Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies | PDXfoodlove

We were watching an old episode of Good Eats the other day, and it was about oatmeal. How healthy it is, what you can do with it besides just eat it as oatmeal (bread; cookies), and such. But I had forgotten about how it included one of my favorite tenets of Alton Brownism: RAISINS ARE […]

Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers

Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers | PDXfoodlove

Whoever decided that graham crackers were “crackers” was playing fast and loose with the term… there is almost nothing that grahams have in common with saltines and Ritz and the like. They are straight up cookies. Just a little less sweet than the traditional ones, and a different shape. They become even less like crackers […]

The New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

The New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe | PDXfoodlove

PSST! Have you entered my sweet Bob’s Red Mill GIVEAWAY yet? Check it out here! I have always loved making cookies, but for some reason lately, mine keep coming out flat. Maybe it’s because I don’t chill them long enough. Maybe it’s the silpat vs. parchment paper thing (don’t worry, I switched back to parchment). […]

Chocolate Dipped Macaroons | PDXfoodlove

Happy Sunday night/Monday, ya’ll. As you can see, this is not a Cocktail Diaries post. Sunday morning I had a small medical episode, and now I am on some medication that is not supposed to be mixed with alcohol. Booo 🙂 but yay to feeling much better. This weekend I had a pretty big asthma […]

So-Easy Salted Shortbread

So Easy Salted Shortbread | PDXfoodlove

I have been traveling quite a bit for work lately, and one night I got in to the PDX airport and Dave was there to pick me up. It was almost midnight. I had eaten not-great food for dinner while at an airport that unfortunately only had Pepsi products (not even Dr. Pepper). So I […]

Old School Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies | PDXfoodlove

Oh my goodness. It is the craziest week of my life right now. I’ve been in San Francisco for two days, and tonight back in Portland I hit the ground running with a very full work day and plans with friends after work. Did I mention I’m traveling again in a couple of days? At […]

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Homemade Vanilla | PDXfoodlove

This is a post that has been in the works for literally months! I started making homemade vanilla in November, thinking I would use it as holiday gifts. Instead, I ended up using at our PDX Food Swap last weekend! It was quite the hot commodity. I will definitely be doing more batches for upcoming […]

Toasted Coconut Lime Bars

Toasted Coconut Lime Bars | PDXfoodlove

I’m not sure what caused it – maybe it was this lovely, horror movie-grade fog that we’ve been having – but sometime this week I began to long for the tropical. It’s not really very cold. But the occasional sunshine that comes out in the afternoon has me dreaming of warmer days, and that’s definitely […]
