Continuing to cook. Continuing to try some of my pins. These little bursts of accomplishment make my brain smile. That is a good thing.
Here is what I've made lately:
Balsamic Honey Pulled Pork Sliders
Source: Better Homes & Gardens
Notes: Made these when some friends joined us for dinner. They seemed to be a hit. To me they seemed a bit too balsamic-y. Occasionally you'd get a very tangy, vinegar-y bite. They are also quite sweet. Coleslaw on top is a must to balance the sweet. The addition of Gherkins was also delish. Served these on Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, a trick I learned from my cousin. Bryce is already requesting these again - I'm looking for a recipe with less sugar. Maybe this? Do you have a good pulled pork recipe? Please leave a link.

Notes: I used softened vanilla ice cream and 1/2 a can of orange concentrate to make these. I was amazed at how Creamsicle like they tasted. However, the girls found them too tangy. Perhaps 1/3 can concentrate would have been better.
Parmesan Kale Salad with Raisins
Source: Eat. Drink. Smile.
Notes: YUM!! This is extremely tasty. The lemon juice does amazing things to the kale. I've made these numerous times and will continue to. Keeps really well 1-2 days in the fridge too. Word of warning, you will be left with kale pieces in your teeth after consuming!
Buffalo Chicken Salad

Notes: Love this. Have made it multiple times. I eat it over a bed of lettuce. You could also wrap it up in lettuce or a tortilla. Going to try Molly's modified Chicken Cordon Bleu soon.
