Went to my friend Chris and Karen's a couple weeks ago for a sauna and their friend Paul Yonchek (he photographed a couple of Caprial Pence's cookbooks) made these tasty pretzel breads with mustard for everyone. So good!
I have incredible friends and family and we give each other a lot of love with food and drink. I started this blog series a while back to chronicle that. Here are some of the tasty things that I’ve gotten to be involved in with friends or have been given by friends lately…
Debbie gave me a big bag of delicious Green Salmon Coffee, from Yachats, to brew and fill my new mug withfor Christmas.
Several weeks ago my friends Chris and Karen invited me over for dinner and we made buttternut squash and chevre raviolis. So good.
What dinner looked like that night.
My friend Loly made peppermint schnapps and Kahlua for the holidays and I was lucky enough to get both!
My brother and sister-in-law gave me this mug with my nieces on it when I went home to Cincinnati for Christmas this year. It makes me happy.
My neighbor and friend Chris made a batch of this tasty raspberry jam and I got some.
And his girlfriend and my good friend Alison has been giving me eggs from her hens for years. I love my neighbors so much.
My friend Michelle and her daughter Kylie and I making beet salad.
My friend Emily gave me this jar of rendered pork fat from a class that she took recently at Portland Meat Collective.
And just so you know that the gifting goes both ways -- here are most of the edible gifts that I gave to loved ones over the holidays.
