Pork, Swiss Chard and Potato Adobo

And it’s freezing again!  It’s below 0 with the windchill and I was almost blown away walking into work.  I literally had to freeze and stop moving in order to brace myself against the wind.

Even when I was reading the reviews of the restaurants, while most were overwhelmingly ... Read More »

Sausage and Fresh Tomato Pasta

Hi all! I’m guest posting over at Kristen’s blog, Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker.  She runs one of the largest and funnest (yay for making up words) improv challenges around.  She’s got some awesome looking recipes on her site (ahem – spam fried rice and yes I love that stuff) from entrees such as a Chili Cheese Bake and a ...
