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

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 […]

Baked Eggs with Asparagus & Goat Cheese

Baked Eggs with Asparagus and Goat Cheese

What a day. I am emotionally exhausted after the US World Cup game. I’m sure it’s my emotions and not the beer that totally drained me. I think. It’s 9:45 and I am fighting to stay awake and finish up this blog post. Once upon a time I went to bed between 1 and 2 […]

Cocktail Diaries: The Bees Knees | PDXfoodlove

Happy Sunday eve, everyone. We are watching Game of Thrones and I feel an addiction coming on. Dave and I had a very busy and fun weekend. We had our first u-pick trip of the season. We went up to Sauvie Island and picked blueberries, strawberries and two kinds of raspberries. The strawberries have already […]

Easiest Strawberry “Caprese” Bruschetta

Strawberry Caprese Bruschetta | PDXfoodlove

Yes, caprese gets quotation marks. It’s not exactly a caprese, but I just made a little substitution. How was everyone’s weekend? We didn’t have a lot of things on our schedule, so we just had a glorious, relaxing couple of days. We got our butts absolutely kicked in yoga. We watched the Timbers win big […]
