Greek Yogurt, Dill & Sardine Toast

Greek Yogurt, Dill & Sardine Toast | PDXfoodlove

How is it already Wednesday night? I think I might give up keeping track of the days until March. I have a ton of travel coming up – a half marathon, a 90th birthday and work stuff. Plus tons of fun social activities. I invested in a day planner just in time. I am pretty […]

Chorizo Brussels Sprouts

Chorizo Brussels Sprouts | PDXfoodlove

Sometimes, you just need to get out of town for a little bit! That’s what Dave and I did this weekend. Saturday morning after baking some cookies, we packed them up and headed south to Corvallis to visit our friends. We were only out of town for about 24 hours, but boy, it felt nice. […]

Shaved Fennel, Apple & Celery Salad

Shaved Fennel & Apple Salad | PDXfoodlove

For some reason, around noon today I realized that I was in need of a fennel and apple salad. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the crunch of the fennel or the tang of the apples or the excuse to pack beautiful fresh produce into our dinner. Or the fact that we had already planned […]

Peach, Tomato, Burrata and Quinoa Salad

Tomato, Peach & Burrata Salad | PDXfoodlove

File this under “make it tomorrow.” There’s not a lot of time left to have peaches AND tomatoes. The end is nigh. Dave and I shared this for lunch, by the way. That’s a lotta burrata. And while I definitely *could* eat that much on my own, it’s probably not a good decision. I can’t […]

Roasted Padron Peppers

Charred Padron Peppers | PDXfoodlove

One of the things that I think I’ll miss most about going into the fall and winter season is the simplicity of summer food. I am sure there are simple winter foods as well. But right now when I can throw some adorable peppers under the broiler for five minutes, it’s hard to think about […]
