Pear & Goat Cheese Appetizer: Easy and Elegant

It was Valentine’s Day, and instead of wrangling a reservation in a cramped restaurant we spent time planning a menu, shopping, and cooking together. We were in search of fresh figs for our appetizer which were woefully out of season. It’s hard to beat the enchantment of figs for indulging in simple pleasures. But alas, there were no figs. […]

Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Lately, I’ve been cooking like my hair is on fire. I have a self-imposed deadline of March 31 to finish writing my first cookbook, even if it kills me. (If you don’t hear from me in April, that’s why.) In the midst of proofing recipes for the book, a friend was looking for ways to replace or […]

In My Kitchen ~ March 2015

In my kitchen … is the window over my sink, telling the story of each season. As the snow began to melt from the roof, the icicles crept into view, glistening as the evening sun casts long shadows over the yard. You can see the cobalt blue bird bath we placed beneath the birdhouses.

Meatloaf with Sweet-Spicy Glaze - Savoring Today (1 of 1)

Meatloaf with Sweetly-Spiced Glaze: Comfort is King

Growing up, meatloaf wasn’t the comfort food it is for me today. It was more like dreaded food because the massive chunks of onion were never pleasant for a kid who hated onions (mostly because of the texture).

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Roasted Garlic Aioli - Savoring Today (1 of 1)

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Roasted Garlic Aioli

According to food trend gurus, Brussels sprouts are on the rise. Considering these little cabbage buds fall just behind a visit to the dentist on the least favorite list, there’s little fear of world domination. Food trend predictions remind me of the movie The Devil Wears Prada, when Miranda educates Andy about the independent choice she thought she […]

Meat Lover’s Zucchini Lasagna: Low-Carb Heaven

Oh, the cheese—that golden brown, melted goodness laminating the saucy, meaty, vegetable pan of comfort and joy. Vegetable? Wait, no pasta? Nope. Not a pasta dish, it’s Zucchini Lasagna, the meat lover’s version. So you’ve spent the last hour (or more) making a pan of lasagna, and now you realize you should probably toss a salad. […]

The bed was the key. It was easy to pull the rest of it together once we found this beauty.

And So It Goes … A Room Makeover: Happy New Year!

A friend was starting to wonder about me around the holidays because they hadn’t seen many posts on Savoring Today. Don’t worry, I’m still here and quite busy with life.
