Pancetta Leek Risotto

Rain… Sometimes we spend countless hours praying and hoping for just a drop to wet our dry, dry soil. Well, for the past couple of weeks we’ve received plenty and it’s not stopping anytime soon. In fact you may have seen Texas on the news the past couple of days for flooding, sinkholes and...

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

First off thank you for the kind words to my recent post on the BIG News on the Homefront! We are definitely excited about our little arrival in November. Most of the time I’m dreaming up twists to classic recipes or trying out something completely new to me. Funny thing is I spend most...

10 minutes
