Slow-Cooker Cranberry Ginger Chicken 4

Slow-Cooker Cranberry Ginger Chicken What a roller-coaster life has been for me these past few weeks! Months, even… Everything has been amazingly good, but equally taxing! There are some stories to tell you, but I’ll have to get to the slowly. Right now, I feel like my writing to you […]


Roast Beef and Sweet Citrus Salad 2

UPC’s Roast Beef and Sweet Citrus Salad There’s something special about slow-cooked meat. It’s really easy to make, and really easy to time for completion. It’s both demanding and forgiving: demanding in that you must plan enough time or it won’t work, and forgiving in that as long as you […]

What’s For Lunch? Pulled Pork and Avocado Salad

UPC’s Pulled Pork I really enjoy pulled pork. I like the beef and chicken versions of the dish too: Shredded Beef, and Jerk Chicken (as well as all of the other names for those dishes). It’s flavorful, easy to eat, and easy to re-use as a portion of another dish! […]
