Welcome to the 4th Installment of Just Grilled. The purpose of this series is to introduce to you to some blogger folks out there that I’ve run across that have inspired me, are incredibly interesting, informational and so entertaining that I can’t pass up the chance to introduce them to you . Hopefully you’ll make some new friends along the way.
I’d like to introduce you to Cathy over at Noble Pig. Noble Pig is one of the first blog sites I found when I first started blogging in May. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened up her site and found she and her family were moving to Oregon to start-up their very own vineyard/winery. First of all I love Oregon, I love wine, and especially Oregon Pinot, love Oregon food and knew I would thoroughly enjoy following her journey. Icing on the cake: She can cook up a storm, and shares some really great recipes with beautiful mouth-watering photos . I have added a new folder in my inbox named “pig” and its chocked full of her recipes that I’ve saved. I can’t wait to taste and toast with friends the first bottle of Noble Pig Pinot Noir that I’m able to purchase from them. I’ll be able to say “I knew them when”….
I think my favorite post of hers was her Grilled Chicken. I followed this recipe exactly to her instructions and it was absolutely delicious and the recipe fool-proof. I also loved her Slider’s post, another great “find”.
So with all that said, Cathy, would you step to the microphone please.
