Pie Milkshakes & Other Fun Ways to Use Thanksgiving Leftovers | PDXfoodlove

Happy Sunday, everyone. I don’t know about you but having a few days off has been fun, restful, full of adventure and fun projects. Not to mention spending time with close friends at our annual Friendsgiving. I actually haven’t done a ton of shopping yet – but don’t worry, I will remedy that soon. Yesterday […]

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 […]

Pulled Pork Waffle Toasts

Pulled Pork Waffle Toast | PDXfoodlove

I was going to make these sliders, but I think they are better eaten with only one waffle after all. When we made last week’s savory cornbread waffles, the breakfast part was great. But my original idea had been to make them into a savory dinner dish. It’s hard to believe that was more than […]

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 […]

Bacon Blue Cheese Dates | PDXfoodlove

Hi friends, I am going to make this a quick one because it’s been a very busy day. I’ve only been back in Oregon for about 30 hours from an amazing work trip to LA. It was a very fun time – we ate great food, went on a fun tour and went to a […]

Fennel, Apple & Pomegranate Salad with a Kick!

Fennel, Apple & Pomegranate Salad | PDXfoodlove

There are a lot of things I love about cooking at home. I love the time I get to spend creating something delicious with my husband (this recipe is a good example of that.) I love that I get to be really cognizant of what is in season, and know exactly where what’s on my […]

Cheddar and Asiago Poppyseed Crackers

Cheddar & Asiago Crackers | PDXfoodlove

Well, it’s been another crazy week! I am loving my new job – I feel like I’ve learned so much and I’ve only been here for five business days. I’ve already been on a quick trip up to Tacoma and Seattle where I ate all of the foods, and then bought the ones I couldn’t […]

Apple Ginger Smoothie

Apple Ginger Smoothie | PDXfoodlove

Bleh, I have caught the plague that’s been going around. I even had a flu shot. Weeks ago. This must be a different strain. I haven’t been incapacitated, just feeling generally gross for 4-5 days. I’m hoping that by tomorrow this thing will be gone for good so I can function properly again. I even […]
