Pork

Or should I say Pork Tenderloin “Wellington,” because it’s kind of like a traditional “wellington” except not at all, really. Confused? Well you should be! Ha, just kidding. Seriously though, the part where the pork tenderloin is not beef and where it is not being wrapped in puff pastry makes it not a “wellington,” BUT …

So who is ready for football season to begin?! I know that I have been waiting for this time ever since the season ended last year! Football is kind of a big deal in my family. My parents have always been diehard Steelers’ fans (as am I) when it comes to professional football, and huge …

  I find that I come up with the best snacks when I have a bunch of food in the fridge I need to get rid of. These skillet nachos just happen to be a perfect solution to this little problem. I had half of a pork shoulder I needed to use up. — If …

I really like sandwiches for tailgating. I especially like the mini versions of sandwiches. This gives your guests the chance to chow …

  So it begins. I may have mentioned yesterday that I slow-cooked a pork shoulder roast on Sunday, so we will officially be eating pork for the next week. I mean there’s only two of us and this roast was over 7 pounds! It’s really horrible of me to complain though. The pork came out …

  Baked beans have certainly grown on me over time. When I was small, I would do everything in my power to not touch the stuff, but with age I gained some wisdom along the way; and I finally discovered the beauty that is the baked bean. I love love love this recipe, and I’m …
