Hi, I’m Sam!
Thanks for stopping by my sweet little corner of the internet.
In case you haven’t figured it out, we are all about the sugar here.
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.
My goal with Sugar Spun Run is to create and share delicious desserts that you can make at home from scratch with easy-to-find ingredients and little-moderate effort (though I can’t promise you won’t find any that require a little elbow grease, but I assure you it will be a labor of love).
A little more about me:
I adore all sweets, but ice cream is my favorite (and now, these chocolate chip cookies are, too).
I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology, I was home schooled until college, I’m named after Samantha from Bewitched, and I use (way) too many parentheses in my writing.
I was just married (!) in October 2014 to my best friend and boyfriend of almost 7 years: Zachary. We met while working together at a fast food restaurant when we were 16, and he finally asked me out two years later.
You’ll hear me talk about him
too much a lot here.
Zach and I recently bought a house together in Southern PA where we live with his pit-bull/german shepherd/lab mix, Penny, and my newly acquired German Shepherd puppy, (Princess) Leia.
I try to post regularly (Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday) but creating recipes can be a very time-consuming process and I do work full-time as well. I will not share a recipe until I am 100% satisfied with it, so often that means 2 or 3 or 4 attempts before I get it just perfect, and so sometimes it takes a little longer to get a recipe blog-ready.
SugarSpunRun is a work in progress and is constantly evolving. Your questions and comments are always, always welcome and appreciated. Thanks again for taking the time to check out my blog!
OH! And before you go, I’d love it if you’d connect with me on my Instagram , Facebook , Twitter (I’m still getting the hang of Twitter…) or Pinterest page, and don’t forget to sign up for my e-mails to have my recipes delivered right to your inbox as soon as they’re published!
