The Cocktail Diaires: Sparkling Bourbon Lemonade with Mint

Sparkling Bourbon Lemonade | PDXfoodlove

It is such an epically gorgeous Sunday. It’s about 70 or 75. The sun is out. The clouds are gone. If you sit near the window like I have been, it is warm and pretty soon you’ll be finding yourself wanting a nap. I had my nap, and honestly I’m having trouble doing anything else […]

Brown Butter Roasted Radishes

Brown Butter Roasted Radishes | PDXfoodlove

You guys. Summer feels so close. In Portland, spring doesn’t matter a ton because it still rains all the time, it’s just warmer than it was in the winter. I have personally been caught in showers three times in the past three days. Whoever wrote that song about getting caught in the rain hasn’t had […]

Open-Face Prosciutto and Pepper Sandwich

Open Face Proscuitto Pepper Sandwich | PDXfoodlove

90 degrees! I can’t believe it. We drove out to wine country for a work meeting (no wine, this time, alas) and I think basically everyone in Portland was playing hooky and going home early, because traffic was absolute crap, even at 4 p.m. When I got home, I made sure the garden was hydrated […]

The Cocktail Diaries: My Favorite Cocktail, the Sazerac

Cocktail Diaries: The Sazerac | PDXfoodlove

I may have had a favorite cocktail in the past (Manhattan? Or I do love a caipirinha…) It’s hard to choose, but since I’ve become a regular whiskey drinker, I am obsessed with the sazerac. This drink is more famously from a specific place than most cocktails. It’s a New Orleans cocktail and NOLA seems […]

Tomato Strawberry Bruschetta

Strawberry Bruschetta | PDXfoodlove

Get ready for the easiest, springiest appetizer you’ve ever laid eyes on. This tomato strawberry bruschetta makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Good tomatoes are so delightfully sweet. Strawberry and basil go so well together. Why should all three not get together for a little party to welcome spring? Now, I […]

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 […]

Well, the recipe is basically in the title! Sometimes the best foods are the simple ones. This is a quick dinner I made for myself while Dave is out for a work event. I had gone out for a run when I got home from work, and afterward made plans to work on a few […]

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus | PDXfoodlove

What a nice day it has been! In Portland today it was somewhere in the mid-high 60s, and it was glorious. On my way home I stopped by the new World Foods, which is from the folks who own one of my very favorite places, Barbur World Foods, so it had been on my list […]

The Cocktail Diaries: French 75s

French 75 Cocktail | PDXfoodlove

I think waiting until 10 p.m. on Sunday night to write my blog posts might be a mistake. But I had things to do for most of the rest of my weekend, I swear. This weekend we interviewed new board members for the Montavilla Farmers Market. I worked with a friend and her mom doing […]

The Cocktail Diaries: Classic Champagne Cocktail

Classic Champagne Cocktail | PDXfoodlove

Last week I did an original cocktail recipe, and this week I’m doing one of the very classic classics. There’s an entire world of champagne-based cocktails out there, and most of them are delicious. I am one of those people who enjoys a good glass of (DRY) sparkling wine any old day of the week, […]
