Parmesan Roasted Broccoli Rabe with Toasted Almonds

Broccoli Rabe | PDXfoodlove

Well, we thought we had the start of a warm and sunny spring – but alas, the rain is back. My red rainboots got a good workout today. Truly, it’s a good thing. Too little rain this spring in Portland would mean a much, much drier and less fertile gardening season. And the plants are […]

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 […]
