Cocotte: Portland Dining Month & the PFA/Food Blogger Dinner

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

Food Blogger Cookbook Swap: Vanilla-Cardamom Madeleines & Tate's Bake Shop Baking for Friends

Food Blogger Cookbook Swap: Tate's Bake Shop Baking for Friends

I was recently a participant in the Food Blogger Cookbook Swap, hosted by Alyssa of EverydayMaven and Faith of An Edible Mosiac. I sent a cookbook to a fellow food blogger and received a cookbook in return – Tate’s Bake Shop: Baking for Friends from Lisa at Flour me with Love. Thanks, Lisa!

FFwD: Boeuf à la Ficelle

I really tried to like this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe for Boeuf à la Ficelle. I did! But, no, and I wasn’t the only one that didn’t quite care for it.

FFwD: Dilled Gravlax with Mustard Sauce

FFwD: Dilled Gravlax with Mustard Sauce

A little late, but it’s still Friday here on the west coast, so I’m just getting this posted under the wire. This week’s French Fridays with Dorie was quite the experiment – Dilled Gravlax. I want to say that I’ve made gravlax once before, but now I can’t find a post on that so maybe I’m just imagining it. Maybe I dreamed it. Or maybe that was in a parallel universe (pardon me, but we’re working our way through Fringe on Netflix right now and it’s all red vines, parallel . . . → Read More: FFwD: Dilled Gravlax with Mustard Sauce
