    Chinese Pulled Pork

    Chinese Pulled Pork When I first made my Chinese pulled pork, Ian about died from happiness. It takes an American classic – pulled pork – and has an Asian twist by cooking the meat in traditional Asian ingredients. While the meat is great in a wrap, on a sandwich, or in a salad, it’s also great just eaten as is. I highly suggest topping it with my slaw with miso dressing. This recipe is bound to impress. I promise.   Print Recipe: Chinese Pulled Pork Pulled pork with an Asian spin! This meat is great for sandwiches, in quesadillas, on salads, or eaten as is. Topped with slaw and it's…

    The Best Brownie Recipe

    The Best Brownie Recipe I can confidently say this is the best brownie recipe.  I can’t tell you how many brownie recipes I’ve tested.  I’ve made Ina Garten’s brownies several times, and they are tasty but don’t have that “WOW” factor. Since brownies are my husband’s favorite dessert, it became my mission to develop a brownie that he gave two thumbs up to.  You know what I got after baking these?  Two thumbs up and an “Oh God these are good!”  Make these brownies for your partner, children, friends, or just yourself.  They are gooey, slightly fudgey, and deep with chocolate flavor.

    Shredded Beef Sandwiches

    Shredded Beef Sandwiches Oh how I love these shredded beef sandwiches. Inspired by Ree Drummond’s drip beef sandwiches, they are truly one of the easiest and most satisfying meals. You may think that adding an entire jar of pepperonis would make the beef spicy, but it doesn’t. The cooking process takes all of the heat out of the peppers. I suggest making these on a Sunday so you can enjoy the leftovers throughout the week. Print Recipe: Shredded Beef Sandwiches One of the most satisfying and easy recipes you'll ever make! Tender beef that is full of flavor. Don't worry the peppers don't make the beef spicy! They just add…

    The Best Tomato Sauce

    The Best Tomato Sauce I have officially made the best tomato sauce.  It is ridiculously simple and ridiculously tasty.  I adapted the recipe from Smitten Kitchen by adding a parmesan rind, cayenne, and sugar.  But if you would rather keep it even simpler, the additions are optional. You may question how a dish with such few ingredients could be considered the best, but it truly is.  I promise. Print Recipe: The Best Tomato Sauce One of the easiest recipes I've ever written! An added bonus? It's finger licking good. Seriously. If my waist line would allow it, I would make and eat this pasta sauce at least once a week.…

    Spaghetti and Meatballs with Ricotta

    Spaghetti and Meatballs with Ricotta If I could choose a last meal it would be spaghetti and meatballs.  The key to this recipe is the ricotta.  It makes the tomato sauce creamy and delectable.  These meatballs are also better than most because of the fresh herbs.  While this recipe takes time, it is worthwhile.  I promise. Print Recipe: Spaghetti and Meatballs with Ricotta Spaghetti and meatballs is one of my all time favorite dishes. Yes, it some prep/cook time, but it's completely worth it.
