Slow Cooked Asian Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is one of my favourite American discoveries! But we haven't ever made it at home before, so I did some searching and found a great looking recipe from the lads at SortedFood.  I tweaked it a little, to change some ingredients I wasn't so keen on, and hubby and I tried making it… Continue reading Slow Cooked Asian Pulled Pork

Penny was much more underweight than I realised - she… Continue reading Ninja Kitten!

We only noticed them by chance, as we were walking Jasper, and neither of us had any idea what to do. But we knew we needed… Continue reading Itty Bitty Kitties!
