The Gift of Giving

I wanted to take a few moments to tell all my readers a story, given the holiday season that is upon us. It doesn't have anything to do with food, diets, nutrition or health. Then again, if mental health counts, maybe it does. This post is deeply personal and contains some very private information that I am choosing to make public in the event that it should help another. After all, isn't that what the holidays are about?

I knew nothing then of what this little baby would do to my life,
but I was in for quite the ride.

Basil Chicken with Sun Dried Tomato & Asiago Creme and Crispy Prosciutto




One of my favorite restaurants here in town has this wonderful pasta dish that features crispy prosciutto on the top. Now I can't eat the pasta, but the prosciutto? That's another story.
If you've never had prosciutto, you're missing out hugely. It's not bacon. It's more ham-like. It's a slow cured, bone-in pork leg; the good part of the leg-- the meaty rear thigh. It's salty and absolutely savory and has a wonderful texture thanks to ample fat.

With fall coming, I figured I'd do a hearty recipe for you all. Well, that and I had a terrible craving for meatloaf a few days ago. I decided on a barbecue meatloaf, and the results couldn't have been better!
