Melty Apple, Ham & Swiss Panini

Melty Ham, Apple & Swiss Panini | PDXfoodlove

Good morning from the first day of winter in Portland. Somehow, school is canceled. There isn’t a single flake of snow on the ground. I’m a little grumpy about not getting the snow I was promised. I was looking forward to busting out my now one-year-aged eggnog. It seems far less appropriate without snow. But […]

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 […]

There is absolutely nothing better than lingering over breakfast. Today (yesterday to you probably by know) was the last day Dave’s parents were with us in town.

Hello friends, I am in Vermont and having a great time learning all about Ben and jerry’s – I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned in a post later – when I’ve converted all of my pages of scribble notes into actual English! 🙂 I am so happy and excited to be on this […]

Simple Apple Crumble

simple apple crumble

It seems like it’s still just a little for strawberries in Oregon, so for these last few weeks of winter produce, I’m thinking about apples. Yes, they are picked in the fall, but when stored propertly they can last a long time. And a crumble is just so easy and so good – it’s a […]
