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 […]

Banana Chocolate Oatmeal Muffins

Banana Oat Chocolate Chip Muffins | PDXfoodlove

If I ever run out of stuff to put in muffins, or combinations of stuff to put in muffins, I will be very sad. It’s officially “the holidays” now. We’re busy party-planning, present shopping and getting ready for travel. Basically it’s an entire month packed with my favorite things. And this year it will include […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tomato Strawberry Bruschetta

Get ready for the easiest, springiest appetizer you’ve ever laid eyes on. This tomato strawberry bruschetta makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Good tomatoes are so delightfully sweet. Strawberry and basil go so well together. Why should all three not get together for a little party to welcome spring? Now, I […]

Well, the recipe is basically in the title! Sometimes the best foods are the simple ones. This is a quick dinner I made for myself while Dave is out for a work event. I had gone out for a run when I got home from work, and afterward made plans to work on a few […]

So-Easy Salted Shortbread

So Easy Salted Shortbread | PDXfoodlove

I have been traveling quite a bit for work lately, and one night I got in to the PDX airport and Dave was there to pick me up. It was almost midnight. I had eaten not-great food for dinner while at an airport that unfortunately only had Pepsi products (not even Dr. Pepper). So I […]
