It's been a rough week, food-wise. First, there was Valentine's Day. We got four (!!!) boxes of donuts at work, tons of sweets and candies, and about two dozen cookies. Can you walk by a table full of that stuff and NOT grab something? I think not. Then, Rob & I went to dinner for… Continue reading Pork Tenderloin & Cajun Slaw
I haven't been cooking much with pork lately and decided I needed to change that. You can only have chicken or turkey every day of the week for so long before you get really bored with it. Seafood is expensive, and a once-or-twice a month type purchase. I'm trying to cut down on the red… Continue reading Carnitas Bowls with Chimichurri

Savory bone-in chops slow cooked to perfection with a tangy tomato & balsamic vinegar sauce. Best served with noodles or potatoes and with a heap of the tomatoes!

I got a cutie Pioneer Woman slow cooker for Christmas, and probably have only used it a half a dozen times since then. I can't give you a good… Continue reading Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Cherry Pepper Mayo
If you could only live off of one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? That's an easy answer for me: tacos. There are so many different tacos to choose from, and my personal favorite are fish, shrimp, and pork. I've even been known to dive head first into a few… Continue reading Pineapple & Pulled Pork Tacos
