It wasn’t that long ago I was drowning in diapers, bouncy balls and hot wheels. And lack of sleep. Wait, […]

Pork Tenderloin with Crimini Mushrooms and Port Sauce

Why is it that I never quite feel motivated to keep with my resolutions every January to stay healthy and exercise? Probably because it is cold and I have a rotation of kids home sick for a variety of ailments. This year was no different. Even worse as I was home sick with a variety […]

Asian Fusion Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos

The kids this week are enjoying their Spring Break. Of course, I use the term “enjoying” very loosely. It certainly isn’t as exciting as their last break back in February, where the hubby and I threw caution (and our wallets) into the wind and whisked the family to the Big Island of Hawaii. I warned […]

Tons of Leftover Pulled Pork Recipes

My family loves pulled pork. It’s a staple in our menu because it’s delicious and  so easy to make in the slow cooker. It is also not a tedious meal because you can add any flavors you want to the sauce. When in a pinch, I go simple with store-bought bbq sauce. But when I’m […]

Orange Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwich

I’m down to the last giant bag of oranges from our visit to the orange grove. I’m feeling a little sad. My family and I have really enjoyed the freshly squeezed orange juice every day. And I’ve enjoyed baking and cooking with the oranges and trying them in everything. It’s to the point where no […]

What Do You Do When A Foodie Can’t Eat?

What Do You Do When A Foodie Can’t Eat?

It’s funny, but this subject came up during Camp Blogaway. Greg from Sippity Sup talked about when his mouth was wired shut and he couldn’t eat, what would he blog about? I didn’t think, listening to his story, that I would be facing a similar dilemma. No, my mouth isn’t wired shut. For the past […]

Resolutions & A Pork Roast

Resolutions & A Pork Roast

It could be bronchitis. It could be whooping cough. It could be a sinus infection. This was the most ambiguous diagnosis I ever got! Or never got?? Whatever the case, I’m hoping this endless cough will disappear. Last night, the hubby and I kept each other up with the loving sounds of our hacking and […]

Pork Milanese

Maybe it’s the summer bug, maybe I’m just tired, or maybe it’s just being a mom of three that I find myself dreading the dinner hour. It looms there in the morning when I wake up. “Laura, defrost some of that great meat that you bought on sale sitting in the freezer.” I always convince […]
