“For the Love of Chocolate” – Portland Chocolate Festival

Oregon Spring Beer & Wine Festival

I’m going to take a little break from writing recipes to tell you about a fabulous, local festival that I went to last weekend at the Oregon Convention Center.

What better way to celebrate your birthday than sampling local beer and wines all afternoon!
