BBQ Chicken, Bacon, and Pineapple Pizza (gluten free)

Santa brought me several bags of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free, Dairy Free Pizza Crust mix this past Christmas.  Evidently Santa not only knows when you’ve been bad or good, but he also is aware when you have been suffering a serious craving for pizza!  Since I haven’t experimented with making my own gluten-free crust from… Continue reading BBQ Chicken, Bacon, and Pineapple Pizza (gluten free)

Pork Chops with Sweet Potato and Fennel Hash

Pork chops are so easy.  They cook up quickly without much fuss, which makes them great for mid-week dinners.  I especially like pork paired with something that has a little sweetness.  Fruits like apples, cherries, and apricots are clear winners – but so are the sugars from slowly caramelized fennel, onion, and sweet potatoes in… Continue reading Pork Chops with Sweet Potato and Fennel Hash

Jamison and Bill Jamison) One of our favorite places to eat in Santa Fe is Maria’s New Mexican Kitchen.  Maria’s is primarily noted for their VAST selection of margaritas crafted for every tequila out there.  In fact… Continue reading New Mexico Carne Adovada

Pork Roast with Apple and Bacon Stuffing

Modified from Food Network Recipe by Paula Deen Finally, the first day of fall!  My favorite time of the year, but it’s hard to pick a single reason why I love fall so much.  It’s not simply the demise of summer, with its heat, humidity, bugs and glaring, harsh sunlight.  The cooler temperatures, beautiful colors… Continue reading Pork Roast with Apple and Bacon Stuffing

BLT Salad

Every summer for as long as I remember, my favorite use of home-grown tomatoes was a bacon and tomato sandwich.  I never was too big on the idea of putting lettuce on it, because tomatoes and bacon seemed to be enough!  There was great anticipation for the first sandwich.  Two slices of bread, a slathering… Continue reading BLT Salad

Lime-Curry Pork Skewers

We enjoyed the chicken satay so much last week, we decided to skewer some pork tenderloin!  The Lime-Curry marinade was wonderful with the pork tenderloin, adding multiple layers of spicy flavors to what tends to be a relatively bland-tasting cut of meat.  The recipe for this marinade was inspired by an Epicurious/Gourmet recipe, “Grilled Lime-Curry-Rubbed… Continue reading Lime-Curry Pork Skewers

My Meatloaf

Everyone seems to have a meatloaf recipe – perhaps one handed down through the family, the meatloaf that grandma used to make.  It may be blasphemous to say this, but I have no fond “meatloaf memories” from my childhood.  I know my mother made a meatloaf, but other than remembering that I like the crusty… Continue reading My Meatloaf

Veal Saltimbocca

We are huge fans of used-book and thrift stores, and James has an eagle-eye for spotting treasures of any sort.  A few weeks ago he brought a unique book home – The Complete Round-The-World Meat Cookbook. by Myra Waldo.  Published in 1967, it promoted “unusual and classic meat recipes for all cuts of meat from… Continue reading Veal Saltimbocca

Ham with Candied Orange Glaze

Ham Ham Ham Ham (Glorious Ham)!  Ham is all over the place!  For many people, a glazed ham is the centerpiece of an Easter dinner.  Consequently, when I went to the grocery on April 23rd, the meat case was piled high with hams…and they were on sale!  I don’t know why we don’t have ham… Continue reading Ham with Candied Orange Glaze

Smoked Pork Butt

BBQ!  There’s not too much I can say about making pulled pork – there’s a little bit of preparation time, some variation in ingredients, and the rest is up to the quality of the pork shoulder roast (Boston butt) and how good your smoker is.  Food and Fire has a variety of instructions for pulled… Continue reading Smoked Pork Butt

Stuffed Pork Loin

Pork loin, it can be such a problem-child!  Unless you’re lucky enough to have good access to meat from heritage breeds, most of the pork available is too lean and can end up being dry and flavorless after roasting.  There’s a couple of ways to help this – brining, and stuffing to add moisture.  Before… Continue reading Stuffed Pork Loin

Chipotle-Lime Marinated Pork Kebabs

It was one of those first days of near-spring when it felt great to be outdoors.  Sunny, but with enough chill in the air to sit around the chiminea on the patio and indulge in some crossword puzzles while James stoked the fire with pinon wood, supplemented by fallen branches from the yard.  It was… Continue reading Chipotle-Lime Marinated Pork Kebabs
