FFwD: Lemongrass Braised Pork

Lemongrass Braised Pork

Here it is, another French Fridays with Dorie (just fyi – site is down until Sunday) post. I’ve been looking forward to making this for awhile now and I after I’ve made it and had it for dinner, I have to admit, this has probably been my least favorite FFwD recipe. Now, the bar is pretty high of course, so it wasn’t a total failure or anything, just not my favorite. My husband liked it a lot though.

Since it’s also for lunch tomorrow, I’m thinking the flavors will come together even . . . → Read More: FFwD: Lemongrass Braised Pork

Cherry Amaretto Popsicles

Cherry Amaretto Popsicles

The other week I picked up some sweet cherries from the Montavilla Farmers Market and I wasn’t quite sure what to do with them. Then, as luck would have it, I remembered I had just re-found my popsicle molds (they were in a cabinet, way in back, up-up-way-up above the refrigerator). Seeing that it is Summer, I put the two together and wound up with this delicious treat.

Delivered Dish: Trebol

Delivered Dish: Trebol

The other night we (I) didn’t really feel like cooking so we did something we hadn’t for a while — we ordered in using Delivered Dish and got some food from Trebol in North Portland.

It seems when Delivered Dish first starting delivering in Portland, it seems like we called an order in at least every couple of months but then we sort of forgot about it. I’m not sure why, we always had good service and we thoroughly enjoyed our every-so-often Indian food fix brought directly to our house.

Anyway, . . . → Read More: Delivered Dish: Trebol

FFwD: Salmon en Papillote

Salmon en Papillote

I loved this week’s French Fridays with Dorie, but in truth fish en Papillote is something I’ve made many times before. It’s such an easy, healthy way to make salmon or halibut or almost any kind of fish. I think I first saw it in a cookbook a few years ago, using the paper parchment heart method for cooking. That’s what I used below just because I’m used to doing that.

Okay, here are my notes from this week’s FFwD:

Epic Marinated & Grilled Pork Tenderloin

pork tenderloin

I. This is some really good pork tenderloin. You definitely need to grill some this Summer. Just pick a day and do it, you won’t be sorry.

II. I started volunteering at the Montavilla Farmers Market taking photos and it’s so fun. I’m posting my pics on flickr, both in sets and also, adding the best ones to the Montavilla Farmers Market group.

III. You should enter the Bob’s Red Mill Spar for the Spurtle (oatmeal!) contest. The details are below.

But first, let’s get back to the pork. A pork tenderloin is . . . → Read More: Epic Marinated & Grilled Pork Tenderloin
