Sorta Carnitas

You’re tired, you’re hungry, you’re not leaving your house. Story of my life, I totally get it. No judgement. In the off chance that you have leftover pulled pork from a lunch bbq excursion or in my case, a slow-roasted tenderloin sitting around (as we all tend to do from time to time) have I got good news for you!  Continue reading Sorta Carnitas

Adventures in Fish Town, Part 1

The one bad thing about being a newlywed is having to develop a whole new holiday schedule. Whose house, where, how long, mode of travel? To alternate or not to alternate, that is the question… The answer is that we alternate.

The downside of alternating is that each year we miss out on some family traditions, the good side is that we can skip some traditions all together and go on vacation instead. This year, we did both.

Happy New Year

Love this simple recipe for “zucchini slices” basically a delicious block of zucchini quiche that’s great for snacking. Can’t go wrong!

A very happy new year to you.  I thought I’d start the year with the simplest of recipes.  A recipe you can never go wrong with and one of the first I ever made – at school in home economics class.  Particularly handy when you have a garden full of zucchinis and a family who is a little bit tired of finding that I’ve managed to somehow include zucchini in every meal for the past few weeks.  I used this recipe and doubled it – we ate one delicious slice for a weekend picnic and the other has been sliced, wrapped and popped in the freezer for lunches and lazy dinners.

{I’d very much like to thank you all for your support in 2013.  Here’s to a wonderful 2014}

Chop ‘Til You Drop

I’m back safe and sound from my holiday hiatus and ready to power through (and share with you) the backlog of festive fare I enjoyed along the way.  A hint for the coming weeks: vacation activities included wrestling some gigantic fish from the deep blue sea. But I digress, as today we’ll be talking about the finest and most scrumptious of land animals, the humble pig. Continue reading Chop ‘Til You Drop
