Tomato, Cherry and Mozzarella Salad

Tomato, Cherry & Mozzarella Salad | PDXfoodlove

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll say it again. I love making meals that center around fresh produce. Look at all this color (and vitamins. And fiber. And and and).

Pink Apple Galette

Pink Apple Galette | PDXfoodlove

I wrote this morning’s blog post from my hotel room in Los Angeles. Annnd just a few hours later, I’m back in Portland and ready to eat this delicious apple tart. It’s the last of the produce we have from the Montavilla Farmers Market, which I volunteer on the board for. It makes me sad […]

Homemade Spaghetti with Romesco Sauce

Spaghetti with Romesco (Red Pepper Tomato) Sauce | PDXfoodlove

Oh my gosh, this week. Where did it go? I say that knowing full well that tomorrow is Thursday. Let’s talk about romesco sauce: it’s an amazingly easy roasted tomato and red pepper sauce. There are basically two steps: roast veg on pan, blend veg in blender. It was great to pair with something that […]

I can’t […]

Chicken Paprikash

Chicken Paprikash | PDXfoodlove

As we were making this dinner, my husband said to me, “You would make a great old German woman.” I was making the spaetzle, so this was a pretty big compliment. You have to scrape little bits of dough off of spoons into a pot of boiling water – not so difficult in itself, but […]

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Apple Cider Pan Sauce

Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken | PDXfoodlove

It’s so funny how weird the holidays are. Early on there are tons of parties and it’s hard to make time for everything while also trying to squish things into your work schedule before everyone leaves. Then for about three weeks, everything is totally dead while we all spend time with our families. Until two […]

Mango Dark and Stormy

Mango Dark and Stormy | PDXfoodlove

I’m starting the week off with an easy recipe. We had a very fun and productive weekend, but I think I’m still suffering from a little bit of jet lag. Every night, 8:30 or 9 p.m. rolls around and I’m falling asleep in my chair. Right now I am drinking Tazo’s “Awake” English Breakfast Tea. […]

Miso-Glazed Salmon

Miso-Glazed Salmon | PDXfoodlove

Everything about today’s recipe seems like it turned out better than expected. Take the salmon, for instance. When I moseyed over to the Montavilla Farmers Market on Sunday I was NOT expecting to find salmon for $5/lb. I’m pretty sure that’s what we usually pay for ground beef. So yeah, I bought 2 lbs. But […]
