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 liquid in the recipe. Since food gives off a ton of liquid when cooked in a slow cooker, the pork always ended up swimming in liquid, which diluted all of the spices I added in the beginning. This is why I’ve never shared my crockpot pork recipe in the past… it just wasn’t anything special. [click to continue…]
I hope I live to see the day green salsa is as plentiful as the red stuff.
The only reason I ever entertain the thought of eating at Moe’s is because I love their salsa verde. Only recently have I found a jarred brand of tomatillo salsa that doesn’t suck (this stuff). Which, of course, means I’ve become obsessed. I go through at least one jar a week. [click to continue…]
Merry Christmas from your favorite cat lady. I’ll be back in 2013 with some healthy recipes. Maybe…
I’m not a huge fan of using the crock pot.
Don’t get me wrong, I do love the crock pot for chili, tough cuts of meat, and other foods that are meant to cook all day. And I do love how amazing the house smells while dinner is cooking in the crock pot. [click to continue…]
Yes, I have made yet another recipe using goat cheese.
It’s pretty clear where I stand on goat cheese, right? If not, see this, this, this or this. There has been a lot of goat cheese on this blog, and it will not stop making appearances anytime soon.
I’ve been making a healthy version of eggplant parmesan for years, and decided to modify it a bit to resemble lasagna. And of course, also add goat cheese. [click to continue…]
I always have the best of intentions when I buy vegetables.
Like this kale, for example. Lately kale has become my go-to leafy green, replacing spinach for the time being. So when I picked up a big bunch at the market earlier this week, I assumed I’d use it at some point.
But, I didn’t touch the kale…because I was too busy eating this cake for several days. [click to continue…]
