Summer Veggies with Mint Pesto

Late Summer Veggies with Mint Pesto | PDXfoodlove

I love meals that are full of veggies. Especially if I can use the entire veggie – this one incorporates the tops of the radishes I put in, for instance. Also, it’s kinda purty, don’t you think? Let’s talk about edible flowers for a second, by the way: I have seen them at so many […]

Poached Eggs in Harissa Tomato Sauce

Yet again I am posting about something I ate only an hour ago. I’m even on the same glass of wine. This is also because the wine was cold, and I’ve been waiting on it to come up to room temperature. I love it when the sun is out and I can shoot late into […]

Brown Butter Roasted Radishes

You guys. Summer feels so close. In Portland, spring doesn’t matter a ton because it still rains all the time, it’s just warmer than it was in the winter. I have personally been caught in showers three times in the past three days. Whoever wrote that song about getting caught in the rain hasn’t had […]

This is what we ate for dinner tonight. Normally I don’t turn around and post stuff this quickly. But I’m posting it now because I’m so happy with how it worked out – and also my photo is quite pretty today and I’m proud of it. Bam: When I was heading home, I was thinking […]

Pomegranate Lime Brussels Sprouts

Today I would like to tell you a quick story. The story of a girl who sat down to write a blog post at 8 p.m. with plans to get done “early.” While writing, she decided to turn on the new Beyonce video. One thing led to another. As in, “XO” led to “Halo” which […]

Spicy Pumpkin Black Bean Rice Bake

Pumpkin Black Bean Rice Bake | PDXfoodlove

We are doing a lot of cleaning out the fridge this weekend. There was a point last week where there was literally no shelf space left, and many things were precariously double-stacked that ordinarily would not have been. This was partly because it was almost Thanksgiving, and partially because we just had a lot of […]

Fig & Goat Cheese Panini

Fig & Goat Cheese Panini | PDXfoodlove

Ok, it’s technically it’s more like a grilled cheese. But I didn’t want to say “cheese” twice in the title. These are the nuances of writing about food. (Really, there are plenty of nuances. But this was not one of them). Sunday morning Dave and I were up and alert earlier than usual (well, earlier […]

Sesame, Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Salad

Sesame Tomato and Avocado Salad | PDXfoodlove

For the past four weeks or so, a lot of real estate in our kitchen has been taken up by tomatoes. Sometime around the first of the month, I pulled everything that looked like it was going to ripen off the vine, afraid that Portland’s dreaded winter rains were imminent (And here we are, October […]
