I think the key to pulled pork is the rub! Massaging it into the pork and letting it sit for an hour or two or overnight is key. 421 more words

Addictive Corn Dip

This recipe came to me from my friend Greg and it is one of the most requested things that I make. I have written this post in my head at least a thousand times and I still don’t believe that it isn’t here, but friends and my own search can’t be wrong. 116 more words

Indian Feast

I am huge fan of Indian food and although it can be labor intensive, I am always so happy to have made the incredible meal. I rely on Madhur Jaffrey for most of my Indian meals but also have made most of the curries from the original Time-Life series from the 60’s or 70’s. 719 more words

Turbo Sauce and Carne Adovada

Turbo sauce is made from the dried red New Mexican chilies that you see used in ristras. My friend Jane made it in many variations (add a can of tomatoes, or orange juice or tequila) and it was so good that we would eat the first batch with chips before we used it  in the dinner recipe. 266 more words

This was the fourth course to my 5-course Friendsgiving party for 6 people.

A Victorian Halloween Party

Despite their reputation for straight-laced sobriety, the Victorians celebrated Halloween with great enthusiasm – and often with outright abandon.  Victorian Halloween parties were filled with fun, games, and spooky rituals, some of which still feature at Halloween parties today.  109 more words
