Featured Recipe: National Garlic Day

April 19th is one of the savoriest days of the year: National Garlic Day. This pungent member of the lily family has been revered for thousands of years for its medicinal and culinary properties. Garlic lends its inimitable flavor to cuisines around the world, and is often the main ingredient of spice blends. It brings out the natural flavors of meat, such as a flavorful garlic chicken dish.


Featured Recipe: National Cheeseball Day

National Cheeseball Day is April 17th, and is a time to celebrate the beloved American appetizer. A savory cheeseball looks elegant on a holiday table, and just as appropriate for casual appetizers during the big game. Although most cooks have their own version, cheeseballs are usually a blend of cream cheese, diced meat, flavorful herbs, and a layer of shredded cheese or nuts. This is a perfect occasion to make one for your family.

My Personal Food Perspective

My food philosophy is elementary: food should be a feast of all five senses. Preparing meals should be based on simple, tasty, and real recipes that are easy to follow—not intimidating. Instead of serving overly-processed products from the grocery shelves, I prefer to cook meals at home that are delicious and nutritious. I have no tolerance for bland food. My penchant is budget-friendly, flavor-packed menus that are focused on taste and international flare. Since I believe that flavor is the soul of food, I gravitate toward all cuisines that are BIG on flavors. We can all eat healthier and save money by skipping processed ingredients. For me, homemade is always the best!

It's very personal

I take responsibility for all recipe development, testing, website development, and technical support. When I experiment with traditional fare as well as festival dishes, I create a delicious way to learn about new cultures and traditions. I am on a journey to discover more about global cuisines and customs. When you email or contact RecipeSavants, you will be communicating with me personally. Let’s travel this journey of food and culture together—from my kitchen to yours.
