Miss Piggy is the quintessential icon of glamorous indulgence…or so she thought lol. When creating this dish I couldn’t help but think of her as I cooked the pork and envisioned the final product. Ok, so maybe that wouldn’t be what she’d eat but it sure is what I like. The crazy flavour of pulled pork really just goes with almost anything and everything. It takes the most boring dish to decadent just by adding this one simple ingredient.
Well that’s a wrap! Halloween is over and we now have to wait a whole year again. Today’s blog isn’t going to be a long one…tired, tired, tired! The adult Halloween party was last night and what a blast it was. It’s an annual event put on by great friends at a local Resto/Bar and we are definitely a wild group of Halloweeners…or maybe just weeners…not sure! Either way it was FUN…but feeling it a bit today! I’m very grateful for daylight savings time today as well!!! Love that extra hour. 🙂 We had snow here yesterday so I’ve included a few pictures of our first snow fall here in Toronto, a picture of us from the party last night and the beautiful day we woke up to. Mother nature, you always amaze me. . The mix of the snow with the beautiful colourful leaves is almost magical. One of my daughters felt compelled to go out and build a teeny snowman. I’m getting very excited for ski season!!
I’ve recently found my confidence with deep frying at home. As a (mostly) healthy eater I’ve never felt as compelled as some to over come the fear of, well frankly, of a grease fire! Well to my surprise it really isn’t that hard!
Like a lot of Mom’s I struggle with what to send to school for lunch! My teenage daughter loves salads in all varieties but they never seem to hold up by lunch time. This has been our savior…everything stays fresh (for days actually) and you can make so many different creations!
Well it’s Sunday! Another week has come and gone and we all survived here in my household. This recipe is really so simple to make and quick! It may not seem like a traditional Sunday brunch item but throw a poached egg on and you’re in breakfast heaven. I wasn’t feeling the egg today so that’s why it isn’t there. The combination of crunchy baguette and garlic-y golden mushrooms with prosciutto and truffles is so good that even the smell of it makes my mouth water!! The better the prosciutto the better the finished product. If you’re feeling even a little more extravagant, add shaved black or white truffles (might be a very pricey brunch at approx. $400 for a white truffle), but hey whatever works for you!
Potatoes, potatoes and more potatoes….let’s all be honest , it has to be one of people’s favorite things to eat in one form or another! There are so many ways to eat a potato; french fries, mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, new potatoes, potato salad, Gratin Potatoes, chips and the list goes on! Well if you didn’t already have a zillion ways to prepare yours at home, here’s another one. These were what came of a way to use up the leftover mashed potatoes from our Thanksgiving dinner. It’s kinda all about leftovers this week on the blog. But I hate to see good food go to waste and I also get sick of the same old, same old!
