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. […]

It would seem there is a longing for spring, unlike any other season. Not necessarily everyone’s favorite if asked, but for those weary of winter, every peek of green inspires hope. The first kiss of sun’s warmth on cheeks, new song on bird’s beak, cheerful daffodils—it is absolutely glorious! In our yard, the Iris and tulips break […]

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 […]

14 Healthy Super Bowl Party Recipes

The Super Bowl seems to arrive just in time to extinguish the best of New Year intentions to “get serious about getting healthy.” I already planned to highlight healthy food choices for this round-up, but wasn’t sure if people would be looking to finish a healthier party with more decadent deserts. So I polled a […]

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.

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.

Roast Beef & Vegetable Soup: Using Pot Roast Leftovers

Is it winter where you are? If so, you’re probably in the mood for soup. Hearty soup. The kind that when the spoon drops to the bottom of the empty bowl, you are warmed through and satisfied all the way down to your toes. I’m talking a complete dinner in one bowl. Roast Beef & […]

Tuscan Roasted Broccoli: Thanksgiving (or Anytime) Side Dish

Throughout the year I try new side dishes looking for the “wow” factor, something worthy of adding to our Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, homemade egg noodles, mashed potatoes, gravy, dinner rolls, and pumpkin dream pie are sacrosanct, but when it comes to the vegetable sides, I can slip in something new. Friends brought a version of […]

I am a sucker for goat cheese. When glancing at a menu or scouring recipes goat cheese always catches my eye. Is that why you’re here? I’ve had versions of this salad at several restaurants (order it every chance I get) and the two things that always make it work are the beets and the […]

Blue Cheese Burgers & Grilled Corn on the Cob: Easy Summer Meals

Summer means different things to different people. For some, it’s time to head to sandy beaches, for others, the mountains call for epic hikes. Gardeners are either trying to survive drought or torrential rain, or in our case here in Colorado, the threat of hail. If summer has a sound it would be a mix of […]
