Roasting A Pork Leg: Cooking With The Todd (& The Toddler)

Roasting A Pork Leg: Cooking With The Todd (& The Toddler). Cooking with children is nothing like what you see on the Food Channel.  In fact, it’s more like Cooking Tourette’s, where every explanatory sentence is followed with “wait!  Don’t touch that honey.  That’s fire.”  But my intrepid spouse decided to try it, so here’s the first in his […]
