Homemade hot cocoa is easy, healthier and tastes SO much better than pre-made mixes.



Make Your Own Organic Vanilla Extract

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, dessert, newsletter

Vanilla: One of the most loved flavors and perhaps the most artificially (and poorly) imitated. Real vanilla is also rather expensive. Making your own is easy and much less expensive than a $2.50 per ounce in the store. At that price, you can hardly afford to use enough to truly appreciate this amazing delicacy. Way better to simply make your own... trust me, your culinary life won't be the same.

The first night Betsy made this, Jack practically ate it with a spoon. He even used it as a salad dressing. Betsy thought this was taking it a little too far, but we both agree that it is the perfect summer accompaniment to any lighter meat or veggie.

This quick sausage works well for ground pork or beef and is a nice staple to add to your meal rotation. Works well with dried herbs, but obviously fresh would be nicer.

Rosemary, Olive and Lemon Chicken

This is a simple one-pot meal you can make with any bone-in chicken. It doubles as a great dish for entertaining because it doesn't take long to cook, so you can do the work before your guests arrive and just take it out of the oven when its time to eat.



Moroccan Ragout - Vegetarian

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, vegetarian, sides, vegan

Betsy always saves ideas for recipes that pile up when we don't have time to cook as much as we'd like. This one she kept around for years until we finally tried it out. We made a few modifications and really like how it turned out!

There is nothing like slow cooked - low temp sous vide pork. The problem is that it just isn't very smoky. Here is a great recipe to combine the best of BBQ and modern cooking techniques.

When we were sampling our pork at Lakewinds, everyone was asking for the recipe of the carnitas we were serving. The deli department made up the recipe, so I didn't know it... but I decided to tinker and make up my own adding a few twists -- turned out AMAZING!
