Foods from the Past: Pork Dinners

Pork might just be my favorite protein.  And that’s not just because pork belly is a contender for my favorite cut of meat.  I love pork because it comes in so many tasty forms.  You’ve got pork chops, pulled pork, baby back ribs, short ribs, pork belly, bacon (which is just cured belly), jowl meat, … Continue reading

Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes

The Thanksgiving recipe series is finished, and I want to share a few more fall-themed recipes before the next holiday arrives.  Christmas is so close, but it really doesn’t feel like it yet in Charlottesville.  It’s gorgeously sunny and 60 degrees today, hardly the typical weather for mid-December.  It keeps me in the fall spirit … Continue reading

Grilled, Stuffed Trout in Foil
