Beet Purée with Yogurt and Za’atar

Beet Purée with Yogurt and Za'atar | PDXfoodlove

I have been planning to make this gorgeous beet paste forever. I have a brand new bag of za’atar and I was really excited to use it… except I left it on my desk at work for almost a week. And I would get home, and note that I still had my roasted beets in […]

Jalapeño Corn Fritters | PDXfoodlove

I’m in Seattle again, just for an overnighter. But don’t worry, I actually worked ahead this time and did a post! I know. Shocking. But I’ve got a goal to do 21 posts in August. That’s one for every single weekday. Yeah, it’s quite a few – but it used to be what I knocked […]

Peach, Kale and Goat Cheese Salad

Kale, Peach and Goat Cheese Salad | PDXfoodlove

This salad came straight from the farmers market on Sunday. I love being able to walk in with no plans be inspired by what I find. Peaches are finally in and they are so good. And I’ve been trying really hard to eat more salads. There were a couple of weeks that, for a variety […]

Chili Lime Roasted Vegetables

I just biked home in the warm, steady spring rain. It was about a 30 minute ride… and I loved it. This means one of two things: I’m completely crazy, or I can officially call myself a Portlander. I hope it’s the latter. I could have checked the weather, but I didn’t, so I biked […]

Easiest Strawberry “Caprese” Bruschetta

Strawberry Caprese Bruschetta | PDXfoodlove

Yes, caprese gets quotation marks. It’s not exactly a caprese, but I just made a little substitution. How was everyone’s weekend? We didn’t have a lot of things on our schedule, so we just had a glorious, relaxing couple of days. We got our butts absolutely kicked in yoga. We watched the Timbers win big […]

Rice with Chickpeas and Currants | PDXfoodlove

Oh my gosh, what is in the air today in Portland? This is the worst allergy day I’ve had in at least a year. Let’s figure out what bloomed and burn it. I’m only part kidding. *Runs for more kleenex* It has been a long but good week; we are moving full steam ahead at […]

Kale & Celery Root Purée

Kale & Celery Root Purée | PDXfoodlove

Whooooo, where in the world did this week go? I feel like I’ve been saying that about a lot of weeks lately. But usually, it also means that Friday is nearby. This time I’m fresh off a very fun work trip to Seattle. Every time I’m up there I try to find new places, but […]

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus | PDXfoodlove

What a nice day it has been! In Portland today it was somewhere in the mid-high 60s, and it was glorious. On my way home I stopped by the new World Foods, which is from the folks who own one of my very favorite places, Barbur World Foods, so it had been on my list […]

Green Bean Salad from Jerusalem

Garlicky Green Bean Salad | PDXfoodlove

Man, this is shaping up to be a busy and fun year already. Just in the next couple of weeks I’ll be in San Francisco and Seattle, and maybe Corvallis! And that doesn’t even include all of the fun stuff going on in town. I’m trying to be more organized with all of this going […]

Pomegranate Lime Brussels Sprouts

Pomegranate Lime Brussels Sprouts | PDXfoodlove

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 […]
