Shaved Fennel, Apple & Celery Salad

Shaved Fennel & Apple Salad | PDXfoodlove

For some reason, around noon today I realized that I was in need of a fennel and apple salad. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the crunch of the fennel or the tang of the apples or the excuse to pack beautiful fresh produce into our dinner. Or the fact that we had already planned […]

Pulled Pork Waffle Toasts

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 […]

Pineapple and Crab Fried Rice

Pineapple Crab Fried Rice | PDXfoodlove

… with an egg on it. Surprise! I realized just now that I have eaten six eggs over the course of the last two days. I had two for lunch. I had two for dinner last night. I had one for lunch yesterday. I am really hungry for protein and fat lately. It makes no […]

Whooooo, where in the world did this week go? I feel like I’ve been saying that about a lot of weeks lately. But usually, it also means that Friday is nearby. This time I’m fresh off a very fun work trip to Seattle. Every time I’m up there I try to find new places, but […]

Sausage Meatball Soup

Spicy Sausage Meatball Soup | PDXfoodlove

I need to get back in the habit of making a soup every weekend. They’re so fun and easy to throw together – the combinations are endless – and the best part is, you just make a big batch and you’ve got work lunches for a week. We’ve been pulling servings of this baby out […]

Well, it has been an interesting 24 hours. Let me start off by saying that Dave and I are home safe now. I’m typing this from the comfort of my couch, snuggled up with a blanket. But we haven’t been here long, unfortunately. Dave and I were supposed to fly home on New Year’s Eve, […]

Date, Blue Cheese and Bacon Chicken Salad

Bacon, Blue Cheese & Date Chicken Salad

Well, I am headed off soon to visit LA for a work retreat! I’m so excited about it – among other things (most of the itinerary is a surprise) I do know that we are going to In-N-Out. And also… brace yourselves… I’ve never been. I’m not sure if I can really call myself a […]

Spicy Pumpkin Black Bean Rice Bake

Pumpkin Black Bean Rice Bake | PDXfoodlove

We are doing a lot of cleaning out the fridge this weekend. There was a point last week where there was literally no shelf space left, and many things were precariously double-stacked that ordinarily would not have been. This was partly because it was almost Thanksgiving, and partially because we just had a lot of […]

Potato, Leek and Kale Soup

Potato, Leek & Kale Soup | PDXfoodlove

It’s been a busy weekend! I’ve gone to several blog- or food-related events, finished a new dress and of course, cooked a ton at home. Doing this whole blog thing really provides some unique opportunities – it’s one of the best things about it! But as much as I love to get to do cool […]

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 […]
