Pumpkin Spice Muffins (aka The Dirt Bomb – Pumpkin Spice Edition)
These pumpkin spice muffins (otherwise known as dirt bombs) are like cinnamon donuts in muffin form! Super easy recipe, incredible flavor! “So what is a ‘Dirt Bomb’ muffin?” I asked the guy behind the counter at the local bakery a few years ago. I had never heard of it before and it didn’t sound ...
Feast Portland 2015 – Smoked
Three blocks away and I could smell the smoke. I was heading to the final evening event at Feast Portland and it was lived up to it’s name, SMOKED! I was wary of the change up, as I wasn’t sure if an event focusing on smoked food would be too…one note. But I should have […] The post Feast Portland
Feast Portland 2015 – Night Market
One of the absolute highlights of Feast Portland is the Night Market event. An evening of small bites inspired by Night Markets from around the world, this outdoor event has becoming one of the signature events of the weekend. Though shuttle buses are provided for bloggers from the media lounge ...
Feast Portland 2015 – Sandwich Invitationals
“I’m trying to think of something yummy for me to take you to…” said my friend Sue when she picked me up at the airport in Portland. I had just landed there a half hour earlier just in time for lunch. I shrugged and told her that it didn’t need to be yummy. I was […] The post Feast Portland 2015 –
Sponsored Post: Plum and Peach Galette (and a GIVEAWAY!)
I dread the end of summer like a 4th grader. It’s not that I have to go back to sitting in the boring classroom (I actually liked school, unlike other kids). It’s because it’s the end of all the peaches, plums and other berries. So in the last burst of summer stone fruit that hits […] The post

A Facebook friend of mine recently mentioned how her zucchini plant was so prolific that her neighbors had politely come over to tell her to stop giving them more zucchini. They couldn’t use it up fast enough. How I wish I had a neighbor like that! I adore zucchini and summer squash, though I know
Sponsored Post: Spiced Rubbed Pork Chop with Maple Blueberry Sauce
AJ was incredulous when I told him that I was making pork chops with blueberry sauce. Sure he was excited about pork chops. The man loves a juicy cut of meat. But the blueberry sauce gave him pause. I told him to trust me on this one, as the spices in the rub and the […] The post Sponsored Post: ...
Sponsored Post: New England Inspired Shrimp Summer Rolls
San Francisco is notorious for having a cool summer but when late summer and early fall comes around, so does the heat. When that happens, I try to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen in front of the stove and oven. But a guy still has to eat! Though I love the […] The post Sponsored ...
Apple Pandowdy with Blackberries
This easy rustic Autumn dessert is called an Apple Pandowdy with blackberries. Easier than a pie, simple as a cobbler, just as tasty as either! I can’t believe it’s September already. The summer is clearly over, with the last of the heirloom tomatoes, peaches and plums starting to thin out. Berries
Easy Fried Chicken Recipe (and what happened in New York!)
This easy fried chicken recipe uses 3 cups of oil and is finished in the oven. It’s insanely juicy, tender and packed with flavor as well! It’s with some sadness that I won’t be making my easy fried chicken as much as I used to. True, fried chicken is one of those treats that you […] The post Easy
