Pork Tangerine Stir Fry with Chili Sauce

I saw Amanda had tried this recipe and decided since she had enjoyed it, I should give it a shot. You see, I saw this recipe in Bon Appetit and scanned over it and kinda shrugged my shoulders. Sometimes I need a bit of a nudge to try recipes out of my comfort zone. . […]

Chipotle Pork Cheeseburger

I’m still here, I promise – things are just busier than normal and I’m a bit distracted and preoccupied with other things. I will let everyone know once the baby gets here (and say a prayer for me that it will happen this weekend, please?)! All I have to share today is a recipe I […]

Chorizo, Poblano, and Yam Fajitas with Lime-Marinated Red Onions

This is another of those crazy cheap meals that Bon Appetit featured in their January issue. This recipe stuck out at me because it was odd. Very odd. Who has ever had fajitas with chorizo and yams? Weird. Well, it’s delicious. Each person that had it thought at first bite that it was a bit […]
