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!

Pork chops with a summer salad and peanut dressing

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.
