Goat Cheese and Chive Biscuits ~ Savory Simple ~ www.savorysimple.net

Last year we moved into our first house. It was wonderful, scary and exhausting all at the same time. After living in apartments for years, I found myself so excited about finally having an outdoor deck. This meant many things to me; natural light photography, being able to grill and for the first time ever, the ability to grow herbs and vegetables.  [Read more...]

Brown Sugar Bacon Brussels Sprouts - Savory Simple - www.savorysimple.net

Brussels sprouts. We need to talk. My poor, neglected vegetable friend. Don’t listen to what others say about you sometimes. They just don’t understand what it’s like to be you. You’re unique and delicate. You should only be prepared in certain ways and sadly… there are many home cooks out there who don’t understand your special needs. People have been cooking you incorrectly for generations. [Read more...]

Cheesy Broccoli Bacon Quiche

My recipe project is starting to wind down and I’m so relieved. Relieved and exhausted. I have been cooking for fun a bit more and have some great recipes lined up (hint: I’ve been on a homemade pasta kick). In the meantime, I have just a few more guest posts for you to enjoy while I continue to get caught up on life. Please give a warm welcome to Joanne from Fifteen Spatulas! She’s brought us a fabulous cheesy broccoli bacon quiche. Joanne and I are online friends who will soon be “real world” friends once we attend Eat Write Retreat in May. I can’t wait! 

Hi friends! I’m Joanne from Fifteen Spatulas, and it’s my job today to tempt you with something delicious and show you how to make it. One dish everyone should know how to make is a simple quiche-style tart. The best part about a quiche or tart is that it’s a good way to use up leftovers in your fridge and turn it into something new and exciting.

I find my fridge often loaded with too many vegetables. You see, I go to the grocery store trying to be good and healthy by buying tons of fresh produce, but sometimes I end up with too much of something. This week for me it was too much broccoli, but by all means, you could make this tart with asparagus, tomatoes, zucchini, kale, and so on. Use your leftover veggies in a tart and serve it with a little salad for a great lunch.

Valentine's Day Recipe Roundup - @SavorySimple


I never considered Valentine’s Day to be the most romantic of holidays when I was younger.  You see, February 14th happens to be both my mother and my brother’s birthday.  Now that I’m no longer living with my parents and am, you know, married, I like to do something small to celebrate the holiday aside from calling my family.  Maybe it’s a romantic dinner for two at home, maybe we go out, maybe Jeff (cough cough) brings me some flowers.

This year we’re dining in and I’ve compiled a Valentine’s Day Recipe Roundup with over 60 options for your entire meal.  Enjoy!

Corn Dog Mini Muffins

Ok, who’s ready for the Super Bowl?  I’m not gonna lie… I’m not really a big football fan.  However, I am thrilled that The Ravens will be playing!  I lived in Baltimore for 10 years and it will always be my home in some ways.  The city takes a lot of flack from the media but it truly is a great, quirky town with a lot going for it.  Mr. Savory is a huge Ravens fan and I will be watching the game with him, cheering for purple all the way.  We’re going to a party and I will be bringing these scrumptious corn dog mini muffins from my dear friend, Chung-Ah. She writes the fantastic, mouth-watering blog Damn Delicious. Might I take a moment to tell you all how wonderful this gal is?  We met in person late last year and instantly clicked.  She’s my favorite gossip buddy and she always makes me laugh.  She’s a West Coast girl and I’m an East Coast girl but thanks to the internet it’s like we’re constantly chatting away in the same room. Please go visit her blog and say hello!
