Secret Aardvark Drunken Jerk Sauce

August 6, 2015 by andrea | Comments Off on Secret Aardvark Drunken Jerk Sauce | Filed in Local Goodness, Products I Love

I like trying new sauces and condiments, and I have a fridge full of them to prove it. I especially like supporting local Oregon businesses, such as Secret Aardvark Trading Company. I love Secret Aardvark’s Habenero Hot Sauce so I thought I’d give their Drunken Jerk Sauce a try: tropical Jamaican flavors made in not-so-tropical Portland, Oregon. Are […]

Aloha From Oregon Cranberry Pepper Jelly

November 24, 2014 by andrea | Comments Off on Aloha From Oregon Cranberry Pepper Jelly | Filed in Appetizer, Life in Oregon, Local Goodness, Products I Love, Recipes

I’ve been buying locally-made Aloha From Oregon pepper jellies for years. They have a potpourri of flavors so you can switch it up depending on the season (Cranberry Pepper Jelly for Thanksgiving, Mango Pepper Jelly in the summer, etc). This last weekend I took a jar of their pepper jelly to a barn party and […]

Big Tony Brown Super Spicy BBQ Sauce

June 26, 2013 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Condiment, Grilling/BBQ, Life in Oregon, Local Goodness, Morsels & Musings, Products I Love, Recipes

Last summer I posted about my family’s favorite condiment: Big Tony Brown BBQ Sauce. The sauce is made locally in Newberg with all-natural ingredients, and is a must-have for condiment and/or barbecue lovers. Flavored with a blend of warm spices, it has a touch of tang, a balance of sweet and heat, and no trace of the fake smoke […]

Moonstruck Chocolates

I took a quick field trip over to Moonstruck Chocolates this morning because, well, do I need to have a reason?? Actually, I went there because Mother’s Day is this weekend, and my birthday is just around the corner, so I thought good chocolate was in order. Moonstruck Chocolates is a local Portland company that has received […]

Bee-Nut Butter Bliss

April 20, 2013 by andrea | 5 Comments | Filed in Local Goodness, Morsels & Musings, Products I Love

I was at the Zupan’s Market in Lake Oswego last week and I got to try a new local product that I’d never seen before…Bee-Nut Butter Bliss. The all-natural peanut butter has a touch of sweetness from Oregon clover honey, and a light saltiness from sea salt. The texture is in between smooth and crunchy. After tasting it, I […]

Big Tony Brown BBQ Sauce

July 14, 2012 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Grilling/BBQ, Life in Oregon, Local Goodness, Morsels & Musings, Products I Love, Summer

In Portland, we’re surrounded by great food and excellent locally-made products…and Big Tony Brown BBQ Sauce is absolutely one of my favorite local finds! My family loves it so much that they use it in place of ketchup now (I’m not kidding!). The sauce has a great balance of flavors — slightly sweet with a little […]

Secret Aardvark Habenero Hot Sauce

April 20, 2012 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Condiment, Handy Hints, Life in Oregon, Local Goodness, Products I Love

I have a confession to make…I’m a hot sauce junkie. I just love the stuff! Maybe I’m addicted to the endorphin rush that comes from eating spicy foods. Whatever the reason, hot sauce makes me happy. Recently, I bought a bottle of Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce (Aardvark for short), a local Portland-made product. The spicy […]
