On Monday I shared with you the totally delicious and amazing pulled pork that I had made on the weekend. I had found the recipe on a site called Primal Bites, and was very impressed with the texture and taste of this dish. The original recipe was called Paleo Pulled Pork 3 Ways. Although I didn’t plan on it, I ended up making one of the recommended leftover meals – Asian Pork and Slaw.

I have been spending a lot of my free time watching the Food Network. Specifically, I have been watching a lot of episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I don’t know what it is that draws me to this program, but I just can’t get enough of it. It is like I have an un-natural attraction to burgers 🙂
So, in watching an abundant amount of this program, I have come to realize that anyone with an oven and a few hours to spare can make delicious pulled pork. I always thought that I had to have a smoker in order to make a proper pulled pork, but a lot of the restaurants on this program dry rub their pork shoulder and roast it in the oven for hours. It looks like it comes out tender, juicy and fully shred-able. Based on my viewing, I decided to give this a try.
I think that Friday night is the perfect pizza night! (well, actually I could likely eat pizza every day of the week, but Friday’s just seem a bit more right for pizza 🙂 )
If you have the time making your own pizza dough is pretty easy. Plus there are two obvious benefits:
- You know all the ingredients that are going into your pizza
- It is so much cheaper than having one delivered
I have mentioned on previous occasions that we eat a lot of vegetables. Quite often we take raw veggies in our lunch, but by the weekend, the thought of eating another piece of cauliflower or broccoli is not that appealing. (*Note – The exception to this statement is the awesomeness of Cauliflower Pizza) 🙂
Since we are overly familiar with the cauliflower pizza, I wanted to figure out another way to incorporate vegetables into our weekend fare. As I was sitting on the couch, scouring through cookbooks and cooking magazines, it came to me! It was like an epiphany struck me through the open blinds of the living room window. Cauliflower Broccoli Balls! This was going to be amazing.
The role of today’s guest food blogger will once again be played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.
Super Bowl Sunday™ is this weekend and for many (read: Connie), what is on the menu shares equal, if not greater importance, with what is on the television.
If you’re not a fan of football, chances are all this talk about pigskin leading up to the big game has conjured up images of bacon frying away in the pan. OK, perhaps that only happens in our house…
This year, though, it was supposed to be no contest; food was going to play second fiddle.
A few weeks ago we were over at Kim and Ryan’s for an amazing dinner. Kim surprised Jamie with an über delicious Triple BerryCrumble for his birthday. As part of the menu for the evening, Kim made these delicious Spinach Balls. They were very tasty and we ate them all before dinner was served.
In fulfilling my New Years Resolution, I grabbed a cookbook off the shelf in the search of a new chicken soup recipe. As I was turning the pages PB&J Chicken caught my eye. Did that just say what I think it did? When I flipped back I was surprised and intrigued. Peanut Butter and Jam Chicken? Well, I like peanut butter, I like jam and I like chicken, so I had to see how this was going to turn out!
Cold winter days really leave me craving comfort food. Now I know that it is the beginning of the year and I should be thinking of salads and raw vegetables to help balance out the extra food I ate over the holidays, but I am really in the mood for a sandwich!
