I’m Julia, the voice and creator behind Savory Tooth. I currently live in California, which has been my home for the past 3 years. I typically prefer savory foods over sweet, so I named this site Savory Tooth, as a play on the phrase sweet tooth.
I founded this website in 2015, and it became my full-time job in 2016. I started this site because I wanted to develop my interest in photography as well as document my foray into cooking. Savory Tooth quickly grew into a popular site with hundreds of recipes and over 1 million people visiting each month.
My goal is to share simple and tasty recipes, mostly low carb. I’m a scientist by training, and reading peer-reviewed nutrition journals led me to a low carb lifestyle. I also have reactive hypoglycemia, and minimizing my carb intake has helped stabilize my blood glucose levels.
I prioritize readers’ user experience by having an easy-to-navigate layout with few distractions. Ads are kept to a minimum, and there are no pop-ups or auto-playing videos. Recipe ingredients and instructions are at the top of every post, followed by photos and cooking tips.
What I Do
I extensively test each recipe — sometimes more than 10 times — to make the dish as delicious as possible without over-complicating it. I eat everything I make, and the food on this site represents my personal taste.
The rest of my time is spent on writing recipe posts, photography, promoting my recipes, answering website comments, and performing backend technical work to keep the website running smoothly. All of the content on this site is developed and written by me.
