Shredded Cabbage Salad with Orange Sesame Vinaigrette

Shredded Cabbage Salad with Orange Sesame Vinaigrette

If you happen to live in Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, Fargo, Anchorage, Denver – or any other city that has a real winter – I have a new found respect for you. No, seriously. How do you do it?! The cold, snow, ice, wine, and freezing rain. I hate it all. We just had 4 straight days of snow in… Read More »

Pronto Pizza: Bringing Quality to the Suburbs

Pronto Pizza

If you were to ask me about my favorite restaurants in Portland, I could rattle them off quickly and easily. Luce, Bollywood Theater, St. Jack. Du’s, Pok Pok, Boxer Sushi, Bunk, Apizza Scholls, Tanuki, etc. I could go on. We have so much good food in this town. I feel thankful and spoiled. But, what happens when you drive 15… Read More »

Friday Favorites: Super Bowl Snacks Edition

friday favorites superbowl edition | rosemarried

In general, I’m not one to write holiday-themed blogs or recipes. Most holiday food comes across as cheesy and inauthentic: heart-shaped cookies and lots of red food coloring for Valentine’s day; eyeballs and severed fingers and candy corn for Halloween; red, white, and blue for the 4th of July. I’m sorry, it’s just not my thing. And then there’s the… Read More »

Soba Salad with Chard Miso Pesto |

I spent a lot of time in the kitchen last week, prepping and preserving in anticipation for the PDX Food Swap. Truth be told, I haven’t been spending a ton of time in the kitchen as of late. Life has been busy and chaotic and I just haven’t had a lot of time or energy for creative kitchen projects. But,… Read More »

Friday Favorites: January 2014

Friday Favorites, January 24 | Rosemarried

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a Friday Favorites list. Frankly, I’ve missed it. There’s something strangely therapeutic about compiling a list of inspiring and lovely things. It reminds me how much I have to learn, and how much there is to explore and enjoy. Even in the midst of winter, there’s so much to see and do…. Read More »

African Peanut Stew with Collard Greens

African Peanut Stew | Rosemarried

This is the perfect meal for a dreary January day. The peanut stew full of flavor and spice. It’s hearty, but it isn’t heavy. It is simple and comforting, full of protein and leafy greens. The dish is vegan, but it doesn’t lack in richness or flavor. It just works, on so many levels. I honestly think I could eat… Read More »

Harissa-Stewed Butternut Squash

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 »
