Hi, I’m Sam, and I’m so happy to have you here!
Thanks for stopping by my sweet little corner of the internet.
Sugar Spun Run is a dessert and baking blog dedicated to sharing sweet, simple, and from-scratch recipes, though the occasional savory side dish also makes an appearance from time to time!
I have been baking and experimenting in the kitchen as far back as I can remember, and now I love developing my own recipes and sharing them here, and there’s nothing I appreciate more than hearing from someone who has tried and loved one of my recipes.
A little more about me
I adore all sweets, but ice cream and these chocolate chip cookies are my favorite
I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology (with an accidental minor in Philosophy), I was home-schooled until college, I’m named after Samantha from Bewitched, and I hate coffee but love caffeine, so I have a sort of unhealthy relationship with energy drinks 😳. Up until last year, I worked in research, first in Behavioral Pharmacology and most recently in head and neck cancer.
I’ve been published as an author on a few manuscripts, but my real writing goal is to someday write a cookbook (and I know many of you have asked me for one… someday!).
In 2014 I married my best friend and boyfriend of almost 7 years: Zachary. This guy is the only reason Sugar Spun Run even exists today, he spent the first two years of the blog doing everything around the house — all of the laundry, housework, dishes, everything so that I could share my recipes with all of you while working a full-time job.
Zach and I met while working together at a fast food restaurant when we were 16, and he finally asked me out two years later. We now live just north of the Mason-Dixon line with our three dogs — Penny, (Princess) Leia, and Colt (pictured in reverse-order below).
I share recipes three times a week with the occasional lifestyle Crumbs post sprinkled in. All of my recipes have been tested multiple times and I never share a recipe until I’m 100% satisfied with it. My recipes are often tested outside of my own kitchen as well.
