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 […]

So Easy Parmesan Zucchini Bites

Parmesan Zucchini Bites

Well, day two of being 27 is so far not too crazy. For a little while I was worried. It’s the first birthday where I’ve ever thought to myself “whoa, not really? That’s how old I am?” At this point I can no longer say I’m in my “mid-twenties.” It’s officially “upper twenties” now. But… […]

Bacon Kale Chips

Bacon Kale Chips

During my triage grocery trip on the way home, I bought a big ol’ bunch of kale. Of course this morning when making my lunch for work, I couldn’t decide for the life of me what to make it into. So I posted a call for ideas to the PDXfoodlove Facebook page and it turns […]

Homemade Applesauce

Homemade applesauce couldn't be easier

Yes, I am posting a recipe for applesauce. If you’ve made it before, it might sound kind of silly to post a “recipe” for it. But if you haven’t, well, it might be a little mysterious. Exactly how much work goes into locking away the flavor of early fall for months to come? Almost none. […]

Well, my big work project is finally (near) finished – I’ve been busy designing a 24-page magazine-style publication of all of our fall programs, and it turned out to be beautiful! I’m so happy. I have been working really hard on it and shutting myself in a temporary workspace alone at the office for the […]

Easiest 48-hour Fridge Pickles

48 Hour Fridge Pickles

This is the first year we’ve ever grown cucumbers in our garden. They’re actually kind of convenient in that the vines can just grow over the edge of the garden beds, not taking up too much precious square footage. And we have already harvested quite a few! This brings me a little peace of mind […]

Easiest Tomatillo Salsa

Easiest Tomatillo Salsa

I am really having fun with super-simple produce dishes lately. That Brussels sprout salad from yesterday was so good in my lunch today! I also am still fondly recalling last Friday night, when I basically roughly chopped a brownie pan full of vegetables, tossed them in oil, salted and roasted them, and that was our […]

Homemade Brown Sugar Pop Tarts

Homemade Brown Sugar Pop Tarts

Everyone has a few guilty pleasures when it comes to food. Cheese, wine, heavy carbs and such. I don’t really feel guilty about eating a rich dessert if I (or someone I know) worked hard making it. But what I do feel guilty about is eating foods that are engineered to have enormous shelf lives […]

Super Soft Blueberry Scones

Blueberry Scones using Alton Brown's tips for better biscuits

If you’re an aspiring home cook and/or enjoy the science of food, I hope you are listening to Alton Brown’s new-ish podcast “The Alton Browncast.” Each week he goes through interesting food news items, interviews one of his famous chef friends (and they’re great interviews!) and focuses on a specific food. Two episodes ago, he […]
