Crockpot Parmesan Honey Pork Roast


I missed my crockpot! I haven't used it in a few weeks and every time I'm in the kitchen and I see it on the counter, it makes me feel guilty. How can a crockpot make me feel guilty? So I promised it that this weekend I was going to give it a good use. And I did! You may think that Parmesan and honey might be a weird combination, and it might be, but there's also soy sauce in there, basil, garlic powder and salt, so when you mix it all together, somehow it works. And when you cook the pork … [Read more...]

Classic French Cassoulet


It's February, Valentine's Day month. Time for sweets, time for flowers, time for love. And I love this cassoulet. Forget the fancy French name. Cassoulet simply means casserole, so this is basically a French casserole with beans, pork and chicken. My kind of comfort food. But first of all I'm glad it's February. Not that I celebrate Valentine's day or anything, because I don't believe in it, but because it's my birthday month. Honestly I hate the thought of getting older, though really I … [Read more...]

Easy Meatloaf


This easy meatloaf recipe here is the only one you will ever need. But first of all I can't believe it's 2014 already, but I have a feeling it's going to be a great year, though not a great winter. It's been a long winter already and I try not to think about it because it literally depresses me. We have probably another good 4 to 5 months of winter left here in Calgary, and no I'm not kidding, but we have had snow in June and July here. Go figure. Why do I live here again? Oh because it's sunny … [Read more...]

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...]

Crockpot Country Sausage and Bean Soup


I finally did it! I finally put up my Christmas tree. It's gorgeous! I forgot to take a picture of it to post it here but I will. I know some of you may think it's early but not for me.

I was baking for you all yesterday all day long and have got a collection of amazing and delicious cookies … [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...]

Baked Breakfast Taquitos

baked breakfast taquitos-1-2

I'm in love with these taquitos. They're so good, I can't stop eating them. I could have them any time of the day! Seriously. A taquito literally means small taco. I even love the name, taquito. It sounds so cool. Taquitos are a Mexican food dish consisting of a small rolled up tortilla with some sort of filling such as beef, chicken and cheese. My taquitos are the breakfast kind, so they are filled with eggs, sausage, some peppers and of course some cheddar cheese. Taquitos are also … [Read more...]

Olive Stew With Pork

olive stew-1-4

Before I give you details about this recipe I must give credit where credit is due. This recipe was completely made by my husband. This is one of his favorite dishes. Now you may think this recipe is quite strange, in fact I did when my husband first told me about this dish a few years ago. It is a Romanian dish that is common there but usually instead of pork, it's made with beef tongue. Yep, this is probably where I'll lose you. This is where I almost gave up on this recipe. My mother in … [Read more...]
