• Saturday Coffee and Dish – October 2016

    Hey Y’all! Fall is officially here and it’s been cold and rainy this week. That means it’s time for sweaters, football, and soup! I have a couple new soup recipes I’m working on and I’ll hopefully be able to share them with you soon! Labor Day weekend seems like forever ago, but it wasn’t. Here is a picture from our beach trip!   I’m loving my new candle! It’s perfect for fall and it’s on sale today! Have you checked out my fall Pinterest board? On the way to the gym this morning I noticed they are putting in a new Starbucks and it’s in a more convenient location for me…

  • Saturday Coffee & Dish – September 2016

    Hey Y’all! Hope you are enjoying a few last tastes of summer this Labor Day weekend. We are spending the weekend in Delaware and had planned to spend large amounts of time on the sunny beach, but hurricane Hermine changed those plans. So we are enjoying a weekend away from home, watching football, drinking coffee and watching the rain fall. A little hurricane won’t keep us from having a relaxing weekend!! If you’ve been a reader for a while you might notice that the address changed and I’m now officially samsdish.com! And if that wasn’t cool enough, the site also got a makeover! Bear with me for the next few…

  • Saturday Coffee & Dish – August 2016

    There’s so much to talk about in July! Here are some of the highlights. We spent the 4th of July week with my family in Georgia and had a great time. We spent lots of time hanging out at my parent’s house, eating and playing Dutch Blitz. Have you played it before? It’s definitely a favorite of ours. I only posted one picture, but I think there’s a similar one from each day we were down there.   One morning we made donuts and I think they loved them! Not that I was really worried, who doesn’t love donuts?! We also celebrated my youngest sister’s 16th birthday with lunch and shopping…

    Happy Saturday, Y’all! I hope you are enjoying summer! June was a busy month for us. On June 5th I celebrated my 29th birthday. The hubby spoiled me with a day of shopping and dinner out. Hubby surprised me with donuts for my birthday breakfast! And check out that cute plate that I found while shopping the day before. #givemealltheflamingos I made and enjoyed this delicious Double Chocolate Cake! I tried and fell in love with the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew and it was my new favorite for June! I think I lost count of how many I drank! Then on June 18th hubby and I celebrated our 5th anniversary. We started the anniversary celebration…

    How is it June already?! Instead of saying that May was really busy (I’m learning that life is just really busy) I’m just going to say that May was another typical month at our house. We started out May with a 1 and 1/2 week trip to California that began with us driving up highway 1 from LA to SF in a convertible! I’m working on a blog post and a photo book about all of the fun things we did and all of the yummy things we ate. I’ll leave you with a picture of this sandwich we got while in SF. It’s a grilled cheese sandwich with macaroni and cheese…

      Did y’all know that tomorrow is national chocolate chip day?! I think we need to celebrate by eating handfuls of chocolate chips. Here are some of my favorite recipes made with chocolate chips and I’m working on another chocolate chip cookie recipe that I’ll share with you on Monday! Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies This was the first recipe I posted on Sam’s Dish over 4 months ago! This is a soft and chewy cookie with just a hint of cinnamon. Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake I wasn’t a fan of cookie cakes before trying this recipe and now I can’t get enough! It’s moist and delicious with or without frosting.

  • Sam’s on Vacation! 

    I had plans to prep posts for this week before we left, but it came down to packing or blogging and I chose packing. So no new posts this week while I’m enjoying a much needed vacation with my husband!

    Hey y’all! April was a whirlwind around here! The beginning of April my sisters came to visit over spring break and we had the best time! We don’t get to hang out just the 4 of us very often, so when we do it is special time for us. Our weekend included lots of shopping, some redecorating around my house and lots of eating! If you follow any of us on social media you probably saw some of the pictures we posted that weekend. I’ve been working on my spring cleaning list and don’t know what all I need to include! Have any tips, leave them below in the comments. Usually about the…

      Happy Saturday! March was an extremely busy month at our house and I’m looking forward to purposefully slowing things down in April. My sisters are on spring break this week and are coming to visit! There will be lots of shopping, cooking, eating and girl talk and I can’t wait! Do you use the Target Cartwheel app? I love shopping at Target and I love getting a good deal. With the Cartwheel app, I can scan each item as I put it in my cart to see if I can get an additional discount. I got a package from one of my sisters recently and it included this adorable bunny cookie cutter set! I’m thinking some spring sugar…
