Welcome and thanks for checking out my blog, Dandy Dishes!

My name is Lindsey and I simply love to cook. I currently live in Plant City, Florida with my husband Grant and our two adorable pups Eisenhower and Boomer. Besides the great outdoors and music, cooking is my favorite past time. I'm like a little school girl when a new post from one of my favorite bloggers pops up on my reader and pretty much start thinking about what I'm going to cook for dinner before I finish washing dishes the night before. I firmly believe in eating local and fresh produce not because it's trendy or 'green' but because it tastes better. I believe the best meals come from your own kitchen and that they should be fresh but budget friendly, quick and easy and most importantly good for you and taste great!  I firmly believe that time spent around the table with the ones you love over a home cooked meal is the best way to spend your evenings.

'The Boy' and I both work for a local beer distributor and spend our weekends taking advantage of the amazing state we live in and all it has to offer. When we aren't mountain biking, kayaking, surfing, playing tennis or camping you can find us hanging out with our friends knocking back a couple of beers and listening to great music. We have a zest for life and try and live each and every day to the fullest.

I hope you all enjoy reading and sharing recipies as much as I enjoy posting them and thanks again for stopping by! If you have any questions, you can email me at dandydishes (at) gmail (dot) com.
