Smokey Pulled Pork Enchiladas Smokey Pulled Pork Enchiladas were Patti’s brainstorm after Ken came home with a huge piece of pork. Ken had lots of great ideas, but Patti wanted Mexican and we both love enchiladas. With Ken’s famous smoked pulled pork and just a few other ingredients we made a great meal with lots […]

Cranberry Apple Pork Loin We love our friends and fans and had to laugh because we got our first request this week for a Christmas dinner idea. Our Cranberry Apple Pork Loin happily was just what they were looking for. Every month Ken buys a giant boneless pork loin and we come up with new […]

Hammy Mac & Cheese
