Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts

Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts | PDXfoodlove

A funny thing happened when I went to edit photos for yesterday’s post, the Vanilla Pear Muffins. I knew that was the recipe I wanted to do today, and I opened a big group of images to see them at the same time… and realized I had forgotten all about these: How? I have no […]

Cocoa Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

Cocoa Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake | PDXfoodlove

Good morning. It’s still morning, right? Just barely. I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. We managed to make ours crazy busy (but fun!) We’ve been to parties, tried out a new restaurant (La Taq on Killingsworth – we liked it! Portland needs more Tex Mex), we went to an amazing Gnocchi 101 class […]

Homemade Twinkies

This recipe began with a Christmas gift. Dave gave me both a “twinkie” pan and a frosting injector – what a fun present! I put it to use to take a sweet treat over to our friends’ house for a day of watching football. It was the same day we made those yummy soft pretzels […]

Cranberry Streusel Coffee Cake

Cranberry Streusel Coffee Cake | PDXfoodlove

Well, I think all of the presents are wrapped that aren’t going out of state. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s much to do (and much fun to be had) before we can take a break for the holidays. I’m a little worried about keeping everything straight. If only I could […]

Perfect Pumpkin Bread

So, at what point can we officially call it “the holidays?” This weekend Dave and I definitely started prepping for them. We got some homemade eggnog started and now it’s aging in the fridge. We also started some homemade vanilla extract (yes, I did make a big trip to the liquor store. The population of […]

Chocolate Ricotta Donuts

Usually I try to start these posts off with a life/me update. However, today I don’t have anything to say that is more important than these donuts. These might be my favorite donuts that I’ve ever made, ever. And we’ve made quite a few donuts in our day. Normally baked donuts taste kind of like […]

Bourbon Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Bourbon Chocolate Zucchini Bread

What’s that? You still have an excess zucchini problem? It seems like even one zucchini plant will make more than a family with kids could eat. A few weeks ago, when walking down a street in our neighborhood, we encountered a pile of zucchini in front of a house. Next to it was a note […]

White Cake with Fresh Strawberry Buttercream

White Cake with Fresh Strawberry Buttercream

I love making cakes! Especially old-school cakes. And especially birthday cakes, so I can make them a little fancy. So when it was Maxine’s birthday right before she came to stay with us, I jumped at Dave’s suggestion to make her a birthday cake. Maxine let us know that strawberry is one of her favorite […]

Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes

Happy Monday, everyone. It has been a fun and busy weekend. I’ve been away having a girly weekend with my friend Callie. I also got to see the Timbers play Sunday night! It was a last minute plan and there was rain, but I’m so glad that I went. It’s fun to see the Timbers […]

Donut Muffins

Donut Muffins

I don’t know about you all, but it seems like the weekend is already a year in the past. We worked so hard to prime the entire upstairs for painting and start sanding the floors! It was probably 30 man/woman-hours altogether and between the two of us. We did not go to the gym. We […]
