Oven Roasted Pulled Pork

Oven Roasted Pulled Pork

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.

Breakfast T.A.B.L.E.

I was wandering around the grocery store when a fabulous idea struck me!  A BLT Breakfast sandwich!!  Now I know what you are thinking, “Connie, you did not invent the BLT Breakfast sandwich.”  I know, I know, they are available at every coffee and doughnut shop in every city, but I saw inspiration when I glanced at a beautiful head of Boston leaf lettuce and from that small glance, a new breakfast was born (at least in our home).

Pizza Bianca

This is actually the very first recipe that I ever made from America’s Test Kitchen (ATK). I had purchased one of their magazines during a grocery store outing, and while I was flipping through the pages, a photo of a gorgeous pizza crust caught my attention.

Even though the directions for this recipe are lengthy, it is actually very easy to make. There is just something magical about making bread. You throw some pretty basic ingredients together, and they just grow into something beautiful and delicious.

Caramelized Onions

I am a bit of a conundrum.  When we are out at a restaurant and I order a burger, I always ask for no onions, but then proceed to order a side of onion rings!  Weird, right?   This brings me to today’s topic, Caramelized Onions.  The flavour of the onion transforms right before your eyes when you cook them slowly and add a few extra ingredients to help bring out their natural sweetness.

Sesame Pulled Pork Sandwiches

BBQ season is just around the corner, so it is time to think of sweet and sticky sauces and messy sandwiches!

As I have mentioned before, just because we live in an apartment and don’t have a BBQ, doesn’t mean that we have to give up on the deliciousness of BBQ, we just have to improvise.

Ham-Burr-ger Helper

The role of today’s guest food blogger is played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.

Shortly after Connie launched A Ruby Reduction, I briefly entertained the thought of creating a companion blog focused entirely on the hamburger.

It seemed like a splendid idea at first … until I began to realize that in order to maintain such a site, I’d have to eat an (almost) ungodly number of burgers (and buns) on a regular basis.

Hey, I love hamburgers, but a man’s got his limits.

Pretzel Burger Buns

It started out as any other Sunday.  Jamie and I were planning out our meals for the week, and we were getting ready to spend another fabulous day in the kitchen.  Then Jamie made a suggestion to make some home-made hamburgers for dinner.  This was a great idea, since we haven’t had home-made burgers since Super Bowl Sunday when Jamie whipped up a batch of sliders.

Spicy Pulled Chicken Sandwich

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!

Country Tea Biscuits

One of the benefits of growing up in the country is that we never learned of the horrors of white flour and carbohydrates until much later in life 🙂

Farmhouse White Bread

One of my fondest food memories of my Grandma is her Homemade White Bread!  My Grandma used to make dozens of loaves at a time and distribute them among the family.  When I would step off the school bus I could smell the bread from the driveway!  Yummy!  Warm, homemade white bread topped with butter and brown sugar…delicious.  It is also fabulous toasted with butter.
