Butternut Coconut Pork Curry

Recipes posted a year ago:

Another Sunday just passed – this one happened to be my only day off for the week, and was accompanied by decent weather (as in not raining all day).  Since it was my only opportunity in the past six days (and likely the next six days as well) to get anything done outside, I knew that I needed to take advantage of every minute I could.  At the same time, we had Karen’s parents coming over for dinner – so I needed to put something together that I could get started in the morning and forget about until right before it was time to eat.  In other words, it was a perfect day for the slow cooker!

Bacon and Beef Frittata

Recipes posted a year ago:

I got the inspiration for this recipe after talking with Adam at CrossFit Fort Vancouver.  We spend plenty of time talking about food as it is, of course, one of our favorite subjects.  I love to walk in and hear him say, ” We made (insert food dish here) last night and it was good!” I reply back excitedly, “Oh yeah?  How much of (insert meat, veggie, and/or spice here) did you put in?” His reply is ALWAYS, “well, we didn’t measure, we just threw together what sounded good. I brought some for my lunch. Want to try a bite?” I probably don’t need to tell you that my answer is ALWAYS a resounding, “Of course! Duh!” or something to that effect.  This gives me such a great feeling, not just the fact that I get to sample some food, but because experimenting, just throwing together what you think may taste great together, is a great measure of how far your own food knowledge has come.  Spending time in the kitchen has paid off.  Casey and I love to cook, it is true.  But, this honestly doesn’t seem to take as much time for us as it used to.  Yes, most of the time we are both in the kitchen cooking together which saves time and the more we learn, the more efficient we are.  Great food in less time.  Alas, you do not have to spend the time that we have.  Take advantage of our site.  We are happy to do the experimenting for you! I digress.

Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I was looking for a quick weeknight recipe to take advantage of the warmer weather we are finally starting to experience here in the Pacific Northwest.  Rather than fall back on the standby of using a pre-mixed herb blend from the spice drawer, I decided to try something using fresh ingredients instead.  The resulting lemon pepper marinade was great with pork chops, and would be equally tasty with chicken or fresh shrimp and scallops.

Ribs always remind me of summer barbecues.  I’m not a fan of your typical barbecue flavor, however.  I came up with this tasty combination for a barbecue sauce that did not disappoint.  This is some great stuff! I used rum, but you can  use water instead and it will still turn out great.  The alcohol evaporates out as the sauce simmers.  I baked the ribs in the oven, but they can also be grilled and personally, the next time I make these I am going to slow cook them and the pork will fall right off the bone.

Fennel Rhubarb Pork Roast

Recipes posted a year ago:

Last weekend, with spring slowly trying to make an appearance around here, I had rhubarb on my mind.  And since we had our friends Sonya and Chris coming up for dinner, it was a perfect time to try something entirely new (we knew they’d be game for it).  We had a pork roast thawing, and the tangy character of rhubarb was a perfect pairing for the roast – along with a few other additions.

Simple Pork Roast

We recently took delivery of a heritage hog from April Joy Farm, and I wanted to cook one of the roasts using a recipe that would let the character of the meat shine, without a bunch of other flavors competing for center stage.  Here’s what I ended up with.

Pineapple Pork Steaks

I need to show off my newest apron.  This is from another pattern  and fabric I have had for a while and finally put my sewing machine to work.  It is nice to have a new one that can get all stained and dirty.  The other one I had is seeing a lot of use so it was time to have a couple to swap between!  Plus it is reversible so if one side gets too dirty I can turn it around.
