Shrimp Bucatini with Crème Fraîche Sauce

Shrimp Pasta with Creme Fraiche Sauce | PDXfoodlove

I loved this easy “sauce.” Nobody said it has to be fancy! The Dijon mustard was a smart trick to add some dimension without destroying the dish’s simplicity.

Kale & Celery Root Purée

Kale & Celery Root Purée | PDXfoodlove

Whooooo, where in the world did this week go? I feel like I’ve been saying that about a lot of weeks lately. But usually, it also means that Friday is nearby. This time I’m fresh off a very fun work trip to Seattle. Every time I’m up there I try to find new places, but […]

Spicy Asparagus Slaw

Baked Buffalo Mac and Cheese

Buffalo Mac and Cheese

I like wings, but you know what’s even better than the chicken part? The hot sauce and blue cheese. They can go with pretty much anything. Like macaroni. And more cheese. This pasta was just the right amount of spicy for me, and I would consider myself to have a medium-high spice tolerance (but not […]
