Smoked Pork Chops

Smoked Pork Chops are a great selection for dinner.  Why?  You might ask.  I’ll tell you why.  The Butcher has done all of the hard work for you and you will get all the credit.  That works for me every time!  I paired my Smoked Pork Chops with pork and sauerkraut, smashed garlic red potatoes […]

Oven Fried Chicken

This is such a gloomy day in May. I am feeling the need for some comfort food. I don’t have to go too far to feel the “love” when I make oven fried chicken. Put potatoes in the oven, make a salad and you have a meal fit for a king–or at least a Butcher […]

Banana Pancakes–Paleo style!

My customers give me the best tips. One of my customers told me about banana pancakes. I am sorry I can’t remember who it was or I would give him proper credit. He told me he mashed up a banana and mixed eggs with it, and poured them and cooked them and voila–banana pancakes. I […]

As most of you know, the Butcher and I just returned form a respite in Mexico.  If you notice, there were no pictures sent while we were in Mexico.  There are 2 reasons for this.  First, I have an insurance background, you don’t advertise that you are out-of-town, and  you don’t rub it in when […]

Foolproof Baked Ham

I want to go on record as saying this is the easiest, best ham you will ever eat.  Start with a good ham.  At the local meat market your ham will be smoked on premises and will be table ready; However even if you get the ham from the butcher shop you will want to heat it […]

Paleo Cheesecake

For my son’s birthday he decided he wanted cheesecake.  My first thought was that I wanted to be able to eat the cheesecake.  I had already looked at the Walnut Creek Cream Cheese that we carry in our Meat Market.  There was nothing in the ingredients that would keep me from cooking with cream cheese.
