Lemon Chia Seed Zucchini Bread

Lemon Chia Seed Zucchini Bread

Generally speaking, I am not a huge fan of chia seeds. They get kind of slimy and what-not and I just do not find that texture enjoyable. So, I have been at a bit of a loss of what to do with my huge bag of Chia Seeds. And I do want to use them, because they are SO good for you.

And then I came across this recipe and it’s perfect because it’s baked and thus, the slime factor is relatively low. In fact, the chia here basically take . . . → Read More: Lemon Chia Seed Zucchini Bread

International Food Blogger's Conference – Portland

IFBC 2012

I recently attended (as in “last weekend” recently) the International Food Blogger’s Conference here in Portland and had a great time. There was a lot of food, wine, bloggers, and informational sessions. I took some pictures.

During the first day, there was a Live Blogging (or tweeting) session with Travel Oregon. Some of my favorite tastes of the day were from this event. Happyrock Coffee Roasting, Straw Propeller Oatmeal, Pfriem Artisinal Brewery and Olympic Provisions (duh) were among my absolute favorites. Oh yeah and we got monkey hats from Mail Chimp at the after . . . → Read More: International Food Blogger's Conference – Portland

FFwD: Peach Melba

Peach Melba

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie was Peach Melba, which I didn’t really know what it was before I made it. Does it involve toast? No. Not at all. It’s infused, poached peaches, ice cream (or in my case Greek vanilla frozen yogurt), almonds, raspberry sauce and fruity French liqueur. Bring it on, I say.

The only bad thing is that I waited until the last possible minute to make this so I didn’t get around to taking pictures until around 8:30 PM, so my lighting is pretty bad. Bummer.

Cream Cheese and Red Onion Bialys

Cream Cheese & Onion Bialy

This recipe is one inspired by our recent trip to the coast, where each morning we got a delightful cream cheese and onion bialy at Pacific Way Cafe Bakery. I made these the following weekend and I think they turned out very well — chewy, cheesy, onion-y. Ohmygod-y.

Mine had (maybe…maybe) too many onions on them (but, I like to over-fill things!), but that was the only issue. I divided my filling up between my bialys instead of measuring it. The wrong choice? Perhaps, but all things being equal, I might . . . → Read More: Cream Cheese and Red Onion Bialys

FFwD: Cafe Style Grated Carrot Salad

Carrot Salad

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is Cafe Style Grated Carrot Salad and it is going to be a super quick post — not because it doesn’t deserve more review but because it is so amazingly hot upstairs that I don’t want to be up here very long.

Notes: 1. I used golden raisins, pecans and cilantro in my salad. 2. I halved the recipe. 3. It was very good and a nice, cool dinner along with a chicken and herb sandwich.

Here’s a link to everyone’s posts and a couple of photos.
