Hello everyone! Welcome back, can you believe it is 2013?! This is the first year that I have decided NOT to make a resolution. My mom was talking about New Years Resolutions and it made me realize how often (for the most part) our own resolutions fade away each year. Last year my New Years resolution was to quit consuming so much processed sugar; I forgot about that one in a matter of months. I still try to consume as few GMOs as possible, but it is hard to not consume sugar when you are a culinary student who is also working during the day most of the time. So this year my “resolution”, if you want to call it that, is that this year is the first year of the rest of my life and it is going to be the most epic year yet. I graduate culinary school and will travel the world and discover where I belong, as well as start my career in the field of my dreams, as a chef!
Most of the time I look for exciting and unique recipes to share with you all, but sometimes I realize that it is important to bring it back to the basics. I forget to share my tricks of the trade with my readers, which has made me add a new component to Savour the Senses. I am going to begin doing how-to posts occasionally for simple techniques that not everybody may know about.
School is finally over, the snow have been falling, and I have been having a blast snowboarding and hanging out, but with all of that I haven’t had much time to cook. I have had a secret project brewing in my fridge for the past two weeks though… homemade pickles. My mom made homemade pickles and I decided I would try her recipe since hers tasted so good! This recipe is super simple and makes the pickles way healthier, since you won’t have all of the preservatives and such. Give it a try!
