Parmesan Roasted Broccoli Rabe with Toasted Almonds

Broccoli Rabe | PDXfoodlove

Well, we thought we had the start of a warm and sunny spring – but alas, the rain is back. My red rainboots got a good workout today. Truly, it’s a good thing. Too little rain this spring in Portland would mean a much, much drier and less fertile gardening season. And the plants are […]

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Greek Yogurt

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Greek Yogurt | PDXfoodlove

This is a recipe I used for our Thanksgiving dinner, but I think it would be great for any meal (and it would reheat beautifully for part of a work lunch). But that’s not even the best thing about it. Besides salt, oil and pepper, there are two whole ingredients. Sweet potatoes/yams and Greek yogurt. […]

Whoo. It’s been a busy week already and it’s only Tuesday. At least I think it’s Tuesday. Tomorrow evening begins the first round of Feast Portland parties, and the fun don’t stop until Sunday. I have been working hard both at work and at home to get ahead of the game a little. Blog posts […]

Roasted Padron Peppers

Charred Padron Peppers | PDXfoodlove

One of the things that I think I’ll miss most about going into the fall and winter season is the simplicity of summer food. I am sure there are simple winter foods as well. But right now when I can throw some adorable peppers under the broiler for five minutes, it’s hard to think about […]

Prosciutto Fig Toast

Fig & Prosciutto Toast | PDXfoodlove

One of the my very favorite things about cooking seasonally is when you walk into the farmers market, and you know right that second what you’re going to make when you get home. Last weekend I couldn’t help but notice the figs. I knew I needed some in my life. And tomatoes. And some gin-roasted […]

Jalapeño Corn Fritters

Jalapeño Corn Fritters | PDXfoodlove

I’m in Seattle again, just for an overnighter. But don’t worry, I actually worked ahead this time and did a post! I know. Shocking. But I’ve got a goal to do 21 posts in August. That’s one for every single weekday. Yeah, it’s quite a few – but it used to be what I knocked […]

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie | PDXfoodlove

I can’t believe the crazy amount of stuff we accomplished today and this weekend. We finished up some homemade orange liqueur. We made cake, scones, fish tacos, corn fritters, and of course, a cocktail. And, I got a ton of laundry done. But it’s been a hot one. The windows are all open and they […]

Apricot Jam

Apricot Jam | PDXfoodlove

Annnnd we’re back! It’s been a very busy week; the kind of week that means blog activities may have to take a backseat. Now I’ve been home for a couple days, slept a couple of 10-hour nights complete with afternoon naps to tack on a little extra, and I’m approaching productivity mode again. Thank goodness […]
