This asparagus egg tart comes together quickly with only 5 simple ingredients, and is perfect for spring and summer gatherings! 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 in a hot second.
If you love homemade ice cream, you need to try this Roasted Strawberries and Clotted Cream Ice Cream. Refreshing and flavorful! 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 the grocery store, I
Avocado Toast with Asparagus and White Beans is both a healthy breakfast or lunch option, and it comes together very quickly! What more can you ask for? Insomnia has plagued me for years. I often struggle to fall asleep (and have tried every solution you could possibly suggest, trust me). There are phases of morning insomnia where I wake up at 4:30am and ultimately get out of bed, knowing it’s a lost cause as my brain races with random, disconnected thoughts. Some nights I never truly fall
Pasta Salad with Asparagus, Asiago and Lemon is a light, seasonal side dish. Serve it at a barbecue or alongside a simple springtime dinner. 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 dressings.
This Sorghum, Orange and Asparagus Salad is perfect as a side dish. It can also be served in larger portions for a healthy, gluten-free, vegetarian meal! I am a collector of cookbooks, and am always looking for new ones to get my hands on. In addition to the recipes and photography, little details always bring my joy: the feel of the paper, the raised texted on the cover, and design elements such as font and color schemes. When Emma Galloway sent me a copy
This Tomato Feta Egg Tart is perfect as an appetizer, side dish, or even for breakfast. It’s beautiful and incredibly delicious. 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 to make changes. Small
This Brandied Cherry Jam is easy and quick to prepare, and it tastes absolutely sinful on biscuits and scones. Perfect for Sunday brunch! 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 post on
This Vanilla Bean Cardamom Strawberry Ice Cream is an incredible combination of flavors. If you love homemade ice cream, you simply must try this recipe! 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
There’s no better way to celebrate strawberry season than with this sweet, decadent 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 I think that’s when I began seriously incorporating strawberries into
You don’t want to miss this recipe for Malted Milk Chocolate Bourbon Ice Cream. It’s a decadent, boozy treat that’s perfect for homemade ice cream lovers. 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
