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. […]

Old-School Boozy Punch

Old-School Boozy Punch | PDXfoodlove

I’ve been thinking about making this punch for a while. I’m getting ready to speak on a radio show about cocktails for the holidays, and I think that making an old school punch is the perfect accompaniment to a modern Thanksgiving – especially in the midst of a craft cocktail resurgence. I like the idea […]

Green Bean Casserole from Scratch

Green Bean Casserole From Scratch | PDXfoodlove

About a week ago I posted on Facebook about my favorite Thanksgiving food of all time. Not turkey. Not cranberry sauce. Not even sweet potatoes or even pumpkin pie (it doesn’t qualify because I would *never* confine pumpkin pie to just Thanksgiving). Green bean casserole is it. Salty, creamy, mushroomy green bean casserole. In college […]

Under 1 Hour Thanksgiving Ideas

Piquillo Pepper Dip

SO, you’ve been invited to Thanksgiving. You’re supposed to bring something. Thanksgiving is tomorrow, or today, depending on when you are reading this, I guess. The problem is, you have no idea what to do. Panic sets in. I have never, EVER, done that myself, no siree. Of course I have. But not this year. […]

Spicy Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Greek Yogurt

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 […]

Carrots with Dill and Yogurt Sauce

Whew! Things are about to get a lot more normal around here. Two days ago, on Saturday, we had a huge Girl Scouts event for which we have been preparing for months. We worked a full day on Saturday, so today (Monday) I am home. Yesterday, thank goodness, it was time for daylight savings. I […]

Bourbon Pecan Pie

On a recommendation from a friend (holla, Rob) we tried “The Pie That’ll Make You Cry” from Ree, a.k.a. Pioneer Woman for our Thanksgiving meal. Yes, that’s right, we did Boston Cream “Pie” AND a pecan pie. For my family in Kansas, Thanksgiving usually means like six pies (because many times there are 13-14 at […]
