  • 10 Thanksgiving Recipes

    Hi friends, today I have a life update to share and some recipes for your Thanksgiving day menu! You might have noticed that my posting has been very light over the last few months. Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere, I still enjoy blogging and have so many recipes that I want to share with you! But this blog is a hobby and doesn’t pay our bills. Back in January when Mr. Sam and I were planning for 2018 one of the main goals we had for the year was relocating to be closer to our families and that meant that we needed new jobs. The last several months have been full…

  • Coffee & Dish #21

    Hi Friends! It’s been a while since I’ve shared one of these posts and today is your lucky day because I’m sharing fun things for fall! I picked up one of these cozy knit tops at Target. I love that it is thinner than a traditional sweater but still cozy AND it looks adorable with my olive pants. I picked up a new (to me) cookbook by Joy the Baker while I was on vacation this summer and there are so many things I want to bake including the breakfast nachos and the apple pie with CHEDDAR-BACON crust! drooling yet? Looking for new fall decorations? I love the neutral color of these pumpkins and I…

  • Baked Chicken Chimichangas [with Instant Pot Salsa Chicken]

    Baked Chicken Chimichangas [with Instant Pot Salsa Chicken]

    One of my all-time favorite things to order at Mexican restaurants is a Chimichanga. They are filled with a cheesy chicken mixture, fried, and then smothered in queso. Oh man, I haven’t had a good, fried chimichanga in a very long time!     These days while I try to stay away from most fried foods, I don’t stay away from recreating my favorite restaurant dishes at home. When I saw the post that inspired today’s recipe I knew I had to try them (and put my own spin on it, of course).   Today’s recipe calls for pre-cooked chicken and I’ve included the recipe for my Instant Pot Salsa…

  • Lofthouse Style Sugar Cookies

    These sugar cookies are ultra soft, slathered with a creamy frosting, and topped with sprinkles! They are a delicious copycat for the Lofthouse cookies you can find at the grocery store.     I fell in love with these cookies while I was in college (the grocery store ones) and I still have dreams about them. Light and fluffy with the perfect creamy frosting. For the last year, I was on a hunt for the perfect copycat recipe to try at home. And today I’m sharing it with you. while this recipe doesn’t call for any crazy ingredients, they do need time, there’s mixing, chilling, rolling, and frosting. But they…

  • Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies | Sam's Dish

    Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies

    I realize I’ve posted some slightly complicated recipes lately (I’m talking about you, cinnamon rolls), but today we’re going back to simple. Simple cookies with uncomplicated ingredients and cookie baking methods (Yay for no chill time!). Simple, but definitely delicious.     Ok, before we get to today’s recipe, let’s talk about something important for a minute. Are you a chewy or crispy cookie person? Don’t answer right away, take a minute and think about it. I’m usually happily a chewy cookie lover, but today’s cookies changed my mind and they might change yours too. I think you know where this is headed. For all of my crispy cookie-loving friends, do…
