One of our favorite home cooks – who also happens to be a Certified Culinary Professional (CCP) and awfully nice person in general – recently shared with us her favorite way to serve our Applewood Smoked Bacon-Wrapped Pork Filets.  We thought you might like to recreate this meal idea from Ann Hall Every at home and that […]
