Have yourself a merry little Christmas…..scone

Our Signature Scones are pretty much perfect as-is, I know.  But it’s the holiday season and I thought I would see if I could turn our favorite scones into Christmas cookies.   Check these out!  I believe they could compete with just about any homemade Christmas cookie!!  Perfect for a party, gifting…or the cookie swap. Cranberry-Orange […]

Welcome to December!

Welcome to December! December is here!  Hanukkah has begun and Christmas will be here before we know it. And then there’s the New Year…so many celebrations in one month!  When planning the December menu we think about what role dinner plays in December. What meal can be cooked (from frozen) on the night you need […]

The 7 AM Solution

We all know about the little window of time that we crawl through each evening. It begins at a precise moment shortly after the kids are done with sports or activities, stepping off of the late school bus, or when we finish sending the last email at work to face traffic and make it home. […]

Welcome to September!

Welcome to September! The September menu is always one of my favorite ones to plan.  After months of light, warm weather meals, it’s time to bring back some hearty Let’s Dish! favorites like Chicken Parmigiana and Wine Country Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes. Have you ever had chicken with peanut butter? It pairs up beautifully in […]

Meet February’s Featured Disher

I recently reached out to our Dishers via Facebook in search of a ‘Featured Disher’ for our February e-newsletter. This response, from Anne Smith, who dishes at our Timonium, MD location, caught my eye. In light of Valentine’s day coming up, I loved hearing that Anne and her husband often dish together to get in […]

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, […]

If you’ve been in our stores this month, you know that we’re offering trendy, super-practical Scout cooler bags as part of our in-store […]

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 […]

Celebrating five years of dishing in Virginia

It seems like just yesterday that we were one day from opening and I was standing at the door of Dominion Virginia Power’s main office begging them to turn power on to the shopping center. It was August 2005, and we were the first tenant to open in the Cameron Chase Shopping Center in Ashburn. […]

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 […]

It takes a village…

We’re all so busy these days with our careers, children and countless items on our to do lists. Sure, Let’s Dish! helps by providing a healthy, quick dinner even on those crazy nights, but, let’s face it, it truly takes a village to navigate through daily life…complete with neighbors who care. It amazes me that […]

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 […]

We’re always mentioning that Let’s Dish! is a great solution for families, and we’re delighted that A Parent in Silver Spring (a funny, parenting blog written by Silver Spring mom and freelance writer, Jessica McFadden) agrees! On her latest blog post, Jessica writes, “After all that Thanksgiving cooking you’re doing today and tomorrow…wouldn’t is be […]

Bigger Isn’t Better – Portion Control 101

Even if we’re eating the right foods, we can still eat too much.  Lack of portion control is a BIG reason our nation is getting chubbier.  Portion sizes are much smaller than you might think.  Here are some common portions: 1 slice of bread ½ cup cooked pasta or rice 1 small piece of fruit […]
