BlueCheeseBuffaloBurger

If you’re looking for a new spin on the basic burger, you’ve got to try a buffalo burger!  I’m not talking about a burger with buffalo sauce, I’m talking about Bison.  Although it’s not as widely available, bison meat is awesome and it is a leaner version of its beef cousin.  The best part is [...]

Cocoa Rub Pork Tenerloin

My latest cooking obsession has become meat rubs.  They are so easy and pack so much flavor!  If you’re into spices and you’ve got a cabinet jammed packed full of them, rubs are a good option when you’re just not sure what to do with that cut of meat.  I recently had a beautiful pork [...]

TomatoSauce

Every year I plant cherry tomatoes and Marglobe tomatoes which are an heirloom variety that are much larger in size.  The Marglobes take a lot longer to reach maturity but while I’m waiting for the big guys, I am always pleasantly surprised by the abundance of cherry tomatoes in my garden. These plants are serious [...]

ItalianPorkCutlets

Ok, so it’s been a while since I’ve posted a primal recipe.  Summer fun, birthday parties and travel have been taking over my life…in a good way.  In the meantime, my garden has been blooming with tomatoes, artichokes and eggplants…yay!  I came home from my recent trip to Boston to beautiful, ripe tomatoes and couldn’t [...]
