Easter Dinner With a Little Help from Whole Foods Market


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Easter DinnerMy newly employed 16 year old son has to work on Easter, so I am hosting the holiday dinner this year.

I don’t know about you, but there is always a ham on my Easter table, so I wanted to tell you about the special Easter Bundle Deal Whole Foods Market is running: 

On April 18 and 19th, get a free large strawberry tart when you buy any spiral sliced ham from Whole Foods Market’s meat department. 

Whole Foods EasterSpring is all about new – fresh buds, sprouting blooms and (finally!) a change in weather. Bring some change to classic holiday recipes for Easter with simple ideas from Whole Foods Market. Drawing on global influences, lighter ingredients, flavor fusion, and the spiral ham deal you can’t miss, these inspired ideas give tradition a twist.

Check out this round up of brunch-basics for great menu ideas, especially these updated holiday favorites:

  • Mango Mimosas – greet guests with an unexpected, tropical twist in their brunch beverage

Mango Mimosa from Whole Foods Market

  • Ham and Rhubarb Jam Toasties – Easter ham gets a flavor upgrade with sweet-tart rhubarb jam. Rhubarb is an exciting ingredient only available in spring.

Ham and Rhubarb Jam Toasties - Whole Foods Market

  • Inside-Out Easter Eggs – these deviled eggs put the color inside the egg with the addition of beets to a classically creamy yolk filling. Look for precooked, peeled beets in the produce section.

Inside Out Easter Eggs - Whole Foods Market

  • Deviled Frittata – update both a deviled egg and a frittata by combining the familiar flavors into one dish. Rich egg yolks, tart yellow mustard, creamy mayonnaise and sweet paprika flavor this easy frittata.

Order online for the most modern upgrade – skip the prep time and focus on family time with a little help from Whole Foods Market’s online ordering. Choose from two complete menus for four, starring either maple-mustard glazed ham, or quiche and smoked salmon.

HOLIDAY CROSSOVERS – These crowd-pleasing dishes are great for entertaining during Easter, Passover or any special occasion.

  • Smoked Salmon Crepes with Creamed Peas – these whole wheat crêpes are filled with smoked salmon and topped with a creamy mixture of peas and dill. Matzoh fans can make a rustic version of these crêpes using matzoh meal.

  • Leg of Lamb with Mint Salsa Verde – lamb is a traditional springtime protein, appropriate for both holidays. Mint is a classic flavor combination remixed into this fresh salsa verde.

10 Take-Aways from Taste Washington


, , , ,

Taste WashingtonA couple of weeks ago I attended one of the premier food and wine events in the country and as someone who doesn’t know much about wine and wants to know more, I was so excited to see what I could learn.


Taste Washingtonand EAT.

Taste Washington

Delicious Penne Vodka from Assiaggo.

Here are ten observations I made during my first visit to Taste Washington:

  • 1. Water is VERY important -

Talking Rain Beverage CompanyDrinking lots of water is key to attending an event like this. It is just so warm with all the people and really easy to become dehydrated when tasting all this terrific food and wine.

Water is also very useful at a wine event for rinsing out your glass in between tastes.

Taste WashingtonAnd frozen into cubes, it helps to keep all those pours of white icy cold.

  • 2. Red Mountain isn’t really a mountain -

Taste WashingtonIt’s a steep slope on the eastern edge of the Yakima Valley where some of the finest wineries in Washington source their grapes, like this lovely Syrah I tasted from Obelisco Estate.

Taste WashingtonAnd these selections from Auclair Winery.

  • 3. Dessert should be fun -

Taste WashingtonWho doesn’t love dessert that comes in little jars!

Taste WashingtonAnd, what about ice cream that can be made using liquid nitrogen?

Taste WashingtonDessert and science make for a tasty combination!

Taste WashingtonScience also plays a part in producing these fresh handcrafted truffles made at Intrigue Chocolate Co. with all natural flavor ingredients. In fact, some flavors are only available seasonally as they are sourced directly from farmer’s market produce.

