Thanks for stopping by! Savor + Savvy is all about easy recipes, meal planning and tips and tricks for simplifying your life. This blog was started in 2013 and I have been sharing my ideas here ever since! Initially, the blog was called Frugality Gal and over the years my passion for sharing tasty recipes took center stage and I rebranded to Savor + Savvy, which I feel represents what the blog is about more clearly.
Hello! Welcome to our little home on here at Savor and Savvy! Right here is where we offer you simple, easy, and yummy recipes with a meal prep focus. I show you all the tips and tricks I have used over the years to keep my family from eating out all the time. As a former working-out-of-the-home mom turned stay-at-home mom, I feel both sides and have you covered!
Our lives are crazy busy, just like yours…I used to joke that I would run two shifts in my house. The first shift was when we got up until 3pm – getting everyone to work and school and getting all of the chores done. The second shift was 3pm-10pm when we needed to get from school to multiple activities and somehow get dinner on the table or on the run. Yes, many meals were eaten before swim practice in the car.
All of the crazies lead us to meal prepping on the weekends and freezing as many meals as we could – just to get through the week. So, when I explain about how to meal prep meals, it is because that is what we had to do if we wanted home cooked meals – and we only had ONE kiddo to run around. I’m giving you all the tips and tricks to keep you from eating out every night as well!
We are a fun family of three! We are a retired military family living in Northern Virginia that loves to hike, visit museums, ride bikes, play games and travel hack. My husband and I are learning to be empty nesters this year as our son just went off to college. Wish us luck!
