Kentucky Hot Brown

We recently tried our hand at making this remarkable dish called Kentucky Hot Brown. A traditional American hot sammich originally created at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY back in the day, 1926. The Hot Brown is basically an open faced hot sandwich consisting of turkey, bacon and tomato, covered in a Mornay sauce, then baked or broiled until everything is hot, bubbly, crispy and delicious. Perfect dish for a cast iron skillet.

Recently made a kicked up homemade ramen thing that turned out pretty tasty!  Just start with one of those cheap grocery store ramen packs and add some cut up green onions, sprouts, sriracha, lime, etc.

Outstanding homemade carnitas nachos!  Made with our slow cooked pork shoulder in the slow cooker.  So much you can do with this blank canvas of pork goodness.  My favorite usually being something Mexican inspired.
