  • Summer Break 2017

    image source Hi Y’all, I wanted to stop in and let you know that I’m going on Summer Break. You might have noticed I’ve been pretty quiet with new content on the blog the last few weeks and between my day job, traveling, and soaking up every last bit of summer, I decided that it’s best for me to officially take a couple weeks off from the blog. I’m looking forward to relaxing and spending some extra time with my husband. Don’t worry, just because I won’t be blogging doesn’t mean that I won’t be working on new recipes. I’ll still be active on social media – follow me over…

  • Sam’s Dish 2016 Favorites

      One year ago, this week, I took a risk and started Sam’s Dish. In 2016 I shared 71 (wow) recipes with you. Lots of cooking, baking and eating happened in my little kitchen. It was a good first year! Last night I sat down with my hubby and we looked through all of the recipes on the blog. I lost count of the number of times that he said things like “that was really good” or “you haven’t made that in a long time” or “we ate good last year”. lol. So today I’m sharing our (mine and my husband’s) favorite recipes from 2016.     Here are our…

  • Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas, y’all! I hope you all were able to spend time yesterday with family and friends on Christmas Day.     This year I had to slow down and remember that Christmas isn’t actually about the perfectly decorated trees and professional Christmas cards, or the gifts we give and parties we attend, or enjoying hot chocolate and baking dozens of cookies. Christmas is about remembering that the baby in the manger came to save the world.   It’s been a fun 1st year for Sam’s Dish and I’m so glad you are part of it! I’m taking the rest of the year off to spend time celebrating Christmas and just…
