A Tour of Oregon Food Scenery — The Breeze

My first morning in Eugene, Ore. started off with a trip to a farmers market where I picked up a cheese wheel; I paired the cheese shell with fresh fig jam. The saltiness from the cheese and rich sweetness from the jam paired up well. The cheese wheel came out of the oven with a crispy crust.

A Letter to Blue

I would be lying if I said I expected your arrival. I didn’t plan on being a young mom and I don’t think anybody does.
