A Tour of Bob's Red Mill, plus Freekeh with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Almonds, and Miso-Aioli

Freekeh with Roasted Brussels, Almonds, and Miso Aioli

Oh my. My summer slump kind of turned into a huge hiatus – and I can’t promise that I’ll post super regularly from now on, but I am really going to try to get something up at least 3-4 times per month.

Recently (way, way back in September), I was invited to a wonderful food bloggers, behind-the-scenes tour of Bob’s Red Mill in Milwaukie. This was great for a couple of reasons:

1. Bob’s Red Mill makes high-quality products that are so inspiring to cook . . . → Read More: A Tour of Bob's Red Mill, plus Freekeh with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Almonds, and Miso-Aioli

Wow.

I have taken a loooooooong summer hiatus. I didn’t really mean to, I just…get lazy in the summer. And then we did a big road trip to North Dakota in September, and here it is, October already. I honestly meant to post this before we left but time just got away from me. It happens sometimes.

Oh my god, I know! Two posts in one week is absolutely crazy-times. But sometimes, I take photos that turn out amazing and/or the meal was incredibly good and I can’t wait to get a post up! That is what this is.

Last Saturday we had planned to go out to dinner and our criteria was this: 1. where can we walk to quickly? 2. where is there air conditioning? Winner? The American Local!

This was our first visit (Palino . . . → Read More: Dinner at The American Local

June is California Avocado Month!

June is California Avocado Month!

Last Thursday evening, I was invited to a California Avocado Dinner hosted by the California Avocado Commission at Mother’s Bistro & Bar (212 SW Stark Street, Portland, Oregon 97204). Relatively-speaking, I am a bit of a new fan of avocados, having really just started liking them about 10 years ago.

Gateway avocado delivery system: guacamole, of course. But jwa is an avid lover of avocados from way back, so I brought him to the dinner with me!

After some avocado daiquiris, socializing, and delicious hors d’oeuvres, Chef Lisa Schroeder gave . . . → Read More: June is California Avocado Month!

I’m a little embarrassed that it took me this long to get this post up. Late spring/early summer is usually a weird time for me and cooking — it’s not a total onslaught of summer fruits and vegetables yet and it’s not chilly roasting weather. So, I usually take a mini hiatus. Which is what happened here.

But earlier in the month, we ate out on the designated Restaurant for Raphael House fundraising event night (May 7). There were a number of . . . → Read More: Restaurants for Raphael House: Roost