  • 4. Wine doesn’t have to be stuffy - 

Taste WashingtonFor your next girls night in, try this Girly Girl wine – a line of wine with distinct personalities. Each varietal portrays a different female character complete with her own personality.

Taste WashingtonWine can also have fun names like this Ded.Recogning label from Compass Wines.

Taste WashingtonOr this bottle of Jet Black. Alexandria Nicole Cellars has lovely wines, but they don’t take themselves too seriously – in fact, the lady pouring my taste told me that many of the employees can be heard singing AC/DC’s “Back in Black” when this varietal is released.

  • 5. Wine can pair well with cased meat - 

Taste WashingtonOf course I have enjoyed my wine and cheese with salami many times.

Taste Washington But wine infused charcuterie takes it to a whole new level!

Taste WashingtonEven a simple beef frank (though the incomparable Dante’s Inferno Dogs are anything but simple tasting!) can pair well with a bold red.

Taste WashingtonSomething a but more spicy is also great with reds.

Taste WashingtonThis Gard Vintners Vaucluse red was amazing paired with the Cajan Andouille from Uli’s.

Taste WashingtonBut I also learned one has to be careful when snapping photos…

Taste WashingtonIf you nab the attention of the vendor, you’ll get the “good shot”, but you just might be challenged to eat the entire link!

Quite a feat three quarters of the way into tasting an event with over 200 wineries and 75 food purveyors.

Taste Washington

  • 6. Go for the VIP treatment -

Taste WashingtonThe VIP tent is a great upgrade – a fantastic place to recharge and not have to wait too long in a line.

Taste WashingtonIt also has the fanciest food.

Taste WashingtonAnd the most refreshing Rose.

Taste Washington

  • 7. Some of my favorite food tastes of the day came from food trucks  -

Taste WashingtonI just love the Barking Frog and the sweet potato and lamb chorizo croquettes did not disappoint!

Taste WashingtonDid you know that Seattle has a Paleo food truck?

Taste WashingtonThis grilled lamb with Harissa sauce and cauliflower pilaf was out of this world – you would never know you were missing a thing!

Taste WashingtonAnd, of course, you’ve got to have dessert.

Street Treats is one of my favorite food trucks in Seattle and she was doing it up right with delicious baked goods and handmade ice cream concoctions.

Taste WashingtonWhile I was standing at the truck a customer was gushing on and on about Street Treats own special crispy treats! I know – they are delish!

  • 8. Chicken and waffles = good

Taste WashingtonI’m not a huge fan of sweet with my savory, so chicken and waffles has never really appealed to me – but this! Oh my!

Mini Thai style fried chicken & kimchi waffles with a little pipette of spicy sauce from Kaisho in Bellevue. Wow! What a surprise!

  • 9. There are a thousand and one things you can do with wine corks -

Taste WashingtonOh, what a Pinterest-worthy day it was for wine corks!

Taste WashingtonSometimes the simpler the better – paired with a pretty spring bouquet these corks in a wooden wine box look so elegant.

Taste WashingtonWhat a fun way this would be to light up your wine station at a home gathering.

Taste WashingtonWine corks were even used to display the food. This black pepper crusted pork tenderloin crostini with cherry compote looked just as good as it tasted.

  • 10. I need a wine get-a-way –

Taste WashingtonEven if it’s only to Woodinville to visit the many tasting rooms of these wineries (such as EFESTE, where I can’t wait to have a little more of this outstanding Upright!)

Taste Washingtonand the new Hollywood tavern,

Taste Washingtonwhere I can get some more of these luscious smoked Aji Amarillo honey chicken wings with blue cheese!

Taste WashingtonBut I also wouldn’t mind venturing a bit further from the city. Like to Swiftwater Estates.

This family friendly, destination winery – in a great setting near Roslyn in the heart of the Cascades – is only a one-hour drive from Seattle. Located in the Suncadia Resort with access to four-season activities – golf, river rafting, fishing, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, etc.

Taste WashingtonWith an outstanding line-up of wines, it is also host to a great restaurant, Hoist House, serving terrific food. The restaurant features a patio that overlooks the golf course and mountains.

