Hi, I'm Samantha! I'm the baker, blogger, photographer, and writer behind Savor The Spoonful. First of all, thank you for being here!
I started Savor The Spoonful during my sophomore year of college when I had the spark of motivation to start a food blog. All my life, I've always loved four things more than anything else: Horses, Jesus, Baking, and Photography.
I was intrigued by the idea of combining my love of baking with my passion for photography. I had never tried food photography specifically, but I was excited to expand my photography skillset and learn the craft.
From the comfort of my dorm room, I quickly started researching everything I needed to start a food blog. Not too long afterward, Savor The Spoonful was born.
Why "Savor The Spoonful"?
I named my blog Savor The Spoonful because I believe you should savor every spoonful of your food. Have you ever heard the phrase, "guilt-free?" Yeah, me too. And let me tell you how much I hate it.
"Guilt" should never be a word associated with eating. Our bodies need food to live a healthy, happy, fulfilling, life. And that absolutely includes indulgent treats and decadent desserts. My mission with Savor The Spoonful is to inspire a life without food rules and dieting.
I (just like many women in the world) know what it's like to deal with disordered eating habits and the struggles that come along with them. Unfortunately, I know many others have experienced similar struggles, and I want Savor The Spoonful to be a safe space where you can find delicious recipes without the diet talk attached.
To put it simply, "guilt" is not an ingredient here. This is a diet-free zone! All foods belong in a healthy and balanced diet, and nobody should feel the pressure to restrict themselves from enjoying the desserts they love.
Here, you'll find a variety of vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free breakfast and dessert recipes that are super easy to make. As a plant-based eater, I want to provide dietary-friendly recipes for you that don't require any fancy baking skills or extensive time to make. We're all busy, and baking should be fun!
If you're here as a fellow food photographer or blogger, I have plenty of helpful resources for you too. If you're wondering how to start your own food blog, improve your food photography, or work with food brands, take a peek at my one-on-one coaching services. I'd love to help you!
Running a food blog is a wild ride sometimes, but I love every minute. Thank you for being a part of this with me. It brings a smile to my face every time someone makes one of my recipes, and I feel so honored to be a part of your kitchen!
I love connecting with you, no matter who you are or how you found yourself here. Please contact me anytime. You can follow along on Instagram, Pinterest, and please join my email list to stay up to date with all the latest recipes and food photography resources.
If you're a brand interested in exploring a partnership together, please check out my work with me page or submit a client inquiry form. I offer a variety of creative services including food and product photography, recipe development, and sponsored content. I am always looking to collaborate with other like-minded individuals, bloggers, and brands
Thanks again for being here. I appreciate you more than you know!
