Making the better choice

A member of the Let’s Dish! team has recently hit the 100 pound weight loss mark (congrats to you!) and looks simply amazing. When people ask her the secret, her response is “I almost always make the better choice.”  We live in a world of crazy fad diets, unrealistic workout programs and thousand of “self-help” […]

All this dishing makes us thirsty

Does anyone really find refreshment in a warm glass of lemonade? Not us, that’s for sure. There’s a solution: the Let’s Dish! tervis tumbler, complete with double-walled insulation that keeps your drinks cold (or hot!) even in 98 degree record-breaking temperatures (wow!). It’s the perfect addition to roadtrips with the family, lounging by the pool, […]

An Ode to Let’s Dish!

Last week, we posted this to facebook: “Wanna be our featured disher for May? Post why you love Let’s Dish! and you could be picked for all the fame, glory… and a $25 gift card!” Our dishers are the best so we got a ton of fantastic responses.  One in particular stood out, however, and […]

A tribute to teachers

To kick-off last year’s Teacher of the Year awards, I blogged about my most memorable teacher growing up – Miss Shoemaker.  So, this year (our 4th annual!), I asked the Let’s Dish! team to take a trip down memory lane and remember their teacher who was most inspirational: I’ll never forget my Freshman English teacher, […]

Looking for a little weight loss inspiration? Meet Fran!

A few days ago, I posted the following question on facebook: “Have you lost weight with help from Let’s Dish!?”  While all of the responses were great, we were amazed by one from long-time disher Fran: Wow! 158 lbs!  We knew we had to get the story!  Luckily, Fran was willing to share her weight-loss […]

21 days and counting…

I’ve often heard that it takes three weeks for something to become a habit.  Today, its officially been 21 days since we’ve all made those dreaded new years resolutions.  Are you still going strong? Have you cheated? Or, have you thrown in the towel completely? This year, the Let’s Dish! team made a few resolutions […]

Celebrating 11 million plates of food

Our Happy Hour last Wednesday was the perfect way to commemorate our 5th anniversary of dishing in Virginia. While the weather wasn’t in our favor (100+ degrees and humid!), the store was full of smiles, chatter, and the fantastic smell of our new Roasted Java Pork Tenderloin roasting in the oven. Thanks to all who […]

Good Deeds Make Good News Stories

A few weeks ago, we wrote posted a letter that we received from Dave Abel, a brother of the UVA Chi Psi Fraternity, that described a truly heartwarming story of brotherly love. We weren’t the only ones who thought it was newsworthy. Earlier this week, the Charlottesville Daily Progress picked up the story… and included […]

You may have noticed that we’ve taken a little hiatus from our blog, but I think this letter is a great way to kick it off again! Enjoy this heartwarming story from a group of truly awesome guys: Dear Let’s Dish!: I am writing to say thank you! I am a UVA alumnus, class of […]

How we’ve lost over 40lbs with help from Let’s Dish!

One of the questions we hear fairly often from new customers is “Well, is it diet food?” Of course, we say Let’s Dish! is technically not “diet food” as we all tend to think of it, but we do explain that our meals can certainly help busy families live a healthy lifestyle. When we heard this […]

Dear Miss Shoemaker: Thanks!

During my freshman year of high school, I had a history teacher named Miss Shoemaker who (gasp) dared to give us multiple projects at once.  As 14-year-olds, we couldn’t believe it.  She was the “meanest teacher ever” and I spent a lot of time complaining about her to my friends, parents, and relatives.  I remember […]

Thanks for the love!

There’s nothing like feeling loved – especially on Valentine’s Day!  I spent some time yesterday looking at reviews from our customers on yelp.com, and, on behalf of the team here at Let’s Dish!, I just want to say, thanks for the love!  Your reviews were the perfect gift (much better then chocolate or flowers – […]

Operation Feed Haiti raises $1000 for the relief efforts

With your support in Operation Feed Haiti, we were able to donate $1000 to the American Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. As a small, family-run company, we truly couldn’t have done it without your help.  I want to share with you this message from the American Red Cross:

$20 donated to Haiti for every session booked today or tomorrow

Collapsed government buildings. Damaged hospitals. As many as 3 million people affected. The news of the Haiti earthquake disaster hit all of us hard at Let’s Dish! (as I’m sure it did to you and your family). Yesterday was filled with checking CNN for updates, googling statistics and asking, “How can we help?” Beyond getting […]

A Lesson in Saving

Last spring, my friends and I spent hundreds of dollars at restaurants and take-out on vacation.  We didn’t realize we could save over $30 a day by bringing great-tasting, family-friendly meals from Let’s Dish!  Here’s the story: Spending a long weekend away was exactly what we needed, but we didn’t want to go broke doing so!  Excitedly, the four […]
