Homemade pizza is one of my favorite ways to feed a crowd. This particular pizza combines two of my favorite things: bacon and cheese. Think of it as a mouthwatering take on a BLT in pizza form.

What’s better than a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich? How about a BLT loaded with thick-cut bacon, paper-thin prosciutto and peppery watercress—then slathered with thick, tangy homemade mayonnaise? Here’s how to build a nice, fat sandwich that not only tastes great, but is designed to stay together when you eat it. Now, you’re going to […]bacon, mayonaisse, prosciutto, tomato, watercress
This is a fabulous way to feed a crowd on a budget. Pork shoulder is a tough cut of meat, so it’s generally on the cheaper side. (In fact, this is the same cut of meat that’s often used to make pulled pork.) My pork roast was about 8.5 lbs. and was only 99 cents/lb. […]braising, Pasta & starch, pork, tomato
This dip was a hit this weekend when we had folks over to watch the fight. I served it as one of the companions to my Crispy Sesame Chicken Nibbles.

This is a rich and hearty sauce that you can make in just about the amount of time it takes to boil a pound of orecchiette. Honest. Italian for “little ears,” orecchiette are those nickel-sized round noodles that look like tiny hats or flying saucers. Just because it’s a quick sauce doesn’t mean it’s short […]ground beef, ground pork, how to make a ragout, how to make pasta sauce, meat sauce, pasta sauce, ragout, spices, tomato
This is another incidence of me combining homemade bread with pork products. If it happens again, I might just have a problem. I can admit that. While it’s not necessarily a fast thing to cook (you need a few hours to let your dough rise), this pizza is really easy to make. It feeds a […]baking, pizza, sausage, tomato
