I've never been the type to be squeamish about handling raw meat. I've always enjoyed getting truly hands on when cooking meat because it's the best way of determining the quality of the cuts and if things are progressing properly. When I'm cooking steaks I use my (clean) finger to check doneness and when I'm … Continue reading An Extremely Hands On Experience- Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf
Good grief, it's been almost a year. A year!! SO MUCH has happened in that year, and I wasn't sure if I would ever get to come back. I've wanted to, but it just hasn't been in the cards until now.
