Crockpot Sweet and Tangy Asian Meatballs


These crockpot sweet and tangy Asian meatballs are all about pork. I don't know about you but I love pork meatballs. I love beef meatballs too, heck who am I kidding, I love all meatballs, but pork meatballs hold a special place in my heart. It's probably because of the fat. They are juicier than any other meatballs and pack a lot more flavor. But these meatballs here are super special. I loaded them up with lots of garlic, lots of green onions and ginger. A bit different from my usual … [Read more...]

Perfect Pulled Pork

pulled pork1

Pulled Pork! Yep, I can honestly say we've never had it before until a couple years ago, when my husband and I were watching Diners, Drive-inns, and Dives on the food network channel and we saw a show where they showed these juicy and sinful pulled pork sandwiches. We knew we had to try it, we love pork, so pulled pork has got to be amazing.  So we did and, yes it was amazing. Pulled pork must be an American thing because I can't say I've ever seen it at a restaurant either or anywhere else. … [Read more...]

Roasted Garlic and Tomato Soup

roasted garlic and tomato soup-1-3

I have been sick now for a few days with the flu. Pretty depressing. But it's times like this when I remember soups. There's nothing better to have than a warm soup with some cheesy bread when you have the flu. OK, so maybe the cheesy bread doesn't really help with the flu, but it goes great with this roasted garlic and tomato soup. And I love cheesy bread, dipped in this soup it's to die for. But enough about the bread, the star of this show here is the soup, after all. It's probably one … [Read more...]

Parmesan Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Parmesan Garlic Roasted Potatoes-1-4

I can't deny that one of my favorite sides are roasted potatoes. I've made roasted potatoes so many different ways,  I just like different spices and flavors, so I'll try and put just about everything on potatoes. To me, roasted potatoes are such a comfort food. So I've made roasted potatoes with garlic sauce before or I've made Parmesan roasted potatoes but I've never combined the two flavors together. Until now! And I need to tell you these potatoes are to die for. They are so goooooood! … [Read more...]

Lamb Souvlaki

lamb souvlaki-1-4

This recipe is for the true meat lover. Or not! Let me start by saying that I don't really like lamb. Seriously! Until I made this lamb souvlaki! I. Love. This. Lamb. What's so special about this lamb, you ask? It's simple. I marinated this lamb in this totally greek marinade for 24 hours. I love greek flavors, so my marinade was simple, olive oil, lots of fresh lemon juice, salt, pepper, oregano, garlic, onion and a little bit of Emeril's Essence. Well after 24 hours, the meat was infused … [Read more...]

Lahmacun or Turkish Meat Pies

turkish pies-1-4

As I'm sitting here writing this post I salivate just looking at these pictures and wish there were a couple more of these pies left. I had these for the first time years ago in Michigan from an Arabic bakery and ever since then I was hooked. I love these types of pies. Lahmacun simply means meat with dough and it's a round, very thin piece of dough, much thinner than pizza, topped with minced meat, usually beef or lamb, and vegetables and herbs. They are then baked and usually served … [Read more...]

Chicken in 40 Cloves of Garlic


Before you run off because the thought of 40 cloves or garlic scares you, hold on a second. Give me a chance to explain because I thought the same as you.
