Super Bowl Snack

Homemade Soft Pretzels

Homemade Soft Pretzels | PDXfoodlove

One of my favorite things about writing this blog is discovering how much better homemade versions of some things are. Case in point: I can think of a few others. Pizza. Nachos. Muffins. Okay, maybe I can think of a lot of others. I’m definitely not saying I don’t ever like to enjoy a meal […]

Game Day (and every day) Coleslaw

Basic Coleslaw

Let’s be honest: it doesn’t need to be the Super Bowl or any other football game for you to enjoy some cooling coleslaw to balance out those spicy chicken wings. I actually have a habit of stealing and/or trading for other people’s coleslaw in the presence of fried food. I get the coleslaw, they get […]

Perfect Buffalo Wings

Perfect Buffalo Wings

What a crazy busy time it is. We have many projects going at the Hubbard house right now. As you may have seen on Twitter or Instagram, we bottled our first-ever batch of beer this weekend. We are also working on building some furniture. And we made a natural wood stain that kind of looked […]

Baba Ghanoush

We had a potluck at work this week, which means that I get to cook something extra! No sarcasm there. I can only cook what we can eat. If I’m feeling the itch to cook, then I either cook something we can eat or don’t cook. I try to look out for the vegetarians when […]

Easy Peasy App: Stuffed Jalapenos

Taking a quick lunch break to snarf some veggies and rice, and post a delicious appetizer inspired by an evening at Breakside Brewery not too long ago. For reasons that I will not get into, my relationship with heavy jalapeno use has been pretty bad for a few years. But I decided to take a […]

Quick Hit for Sunday: Hummus at Home

I love hummus. It pretty much got me through my days studying abroad, when I had a tiny, goofy little London kitchen with approximately three pots and a half-size fridge shared between six girls (although, I look back on that kitchen, that apartment and that experience with nothing but nostalgia). Let’s just say it wasn’t […]

Skinny Swap: Spinach Dip using Greek Yogurt

Spinach dip is easily one of the most tempting, most delectable appetizers around. Unfortunately, most recipes call for at least a block of cream cheese, if not more. Maybe also some sour cream, mozzarella, parmesan – I’ve had many combinations of these dips, and all of them were good. And while I frequently like to […]

Stuffed Mushrooms with Sausage

Yesterday was so busy that it kind of fried my brain, so I went to bed at 10, got out of bed at 7:45 and got to work feeling much better. And tonight (after I make up my trip to the gym), there will be PRODUCTIVITY. And maybe I’ll make some more of these: These […]

Easy Veggie Switch: Onion-Wrapped Dates

If you are throwing a party in Portland, it’s pretty much a given that you’ll have vegetarians, maybe some vegans, and people that eat gluten free. But cooking for all diet preferences is something we’re getting pretty good at, like with this easy vegetarian swap that Dave came up with last weekend. We had one […]

Homemade Cherry Soda

This isnt’ the first time that we’ve dabbled in soda-making, but it has definitely been the easiest recipe! Dave’s made ginger ale, root beer and cream soda before. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but the other three usually involve well, cooking. Haha. Which isn’t a problem in itself. But it’s funny to try something […]
