Hi, y’all; I am Trisha Haas, the food blogger behind Salty Side Dish and Viral Recipes (now recipes are all easily accessible here!).
I am a Florida native, and we thrive on the best Southern cuisine and incredible side dishes. I’ve been married for 22 years and have two amazing kids who, despite their mother being an awesome cook, still prefer chicken nuggets and french fries.
For the past 14 years, I have been a professional blogger, creating, developing, and sharing step-by-step content to help over a million readers a month feel confident in their kitchens. While my bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida was in criminology, my experience with college cooking set me up for a lifetime of great food development.
Food was always the center of my childhood, and I can remember a family Thanksgiving with more than 80 guests! I have been trained to make desserts and dinners in Rome, as well as the old-fashioned school of Grandma’s home cooking.
Recipes on Salty Side Dish have proudly been featured on Buzzfeed, CountryLiving, Food Gawker, Parade magazine, Seventeen, Yahoo!, and many more amazing places. As a featured speaker and often-referenced recipe website, you can trust that my goal is to have you make the perfect recipe every time.
I LOVE cooking, from testing viral recipes (and all the changes to make those trendy recipes better) to sharing the best appetizers, salads, and side dish recipes that make the winters that much cozier and summer gatherings all the more special.
