Tomato, Tonnato & Cauliflower Tartine

Tomato, Tonnato & Cauliflower Tartine | PDXfoodlove

Say that ten times fast. Low hanging joke-fruit? Maybe. But is it my only joke about tomatoes sounding like tonnato? Not by a long shot. 🙂 Somehow it is Monday night. My brain thinks it’s at least Tuesday. Dave and I are cuddling up in bed listening to Radio Lab. We are such podcast nuts […]

Have I mentioned that we are from the midwest? [Of course I have.] We are loudly, proudly from the good ol’ heart of the country. For me there is absolutely nothing like getting to the edge of town and finding a stretch of wide open plains, as far as you can see. I like doug […]

90 degrees! I can’t believe it. We drove out to wine country for a work meeting (no wine, this time, alas) and I think basically everyone in Portland was playing hooky and going home early, because traffic was absolute crap, even at 4 p.m. When I got home, I made sure the garden was hydrated […]

Hello friends, I hope you have had a wonderful holiday season. We were away for about eight days, starting with visiting my dad’s extended family in Minnesota and then heading to my husband’s family in the Chicago suburbs. It is the longest I’ve been away from home in years, I think. I’m excited to be […]

Date, Blue Cheese and Bacon Chicken Salad

Bacon, Blue Cheese & Date Chicken Salad

Well, I am headed off soon to visit LA for a work retreat! I’m so excited about it – among other things (most of the itinerary is a surprise) I do know that we are going to In-N-Out. And also… brace yourselves… I’ve never been. I’m not sure if I can really call myself a […]

I think we’ve all had this happen. The alarm sounds, and you fumble to turn off that danged “marimba” or “strum.” Your eyes slowly focus, and surprise! That was actually your third alarm. You apparently have turned off the first two without even waking up fully (That would make a great Xbox achievement, wouldn’t it?). […]

My new favorite place to shoot photos is our picnic table in the backyard. For a lot of reasons – the texture is great, the background images of our raised beds are always gorgeous, and most at the forefront right now, all of the photo lighting gear is in the basement because we are currently […]

I don’t know who the first person was who decided that a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich needed a little avocado, but I really like that person. Don’t get me wrong, a standard BLT is also delicious. But bacon + avocado? That’s hard to beat. So we thought it would be even more fun to […]

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

Ok, I changed my mind about the “sweets all week” thing, because this sandwich that I made for dinner turned out so well. And it was so pretty outside! After I finished watering the garden, I had to take my photo on the picnic table. I am having a lot of fun learning to use […]

Happy Friday, everyone! I am very happy today because Dave is getting back from a long weekend in New York in just a few short hours. I’ve worked hard to get a few extra hours in at the office this week so I can be home a little early. So, this isn’t as much a […]
