I decided I wanted to make chili this weekend but I’m kind of torn on the variety.

And just a few links…

How to Poach Pears – A great walkthrough with fantastic photos. Seems simple enough and the combinations are pretty much endless. (@ David Lebovitz)

Slow-braised Pork Roast with 5 Spice Rub – I think if I had to pick only one method and cut of meat for the rest of my life, it would probably be pork roast or shoulder that is slow cooked. Just doesn’t get much better in my opinion. (@ Blue Kitchen)

Cheeseburger Soup – I’ve never heard of such a thing in my life but I want it immediately. (@ Dine & Dish)

How to Keep Your Herbs Fresh- Ihave a serious problem with fresh herbs. I buy a lot of them. I cook a lot with them, but inevitably have leftovers that go bad. CHECK OUT this solution that Jason came up with for my little issue. Good stuff! (@ Well Done Chef)

Have a good weekend everyone! Leave a comment and maybe win a few books!
