Hello there! My name is Samantha. I’m a university student and I love reading, writing, and snacking. Lucky for me, this blog involves all three of those things!
I’ve always loved children’s storybooks. Sometimes the most powerful, engaging narratives come through with short prose.
I decided to start this blog to encourage readers to revisit their favourite books from childhood. Maybe you have a kid of your own that you’re reading to, or maybe it’s simply been a while since you’ve read “Where the Wild Things Are” or “Harold and the Purple Crayon.”
Each post profiles a storybook and features a snack inspired by said book. I only include recipes that are easy and that (hopefully!) can be made with what you already have in your cupboards. I also try my best to keep most treats “nut free” so everyone can enjoy them.
I hope that my posts will encourage you to re-read your favourite storybooks (and maybe enjoy a tasty treat while you do so). If you’d like to see your favourite book on Stories and Snackies, I’d love to hear from you! Leave me a comment or drop me a line at smashenhurst @ gmail dot com.
