Sweet and Sour Pork and an Anniversary!

I've been a food blog browser for a few years now, and always took pleasure in searching for new recipes to try. The problem? Keeping track of all of my links and modifications! A year ago, I decided to keep track of all of the new recipes I had tried and liked in blog form - 138 before this post.

Cashew Pork with Hoisin and Honey

It's summer. I'm not completely inspired to cook this month, especially since Dallas in August is akin to living on the surface of the sun. Or, at least what I expect it might be like. Still, I know that if I don't cook at least once a week, and ensure I blog it, I won't ever remember what I've made. So, we both benefit. Maybe. ;) I hope you like this dish. It's an easy mid-week meal that feeds at least four. Continue Reading
