Roasted Beet & Greek Yogurt Dip

Beet & Yogurt Dip

Good morning! I’m traveling for work today in LA and planning to hit up some fabulous spots for breakfast and lunch. It’s always fun to be trying food in a city that’s not your own – and there’s nothing like doing the “work hard, play hard” thing and falling into bed, exhausted, at the end […]

Beet Purée with Yogurt and Za’atar

Beet Purée with Yogurt and Za'atar | PDXfoodlove

I have been planning to make this gorgeous beet paste forever. I have a brand new bag of za’atar and I was really excited to use it… except I left it on my desk at work for almost a week. And I would get home, and note that I still had my roasted beets in […]

Homemade Mascarpone

Homemade Mascarpone | PDXfoodlove

I’ve been talking up my homemade mascarpone for over a week, teasing you all with a Strawberry and Mascarpone Tart, and this Grapefruit Arugula Toast. Well, the wait is over. I’m finally writing about the cheese itself! I can’t believe how easy this was, and how much better the homemade version tastes. Or how inexpensive […]

Homemade Butterscotch | PDXfoodlove

Whew! I don’t know where the time goes these days. My new job has been very busy and fun, and it’s had me in Seattle twice already and soon I’m off to LA. I used to live in the Seattle area when I was very young, and I loved it then. It’s been really fun […]

Kale & Almond Pesto Toast

Kale Pesto + Yogurt Toast | PDXfoodlove

What a nice weekend this has been. For the first time in forever, I didn’t have anything going on. Dave and I had time to go to yoga, have a long run outside, do a nice deep clean of the house and tons of laundry, and make gorgeous, healthy meals at home. Oh, and watch […]

Easiest Tomatillo Salsa

Easiest Tomatillo Salsa

I am really having fun with super-simple produce dishes lately. That Brussels sprout salad from yesterday was so good in my lunch today! I also am still fondly recalling last Friday night, when I basically roughly chopped a brownie pan full of vegetables, tossed them in oil, salted and roasted them, and that was our […]

Garlic Scape Pesto

Garlic Scape Pesto

The best part about local Farmers Markets is learning to cook new things. For example, my friend recently walked up to my computer at work, saw one of my photos from this recipe, and referred to it as “snake pesto.” Understandably. Quite frankly I haven’t known what the heck a garlic scape is for that […]

Piquillo Pepper Puree from Chef Jenn Louis at Lincoln

Piquillo Pepper Dip

Okay, people reading this, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. It’s the kind of secret that I kind of debate actually sharing, because I don’t want too many people to know about it. But then again, what is food, if not for sharing? So here goes (deep breath): About once a […]
