Stack's Snack: Gets an Air Fryer Becomes a Fancy Snack Gal
As stated in last the blog… I absolutely have to cool it with the cheese.
FRIENDS. I got an air fryer for Christmas (thank you to Massachusetts Santa). What an exciting time in the Goodwin household. Let me tell you - steelhead trout in the air fryer is THE MOVE.
Anywho, we have really elevated the snack game. On today’s episode of what’s Katie snackin’ on… sweet potato fries in the air frier. Cut up those potatoes real thin, spice the heck out of them, and get yourself a good dip! Today we are featuring Annette’s (hi mom!) fancy creamy horseradish dipping sauce.
Is this a food blog now?! Should I be taking photos of me eating these snacks?

Did ya miss it? Do you want to sign up? The next box is coming up in April. Just looking for one box to try it out? That is an option too. Select one time purchase instead of subscription while you are ordering :)
Snackable Story: Cool Rebrand but Why?
Remember when I called my company Stack Creative? Me too. The change was only a few months ago. Stack - this part comes from my dad and calling me ‘Short Stack’ and Creative - this part comes from being creative. 10/10 explanation.
Popular question: Why did you change your name?
When I started the company I was doing freelance design work, logo design, product packaging, wedding invites, party/shower invites, greeting cards, custom stationery, pet illustrations, house illustrations… I mean really all the things…. Oh yeah, and I had a job. So this whole gig was a side hustle situation and I really didn’t have a main focus. It was more of a ‘I like shapes and colors and making things’ and the name fit for that.
When I got my big girl letterpress and a fresh set of rollers I realized - hey, I just like designing things I like and then printing them. I was ready to make the leap into Stack - the letterpress paper goods gal.
In hindsight… yeah, you are right. That would have been an excellent time to change my name to Stack Paper Press. So why didn’t I? Well, rebranding takes a lot of time and effort and it’s scary to change your name. So, I waited until I really felt like I was in a good place to switch it up to Stack Paper Press. I’m kidding. I contemplated the idea. Kept postponing. Then I talked to my sister and said I wanted to do it and she said I should do it and so I did it….immediately. Sometimes you just need a push.
Moral of the story: do everything your big sister says. KIDDING.
Moral of the story: change is hard. Feeling stuck is harder. Just make the change and see what happens.
