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 […]

The Cocktail Diaries: Blackberry Lime Mojito

Blackberry Lime Mojito | PDXfoodlove

Once again, it has been a very crazy weekend, but an amazing one. I think I deserve a cocktail. Somehow we managed to fit in time spent with dear friends, volunteering at the farmers market, a photoshoot for a client and a celebratory anniversary dinner at Lincoln, which was just as stellar as ever. We […]

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 […]

Rice with Chickpeas and Currants | PDXfoodlove

Oh my gosh, what is in the air today in Portland? This is the worst allergy day I’ve had in at least a year. Let’s figure out what bloomed and burn it. I’m only part kidding. *Runs for more kleenex* It has been a long but good week; we are moving full steam ahead at […]

Mango Champagne Sorbet

3 Ingredient Champagne Mango Sorbet | PDXfoodlove

Today was such a stark contrast to yesterday. Yesterday even leaving the house made me feel terrible. We spent A LOT of time on the couch watching TV and playing Minecraft (Dave) and napping (me). Today, after a great day at work, I came home and got. stuff. done. It was so beautiful outside, that […]

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 […]

Roasted Cauliflower and Walnut Salad

Roasted Cauliflower Salad | PDXfoodlove

Hello from Texas! As you may have noticed, I have not been good at posting the last couple of days. I have been running around Austin at SXSW, learning a ton and having a great time. Sorry for the lack of posts. I am really excited to share this cauliflower salad, which is another recipe […]

Homemade Raw Muesli

Homemade Raw Muesli | PDXfoodlove

So… muesli. There’s a Simpsons clip that perfectly illustrates its reputation. But APPARENTLY someone has been minding their copyright infringements and I can’t find a photo or video to share with you. If you have it handy, it’s S12, Ep 18, “Trilogy of Error.” Homer, Bart and Lisa’s day beings poorly when Marge has decided […]

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 […]

Lentil Soup (Vegan!)

Vegan Lentil Soup | PDXfoodlove

I’ve been wanting to make lentil soup ever since Dave and I spent a romantic Valentine’s Day weekend in Seattle. We had a delicious soup at Petra’s in Belltown – it was part of a great meal overall and a really special weekend that took us all over the city to the EMP museum (awesome; […]
