Rebekah, the proprietor of PDX Food Love, has a simple yet compelling concept to convey to her readers. Want to prepare dishes that are easy to make and easy to love? Come right on in! Not only is PDX Food Love user-friendly, it has a lot of variety to it as well. There’s no one culinary style or cultural cuisine that she’s going for, instead Rebekah just writes about what she likes to make for each meal of the day. As someone who can define herself as a “meat and potatoes” eater, I really can’t argue with that logic.
For the cocktail parties you may be hosting or attending, the focus of the food is often on finger foods. PDX Food Love brings the noise and the heat for this, too. Bacon-Wrapped Dates are a classic appetizer that never fail to impress, and neither do Balsamic Pesto Bruschetta and Kalamata Tapenade Toasts. The Roasted Chickpeas are a simple concept with a fantastic result that will go perfectly with all those boozy cocktails. Sweet Chili Edamame Dip or Roasted Garlic Dip anyone? We’ll bring the chips!
The dinner party is what many of us look forward to the most during the holidays, not only for the entrees but for the abundance of desserts, as well. Start the meal with the Tomato Basil Soup and a Potato Roll. A Stuffed Chicken topped with a Chimichurri Sauce and a side of Mashed Sweet Potatoes comes together for a hearty meal that will keep dinner guests coming back for seconds and thirds. To satisfy all those sweet teeth, the Blueberry Pie is seasonal, delicious and is perfect topped with homemade Vanilla Ice Cream, because pie isn’t pie unless it’s a la mode.
PDX Food Love is a fantastic food blog that will satisfy any and all of your holiday cooking needs this year. We hope you enjoy her recipes as much as we did! Cheers, and eat well!
