Hello! Welcome to Dish-and-Dash!  Are you looking for quick and easy recipes to get you in and out of the kitchen in no time flat? Do you want delicious fare with no fuss or fancy ingredients?  Then you have come to the right place! I’m JoDee Speck and I don’t really love to cook.  Does that shock you?  I don’t love to cook and yet I’m writing a cooking blog?  Truth is, my family likes to eat, and so do I.  I’m not the kind of cook who can whip up something fancy, but I have found that I can make simple, quick dishes that everyone enjoys eating. That’s the “Dish” part of my blog name.  The “Dash” comes from everyone eating and then dashing off again to whatever they were into before the dinner bell rang, including myself. Currently, I am working full-time and just graduated with a Master’s Degree in Public Communications.  So I am pretty busy and like to “Dish and Dash” as well.

I’ve been married for 24 years and have three children. Throughout the years, I have tried thousands of different dishes.  Just think of how many meals I have made over all this time! I’ll share some easy to prepare recipes that can be made without a lot of fuss.  I’ll even share my “Pinterest Fails” along the way as I am always surprised at some of my creations that just don’t turn out like those fabulous looking pictures I find on Pinterest. You can only learn from your mistakes after you have admitted you’ve made them, right?  So I keep trying new things and learning along the way.  Join me on my journey!  Oh, if you are looking for Martha Stewart style things, you won’t find it here.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Martha and all those other Super-Moms out there, but I don’t fit that bill.  Just down to earth, simple ideas to get the meal on the table and get you back to your life outside of the kitchen.
