About Recipe This

Welcome to Recipe This!

Thank you for stopping by and it is a pleasure to welcome you to RecipeThis.com. Recipe This is a family run food blog with a focus on family recipes with kitchen gadgets. Or as we like to say at Recipe This “with a little help from our gadget friends”.

RecipeThis.com is run by husband and wife team Dom and Sam. Dom was a chef when he met Sam and Sam is self-taught food addict.

Just like most families we are busy, and we work long hours and value our family time. That is when our kitchen gadgets work like magic.

We can cook low fat fries in our Air Fryer, eat veggie loaded soups in our Soup Maker, defrost meat fast in the Instant Pot, dump a curry into the Slow Cooker and not forgetting homemade ice cream in our Ice Cream Maker. 

We don’t want family meals to be over complicated just enjoyable and easy to prep for us and our family.

Why Listen To Recipe This?

At Recipe This we have been using kitchen gadgets for many years, Dom is also culinary trained, making sure you get the best kitchen gadget cooking advice from professionals. There are very few food blogs that have a trained chef available to you, giving you proper cooking advice and tips as well as great recipes.

We also cook exclusively at home (as well as for Recipe This readers) with kitchen gadgets. The air fryer is not something we get out once a week for a recipe, or a gadget we have bought just because it’s a trend, but something we personally use several times a day and for several years.

The Recipe This Team


Sam is the face and voice behind Recipe This. She plans, creates, photos, and writes the recipes you see on Recipe This. She is also the face of the You Tube videos and the voice behind the podcast.

She is also the office manager, manages the RT team, is the market researcher, the recipe planner, plans new kitchen gadgets to feature and so much more.

She has always been addicted to food and loves nearly all foods. She gets excited about tomatoes on the vine, Binges on avocados, loves the smell of fresh parsnips, her favourite vegetable is broccoli, and she couldn’t think of anything better to do on an evening than watch movies, check out new recipe ideas and eat way too much dark chocolate and Ben & Jerry’s.

She hates mushrooms and is allergic to nuts.

She met her husband Dom when she was just 17 and he was working as a sous chef. They started dating the following January on Burn’s Night and married 3 years later, the weekend before her 21st birthday.


Dom originally trained as a chef in a culinary school apprenticeship in the early 1990’s after leaving school. He started his career with washing up duty at age 14, working his way up to Head Chef standard. He has worked in a variety of restaurants and catering establishments in the beautiful Yorkshire region of England for more than 10 years.

He is now YOUR personal kitchen gadgets chef instead.

He will help you through food hygiene and food safety issues, teach you how to chop up root vegetables and whole chickens. As well as explaining to you how to reheat food safely and how long food is good for.

Dom is also the backbones of Recipe This and ensures everything is running smoothly or as Sam calls him “head of technical”.

You will also find Dom answering your comments on recipes, managing Pinterest accounts, welcoming new members to our Facebook Groups, dealing with ebook download issues, keeping Recipe This fast for you, helping you with technical issues with your kitchen gadgets and much more. He is also behind the lens during our video shoots.

As you can see, he is the Recipe This jack of all trades.

He also loves his food. Enjoys a delicious burger cooked in the air fryer, shares Sam’s love for Ben & Jerry’s and loves to binge on Sam’s lasagne.

They have three recipe testers at RecipeThis.com and to get a recipe on the blog it has to pass by them three first.

There is Kyle. He is almost 20 years old and works part time at Recipe This whilst he is in college. He takes the video clips that Dom & Sam make and turn them into awesome You Tube videos.

He also takes the Recipe This recipe photos and transforms them for Pinterest.

Also, if you have purchased an ebook or course from Recipe This the chances are Kyle edited it and made it for you!

Kyle also loves all the different foods he can try and loves to do his own cooking too. Though he is not so good at the washing up!

Sofia & Jorge. At age 4 and 6 they have grown at the same time Recipe This has grown. They have learnt about cooking with lots of kitchen gadgets. They have fallen in love with instant pot popcorn, bread machine pizza dough, air fryer frozen corn on the cob and many, many others.

They love cooking and you will often find them in the kitchen helping Sam with the latest recipe she is experimenting with. Usually sat on the kitchen worktop, or with their own low table that they can bake from. With them always getting excited about what is next.

Though Jorge at 4, loves cooking the most, and you will find him cooking with his mum, prepping with his own kid friendly kitchen knives, getting excited about recording a video and so much more.

Both Sofia & Jorge love their vegetables, and you will often see them eating a bowl of soup, a casserole, or a stew. They also love it when air fryer baked goods are on the menu!
