Cocoa-Banana Breakfast Bread

Why should breakfast bars and protein cookies get all the glory? These mini-loaves have all the joyful decadence of a chocolaty banana bread while packing 14 grams of protein and nearly a quarter of a day’s recommended calcium. Plus it’s fiber-rich and high in iron. […]

Lemon Poppy Seed Tea Cake

There’s nothing as wonderful as citrus in the winter, is there? My recipe for this light and fragrant cake is after the jump, plus a variation to make an orange cake. Another tea cake! Lemon poppyseed, a pretty ordinary (but underappreciated) combo, improved by buttermilk […]

Pear-Almond Tea Cake

Tea cakes continue to be my favorite cakes to bake, and hereโ€™s a really nice one. This is a pear-almond tea cake made with one very ripe, asymmetric pear from last weekโ€™s @imperfectproduce box and chopped roasted almonds, flavored with a spoonful of @clearcreekdistillery pear […]

Spam Musubi Fried Rice

Musubi fried rice with an egg on top and a dribble of teriyaki sauce. It needed sriracha to bring some sweetness and acidity but it tastes exactly like I crumbled up musubi into a bowl! #brunchathome ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ–#spam #nori #rice #musubi #friedrice #hawaiianfood […]

Summer Ramen Makes Me Feel Fine

Summer ramen made with @nueskes impeccable cherry wood-smoked bacon; @umiorganic noodles (bouncy af); smoked pork dashi; peas, roasted tomatoes, corn, beans, squash blossoms, and scallions from the garden; plus a soy-marinated backyard egg. #dinnertonight #ramen #meatconcierge ? ? ? ? ? ? #bacon #noodles #vegetables […]

Miyazaki Style Sushi Salad

The boy wanted Spaghetti-Os, so I fixed myself a Miyazaki-style sushi salad (krab, iceberg, kewpie) bolstered by a little omelet and cucumber-hijiki sunomono, plus a little rice (shrimp-nori furikake) and miso. It might look light, but I got all turnt on @gueropdx for lunch today […]

Loco Moco

Had a leftover Nicky Farms venison patty and some leftover rice, so I made loco moco of course! Topped with ramen broth gravy (added the veggie pack from some @nongshimusa Shin Ramyun for kick), backyard egg, homemade tamago-nori furikake, served with a little side salad […]

Leftovers Surprise

Had some leftover creamed peas and favas from @laurelhurstmarket (and the cream, spinach, and pancetta left from the mussels), so I did what I do best: hacked the shit out of that stuff into a whole new meal! Cooked a little orecchiette, Vietnamese melon, bolting […]

Chocolate Chip-Marmalade Bread

Yo Dawg I Heard You Like Flowers

Yo dawg I heard you like flowers So I made a beautiful bowl of egg flower soup with rich homemade chicken stock, vermilion-yolked backyard eggs, fresh arugula and garlic chives from the garden, and some sweet frozen corn kernels, and then since I heard you […]
