It is finally beginning to feel like summer in the mountains! My heirloom tomato plants have little baby tomatoes finally and the rest of my plants are growing like crazy. I can’t wait to be able to put them outside and plant my outdoor garden. We’ve also been getting awesome organic boxes from Door to Door Organics, filled with delicious fruits and vegetables- perfect for juicing materials.
In Colorado, “April showers brings May flowers” means next to nothing. They have been getting feet of snow then 80 degree weather this month! In NYC the saying is pretty accurate. Springtime in the city really does feel like spring. The trees here are so pretty with beautiful blooming flowers!
Can you believe that it is almost Christmas?! What are your plans for the holidays? I will be spending Christmas in Denver with parents, brothers and a few other relatives. I am really excited about this Christmas because I hardly get to see my brothers any more, plus I will be moving far, far away in exactly two weeks from today. I hope that the holidays haven’t stressed you out, but if you are panicking about what you are going to cook for dinner with your family this guest post is perfect for you. I would like to welcome Denise from Dinner With Denise this friday. She is sharing one of her delicious side dishes for the holidays. This is a great alternative to the typical sweet potatoes and marshmallows if you feel like you always serve that dish during the holidays. With that, I give you Denise:

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:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehowRead More
When I first began blogging, I didn’t really know what I would put on my blog or where it would take me. Actually, I was forced (well maybe required is a better word) to make a blog for my advertising media class last fall and figured I love food, music, photos, etc. so why not focus on my senses. Almost a year later I am at a point that I would have never imagined. I am completely submerged in the blogging universe and loving it! When I tell people that I am a blogger they are always a little uneasy, but then when I tell them I am a FOOD blogger they always seem so intrigued. I am so excited about all of the opportunities I have been given because of my blog, although I must say that the next few weeks are kind of filled with different blogging opportunites, I hope you enjoy them too!
It really doesn’t get much better than eating a cool, creamy tart with juicy fresh fruit on a hot summer evening. A few friends and I had a delicious bison barbeque this past week. We had one dish after another until we could hardly eat anymore… but then came the dessert. Consumption of this dessert took place around my kitchen counter with moaning, mmm’s and oh my god’s coming from stuffed faces.
There is something peculiar about combining sweet and salty flavors. I used to find my self being skeptical about pairing strange flavors, but recently they have really begun to intrigue me. Pork and apples is an old favorite combination of sweet and salty that never has seemed to bother me, probably because it is so common. Today, I find myself trying to find more unique combinations, but this is one recipe that will definitely still stay in the back of my head.
This recipe is great to serve when you have guests. The shallots give the sauteed apples a unique salty kick which pairs perfectly with a tasty slice of spiced pork tenderloin. A nice scoop of garlic mashed potatoes serves as a great side for this dish.
