Secretly Green Blackberry Smoothie | PDXfoodlove

As much as I love baking for breakfast, on some of these summer mornings where you can already feel the heat coming at 8 a.m., a smoothie is in order.

Whole Wheat Blackberry Muffins

Whole Wheat Blackberry Muffins | PDXfoodlove

Yep, I’m still on the blackberry train. Two days in a row, I know! But that’s what happens when you decide it’s a good idea to bring home multiple pints from the farmers market. It’s kind of funny – we don’t really need to make food for days now, after our photoshoot this weekend. But […]

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 […]

Marionberry Jam

Marionberry/Blackberry Jam

To say that marionberries are dear to the hearts of Oregonians is like saying that kids like pizza and ice cream: a total understatement.

Blackberry Donuts

Blackberry Donuts

These donuts were a sort-of last minute idea. Once again I bought berries because they were on sale with no real plan in mind. Then it was suddenly Saturday morning and we needed breakfast. I’m really happy with how these turned out, particularly because of the color. Who doesn’t like a donut that is bright […]

Fitness Focus: Blackberry Apricot Quinoa

Blackberry Apricot Quinoa with Feta

I love it when a “what’s in the fridge” dinner turns out to be this delicious (and this pretty). I am probably late to this trend, but I’m firmly on team quinoa. It seems like I buy bigger bags of it with each trip out to the Bob’s Red Mill store. Running and working out […]

Thumbprint (Jam-filled) Muffins

Have you heard of thumbprint cookies? These are the same concept, but muffins. I’d say they have a similar amount of gastroawesomeness. Awww yeah. A delicious muffin with jam inside! A perfect way to celebrate fall.
