About Me

Hi! My name is Amy and welcome to my blog! My interest in food sparked in 2004 when I traveled to Thailand. Before that, I was oblivious to the world of tastes and foods that were out there. I'm not a food expert by any means...just a woman in her 30s that enjoys eating and cooking new things. In my day time hours, I used to work in aquatic ecosystem restoration and science, but with infant twins we decided I would stay home with them for a while. I live in western NY with my wonderful husband, our adorable boy/girl twins, our feisty kitty, and our cute cockatiel. 

I started this blog as a way to document my recipes and share them with family and friends. I also wanted to document my own growth and progress over time to better cooking and healthier eating. I want to encourage others to eat local, eat healthy, eat seasonally when possible, but also to enjoy food, cooking, and food culture. I am very interested in trying new foods and learning to cook cuisine from around the world like Southeast Asia, Mexico, Germany, and more. I love pizza, olives, coffee, tea, whiskey, winter squash, and apples. I'm learning to ferment, forage, can, bake, and eat well frugally. 

I appreciate and enjoy any comments that I receive. Please feel free to browse around and let me know what you think. You may also contact me at savorymomentsblog at gmail dot com. 

Thank you and enjoy!
