Crock Pot Shredded Pork

by Kerry on February 21, 2013 · 7 comments

Pulled pork is probably one of my favorite foods…. right after cheese, avocadoes, and brownies. Oh, and bacon. So really, it’s my second favorite pig product, but still very high on my list. I’ve made it in the crockpot a few times in the past, and I’m always left disappointed. I determined the culprit was using […]


Shepherd’s Pie

There are two ways to eat mashed potatoes: 1 ) on their own or 2) mixed up with everything else on the plate. I’m definitely a mashed potato mixer. If there are mashed potatoes on my plate, any other foods within reach risk being added to my forkful of mashed potatoes. Shepherd’s pie is made […]

One might even say it’s unnecessarily complicated. I’m happy to report that in my experience only mild cursing took place during […]

With Thanksgiving moments away, it’s the perfect time to make… lamb! I’ve seen nothing but pumpkin-themed posts on other food blogs for this entire month.
