Veggie Lentil Chili | PDXfoodlove

Whew! Another weekend full of fun DIY stuff at House Hubbard. Dave finally was back home after two weeks out of town on production for work. So this weekend we made up for lost time with a lot of fun projects at home – beer making, chicken roasting, bread baking and canning. I even bought […]

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie | PDXfoodlove

I can’t believe the crazy amount of stuff we accomplished today and this weekend. We finished up some homemade orange liqueur. We made cake, scones, fish tacos, corn fritters, and of course, a cocktail. And, I got a ton of laundry done. But it’s been a hot one. The windows are all open and they […]

Homemade Almond Butter

Make your own almond butter

Do you have a food processor? Does it work? Then you can make your own almond butter at home! I remember the first time I bought some fresh almond butter – it was at a Sunflower Market in Boulder, which I think has been bought out by Sprouts nowadays. I miss that grocery store! They […]

Lentil, Tomato and Rice Soup – Vegan and Gluten Free

Vegan, Gluten Free Lentil Soup

I made this soup last weekend, looking for a way to use some pantry stuff and to make sure we were prepared for the week ahead. I was expecting it to be good. I was not expecting it to be so delicious that I want to make it again next week for Soup Club at […]

Jicama, Apple, Balsamic and Mint Salad, a 100 calorie snack or side

What a week it has been! I hope everyone had the happiest of holidays. I know we did – we spent a fun-filled long weekend in Wichita with my family and then just a few days later headed out for a week in Chicagoland with Dave’s side of the family. I can already tell that […]

Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Here’s a fun project from last weekend that is surprisingly easy: oatmeal breakfast bars. They’re ALMOST a cookie, except that they are much healthier for you because there’s no eggs and less sugar than you’ll find in a cookie recipe. This pretty-darn-healthy breakfast is actually naturally gluten free (if you’ve got your hands on some […]

Fitness Focus: Mango Apple Orange Smoothie

Apples in smoothies? Unusual, yes. But I thought it was worth a try. I threw a roughly chopped Granny Smith into this smoothie for a little extra tart flavor, and it totally worked – usually I have to add a bit of lime juice to make mellow smoothies pop. I think the apple added a […]

Fitness Focus: Strawberry Mango Smoothie

Okay, one more – this recipe was so good that I couldn’t hang on to it for next week. I bought some mangoes this weekend with the full intent of making a smoothie and shooting them, and then it didn’t happen. It was a busy and excellent weekend! And Callie was kind enough to make […]
