Good morning. It’s still morning, right? Just barely. I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. We managed to make ours crazy busy (but fun!) We’ve been to parties, tried out a new restaurant (La Taq on Killingsworth – we liked it! Portland needs more Tex Mex), we went to an amazing Gnocchi 101 class […]

Homemade Soft Pretzels

Homemade Soft Pretzels | PDXfoodlove

One of my favorite things about writing this blog is discovering how much better homemade versions of some things are. Case in point: I can think of a few others. Pizza. Nachos. Muffins. Okay, maybe I can think of a lot of others. I’m definitely not saying I don’t ever like to enjoy a meal […]

Perfect Pumpkin Bread

Perfect Pumpkin Bread | PDXfoodlove

So, at what point can we officially call it “the holidays?” This weekend Dave and I definitely started prepping for them. We got some homemade eggnog started and now it’s aging in the fridge. We also started some homemade vanilla extract (yes, I did make a big trip to the liquor store. The population of […]

Bourbon Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Bourbon Chocolate Chip Banana Bread | PDXfoodlove

My mom makes the best darned banana bread in the entire world. End of story. Even by replicating the exact recipe, I can’t quite make it the same way. Maybe it’s that she uses the electric mixer to get the bananas extra well-blended. Maybe it has something to do with the pan or the oven… […]

Bourbon Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Bourbon Chocolate Zucchini Bread

What’s that? You still have an excess zucchini problem? It seems like even one zucchini plant will make more than a family with kids could eat. A few weeks ago, when walking down a street in our neighborhood, we encountered a pile of zucchini in front of a house. Next to it was a note […]

Seeded Whole Wheat Burger Buns

Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns

Well, it’s the second week of the great bread experiment. I didn’t make anything I made last week, so I am not closer to finding the perfect sandwich bread. But I am closer to doing a good sourdough! I really learned a lot this week and I think the loaves (oops, the recipe was bigger […]

Chocolate Brioche + Our June Bread Challenge

Chocolate brioche

Happy June, everyone! What a lovely weekend it has been. Last week I felt like I was constantly in sleep debt, but it seems that a good cure for that is to sleep for 10 hours multiple nights in a row (I guess it makes sense). Now that I am feeling normal again, I am […]

A Better Baking Powder Biscuit

Baking Powder Biscuits

Once, a long time ago, I did a post about baking powder biscuits. For some reason I did not even use the recipe that I always use when I wrote that post – and let’s just say it was before I really learned my way around my camera. So no, I won’t link you back […]

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Sometimes there are weekends where we make new furniture, sew stuff, plant stuff … all kinds of project stuff. Guess how much of that we did this weekend? Zero. Oops. But not really oops, because we had a great time playing video games, reading books, working out and of course, spending time together in the […]
