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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

You know, it’s funny. Food fads can be annoying (I just know that skinny bacon buffalo kale with Greek yogurt will show up on my Pinterest feed someday – says the girl who has many recipes with at least two of those descriptors), but they can also be revelatory. Especially if you have previously only […]

Today we did something totally crazy. We sawed our box spring in half. Or should I say, Dave sawed our box spring in half, and only the pieces of wood, not the metal or cloth. The idea was that at that point, you could actually fold it in half by bending the metal, and thus […]

Well, the cat is out of the bag on some pretty big Me News. I am leaving my job at Girl Scouts and moving on to a new position at Provenance Hotels, a.k.a. the company that owns the fabulous Governor, De Luxe and Lucia here in Portland, two hotels in Seattle, one in Nashville and […]

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 […]


Ratatouille, a showcase of late summer veggies

I love ratatouille. It’s the perfect late summer comfort food. It doesn’t take too long to make and it showcases the best of the season (and also, the stuff that grows most plentifully. Hooray for another zucchini recipe!). It’s also easy on the ol’ calorie count (which I have been watching VERY closely of late […]
