The Cocktail Diraires: Cranberry French 75 with Doug Fir Eau de Vie

Holiday Cranberry Champagne Cocktail | PDXfoodlove

I suppose this drink doesn’t really resemble a French 75 that much anymore. But that’s where I started, so I’m keeping the name. Also, hooray! It’s my first cocktail recipe in several weeks, featuring local cranberries and a fun local spirit as well. I created this recipe with an eye to the holidays. On Thanksgiving […]

Cranberry Orange Muffins

Cranberry Orange Muffins | PDXfoodlove

What a restorative weekend it has been. Dave and I worked hard on a photoshoot for a client, but after we did our work (which turned out to be amazing!!) we unwound with a Mediterranean feast with our friends, a few beers and a day at home, cooking some of our favorite seasonal treats. Starting […]

Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale Salad

I’m going to admit it: it’s been fall for like three days in Portland, but this salad recipe is at least a month old. I used part of a squash for a client photo shoot and I couldn’t help but use the rest for this. Yesterday I spent one afternoon walking around downtown Portland in […]

Pear & Prosciutto Salad | PDXfoodlove

FEAST week is upon us. Starting Thursday, there will be so many fun events to attend and so many great foods, candies, wines, beers and cocktails to enjoy. I can’t wait. But I’m trying to be really good in preparation, going heavy on vegetables and protein and exercise. I have a feeling I’ll be glad […]

Blood Orange & Cranberry Scones

Blood Orange Cranberry Scones | PDXfoodlove

Oh my goodness, it is so cold. Where did my nice weather go? We are potentially getting up to five inches of snow tomorrow? DO NOT WANT! It turns out that people have a term for this – the nice weather that shows up around the beginning of February, then promptly disappears: “February fakeout.” Of […]

Cranberry Streusel Coffee Cake

Cranberry Streusel Coffee Cake | PDXfoodlove

Well, I think all of the presents are wrapped that aren’t going out of state. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s much to do (and much fun to be had) before we can take a break for the holidays. I’m a little worried about keeping everything straight. If only I could […]

White Chocolate Cranberry Granola Bars

White Chocolate Cranberry Granola Bars

Not so very long ago, I made my first successful recipe for homemade granola bars. Not only was I very pleased that I didn’t burn them this time, but they were also nice because they were so much fresher than the ones we buy every week in boxes. They are crunchy instead of that weird […]

Allison’s Cranapple Relish

One of my favorite things about writing my blog has been the connections – old and new – that I’ve made from it. Over the past (almost) two years, I’ve met tons of new friends in the food/blog/foodblog industry and had the pleasure of reconnecting with friends and relatives that I had lost touch with, […]