Taste WashingtonI think it would be fun to make a trek over there for a concert or event. Swiftwater hosts a series of concerts annually on the grounds and Wine in the Pines, a tasting event on Labor Day weekend, is one of several wine-focused activities held each year.

Pork Carnitas, Sweet & Spicy Salmon, Allrecipes and Mazola!


, , , , , , , , , ,

CarnitasI have some big news to share on the blog today! I am so excited and honored to have been chosen as one of this year’s Allrecipes Allstars!

Over the past several years here on KristinPotPie I have talked about my love for Allrecipes – sharing recipes, my first visit to Allrecipes headquarters (which is located in Seattle – lucky me!), writing a guest post about “stick food” for the Allrecipes Fresh Bites blog for their #RecipeForHappiness campaign celebrating their 15th Anniversary, and my most recent visit (and chance to meet Chef John!) to the headquarters during last year’s International Food Bloggers Conference. Becoming an Allstar is like the icing on the cake for me!

Allrecipes has one of the largest communities of actively engaged home cooks in the world and is one of the most heavily trafficked food and lifestyle sites on the internet – it receives 750 million annual visits from family focused women who connect and inspire one another through shared photos, reviews, videos and blog posts.

In June 2011, Allrecipes.com launched the Allrecipes Allstars—a voluntary brand ambassador program with more than 100 home cooks across the nation. An Allstar is an Allrecipes’ super-fan who is always cooking, rating, and reviewing recipes, posting photos, and telling everyone about it.

allrecipes allstarsAs an Allstar I will receive benefits such as sneak peeks of Allrecipes’ newest features, promotions, and products, the opportunity to provide feedback to Allrecipes and to be part of the team while I engage with other Allstars around the country who love to talk about their passion for the Allrecipes community as much as I do.

It also means promotional items! As Allstars we get to connect with Allrecipes sponsoring brands and share with our readers information and recipes from these supporting companies.

The first brand that I have the pleasure of partnering with as an Allstar is Mazola®. Recently I received a bottle of Mazola Corn Oil in the mail. I was asked to prepare a couple of their sponsored recipes on the Allrecipes website and talk about the importance of Heart-Healthy eating.

MazolaHeart problems run in the women in my family on both sides so I try to stay healthy by exercising (I do need to be better about this!) and by being aware of what I put on my dinner table.

Mazola Corn Oil is cholesterol free and 100% pure with no additives, so the natural flavor of your favorite food comes through. Additionally, new research, sponsored in part by ACH Food Companies, Inc., shows Mazola Corn Oil lowers cholesterol more than extra virgin olive oil. Corn oil lowered LDL cholesterol by 10.9 percent compared to extra virgin olive oil’s 3.5 percent reduction, making corn oil more effective.

You can read more about the study and about the healthy benefits of cooking with Mazola® here.

Sweet & Spicy SalmonNow let’s get cooking!

I used the Mazola Corn Oil to prepare this lovely Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa. It was delicious! Salmon is one of our go-to dishes here in this house – the boys can polish off a two-pound fillet in one evening! – so it is nice to have a new way to prepare it.

I don’t usually go for fruit with my protein (I know, I’m weird that way) but this dish was amazing! The strong flavors of the grapefruit is offset by the sweet hint of brown sugar in the fish rub and the spice level is just right.

Pork CarnitasBut my new favorite recipe is this Pork Carnitas dish sponsored by Mazola®. I just loved the tomatillos in the sauce and it was so easy to make.

The pork is really tender when slow cooked in this way and it really is a versatile dish – just cook up a batch of the meat, choose your tortilla (I generally prefer flour) and use whatever toppings you like. Check out this delicious and healthy recipe here.

I hope you will give these recipes a try and let me know what you and your family think and I cannot wait to share more Allrecipes love with you in the coming months! Stay tuned!

Disclosure: I am an Allrecipes Allstar brand ambassador (a voluntary position) and I’m not compensated for my work with Allrecipes.com. Products received from Mazola® were only used for experienced-based reviews on KristinPotPie. The reviews, content and opinions expressed in this blog are based purely on my own opinions.

