Weekend Brunch: Make a Souffle!

Before this spring I had never made a souffle and I am not sure if Dave had either, but now we are pros! And Dave is the true master. They sound like something that is super, super tough and I know they have a reputation, but I promise it is totally within reach! You probably […]

Six Ingredient Lunch: Greek-ish Pasta Salad

Last week Dave and I discovered a weird problem: we need to eat more calories, or at least change their distribution throughout the day. Both of us had a day where we had a green salad for lunch that was delicious, but since we both run either before work or during lunch we were both […]

Corn, Caramelized Onion and Cheddar Pizza

Summer sweet corn. Not going to deny I’m a little crazy about it. Plus, we got some in our CSA, so it’s also local and organic. This recipe is a humble homage to a different pizza I had recently with a friend at Dove Vivi, a pizza place in NE PDX that is about as […]

Just a tease.

Guess what we are working on! Really, this is my hubby’s project more than mine, though I’ll help in any way I can. We took two trips to a great store in our neighborhood, the Homebrew Exchange on Kilpatrick in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland. It’s a great little store, and they have everything […]
