It’s a summer holiday weekend and in Alabama and that means barbeque.  And by barbeque, we mean pulled pork.   We spice it up with ribs and maybe some chicken, but pulled pork is where it’s at.  

The great thing about pulled pork is that it is inexpensive, reheats beautifully, feeds a crowd and pretty much everyone loves it.  Oh, and it’s gluten free if you use a gluten free barbeque sauce (which many are) and paleo in its natural state.  So Brooke can eat it with her salad and stay on her diet.

When I was growing up at the lake with my family, my grandmother always made ice cream.

There are fancy cooked creams and  whipped things in many ice cream recipes, but my absolute favorite was a light and almost fizzy ice cream that my Nanny made with store brand strawberry soda and condensed milk.

This recipe uses that same technique (which is dead easy) and a made in Alabama favorite, Grapico.   The little girls will adore the lilac color and the flavor is light and fun.

Have you started planning the Thanksgiving meal yet? Fall is definitely in the air, and both of these recipes will compliment your holiday table beautifully. The pear chutney is an aromatic delight, and a perfect pairing for your turkey, no matter how you prepare it. And for dessert, I suggest this scrumptious pumpkin Bundt cake with caramel drizzle. It’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and bon appétit!

Now that many of us have a bounty of fresh, juicy tomatoes, I thought it would be an excellent time to highlight a couple of wonderful recipes so we can serve them up! Nothing beats a tomato sandwich, of course, but these are excellent dinner options. The tomato pie is perfect for the peak of the tomato season, and the caprese salad skewers make an excellent (and quick to make) appetizer for pre-dinners or for backyard patio parties this summer.

 

Bon appétit!
