It’s the beginning of a new year and many of us are trying to clean up our diets and focus on healthy foods. So when I saw Sue Quinn’s book on “Super Foods Every Day” I could not resist. Her book begins by discussing exactly what a superfood is and notes that some food manufactures have exploited the facts. She then devised her own rating system adding foods that are high in vitamins, phytochemicals and other nutrients that are associated with good health. The book’s chapters start off with breakfast and end with sweet treats. Each recipe notes the nutrient information, time to prepare and amount of servings. The ingredients themselves are simple and fresh and loaded with tons of flavor.
When I first received the book I was a little surprised as it was so small, but then again sometimes the best things in life come in small packages. Since I live in the southwest and we have fresh citrus at our disposal I started off with the Spiced Citrus recipe located in the last chapter. Grapefruit and orange segments were drizzled with the juice from the fruit, sugar, butter and allspice that was reduced to a syrup and topped with topped with cinnamon and honey spiced yogurt and pecans. Both my husband and I thought it was the most delicious and satisfying sweet treat we have ever had. This cookbook is a keeper and will be kept front and center in my kitchen. You will not be disappointed.

Cheri Savory Spoon
Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
