These Dark Chocolate Chunk Rumchata Cookies are seriously amazing. People will beg you for the recipe!

I should make it clear right up front that this recipe is in no way sponsored or endorsed by Rumchata. I just really like the stuff and it’s not the first time I’ve used it in a recipe. What can I say, I love adding booze to dessert. I’ve previously used Bailey’s Irish Cream, Kalua, Chambord… it just adds such a tasty, fun element to my recipes. And it’s always a crowd pleaser. Walk into a room and say “Who wants boozy cookies?” The response is typically positive. [Read more...]

These No-Bake Toasted Coconut Bars are paleo, vegan, gluten-free and beyond delicious.

I’m guest posting for Food52 today. They asked me if I’d be willing to prepare a homemade version of Larabars, something I’ve always wanted to try. While I often find the ingredient lists appealing, homemade snack bars are almost always too sweet for me. The beauty of making them at home? I control that sweetness.   [Read more...]

This Baked Chai Spiced French Toast can be prepared the night before and will keep you warm during those chilly winter months! #onthego #breakfast #makeahead

I tend to go for simple recipes first thing in the morning. Smoothies, muesli, maybe some eggs and bacon. And In January I’m less inclined to go the smoothie route because, well, I’m freezing all the time. Seriously, All. The. Time.  [Read more...]

Tales of a Sugar Addict + a Suja Juice #Giveaway

I consider myself to be incredibly lucky. I get to work from home and do what I love more than anything else- create recipes, photograph them and write about them. But no job is perfect and transitioning into the food industry has not been without it’s problems. Before attending culinary school I was never a desserts girl. I would take an appetizer or salty snack over sugar any day. Heck, I even named this blog Savory Simple. But something happened while I was at school. Every single day for six months we created a 3-course gourmet meal; an appetizer, an entree and a dessert. And every single day we ate the food we made for lunch. Baking desserts became a source of comfort for me in a chaotic, stressful environment. I loved the science, I loved the process and I grew to really love eating the results, so much that sometimes I would skip the main course and go straight to dessert. Fast forward several years in the industry and there’s no getting around the truth; I have a sugar addiction.  [Read more...]

Chai Spiced Pistachio Snowdrop Cookies will add an exotic twist to your holiday parties!

What a strange, surreal, and freakish winter it has been so far. In less than one week Jeff and I are headed to Tucson, AZ for Christmas with his family and I cannot wait to get out of town. I feel distracted and unsettled. I’m tired. I’m also craving normalcy and my old routine and I know I might not get back there until the beginning of next year. It’s ok, though. Things are definitely moving in the right direction. And I’m looking forward to visiting with family and eating some quality Mexican food (something DC sadly lacks). [Read more...]
