Asparagus Egg Tart

A simple puff pastry tart is one of my favorite ways to highlight ingredients. The subtle buttery flavor and pleasant flaky texture of puff is a great way to showcase vegetables, fruits, and cheeses as well as heartier ingredients like eggs and meats. Best of all: it’s widely available, easy to work with, and bakes up

Roasted Strawberries and Clotted Cream Ice Cream

Strawberries and cream are a perfect combination. Think about it. On one side you have fresh, sweet, fragrant, vibrant, juicy berries. Contrast that against the rich, buttery, milky sweetness of cream. What a dynamic! Put these two ingredients together and you’ve got the building blocks for endless dessert creations. When I recently saw clotted cream at

Pasta Salad with Asparagus, Asiago and Lemon

I find a lot of pasta salads to be overly heavy for my taste. Pasta is already heavy enough on its own, you know? Adding things like Italian dressing or mayonnaise don’t have much appeal to me. I do, however, enjoy serving up simple pasta salads such as this one, with lemon and olive oil-based

Wild Blueberry Curd Ice Cream

I think it’s possible I went all last year without making homemade ice cream or curd recipes for the blog. These are two of my favorite things, and it tells me how burnt out I had become. Therein lies one of the main dangers of turning a hobby into a career. Writing a book zapped all of my mojo,

I mentioned recently how food waste has been weighing heavily on my mind. The fact that more than one-third of all food produced globally is wasted or spoiled, while there are people down the road from me living in food deserts who can’t afford to put a meal on the table is insane. INSANE. It’s been causing me

Brandied Cherry Jam

Between travel and cookbook edits, my life is feeling scattered and rushed at the moment. I’m not posting new content as frequently as I’d like. I actually prepared and photographed numerous recipes before heading off for my recent trip to Europe. I just haven’t posted them. I’ve never shared the mindset of some of my fellow bloggers, who feel it’s important to

Vanilla Bean Cardamom Strawberry Ice Cream

It’s always quite difficult to adjust back to reality after an extended vacation. I just returned from a two week trip around the Mediterranean, and I am not ready for the real world yet. I do have an ice cream recipe to share, though! Many travel posts are forthcoming; I just have to whittle down

Strawberry Pie

Every time I visit the west coast, I’m completely enamored. The weather (especially the lack of humidity), the beaches, the year-round access to fabulous produce… I could go on, but I’m pretty sure I’ve rambled about this more than once before. Several years ago, California Strawberries sent me to visit some of their farms, and

Malted Milk Chocolate Bourbon Ice Cream

Savory Simple has gotten a makeover! I’ve been on a blogging hiatus for the past few weeks so I could focus on fine tuning the new design. I hope you all love it as much as I do. Homemade ice cream is one of my absolute favorite things to prepare, and I can think of
