my personal life which include:

Food: I love to eat! I love to cook! I love to bake! I do my best (with a full-time job and budget) to create or try new recipes each week. I have a strong interest with food that is grown locally and eating healthy…most the time. I try to use local meat or use meat my husband has hunted. I do eat vegetarian meals too though! As for my desserts, I am all about full-fat. I try to make things that are easy to assemble with ingredients that are easily found. I live 50+ miles from a big city and usually make due with a small grocery offering.


Drink: I love beer! I love to try different beers and am a huge fan of happy hour. Obviously, some of the things I said above can go out the door with local and healthy but it is all about balance.


Entertain: I love to socialize! I love going out to eat, trying new restaurants and trying different menu items. I enjoy having people over to our home to entertain and visit as well. Now that I live in a smaller town, I expect we will be entertaining more that going out.

Extra-curricular: I love to ___! I’m pretty open to trying almost anything once or twice. I enjoy being outside and love to travel and try to do so when possible. Even if it is only 20 miles from home I try to make any trip an adventure.


Exercise: I love to exercise and have a passion for it, especially since April 1, 2013 when I committed to losing weight and getting in shape. Exercise is a stress reliever for me and “me” time that I cherise. I love spin class, full body exercises, running, cycling, swimming and boot-camp type workouts. I aim to be active every day and do a focused workout 5-6 times per week for at least one half hour. I belong to Surge Fitness in Hazen during the winter months where I attend various fitness classes. In nicer months I work out at home or outside.

This is our yellow lab Winston Waterford Wildz, better known as Winston. He is my true love and my walking companion. He loves to swim and and has a great smile. For real.


Last and definitely not least is our cat Brinklie. She came from a barn by Fargo and is living the high life in our house/backyard. She is very entertaining, loves to go outside and really loves to chase Winston’s tail. She likes to curl up with Winston…but I’m not sure the feeling is mutual. I like to call her FeistyCat.


Let me know if you have any questions!

This is my blog so you should probably know a few things you can expect on this site:

GRAMMAR/SPELLING – I’m not a professional writer, I journal this for personal reasons. I am sorry in advance for typos or incorrect grammar. I type like I speak which can be dis-jointed and might make completely no sense. That’s me – I’ll try my best.

GENERAL LIFE – obviously (I hope) my life isn’t perfect or all rainbows and puppies. I will choose what to place on the blog and reserve the right to keep any bad, painful, embarrassing or even, great happenings in my life off the blog. The husband isn’t too keen on “the blogs” so I will not talk about him unless I get his OK. I don’t ever intend to brag or be better than anyone else (here or in real life), so even if all you see are cupcakes! and cookies! and excellent dinners! I struggle with the same things everyone else does…crazy family, arguments, work and everyday stress.

WORK – I do not plan on talking much about my 40-hour per week job for obvious reasons.

FOOD – not a big fan of seafood. I wouldn’t think you will see much of that, or mushrooms on the blog!

If you have any questions let me know in the comments or you can reach me at feistyeats at gmail dot com.
