• Saturday Coffee & Dish – January 2017

    Happy 2017! We’ve made it through the first week of January. I saw a meme the other day that said we need a day between December 31 and January 1 and I completely agree. I wanted to enjoy all of the fun of 2016, but also be prepared for 2017. Anyways, lets get  down to the first Coffee & Dish for 2017.   {ONE} It’s been a great first year for Sam’s Dish.

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Saturday Coffee & Dish – July 2016

    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…
