Harissa-Stewed Butternut Squash

Harissa-stewed butternut squash with goat cheese | Rosemarried

When I first moved to Portland from Los Angeles, I was told that I must eat at Toro Bravo. I was warned that the restaurant doesn’t take reservations. I was told to expect a long (2+ hour!) wait. But, everyone declared that the wait was worth it. The people of Portland have long adored Toro Bravo, but I just couldn’t… Read More »

Here’s to a new year, to new adventures and new beginnings. My resolutions are simple this year: I want to read more. I want to spend more time outdoors. I resolve to make my bed, every single day.

No, my friend Beyth discovered these sparkling cranberry bites on Pinterest and then made them for a friend’s baby shower. I was immediately obsessed with these pretty little appetizers. They’re just so… Read More »

The Northwest’s Best Stuffing with Chanterelles, Hazelnuts, and Sage

'Northwest' Stuffing with Chanterelles and Hazelnuts | Rosemarried

Aside from the turkey, I’d argue that stuffing is the most important Thanksgiving dish. Stuffing is an absolute classic. Never mind the fact that we don’t actually stuff the turkey with stuffing anymore (it’s a health risk!), this classic still has it’s place on the Thanksgiving table. I’ll admit, however, that I’m not crazy about the classic all-American Stouffer’s stuffing…. Read More »

Cranberry Sauce with Juniper and Orange

Cranberry Sauce with Juniper and Orange | Rosemarried

When it comes to Thanksgiving, I’m a total traditionalist. I don’t stray far from the classics, and I stick with what I know and love. My Thanksgiving table usually includes the following items: a turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, stuffing, Brussels sprouts and/or green beans, cranberry sauce, my Grandma’s rolls, and a green salad. I wasn’t lying when I… Read More »

Roasted Delicata Squash Rings with Mast-o-Khiar Yogurt Dip

Delicata Squash with Mast-o-Khiar Yogurt Dip | Rosemarried

My husband and I are part of a small and informal supper club/dinner group. We jokingly refer to these gatherings as “The Beet Goes On”, mostly due to the fact that beets always manage to appear on the menu. (Apparently, we’re all big beet fans.) Truth be told, it doesn’t seem right to call this group a supper club. Really,… Read More »
