Easy, Slow-Cooked Oxtail Stew

Add to Flipboard Magazine. We recently purchased a quarter of a grass-fed cow. It was a really great, affordable (well, per pound at least) way to stock our freezer with grass-fed beef, but we ended up with a lot of odd bits that I’ve never cooked before! I actually didn’t know what the oxtails were. […]

A Simple Porchetta Recipe

  My friend Taylor who blogs at English 101 gave me this porchetta recipe. It pretty much blew my mind so I asked her if I could put it on my blog because I wanted the world to have it. She originally suggested using a whole ham (referring to the cut of meat, not a cured ham), but […]

Darling Baby’s Lunch 10-9-13

It’s raining where I live today, something that almost NEVER happens.  I’m staying home with Darling Baby who I suspect is trying to pop some molars. When he’s teething I give him bigger hunks of food like half an apple instead of apple slices. I refrigerate it and then just let him gnaw away. We’re running low […]
