Welcome to Blue Palate

It was a rare sunny, December afternoon in Portland, Oregon, and my husband and I walked to Zach’s Shack for Chicago Dogs and beer. As we walked I talked about why I love hot dogs. Those close to me know I love healthy cooking and eating. I eat whole wheat pasta, I love just about every vegetable, and I don’t often cook red meat. But there are few things that satisfy me more than a beef frank slathered in mustard, relish, onions and a big pickle spear nestled in a cloud-white bun, just the way Zach’s Shack makes them. How could a self-described foodie and health nut crave something so textbook junk food?

Thus Blue Palate was born. Blue Palate is a blog for low-key foodies, like me. It’s not that healthy can’t also be delicious and affordable and low-key. I believe great food is about more than simply the quality or origin of ingredients and the price one pays for a meal. A great food experience is about much more than lighting and place settings and the perfect wine pairing. Great food can be accessible and affordable to anyone.

Blue Palate is for anyone who believes a great food experience doesn’t have to take place in an expensive restaurant. It’s the blog for folks who secretly enjoy the occasional mac and cheese from a box, or think the some of the best food is served from a 5th wheel trailer in a parking lot. We’ll explore the best of Portland (and beyond, when possible) cheap eats, food events, the best inexpensive recipes and the deliciousness found in everyday, simple meals.

I invite you to share your own experiences and recommendations. Blue Palate: the blog for the low-key foodie.
