Summer Recipe Roundup

IMG_4890

It’s the summer solstice! The longest day of the year! The official first day of summer, which, by some magic, is also Midsummer. No matter how you slice it, today is the day when even your most pedantic friends can’t deny that summertime is here, and with it, summer cooking. We’ve already been going crazy with the stone fruit in our house (my children are fruit bats, and I keep finding half-gnawed nectarines in the oddest places) and last week I broke out the first official BLT.

Here’s a list of great Savour Fare recipes to get you in the mood for cooking this summer!

Pi Day Pie Round Up

Pi Day Collage

It’s Pi Day!  That happy day when bakers and nerds collide!  Fun facts about Pi:

1) Pi is a number with an infinite, nonrepeating number of decimal places.  The first few are 3.1415926535 (which is why, incidentally, March 14, or 3.14 is known as “Pi Day” amongst a small, geeky subset of the population.  And food bloggers.)

2)  The circumference of a circle is calculated by multiplying the radius (halfway across the circle) by 2 and pi (2*pi*r).  Coincidentally, pies are circles, and 2 pie are better than one!

3) The area of a circle is calculated by multiplying the radius by itself and pie, (pi*r squared).  However, we know that in reality, pie are round.  (Except for slab pies).

OK, enough with the corny pie pi jokes.  Pi is cool, and Pie is cool.  Below are a roundup of pies we’ve made at Savour Fare.  Go bake a pie! It’s Pi Day!

175* Recipes to Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

Romanesco
It’s three weeks into January.  How are your new year’s resolutions going?

I’m making a concerted effort to cut down on sweet and starchy things in my diet.  I know I have a crazy sweet tooth, and I’d love to get the best of that, so there have been lots of protein and vegetables in my life.  The good news is that, after a week or so, the sweet stuff seems a little less tempting. There are some days when I think I might kill someone for a brownie, though.

Chances are, you are reaching that point where everything doesn’t seem new and fresh any more, and you’re looking for some inspiration.  Well, you’ve come to the right place! Below is a list of Savour Fare recipes that should provide some new resources and inspiration, whatever your resolution!

Fourth of July Summer Recipe Round Up

Even more perfect -- Pounders beach

Happy summertime!  It has been hot hot hot here – too hot to do much of anything besides lie around on the couch complaining about the heat.  I decided we needed to get the kids out of the house Saturday, so we made a trip to the library and then discovered a local ice cream parlor that  makes its own fresh fruit frozen yogurt.  I also discovered the joys of raspados – shaved ice layered with fresh fruits and condensed milk – SO refreshing on a hot day!  It’s fortunately cooling down going into the fourth of July, so we’ll be able to get our celebration on!  If you’re planning for parties this week or next weekend, here are some of my favorite summer recipes to share!

Five No-Fuss, No-Pasta Dinners For When You Don’t Really Want to Cook

dinners

 

So if you listen to as many food-related podcasts as I do, you may have noticed that lately there has been a lot of talk about cooking (I blame Michael Pollan)- about how it’s healthier, and better for society, and connects you with your humanity, etc.  Which, hello? is great, and I’ve been saying for years! Yay cooking! We love it around these parts. I also, however, like to play the role of fairy godmother of the reality check. You know and I know that we would LOVE to make from-scratch, healthful dinners EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, but we also both know that sometimes that just isn’t happening. Before you call the delivery man, or open (yet another) box of pasta, I present you for five ideas for easy, quick, no-fuss dinners. They don’t require NO cooking, but they do require MINIMAL fuss and no thought whatsoever. I usually plan to have ingredients for at least one of these in the house at any given time, to account for traffic jams, late meetings, and general exhaustion.
