A Birthday Weekend

I love when my birthday falls on the weekend because that usually means we get to celebrate all weekend long. On Friday night, Cory got home from work and asked if I wanted to start my birthday weekend with a present, or end it with one. Of couse I said I wanted my present right that very second. He surprised me with a gorgeous watch...

26 Before 27

Today, I am 26 years old and I honestly believe it's going to be a wonderful year filled with growth, change and plenty of adventure. To me, 25 will always represent the year I married my best friend, the year I graduated with my Master’s of Arts in Education, the year my relationship with my family changed for the better and the year I immersed myself into...

Golden Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake

Yesterday we shared our visit to Cacao Drink Chocolate and now we would like to share the recipe we made in November with the delicious chocolate we brought home. Every year when my birthday rolls around, I always have only one request: that my birthday cake be a cheesecake. Cheesecake is one of my all time guilty pleasure, and if given the opportunity and permittance...

Cacao Drink Chocolate

If you love chocolate the way we love chocolate, Cacao's shop off of SW 13th avenue in Portland is a chocolate lover's paradise. We had heard from numerous friends that the 'drinking chocolates' at Cacao were to die for. Jade and I were planning a cheesecake recipe that incorporated chocolate for my birthday so it was the perfect excuse to go and pick out something...

A Sunny Afternoon at Coava

Coava has become one of those places that any time we are out and about in Portland, we simply have to reserve some time in our day to stop by and have a cup (or two). As you can probably tell, we had a lot of fun playing with the sunshine on this particular afternoon...

An Unexpected Snow Day

I'm usually the first one to rise in the morning. Cory tends to stay in bed as long as he can. I certainly don't blame him especially on a Sunday, which tend to be his only real day off since Saturdays are usually reserved for homework, errands and chores. I woke up last Sunday, washed my face, replied to some emails and sipped a cup of tea....

‘A portrait of one another, once a week for an entire year’ Thank goodness it's Friday. In this week's 52, you see Jade and I in the glorious upstairs of Portland Center Stage. We saw a fantastic, hilarious and insightful play about the one and only James Beard who, if you don't already know, was (and still is) one of the biggest influences on the modern culinary world....
