Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Cookie Dough Ice Cream-4

In case you didn’t know, I have a pretty big sweet tooth. And ice cream? Yeah, it’s my weakness. I love dark chocolate and all, but to me ice cream is hard to pass up when I’m craving something sweet. Another go-to has to be Cappello’s Slice & Bake Cookie Dough from Primal Palate’s recipe….

Vanilla Sage Grilled Pork Chop

Vanilla Sage Grilled Pork Chop

I’m going to be honest, I didn’t have a lot of pork chops growing up.  When we did, we usually rocked the Shake n’ Bake method which from what I remember, the flavor was really good (most likely due to chemically enhanced seasonings like MSG) but seemed to be a crap shoot as to whether…