For Your Scantily Clad Walls – 20% off Mantle Art


, , , , , , ,

Mantle ArtEven though it has been a couple of weeks, it seems like just yesterday that I was in New Orleans for Mardi Gras celebrating my 20th wedding anniversary. Oh what a trip it was! And the food? Oh! The food! More on that later – I promise :-)

In reflecting on our big day, I spent some time re-reading some of the anniversary posts I have shared with you all here on KristinPotPie. In this popular post, honoring our 17th, I shared the 17 things I love about my husband. This one is still my favorite. We were just kids when we met! And I just love those rainbow suspenders!

Then, on our 18th anniversary, I wrote about marriage longevity, compromise and our blank walls.

Wall ArtThat year I made this as an anniversary gift for the hubs.

It’s a nice representation of the places that have been pivotal in our relationship – where we met, where we got engaged, where we got married and where we make our home now.

Two years later and we do have a few more things on the walls – thanks to my husband’s stepmother who is an amazing photographer and has gifted us with some beautiful prints.

Wall ArtLike this one above our half wall. Can you guess where in Seattle this photograph was taken?

But compromise can be slow going in this house and our walls are still sorely lacking.

Lately we have been cleaning out and organizing our attic – and by “we”, I mean my husband. I know I am crazy – I do not save too many things, but when it comes to my kids – yep, I am so nostalgic. I am definitely a saver when it comes to memories.

Wall ArtThese boxes were pulled down from the attic and have been sitting in our living room for a while. The boys are teenagers now, but their kid art is still too much fun. And I am falling in love with some of these pieces all over again.

More kid art on the walls? Why not!

Wall ArtThis one would be great for spring!

Such perfect timing to be introduced to a new mobile app, Mantle Art.

It just may come in handy as we work to fill our walls.

Mantle Art is the first mobile app developed specifically for custom framing your art – modern framing made easy. And even better? Mantle Art is generously offering YOU – my readers – 20% off to try it out.

Mantle ArtThe Mantle Art app offers a simple and fast way for consumers to select, preview and purchase custom framing for your art, whether you are at home (perfect for kid art!) or perhaps at a gallery, shop, or art fair. With the touch of a button, customers can determine exactly how the art will look and how much it will cost to frame. No more waiting around the frame shop or second guessing the expensive cost of framing, as Mantle Art does all of the work within seconds.

Simply download the free app, select the size of your image and then snap a photo of it. Within seconds, Mantle Art will make suggestions for what looks best. Pricing will be made available each step of the way.

Mantle ArtOnce a customer has made their framing selection, Mantle Art will send either a tube or envelope to collect the artwork.

Shipping is included and the art is insured. The entire process takes up to two weeks. Once the custom framed piece is received, all that is left is to hang it and enjoy.

Mantle ArtThe Mantle Art app is available through the iPhone app store and can also be used on an iPad.

To get your 20% off, use this CODE: SEVENTS20. Expires in 90 days

Now my husband and I just have to come to an agreement about which wall to fill first!

Deathcake OrignaleI received a sample of this decadent little treat (with HUGE chocolate flavor) during the height of my work haze last month as I planned the Opening Night Party at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show, and it was my savior through the crazy town that is event planning. (But I do love it!)

Beast Corn for the Big Game!


, , , , , , , , ,

Beast CornAre you ready for some football?

I know I have been neglectful of the blog lately but I spent much of the month sick with that bad flu that everyone has been getting, plus I have been a bit buried at work with a big fundraising event coming up next week.

But, I have been taking time out to watch some football. And I am getting super excited for the big game coming up this weekend!

The Seahawks are in the Super Bowl and I can’t wait to see them crush Denver! Who’s with me?

Of course the best thing next to the game (and the commercials!) is the snacks!


Seattle is so excited that our home team is going to the BIG GAME so to help us say it as loud as possible KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn has created a special flavor just for the big day – Beast Corn popcorn, a colored Kettle Corn! It’s snacking delicious and is available in-store and online until game day, Sunday, February 2.

Beast Corn popcorn is available in 1 Gallon Bags for $13 each.
