Fido “Ice Cream” cookie sandwiches – Dobby Approved

The dog days of summer are upon us. I can’t tell you how many tubs/boxes of ice cream the bf and I have gone through. While this is an awesome way to beat the heat, we felt bad that we couldn’t share our ice cream with our furbaby Dobby. Dogs need a way to cool down too! Sure I made him those frozen patriotic treat for July 4th, but I wanted to share some ice cream with him too. I know, spoiled pup.   Read more

Vietnamese Style Pork Chop

I love Vietnamese food. I eat it almost every weekend, especially pho (c’mon I live in freezing cold MN). BUT…My favorite Vietnamese dish has to be Com Tom (broken rice) with grilled pork chop topped off with a crispy egg. Though I love the dish I have never attempt to make it at home. Turned out to be easier than I thought. The pork chop is marinated for 1-2 days in a special sauce made of lemongrass, stinky fish sauce, and other Asian flavors. Since I’m the one cooking it, I’m careful to keep my eyes on the pork so it don’t dry out and I make the perfect egg to go on top. Cause if you overcook your pork or egg…might as well throw the whole thing away! Ammmmirittee…
