Keeping The Feast: Book Review

All food, all the time, that’s my motto. These last months have seemed saturated with food, either for the cookbook or the string of birthdays and holidays of late. Cooking magazines have begun to take up residence on the coffee table, hoping to be freed from their plastic shroud before another season slips away. My habit […]

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. […]

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. Months ago a downstairs bedroom flooded after a heavy hailstorm, moving up my room makeover timeline. No big deal squeezing just one or two (or […]

Brunch Muffins

A few weeks ago, I was asked to bring muffins to a baby shower brunch for my dear friend’s daughter.

Buttermilk-Cilantro Skirt Steak -- Tablescape (1 of 1)

Summer Gatherings and Skirt Steak Tacos

Glancing into the backyard all that remained from our barbecue was a full heart and a deck scattered with tables and chairs like a restaurant patio. Few leftovers marked the occasion of friends gathered around tables under a stormy sky. Yes, rain. Ugh. I’m not even sure how many times we hauled cushions back and forth. Finally, […]

Summer Refuge

In May, just about the time everyone was ready to plunk their plants in the ground, we had an awful hail storm. Devastating, in fact, to anyone or any nursery with unprotected plants and Lowe’s was one of them.

Recovered Life and Juiced Greens Recipe
