Welcome to the Dish Dish Pro Membership & Bamboo Cutting Board Giveaway!
Sponsored by: Dish Dish
Hosted by: Simply At Home Mom
All thoughts expressed here are from Simply At Home Mom:
I received free product samples in exchange for a fair and honest review, however my opinions are 100% my own.
As you know I love sharing my favorite recipes here at Simply At Home Mom. Cooking and baking for my family is one of my favorite things to do and I hope you have enjoyed my recipes that I've posted so far. I recently received the opportunity to try out the pro membership at Dish Dish, an awesome recipe sharing site for people like me who love to cook and share recipes with friends and family! I also received a beautiful bamboo cutting board to try out as well.
I bet you probably have a ton of recipes written on index cards or kept in a box collecting dust that you would love to use but don't always think about since it's just so much easier and faster to look up a recipe online than it is to search through that box, right? Well at Dish Dish, you finally have a home for all of those lost family recipes. Gather them up and add them to your free Dish Dish account and have them all in one easy to find place!
It's a breeze to add your recipes to Dish Dish. You can choose to add them manually by filling out the information and adding your own photographs to go with them, or if your recipes are already online at another site, it gets even easier! Just download the Recipe Import Tool (free for Pro account users) and it basically does the rest for you, even adding your recipe photos! Your recipes can be kept private or be made public so everyone can enjoy them.
Another wonderful feature of Dish Dish is the shopping lists! Add ingredients from any recipe onto your shopping list and click Print Shopping List to have your list ready to go when you are.
Your Dish Dish recipes can be accessed from anywhere….on your phone, your iPad, or any other mobile device. Sharing your recipes in your very own online cookbook is easy too. This is great for family members who live far away but who still would love to have those favorite recipes at their fingertips!
I had the opportunity to try out the Dish Dish Pro membership which has even more benefits! What if you don't have time to add your own recipes to your Dish Dish account? With Dish Dish Pro, you don't have to. Just send them your first 20 recipes along with photos and they'll add them to your account for you! How easy is that? You can also enjoy using the Import Recipe Tool as well. I found it so easy to just send in my recipes to Dish Dish and have them added for me. I also tested out the Import Recipe Tool and it took only a few minutes to import my recipes from my blog at Simply At Home Mom to Dish Dish! The tool even adds your pictures too.
With the Pro membership you'll also get a Menu Planner for important events, decorative recipe templates, the ability to print recipes in various sizes, videos linked to your recipes, and more! The Pro membership is very affordable too, at only $19 a year!
For my review I also received a bamboo cutting board to try and this has made a lovely addition to my kitchen. My old cutting boards were just about worn out, so much so that I felt like hiding them in my cabinets if company came over. This cutting board is completely eco-friendly which is important to me, and measures 8 1/2 inches by 15 inches which is perfect for all my needs. It fits in my kitchen drawers but can also easily hang from a wall in your kitchen just as nicely. I found the cutting board to be easy to clean and fun to use.
Now for the best part….one lucky winner will receive a Dish Dish Pro Membership plus one of these bamboo cutting boards! All you have to do is enter the giveaway below! Giveaway runs from Jan. 28th at midnight to Feb. 4th at midnight. Good Luck to all who enter!

I love going to the spa. Unfortunately, my bank account and schedule do not allow for that in cost or time. So I started looking for ways to bring spa experiences home to find a better way to relax at home and reduce my stress level. My favorite way is by soaking in the bathtub. The trick to a good, relaxing soak that makes you feel good is to find quality bath products that make you feel luxurious, while in your own bathroom! I received a Lavender Dead Sea Bath Set from Artisan Scents in exchange for my honest opinion.
What did I think?
What you use in your bath water can really make a difference to how you feel when you get out. You can choose an uplifting scent, something relaxing or soothing or even something to help with illness! When I am really in the mood to unwind and am looking forward to a restful night’s sleep, I turn to lavender. Lavender has long been lauded for its stress relieving properties and this set from Artisan Scents will help you not only achieve relaxation, but healthier skin, too!
This beautifully wrapped gift set comes with three bath-enhancing products, as well as a sachet of lavender that is perfect for your dresser drawers, or to slip under your pillow for some added aromatherapy! The three products you can expect are: the Dead Sea Mineral Salt, the Dead Sea Mineral Body Scrub, and the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask. This set has quickly become one of my favorites – not only for stress relief, but for leaving my skin soft, silky and super moist! The Dead Sea Mineral Salts are great for just a hot soak in the tub, they leave a light lavender fragrance on your skin that smells natural and wonderful. The Dead Sea Mineral Scrub is a great way to exfoliate your skin and leave you feeling fresh and clean!
