Chipotle Bourbon Barbecue Pulled Pork Sliders ~ Savory Simple

Do you have any guilty pleasures television shows? I don’t watch nearly as much tv as I used to but there are one or two shows that I’m embarrassed to admit I love. I guess it’s time for me to come clean (well, at least about one). [Read more...]

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? Before I left my day job to join this crazy world of food, I used to be quite the international traveler. I can’t lie, I miss it terribly. [Read more...]

Tonight I’m volunteering at Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation in Washington DC. I attended last year and it’s a great event for an important cause. Taste of the Nation will bring together the city’s best chefs, restaurants and mixologists to raise funds to help ensure no child goes hungry. When Nicole Gulotta from The Giving Table contacted me about donating today’s post to the issue of hunger in America it was a no-brainer. I worked with The Giving Table last year as part of Food Bloggers For Slave Free Tomatoes. We have a unique platform for addressing food-related issues and I think we have a responsibility to do what we can.

Pasta with Cashew Truffle Cream Sauce ~ Savory Simple ~ www.savorysimple.netPasta with Cashew Truffle Cream Sauce

I’ve always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with dairy. When I was younger I had chronic stomach issues and was diagnosed as being lactose intolerant.

Cold Sesame Soba Noodles ~ Savory Simple ~ www.savorysimple.netCold Sesame Soba Noodles

I’m kind of a nostalgia junkie. I love visiting sites such as this one and enjoying small trips down memory lane. I get this strange feeling in my chest when I see something I’d completely forgotten about. It’s hard to describe the feeling… a jolt? A rush of joy mixed with a touch of longing and a dash of sadness? I always find forgotten memories slightly sad. What else am I forgetting? Regardless, I love the feeling. A single image can bring back so many associated memories. A glimpse of an old toy will take me back to the room where I played with it. 30 years may have passed since I’ve tasted a particular candy but I remember exactly how it tasted the moment I see it. It’s amazing how our minds work, isn’t it?

I don’t live terribly far from my first childhood home. My parents still reside in the house where I lived from age 9 until college so I visit it regularly. But that first house… I want to peek inside so badly and see how it looks 25 years later. Sometimes when I’m in the neighborhood I’ll drive past it. There’s a tot lot right behind the house. I haven’t been there in years but there have been days when I’ve sat on the swings at the tot lot, marveling at the short distance between the playground and my old backyard. It’s a small hill, but when I was little it was like running the length of a football field. At the end of the football field was a massive weeping willow tree that I used to hide under. The tree is still there. [Read more...]
