Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie | PDXfoodlove

I can’t believe the crazy amount of stuff we accomplished today and this weekend. We finished up some homemade orange liqueur. We made cake, scones, fish tacos, corn fritters, and of course, a cocktail. And, I got a ton of laundry done. But it’s been a hot one. The windows are all open and they […]

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes with Homemade Blueberry Syrup

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup | PDXfoodlove

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned our trip out to Sauvie Island from last weekend or not. It’s just a 20-minute-ish drive from our house, and yet we totally escape the city. It’s a little island north of town that’s full of farms where you can “U-pick” just about anything. We’ve done apples, peaches and […]

PB Blueberry Banana Smoothies

Blueberry Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie

We’ve been doing this whole “bread at home” self-challenge for four whole days so far, and you know what the biggest impact has been (thus far, anyway)? The fact that it’s not available as a convenience food. That sad, dense wheat bread from this weekend is fine for sopping up liquid like a sauce or […]

Blueberry Froyo Pops

Today was such a nice day at home. I spent the entire day working on stuff for the blog and buying presents for people. Not a bad combination! I love buying presents. When I got home from my not-for-me shopping spree, I hit the kitchen hard. It. was. a. mess. And after hours of cooking, […]

Oatmeal Walnut Blueberry Thumbrpint Cookies

Yes, that’s a mouthful, and so are these cookies.   Remember that jam from earlier this week? Well, I made 2 lbs. of blueberries worth, because I was looking ahead to making these. I have to admit, sometimes I crave something besides the traditional butter cookie dough (cooked, that is – I could never eat […]
