Cardamom Horchata ~ Savory Simple

Every Christmas (with the exception of last year) Jeff and I travel to Tucson, Arizona for the holidays. Most of his immediate family lives there and over the past 6 1/2 years I have really grown to love Tucson like it’s my second home. Spending time there in December means I can slip back into my Spring/Fall wardrobe and enjoy used bookstores, funky coffee shops, family time and copious amounts of authentic Mexican food.

It was in Tucson that I first tried horchata. [Read more...]

Is it a smoothie? A milkshake? A frozen summer cocktail? I like to think of it as a hybrid of all three. [Read more...]

Raw Chocolate Smoothie - Savory Simple - www.savorysimple.net
I love smoothies. Like, really really love them. They’re a great breakfast on the run, a snack, a way to use up fruit and also… a great way to take care of a sweet craving. I’ve developed a knack for making healthy smoothies that basically taste like dessert. This raw chocolate smoothie is a total lifesaver when those night time cravings sneak up. [Read more...]

When Erin from Dinners, Dishes and Desserts asked me to guest post for her while she travels through Japan I immediately agreed. Just being able to talk to someone else about Japan was so exciting. Jeff and I spent 3 weeks there in 2009 and I’ve had daydreams about going back ever since. I had no idea how much I’d fall in love with everything- the culture, the scenery, the food (of course)… we spent time in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Hiroshima. We had dinner and drinks at The Park Hyatt where Lost in Translation was filmed. We stood on top of Mt. Fuji and wandered the endless underground malls between subway stations. We sample kobe in Kobe. If you’ll indulge me, I’d love to share some photos from our trip. [Read more...]

Tell me your life in 15 songs- Part Two (read Part One)

The main reason I split this into more than one post was because I had to prepare myself to share the next songs. I hate to sound melodramatic but it kind of freaks me out to tell these stories. People can be very judgmental and I’m not great at putting it all out there. Like I said in my last post, I didn’t even intend to share these stories when I began compiling my favorite songs. I just began writing and it happened. I almost hit delete so many times but I’m rolling with it. In its own way this is cathartic.
