Welcome to my virtual kitchen!

I hope you enjoy your visit here, whether it’s your first time or your 30th. I first started sharing my recipes as Facebook Notes, until my friends began asking how they could share them with their friends; so I gathered my courage and tiptoed into the world of blogging via Tumblr. As interest in my blog started “cooking,” my wonderful hubby set me up at WordPress with my own domain. (All the content from my previous blog moved here as well.) Let me know what you think, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference!

My other hobby, scrapbooking, is also documented at WordPress here.

Southwest Brunswick Stew

This started as a craving for both Brunswick Stew and Pozole Rojo, and [like David Pumpkins and other Fall treasures] became its own thing.

  • 1/2 lb shredded smoked pork
  • 1/2 lb shredded smoked chicken
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 large can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 regular cans hominy
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup barbeque sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • dash of hot sauce (optional)

Place all ingredients in large Dutch oven or slower cooker. Heat on medium-low until cooked through and allow to mellow on low heat if possible. Serve with cornbread if at all possible.
