About Carrie Minns

Carrie Minns, La Pomme de PortlandHello there,

I am Carrie, a native of the rainy Pacific Northwest, and this is La Pomme de Portland – my corner of the virtual world where I strive to provide inspiration for nourishing our minds and bodies in rhythm with the seasons of food and life.

I am a food and lifestyle writer, photographer, and on-air talent as well as a mother to three busy, busy children.

In addition to La Pomme, I write and photograph the Home Grown Chef food column and Chef’s Recipe page for 1859 Oregon’s Magazine.

I am also a regular guest on Portland, Oregon’s morning show, AM Northwest, where I demonstrate how to prepare seasonal food on live TV. My writing and photography have been published in family publications throughout North America.

I love comments and feedback so don’t hesitate to contact me at carrie@carrieminns.com.

Thank you so much for stopping by!


A Few Bits More About Me…

I love English breakfast tea with a drop of honey. I love to wander the aisles of Powell’s and gently touch the spines of unread books. I love pumpkin pie for breakfast. I love the sound and smell of the Pacific Ocean. I love to ride the Mukilteo Ferry to Whidbey Island. I love to look across at Timberline Lodge from the top of Cascade Express on Mt. Hood. I love to laugh…loudly…at my own jokes. I love a made bed in the morning and throw pillows straightened in the evening.

I love my hubs, my children, and the start of the school year. I love lentil soup and a smooth Oregon Pinot. I love the way the French language looks on the written page. I love to speak French…although, I’m not sure French natives can understand me.

I love to cut the grass with my push mower. I love wandering around the Portland Farmers Market. I love Honeycrisp apples from Hood River and steamed artichokes from Tillamook. I love to eat my way through the seasons. I love food. Learning about food. Trying new food. Talking about food. Writing about food. Cooking food. Eating food. Sharing food.
