Homemade pizza night was always one of my favorites growing up. The house smelled like fresh bread from making the dough in the bread machine. There’d be flour all over the kitchen counters while we rolled out the dough into perfect crusts and loaded them up with sauce, different kinds of cheese, meats, and veggies. It was always a great opportunity to spend time with our family and friends (and absolutely tasted better than ordering 2 medium pizzas for $10 down the street). You won’t be disappointed throwing these pizzas in the oven, but we like to use the BBQ every chance we get!
Pork belly burnt ends are delicious. We love making these on the Treager Renegade Elite on a lazy Sunday to enjoy before our main course. Burnt ends are typically made from brisket, but we really enjoy this new trend using pork belly instead of Brisket for our burnt ends. They are very succulent, rich, and have great flavor by the end of the cook. These are a great appetizer or snack, but work well in main courses as well. We enjoy pork belly burnt ends over a bed of cilantro rice with a poblano corn salad, guacamole, fresh pico de gallo, and some veggies. Make sure to enjoy with a spicy margarita!
Every year, a dear friend gives us buckets of homegrown apples from her apple trees. She has too many to know what to do with any sends me home with grocery bags filled to the brim with little, crisp apples. We love this recipe because the whole house smells of warm apples and cinnamon by the time you’re finished. [Read more…] about Homemade Apple Cider

There were nights last winter where we’d run inside with rain soaked hair and toss bundles of logs into the fireplace. I’d scatter candles around the house and sometimes leave a window cracked so you could hear the rain. He’d tend to the fire and I’d curl up on the couch with thick, knit socks and listen to blues or folk music. On those nights it felt like we were in the woods somewhere and not sitting in our little beach town. The house smelled like campfire and apple cider and peaches.
