Cinnamon Pumpkin Muffins

Cinnamon Pumpkin Muffins | PDXfoodlove

So, forgive me, but I am one of the pumpkin people. I love pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin cookies. I love everything pumpkin. I even like the latte everybody loves to hate, though they are so sweet that I usually only get one per year. I could eat pumpkin every day in various forms. It’s […]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chunk & Cinnamon Scones | PDXfoodlove

Hooray for the weekend. Everything feels so much less crazy than it did even a couple of days ago. Dave and I worked cooking, styling and photographing on a shoot for a client this weekend, but we also saw Gone Girl (it’s an excellent adaptation of the book, but be forewarned that all of the […]

Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies

Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies

I remember when my freshman Spanish teacher made us Mexican hot chocolate in class one day. She had a little hot plate going up on the little cart that usually held the projector – I think it was for Dia de los Muertos – but we ate a lot of food in that class so […]

Banana Waffles

Banana Waffles

It has been another beautiful, sunny (?) February weekend in Oregon, and I am not sure I could be happier with how we spent it. On Saturday we planted a TON of gladioli bulbs and I can’t wait to see them come up this summer, and cut some of them and put them all over […]

Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

I don’t know where it came from, but Monday morning I had to have donuts. I thought about the possibilities, like doing a chocolate donut with coffee in the mix somehow (trust me, that will happen later). I also looked at doing an apple cider donut – though that becones a problem when you have […]

Chocolate Cinnamon Muffins

There is little I find more comforting than waking up around 8 on a weekend morning, French-pressing some coffee and baking. Believe it or not, I was once NOT AT ALL a morning person. I used to be up until 2 a.m. every night for no real reason except that I perceived myself to be […]

Cinnamon Muffins

  These cinnamon muffins were easy to whip together for a weekend breakfast, and delicious with a strong cup of coffee. I had to do a lot of work on this recipe, oddly. I started with one from Tastes of Home, but it used a creaming method, a la cookies, instead of the “muffin method” […]

Weekend Refreshing Beverage: Homemade Horchata

Going to a party this weekend? Is it outdoors by chance? Then this is what I suggest bringing, because that is exactly what we did last weekend: make some horchata at home. Horchata is a cool, refreshing Mexican beverage made of milk (or rice milk), cinnamon, rice and sugar. Not whole rice grains — calm […]

Homemade Pop Tarts. Oh Baby.

This has to be one of our most fun kitchen projects ever. We made homemade pop tarts. Yes. They are that good. It’s like the treat that I enjoyed so much when I was a kid because I didn’t read the back of the box and then ate them in sets of two. Then I […]
