  Pigs are delicious as bacon or pork chops but have you ever thought they could also taste sweet and look like candy? They can with this tradition which uses sweet pigs made of Holiday candy! The Peppermint Pig is a popular Christmas tradition in which...

  Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, believe it or not, but don’t worry, fellas! If you’ve got a girlfriend (and if she’s anything like me!), chances are she wants two things for the special day: a set of nice, beautiful roses, and something tasty to eat. Well… what if I told you that there was a way that you could give her both of those things at once? And no, I’m not talking about having her eat the roses, silly…   I’m of course talking about a BACON BOUQUET! That’s right – a bouquet of what looks like roses, but instead of being actual flowers and plants, well, it’s bacon! What’s not to love about that?  

A PIG IN A POT, mmmm good!

 

Boneless pork chops braised in a crockpot is actually what I’m talking about.

  The slow cooking of meat has been around since the Stone Age. Cave men realized that by slow cooking meat and fibrous roots they became tender and were easier to eat. The heat broke down the collagen in the muscle to tenderize the meat. Of course, being cavemen and not Alton Brown, they didn’t understand the science behind this.   Later cooks and chefs realized that by first searing the meat and then slow cooking it in a liquid tenderized the meat and added more flavor. The flavor depended on the spices and the liquid used for the braising.
Oprah seems to be the bearer of great news for a lot of people - she mentions a book on her show, and the next week it becomes a New York Times bestseller. She drops a note about a certain TV show or food, and it becomes the must-watch or must-make item of the month, making somebody in that business a very happy person.   While I sit here and dream that maybe one day Oprah will do the same thing for my blog, there is somebody in the piggy space of the world who Oprah has mentioned, and has made pretty famous and important almost overnight: the people who created (get this) ORGANIC PIG PAJAMAS!     The lady who created these pig-inspired pajamas was featured on Oprah a while back, in addition to having a blog and everything on her own. Business must be pretty good, too, because the price for a set of piggy pajamas is pretty steep; $89.95, to be exact. I don't know if I have the kind of money to shell out for piggy pajamas, but... oh, who am I kidding? If it has to do with pigs, I'm probably going to buy it!  

  You ever get one of those dishes that just makes your mouth water whenever you think about it?  Today, I've been craving Vietnamese pork chops.  Here's a great recipe I found of grilled lemongrass pork chops, so you can start salivating over it too.  The tang of the...
