For Mother’s Day weekend, although I wasn’t able to be with my Momma, I know she would have loved these tasty wraps. The smokey roasted turkey, and the sweet and tangy spiced apple butter spread remind me a little bit like the holidays and cooking in the kitchen together. The creamy brie and the crisp apple are the perfect fillings.

Asian Pulled Pork Sliders with Slaw_LYK4

These past couple of days I was up in Mammoth with my man and his family. While we didn’t get much relaxation time, we sure did get in a ton of mountain time, snowboarding some really amazing snow, on brisk but glorious sunny days. It was just the most beautiful setting to romp around in, apart from work and out of the kitchen for a hot sec.
