Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Last weekend we invited friends over for our first barbecue of the season.  Except I was really in the mood for pulled pork, and ended up planning a whole menu that did not involve turning on the grill – oops!  But we did still enjoy our meal outside, and the nice thing about this pulledRead More

Simple Beef Meatballs with Sauce

Simple Beef Meatballs with Sauce

Over the past few years I have tried to only buy 100% grass-fed beef, which is not only the most nutritious kind of beef, but the best for the environment and the cows who get to live their lives on pasture eating the food that they were meant to eat instead of confined to aRead More

Moroccan Lamb Stew

Moroccan Lamb Stew

This post was originally published on June 1, 2010. Last time I ordered meat from my CSA, I decided to branch out a bit from my typical beef and poultry selection and bought two kinds of lamb – stew pieces and a lamb leg steak.  The steak is still in the freezer waiting for theRead MoreRead More

Barbecue Turkey Burgers

Barbecue Turkey Burgers

Sorry it’s taken me until mid-August to post this recipe, but at least it’s in time for your Labor Day barbecue!  I am a big fan of a traditional hamburger made with grass fed ground beef, but every once in a while I like to switch things up and use turkey.  I’ve found, however, thatRead More

Baked Ziti

I have exciting news – my little munchkin, who for months and months has rejected anything with tomato sauce, has finally started warming up!  This has changed my life, as she will now eat pizza with us, and also opens up more options in terms of pasta dishes I can make since I don’t necessarilyRead More

Cheesy Burgers and Baked Potato Chips

Cheesy Burgers and Baked Potato Chips

Last week we had a bit of a heat spell in NYC – temps well into the 80’s in April were a bit unexpected, and not altogether welcome given that our building has yet to turn on the air conditioning!  But it did put us in the mindset that summer is coming, which meant thatRead More

Marinated Flank Steak

Marinated Flank Steak

When hubby and I first met, he did not eat chocolate or red meat.  Given that these were two of the most important staples in my diet at the time, I decided these food restrictions made us incompatible and told him at least one would have to change if our relationship were to succeed.  I’mRead More

Turkey Meatloaf Mini-Bites Revisited

After a week of feeding the munchkin french toast and scrambled eggs for dinner, I decided it’s time to restock my freezer with some quick, go-to meals.  I’ve also been trying to figure out what to make with the ground turkey in the freezer and realized that my Turkey Meatloaf Mini-Bites would be perfect!  The only problemRead More

Beef Stew

Beef Stew

Beef stew is one of my favorite winter meals.  Every year I make it once or twice when I’m in the mood for something really comforting, and so in preparation for this craving I ordered grass-fed stew beef the last time I was stocking up on meat from my CSA.  Last week, as I wasRead More
