Harissa, Lamb & Chickpea Stew with Yogurt Sauce

Harissa, Lamb & Chickpea Stew | PDXfoodlove

Harissa might be my favorite new thing in my pantry. It’s a North African chili sauce/paste – depending on what you buy, I guess. Mine came in a tube. I know I’ve had it before outside of my house, and it seems like more and more recipes call for it, so I’ve been wanting to […]

Beef and Mushroom Chili

Another relaxing, fun and full-of-projects weekend! It’s amazing how time can be full and relaxing at the same time. We were busy doing holiday projects, planning a party, making delicious foods, tasting delicious food at Tails and Trotters’ open house, enjoying a date night at the Firehouse Restaurant, going to church and more! My life […]

Black Bean Coffee Chili (with a surprise ingredient!)

I am so proud of this recipe. It has depth. It has heat. It has smokiness. It’s (accidentally) vegan. But it’s definitely the best chili I’ve ever made. I am sharing it with my coworkers today at the Soup Club at work. Hope they like it too! 🙂

Simple Cornbread Muffins

This recipe is one of our standbys: easy, goes-with-many-things, and just plain delicious. Preheating the oven is the most arduous step. Possibly because it is the most perfect recipe ever. I love cornbread. I love cornbread muffins, especially because they take significantly less time to bake. I especially love them with Dave’s chili and a […]

Saturday Snack: Popcorn, but none of that bag nonsense

Popcorn is the simplest and most delicious of snacks. But I’m not talking about that greasy (but OK, sometimes delicious) crap you get at the movies or even out a bag. I’m talking about corn, salt and oil, with whatever topping you decide to put on top (more on that later). A 30-oz jar of […]
