Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

ConAgra's The Dish. My New Kitchen Companion.

ConAgra's The Dish. My New Kitchen Companion.

If you've known me for a bit then you know I love to eat and share recipes. I've worked hard to improve my food photography so I can up my food blogging game and share some original recipes with you. When we aren't traveling I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I follow a ton of incredible food bloggers and am often inspired.

The Dish is an innovative new resource offered by ConAgra Foods exclusively tailored to bloggers. It's incredibly unique and has some fantastic content. It has four main content areas:

  • Seasonal Spotlight: Content tailored exclusively to what's fresh and in season.
  • Ask Our Team: ConAgra's very own food experts ready to answer bloggers' questions. The panel includes some impressive people including several successful bloggers.
  • Recipe Resources: Self explanatory spot full of popular recipes to inspire your creations.
  • First Look, First Taste: Here is where it gets really exciting. Sign up with your blog URL and gain access to an exclusive members only area that includes current promotions, kitchen tips, cooking advice, AND a spot to request product samples.

I respect a brand that takes bloggers seriously. ConAgra knows we are the real deal.

90% of my weekly meal plan comes from blogger recipes I've pinned on Pinterest, and I'm sure I'm not alone. How cool is it that The Dish took our unique needs as bloggers and tailored an entire site around it? I've never seen a site like The Dish before.

I use it as a kitchen companion to find recipe post ideas (finding the time to write is a different story) but also for serious blogging advice. I was just talking to a friend about creating a business plan for our blogs. I was cruising through The Dish and found this post about - you guessed it - creating a blogging business plan! Wow. Impressed.

Relevant and thoughtful content tailored exclusively to bloggers. Love it. con-agra-the-dish. con-agra-the-dish. con-agra-the-dish.

I cook. She eats. Match made in heaven.
