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!

IFBC 2013 in Seattle, Chateau Ste. Michelle + Asian Honey Spiced Salmon

IFBC 2013 in Seattle, Chateau Ste. Michelle + Asian Honey Spiced Salmon

For my last International Food Bloggers Conference post, I’d like to talk about Chateau Ste. Michelle winery in Woodinville, WA.

There was an optional trip on Thursday, before the conference started, to visit the winery and taste some wines. It was a lot of fun and everyone was treated to a tour, wine samples, and accompanying food pairings. But one of the best surprises of the event, was that each attendee was presented with a complimentary copy of Chateau Ste.

A Couple of Hours in the Sun

Red Ridge Farms

Red Ridge Farms 5510 NE Breyman Orchards Road Dayton, Oregon 97114

Last weekend it was cold, clear and sunny, which is a pretty good deal for Portland in December. We took advantage of the weather to head to one of my most favorite place in all of Oregon — Red Ridge Farms in Dayton, OR. It’s part plant nursery, part olive oil mill, part gift shop and part scenic destination/place for outdoor snacking. I drag jwa there at least twice a year and always take lots of pictures.

Pictures in Wine Country

Mostly pictures today! We went to the Dayton and Dundee area a couple of weeks ago and I took a lot of pictures. It was a beautiful day — sunny and not too warm. A great day for buying an olive plant and tasting some wine!

First stop, Red Ridge Farms, 5510 NE Breyman Orchards Rd, Dayton, OR. I love this place. I could wander around here all day.

WCC 33: Coq au Vin with Autumn Vegetables

title

Whew! Right in under the 10/31 deadline! Confessions of an Apron Queen is hosting this month’s Weekend Cookbook Challenge and the theme is Fall Vegetables. This is a great theme as far as I am concerned as I do love the Fall vegetables. This recipe is from the Williams Sonoma cookbook, Autumn. I believe I’ve drawn inspiration from it before for WCC.

This Coq au Vin does indeed have Fall vegetables — carrots, rutabaga, purple potatoes, and parsnips. It was also supposed to have a turnip but I was trying to hurry and get dinner . . . → Read More: WCC 33: Coq au Vin with Autumn Vegetables
