About Us


Hi, I’m Melanie Carr, owner and founder of Dish Dish, and I’m so happy you stopped by today to learn a little about Dish Dish – Your Online Family Cookbook.

After struggling for years to keep recipes organized, be creative with menu planning (instead of making the same 5 recipes over and over), and find a way to electronically organize my recipes in one place so I could find them easily and keep track of menus and a shopping list, I created Dish Dish – for my family and yours.



On the blog I share recipes, cooking tips, family celebration ideas, and encouragement for keeping family time around the dinner table a fun priority. (Get 30% off our Digital Recipe Album and don’t miss any recent posts when you subscribe via email  — we won’t send spam and you can unsubscribe at any time).

I love seeing families enjoy time around the dinner table and planning meals, made easier by saving their favorite family recipes in an online cookbook (recipe book) where it’s easy to access recipes electronically while at home or on the go, edit them with photos and notes, create shopping lists and menus, and share with family members around the world.

I’ve been married to my incredible husband, Charlie, for over twenty-five years.  We home-schooled our children and have lived in Flower Mound, Texas, for more than twenty years. When I have a few free minutes, I enjoy a good book, cross-stitch, crochet, jigsaw puzzles, and playing the piano.  We are active with volunteering in our local church, neighborhood and various community groups including SOSResponds.org, LovePacs.org, JourneytoDream.com, among others.
