I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Osso Buco Style Pork

Osso buco is traditionally made with veal but this recipe is very tasty, as well as economical.

2 lbs diced stewing pork
2 tbsps flour
2 tbsps olive oil
salt & pepper  
1/4 tsp celery seed
2  sliced onions
3 diced carrots
28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 cup water
1 cup white wine
1 lemon
Bouquet garni:   bay leaf, sprig rosemary, fresh basil

Make sure the pieces of pork are uniform in size. Using a bag (I used a waxed cereal bag) toss the meat with flour, salt, pepper and celery seed.

Take a large skillet and heat oil.  Lightly brown meat, then add onions.

  Cook until translucent and add carrots, canned tomatoes and bouquet garni (take a piece of cheesecloth or a coffee filter and tie up the herbs in it with a piece of string).

 Cook 2-3 minutes.  Add tomato paste, water, wine, juice and zest of lemon.

Cover and simmer for 2 hours. When done remove bag of herbs. Serve with rice and sprinkle with parsley.

Serves 4-5
