Whoo. It’s been a busy week already and it’s only Tuesday. At least I think it’s Tuesday. Tomorrow evening begins the first round of Feast Portland parties, and the fun don’t stop until Sunday. I have been working hard both at work and at home to get ahead of the game a little. Blog posts […]

Whiskey Peach Lemonade | PDXfoodlove

It has been a very busy weekend! Saturday was a girls’ day with my friend Aggie and her daughter Sidney. We had an awesome lunch at Bollywood Theater and of course went next door to Salt and Straw for ice cream when there was no line. I tried the apricot and citra hops ice cream […]

This summer has been so busy! I don’t even know how it is this late in July. On Saturday we were up early to get to boot camp. I spent most of the day working on sewing a dress for a theme party (which was later that night. Note to self: PLAN BETTER NEXT TIME). […]

The Cocktail Diaries: Whiskey Sour | PDXfoodlove

Happy almost Monday, everyone. I hope your bracket is in better shape than mine. I did, however, have the best weekend. Dave and I spent Saturday building raised beds for a community garden going in on North Interstate. Then, we decided we’d clean out the garage, which was a mess of tools, scraps and bikes […]

The Cocktail Diaries: A Manhattan Primer

Classic Manhattans: A Primer | PDXfoodlove

This post is unintentionally well-timed, because I think a lot of Portlanders have been making their way through their whiskey and bourbon the past few days. We are SNOWED. IN, and we have been for days. By my measurements we have at least 8 inches of snow. But when the freezing rain began on Saturday, […]
