Win a $10 Whole Foods Giftcard, also Malbecs!

Win a $10 Whole Foods Giftcard; Also, Malbecs!

This post is fairly short and sweet and to the point. Do you want to win a $10 Whole Foods giftcard? And why wouldn’t you – it’s a free $10 to spend on hummus, bagels, rhubarb, wine (may I suggest a malbec?), or even put towards some fancy steak, salmon, or tuna for dinner.

I recently attended a fun and free Malbec wine tasting last week and I got the $10 card from Whole Foods to give away on my blog. At this event, myself, a couple other . . . → Read More: Win a $10 Whole Foods Giftcard, also Malbecs!

FFwD: Vegetable Barley Soup with the Taste of Little India, with Cilantro Pistou

FFwD: Vegetable Barley Soup with the Taste of Little India

This, like all of the French Fridays with Dorie Indian-influenced recipes this was good, but I wanted a little more…something. It was a very nice rainy, cold weather meal though. The only substitutions I made were hul-less barley for the pearl barley and a sweet potato for the parsnip – only because these were the ingredients I had and I didn’t want to go out and get pearl barley and a parsnip.

FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

Well, this French Fridays with Dorie was a little different — but in a really good way. I didn’t quite know what to expect but it seemed sort of like a scallop pizza to me. And what does pizza need? A little cheese. I know some people do not like to mix cheese with seafood but — I am not one of those people.

Chicken with Red Curry and Saffron

Chicken with Red Curry and Saffron

One of my new favorite combinations is saffron and curry. I first came across it in the cookbook, 50 Great Curries of India by Camellia Panjabi (I believe it was a shrimp curry), but then, a couple of weeks ago I found this keeper online – Chicken with Red Curry and Saffron.

One of my favorite parts of this dish (in addition to the ease it comes together with), is the nut, rice, and curry leaf garnish. In Portland, sometimes you can find curry leaves at New Seasons, but . . . → Read More: Chicken with Red Curry and Saffron

Cocotte: PFA/Blogger Dinner, Portland Dining Month, and In the Kitchen...

Cocotte 2930 NE Killingsworth St. Portland, Oregon 97211

Meal One: Portland Dining Month Not too long ago, we went to the Live Wire! show at the Alberta Rose Theater and before, we went to Cocotte, which is where we always go to eat before Live Wire. I believe this is now a tradition.

And, as luck would have it, this was March 1, the first day of Portland’s Dining Month (3 courses for $29)! The dining menu at Cocotte is really very nice and set . . . → Read More: Cocotte: Portland Dining Month & the PFA/Food Blogger Dinner
