Pork Chop & Acorn Squash with Squash Seed Vinaigrette

February 23rd, 2013 · 2 Comments · Dinner, Easy, Fresh herbs, Pork, Side, Vegetable

Once again Bon Appetit is appealing to my taste buds with this recipe. Pork chops are a regular staple in my diet, I love acorn squash, AND simple recipes! Although I’ve never been a huge fan of cilantro, it was perfect in this recipe, really complimenting the flavour of the squash seeds, I actually found […]

Rigatoni with Spicy Ground Turkey Ragu

February 17th, 2013 · 4 Comments · Dinner, Pork, Turkey

A dedicated Bon Appetit subscriber (and recipe maker), it wasn’t until last month (when I saw foodie friend Dan’s Goodside’s pork chop) that I noticed they encourage you to “Cook the Cover” and then feature some of the recipes. Given how delicious their February cover looked, I had to give it a go! I adapted […]

Herb Rubbed Pork & Salsa Verde Sandwich

February 1st, 2013 · 3 Comments · left overs, Pork, Sandwich

After making the Herb Rubbed Pork Loin the other week, in the spirit of Meat & Bread I felt obligated to make a sandwich with the leftovers! Unfortunately, I only made the pork loin to test out the spice blend and didn’t have any crackling for the sandwich! Regardless, this was a pretty tasty sandwich, […]

Purple Cabbage & Apple Slaw

January 22nd, 2013 · 1 Comment · Dinner, Pork, Salad, Sandwich, Side, Vegetable

To go along with the pulled pork Carlene was making for our Sunday family supper, I wanted a bright, tangy slaw to contrast the rich, smokey pulled pork flavour. With that idea in mind, I went with a cabbage/apple slaw, and started mixing in ingredients until I got what I was looking for!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

January 22nd, 2013 · 4 Comments · Easy, left overs, Pork

After a perfect afternoon of ice fishing (okay well not perfect-perfect, because we didn’t even get a single bite and almost hit a deer with the truck – literally missing it by centimeters, but it was perfect in the sense that we got to spend some time enjoying the great Canadian outdoors)…. okay back on […]

Italian Salsa Verde

January 19th, 2013 · 3 Comments · Appetizer, Bread, Condiment, Fresh herbs

As part of my recipe testing for the Meat & Bread Porchetta that i’m planning on making in the near future, I needed to try out an Italian Salsa Verde. Instead of following the salsa verde on I am a Food Blog, I decided to go with a more traditional version and slightly modified a […]

Herb Rubbed Pork Loin

January 19th, 2013 · 4 Comments · Dinner, Easy, Fresh herbs, Pork

I have been dreaming about making Porchetta like the one from Vancouver’s Meat & Bread (an amazingly good sandwich shop), but before I bought all the ingredients, I wanted to test this recipe first. After modifying it a bit for a small pork loin, I can happily say the seasoning is definitely similar to Meat […]

Apple Juice Brined Pork Chops

October 21st, 2012 · 1 Comment · Barbecue, Dinner, Grilled, Pork

While I’m an avid fan of pork chops, I can still fall victim to the common problem of overcooking them! Fortunately this is where brining comes into play. Having never actually brined something, I was looking forward to the results and decided to go with a fairly simple brine.

BBQ Pork Tenderloin

May 1st, 2012 · No Comments · Barbecue, Dinner, Pork

Okay BS’ers…. I have something to confess….I’ve never BBQ’d before. Yup, that’s right. Never turned on a BBQ, never put food on a BBQ, never turned off a BBQ. Yet have eaten tons of food cooked on a BBQ. Why you ask? That’s always been Bob or my Dad’s job. So welcome to my first […]

Dumpling Vermicelli

After making the Pan-Fried Dumplings and having more filling then wonton wrappers I needed to make something with the leftover filling, so I settled on vermicelli!
