Whole Suckling Pig Recipe

Ever since I’ve had a Whole Suckling Pig at The Provincial, I’ve always had this ambition to cook a whole pig at home… and last weekend my wish came true!!

Epic Meal Time Inspired Feast

Have you seen the Epic Meal Time YouTube Channel? I’ve only been introduced to this by one of hubby’s friends recently – when a bunch of guys came over to help hubby with some work in our backyard, they specifically asked if I could prepare an “Epic Meal Time” dinner feast for them once they’ve finished working hard. I had no idea what he was talking about, but I said “ok” anyway. He gave me two clues “meat” and “quantity”.. I still went “OK” without doing my research on the internet, lol. So, just based on what I was told … Continue reading Epic Meal Time Inspired Feast
