Cherry Bourbon Smash | PDXfoodlove

This summer has been so busy! I don’t even know how it is this late in July. On Saturday we were up early to get to boot camp. I spent most of the day working on sewing a dress for a theme party (which was later that night. Note to self: PLAN BETTER NEXT TIME). […]

It is the day after Thanksgiving and I’m already making Christmas cookies. I am totally OK with that. This recipe is actually a special one that I’m testing for a contest! My friend Missy Maki asked people to send in their best holiday cookie recipe way back in October. We all received a recipe from […]

It’s hard to choose a favorite, but the other three usually involve well, cooking. Haha. Which isn’t a problem in itself. But it’s funny to try something […]

For breakfast this weekend, have some homemade jam. No canning required.

Did you know that if you aren’t making preserves that will live on a shelf for month – you’re just making jam instead that you’ll stick in your fridge and use in a few days – then making jam is totally easy? We are talking fruit, sugar, saucepan, done. This is a perfect application for […]

Six-Ingredient Lunch: Pesto Pasta Salad

Lunch does not have to be $7 out of your pocket every day… or 99 cents out of your pocket for a processed frozen meal that’s probably not to great for you (though I’ve definitely consumed a few of these in my day). Plus, I find that I really look forward to my lunch when […]
