A newly published study tallies the hidden cost of something we've been watching for years: The packaging commonly used in meats may be causing serious health problems. This report finds the chemicals used in meat packaging may conservatively cause over 1.5 BILLION dollars of damage every year in the European Union.

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, pork chop, chicken breast

With the snow on the way, we thought a nice summer scene would go nicely with the summer salad. This recipe works equally well with pork chops or chicken breasts. Although the ingredient list looks long, it is so easy to prepare. Everything can be made ahead of time which makes it a great dish for entertaining.



Mushroom Squash Risotto

Posted by Josh King | Tags: sides, recipes, soup

We love vegetarian meals. Rice isn’t something we should eat all the time for a wide range of reasons, but there nothing like a REAL risotto with Arborio rice. Strictly speaking this dish isn’t vegetarian since a homemade broth is essential to the flavor. The broth also adds electrolytes and helps cushion the onslaught of carbs the rice throws at us. This meal takes time to do it right, but it is easy. Just get a glass of wine and have a nice conversation.

This has been a favorite recipe of ours for a good 10 years … but we never realized until now that it would be PERFECT with ground pork! We’ve always made it with chicken or as a vegetarian dish but with the pork it has just now reached its full potential. This is a quick and easy weeknight meal – enjoy!
