IFBC 2013 in Seattle: Pike Place Market at 5AM

IFBC Seattle: Pike Place Market at 5AM

On Saturday, a group of us attending the International Food Bloggers Conference, led by the knowledgeable and very friendly Chef Barry of Our Community Table. And even though 4:45AM is a god-awful time to meet in the lobby of the W Hotel, I ended up having a very interesting and enjoyable early morning!

When I first heard about this fieldtrip, I thought to myself – I just live in Portland, I’m in Seattle a couple of times a year. I do not need to get up at 4AM . . . → Read More: IFBC 2013 in Seattle: Pike Place Market at 5AM

FFwD: Rice Pudding with Caramel Apples

French Fridays with Dorie: Rice Pudding with Caramel Apples

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is a very Fall recipe – Rice Pudding with Caramel Apples. Like so many of the French Fridays recipes, I made a half recipe here and that worked quite well for two fairly generous portions.

Here’s the thing though – while I loved the rice pudding (Oh! and I added 1/ tsp powdered ginger) and used my new IFBC vanilla, I was not super-super in love with the caramel apples. My caramel sauce actually seemed perfect until I added the . . . → Read More: FFwD: Rice Pudding with Caramel Apples

IFBC 2013 in Seattle + Endive and Arugula Salad with Walnuts and Grapes

Endive and Arugula Salad with Walnuts and Grapes; IFBC 2013

This year, the International Food Blogger’s Conference was held in Seattle, which is only a short $25 (or thereabouts) train ride from Portland. Also, this year Dorie Greenspan was the keynote speaker and since I’m in the French Fridays with Dorie group, this event seemed to good to pass up. Especially since I really enjoyed last year’s IFBC.

I mentioned IFBC and Dorie’s upcoming appearance there to everyone in FFwD and to my delight, a lot of us (Doristas) ended up converging on Seattle to . . . → Read More: IFBC 2013 in Seattle + Endive and Arugula Salad with Walnuts and Grapes

FFwD: Tuna Packed Piquillo Peppers

FFwD: Tuna Packed Piquillo Peppers

This post will be fairly short and sweet as I’m on location in Seattle for IFBC tonight. In fact, just now, coming back up to my hotel room, I walked right past Dorie in the lobby!

Anyway, I liked these peppers a lot. I ended up using a can of Trader Joe’s smoked trout for the tuna, but only because I had that and I didn’t have any tuna (and it seemed close enough). Plus, I think the smoked fish complimented the peppers quite well. The only other thing I . . . → Read More: FFwD: Tuna Packed Piquillo Peppers

A SE Portland Brunch at Trinket

Trinket Restaurant for brunch, Portland, OR

Trinket 2035 SE 39th Avenue Portland, Oregon 97214

Recently, there was a restaurant a mere seven blocks from our house that we never got around to trying — Kingdom or Roosevelt. But, just last weekend it reopened as a neighborhood brunch spot called Trinket, and we tried it right away (well, within a week). I think that says something about my love of brunch over my interest in meat-centric, wild game meals.

Honestly, I really love that there’s a restaurant in this space — I pass by it everyday . . . → Read More: A SE Portland Brunch at Trinket
