.. I am on an adventure to mindfully savour food. In my blog I chronicle my kitchen creations and my quest to eat mindfully, to slow down and enjoy the smells, textures, and colors of food. I firmly believe it’s not about what you eat but how you pay attention. Full attention during a meal can mean you derive more satisfaction from just a few bites, than you might get by eating a whole big meal while distracted. I will share what I learn along the way.
My name is Emily, I live in Portland.

I’ve been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember. If there’s a technique I haven’t tried, it’s probably on my wish list. At my blog, Crafty Staci, I share beginner-friendly craft and sewing tutorials, simple recipes, links to fun things I find elsewhere and my successful, and sometimes not-so-successful, attempts at expressing my own creativity. I find that people who haven’t tried it before are occasionally hesitant to take that first step into making things. I try to guide and inspire them to jump in and not be afraid to make mistakes along the way. I hope to encourage others to create and keep handmade alive and well.

Hello, I’m Valen. I’ve always been passionate about food and travel. My two most-used phrases as a child were, “Let me eat,” and “Let’s go exploring!” My favorite things to do are exploring new restaurants, street carts, hosting dinner parties and traveling to see the rest of the world.
I often plan my travels around the food that I want to try in other countries, so I am happy to share my experiences with you by bringing you this website. I am here to give you news of great restaurants, both fine-dining and the hole-in-the-walls. I will tell you where to find the best street food, let you know which foods you can’t miss when you are visiting certain countries, and of course, bring you recipes and advice.

I named my blog Everyday Runaway because I don’t believe you need to quit your job, sell your belongings and live out of a backpack to “runaway” from the mundane, weekly grind of everyday life. Don’t get me wrong, I envy those who have the capability and confidence to take that leap – however, for most of us, that’s not a sustainable lifestyle. So this site caters to the everyday Joe’s and Jane’s who want to make the most of what they have – be it weeks or simply weekends.

Hi, I’m Waz! I recently relocated from New York City to Portland, Oregon. I’m an architect turned graphic designer, and I discovered my love for food while working in advertising for the wine industry. When I moved to NYC in 2011, I started Let’s Nom Nom as to document my cooking and dining adventures in my new city.
Over the years, I’ve gone from flexitarian to vegetarian to mostly vegan, and my blog has followed me on this journey. A plant-based diet is healthier and kinder to my body, to animals, and to our environment. I believe the best way to win omnivores over is by raising awareness of the positive effects of the plant-based movement and by celebrating great food that just so happens to be vegan. Today, my blog focuses on all things veggie, from restaurant reviews, to vegetarian recipes, to lifestyle and local events.
Lastly, why Let’s Nom Nom? Because food brings people together, and great food is best enjoyed with company!

I have a profound love for food. I mean, who doesn’t?! But, I also believe food nourishes more than just your body, but also the mind and spirit. It is the foundation of who you are and has made you into the strong man or woman you always hoped to be. It is witness to a conversation during a first date, the center of a wedding ceremony, and the conversation sparker between families. Food is more than just a piece meat (figuratively speaking). It is what keeps us healthy and brings joy to our lives on a daily basis. This is what I hope to share.

The summer after second grade, at the tender age of eight, I started my first job. In the early morning hours, when the dew was still heavy on the vines, I boarded an old school bus with my siblings and most of the other town kids and rode to Hentze’s Berry Fields. Here I would spend the day picking strawberries. For pennies. This wasn’t exploitative child labor, it was a way of life in this small town nestled in the farmlands of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. It was a lot of things, more of which I’ll write about later, but for me it was the beginning of a passion for food. A passion that I have been blessed to make a career. Deep in my being is that red headed girl with the berry stained jeans. Strawberry Woman is the grown up version of that little girl, armed with lessons from a complicated life and countless hours cooking, ready to guide, instruct and inspire others toward a more peaceful and creative relationship with the kitchen.

Three teachers reviewing Portland’s happy hours. Like most teachers, we don’t have a lot of money to throw around on fancy dinners, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t really, really want to. Happy hour gives us the opportunity to try new places and sample new foods without spending much cash.
I’m starting a catering company.I’m happy you made it to my little part of the web. I’m a stay at home mom, wife, and student who loves to cook, write, and take pictures (mainly of my food & kids). Besides cooking I sew, do yoga (when I have time), take hikes with my family, and practice the occasional art of wine drinking. As of recent my life has been very busy. My husband (Alexander) and I just welcomed a baby boy (Atticus) into this world. Our beautiful daughter (Makenna) also just started kindergarten, which means school activities.
Its not so much that I thrive on awkward situations, it’s more that I seem to find myself in a lot of them, and thrive anyway… I think that life is all about embracing the every day encounters that give life a little bit of flavor… AKA loving on the little stuff… a lot. Mostly this is a place for me to tell stories about my life, what I’m cooking, crafting, reading, thinking, enjoying, and feeling on any given day. I don’t always proofread, though I probably should start. I like pickles, champagne, peanut sauce, the Red Sox, adventures and some other things. I’ve spend the last seven years directly and indirectly orbiting the Oregon food and wine scene, (delicious!) but mostly I’m just living and loving life in the Willamette Valley. Technically I’m a fashion consultant and boutique manager,but I also teach yoga and barre, and spend a lot of my free time wrangling my troll baby of a bulldog, pretending like I know how to garden, and working on developing my skills as a domestic goddess.
Join me and my darlin’ Mr. B for great food and good vibes – including events, destinations, DIY and crafty arts – all from the heart of the Pacific Northwest.

The Salad Lobby believes that adding salad to the table will result in healthier tables, healthier people, and healthier generations.
We aim to influence American food culture by changing assumptions that healthy food is bland, expensive, hard to obtain, or elitist. We want to bring salad to the table of all Americans. We do this by sharing the variety that salad can offer. Salad is more than a tasteless pile of greens offered reluctantly as a side. Salad can be a delicious meal in itself, a meal that’s inexpensive and easy to prepare. Along with our readers and fellow saladvocates, we will raise demand for salad. If Americans begin demanding healthier, fresher, and better tasting food, our system will be forced to supply. The Salad Lobby has two ingredients: the creative, path-blazing brain of Lindsay Sauvé and the marketing, digital brawn of Peter Korchnak. Lindsay is The Salad Lobby’s soul, Peter the system.
See reviews on great restaurants when you want to dine out on the town and deliciously healthy recipes when you want to stay in. Recipes are dairy-free and gluten-free adaptable. Since food and travel go hand-in-hand, stay tuned for where to eat when you’re traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest too!
