From Chef Pierino:
For this Uproot pairing I wanted to come out with a more assertive main course but I think this is still a good match of wine and meat. As an added bonus this works really well when prepared in a slow cooker provided that the meat is browned first in hot fat. The inspiration is a ragu Neapolitan style. The pork shoulder can be cooked as an entire piece or cut up into pieces of about 2 inches as for a stew. The Spanish riff comes in with the potatoes which finish up almost like “patatas bravas”. You could serve the finished sauce separately over pasta.
I love using mason jars for a variety of things. From drinking glasses to vases, there’s no denying the fact that they are cheap, look country-chic and have multiple uses.

This quick main-course Italian bread salad makes the most of ripe summer tomatoes. Toasted cubes of stale, crusty loaf absorb the tomatoes’ juices without disintegrating. If you prefer, serve the panzanella with slices of fresh mozzarella instead of ricotta.
I believe everyone should grow at least a few herbs at home. Few things have been as rewarding to me as commandeering a strip of land in my yard and devoting it to a little git of gardening. I started small, so it wouldn’t be overwhelming, but I have since really been able to reap the benefits of my own herb garden. Aside from the calming effect of tending to an herb garden already, many herbs have a use beyond food flavoring and spice, many have a medicinal value and are great to have around the home. With school season starting, I know a few of us are going to be feeling a little under the weather be it from a cold and cough, or a bee sting (some kids just HAVE to poke bees on the playground, don’t they?)

If you’re like me and RVs are not an option, then hotels are where you’ll be staying over the course of your trip. Choosing a hotel can be a scary process if you have no knowledge of the area and are working with a limited budget, but using my helpful tips can take out some of the guesswork in finding acceptable hotels.
