Month: November 2011
This week I had a fresh pomegranate for the first time. I know that probably sounds crazy but I had only eaten pomegranate flavored things before, never an actual pomegranate. At first, I struggled with peeling it correctly and getting all the good stuff out. Once I had all the seeds out, I could not stop snacking even though I knew I needed them for this recipe! I found this recipe from Clean Eating magazine on the Kahakai Kitchen blog.
I am so excited for today! Today is the beginning to a great new tradition on Savour the Senses, Featured Foodie Friday. Each week I will feature a recipe from a fellow food blogger. I am hoping that this new tradition will help you find lots more food blogs to follow! To kick off our tradition, I have Ali from Quarter Life Crisis. Ali is much like me, a twenty-something girl trying to figure out what she is doing with her life and loving every minute of it! Her recipe is definitely a winner for the winter holidays coming up! With that said, I bring you Ali:

Every so often I reminisce of my childhood eating habits and laugh. I used to be the pickiest eater. I only liked fruit, meat, peas, corn and potatoes. I would never try things and was always skeptical. In the last two years, I have grown to like almost every food and now am always eager to try new things. One of my newest obsessions is hummus. I had hummus for the first time last spring, made it for the first time this fall and am now addicted.
Once again, it is time for the Secret Recipe Club reveal day! This month I had Ellie from The Bitchin’ Kitchen. She had a bunch of delicious recipes. She is a food blogger from Hoboken, NJ. I am still planning on making her Jalapeno Popper Cupcakes!
Being a food blogger is great. I get to share my delicious recipes with all of you great people, plus I have them all stored in one handy place. I also get to participate in cool things like the Driscoll’s berry twitter event and Secret Recipe Club. On top of all that, I get to look at other food blogs constantly, all filled with AWESOME recipes. I have a notepad on my desktop that has been filling up with links to recipes that I “must” make. It is hard trying to think up your own original recipes sometimes when you are surrounded by so many other delicious ones! I have been on a spree lately making all sorts of things from other bloggers. This specific recipe is from one of my favorite blogs, Taste With the Eyes. She has complex recipes with awesome food photography.
Last weekend, I finally went snowboarding for the first time in SEVEN MONTHS! It got me thinking, has it really been seven months since I left for Africa? On top of that it has already been over a month since I left for Italy! It is kind of scary how fast my last semester of college is going. It is a bit bittersweet though, I can’t believe I am graduating, but so excited to move to Hawaii for eight months! I am still looking for a job, but hopefully will find one before I go! I know I promised to share a few recipes from my Italy trip, so here is the first one. Easy, but one of my favorites.
While eating breakfast recently, I thought to myself, “Why have I not shared this on my blog?!” This may not be a super original recipe, but it is just too delicious not to share. For breakfast, I usually end up making extravagant bagel sandwiches. I love soft boiled eggs; with them, you get the delicious whites of hard boiled eggs, but the nice runny yolk of a sunny side up. I also like that I don’t need a fat to cook them in.
Thanks Mom for sharing this with me! Cooking well means… You will never go hungry. You might be labeled a “foodie”. The kitchen is your studio and food is your medium. You’ll always find the way to a man’s (or woman’s) heart. You can see beauty in a potato. Going to market is your ideaRead More
