Brown Sugar & Balsamic Glazed Pork in the Crockpot When I was growing up, I remember hating walking in from school or swim practice and seeing the crockpot on the countertop. For some reason, the meal inside of it never really appealed to me. It always ended up being delicious, and I am not quite sure why I felt that way about it. Since I don’t have any children yet, I am fortunate enough to come home to an empty house relatively early, and prep and cook a delicious meal each night. I had intentions on making a pan grilled honey ginger pork tenderloin, but ended up accidentally using up all the honey in the house. Brown Sugar & Balsamic Glazed Pork Ingredients:For the pork: 1 (2 pound) boneless pork tenderloin (or regular pork loin) 1 teaspoon ground sage 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 clove garlic, crushed 1/2 cup water For the Glaze: 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons soy sauce What you’ll do: Combine sage, salt, pepper and garlic.

Creamy Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese This is one from the archives. Seriously. How could I neglect a fantastic mac and cheese recipe that can easily be made on a weeknight AND adapted in just about a million different ways? I was in this amazing kitchen store in the downtown Hanover area, and I happened to stumble upon a great cookbook…all about macaroni and cheese. As I said, this mac and cheese comes together in a snap (making the pasta itself is the longest part). Ah, there’s nothing like the ultimate in comfort food, is there? Creamy Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese Servings: 4 Ingredients 12 ounces macaroni (whatever shape you like) 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 cup yellow onion, minced 12 ounces Emmenthal cheese, shredded 4 ounces crème fraîche Pinch of nutmeg Salt and pepper, to taste 3 tablespoons unsalted butter Instructions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Pancakes for One There are some flavor combinations that just work. You know the classics: peanut butter & chocolate, pb & j, tomatoes & basil, etc.; and then there are those that are somewhat new but are sure to become classics: strawberries & balsamic vinegar, caramel & sea salt, pumpkin spice & coffee! For those of you who made (and hopefully liked!) my Pumpkin Spice Latte Streusel Muffins, these pancakes are an absolute must. I can’t believe this is the first pumpkin pancake recipe I’ve posted, given my obvious adoration of the orange squash. I thought I’d put a twist on the classic Autumn breakfast by adding espresso powder and brewed coffee right into the pumpkin pancake batter in an attempt to replicate the flavor of Starbucks’ popular beverage. Just like the streusel muffins I made, the flavor of these pancakes dances back and forth between pumpkin pie spice and coffee – but neither flavor overpowers the other. Was that long-winded explanation just a garbled tangle of words? Probably. yield: 1 serving

Slowcooker Pork Chops I found this recipe at Eat Cake for Dinner. I love every recipe I have made from that blog! These were so easy and were very tasty! Can't ever have enough easy crock pot recipes! 4 thick-cut pork chops, bone in or boneless 1 can cream of chicken soup 1 pkg. dry ranch dressing mix 4 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 c. chicken broth pepper Combine soup, dressing mix, garlic, and broth. Friday Food Craft Extra Chunky Apple Sauce You will need: 5 medium to large apples, any variety (I typically use at least 3 varieties of apples. For this apple sauce I used Granny Smith, Gala and Pink Lady) 2-4 Tbsp. apple cider or apple juice (you can use water, but I like to always add more flavor and depth) The juice from one clementine (you may substitute lemon, lime or any other citrus type fruit. 2 Tbsp. To make your apple sauce, first peel and core your apples, then dice them up. Place your apples in a pan. I like to serve this warm, and often times some vanilla ice cream manages to hop out of nowhere and perch itself on top. I've also been known to scoop a bit of apple sauce onto pork chops at dinner time.

Meat Recipes White Cheddar Chicken Pasta Cilantro Pesto Grilled Shrimp crockpot chinese! Louisiana Shrimp Casserole Crock Pot Ham. French Silk Pie In high school, for one brief day, I fancied myself a pastry chef. There was no reason for me to believe this bold statement; this was four years before I discovered a passion for baking (and six years before I baked professionally). Even so, as a friend and I were sitting bored on the couch on a Saturday afternoon, I imagined inventing new recipes couldn't be that hard. Up until this point, my only experience with baking was with box mixes, but I didn't let this simple, though glaring, fact deter me. Not when I was craving strawberry pie, anyway. My friend and I set out to engineer our own strawberry pie from scratch. We grabbed a package of frozen strawberries for the filling. As it baked in the oven, the house began to swirl with wonderful scents of butter and strawberries affirming our sincere, but completely wrong belief that baking could be done without recipes or any honest knowledge of how ingredients interact to create sinful treats. The pie immediately sunk. French Silk Pie

Sweet Potato Souffle When I think of Thanksgiving dinner, I immediately think about my beloved Sweet Potato Soufflé. We have never missed a year together (except for this year because I’m going to the beach, so I decided to make it a couple of weeks early and I’ve been savoring the left-overs all week). Maybe it’s not technically a soufflé but if given the choice between a sweet potato soufflé and a sweet potato casserole… soufflé. casserole. soufflé. casserole. I’ll let you decide. (I had to ask my French-speaking husband how to get that cool “é” in there. Have I ever told you how sexy he is?) Start with an amazingly healthy vegetable. I like to roast my sweet potatoes in the oven instead of boiling them. Then you’ll mash them up and add the rest of the ingredients to the filling: butter, salt, brown sugar, eggs and evaporated milk. I almost don’t have words for this topping. Sprinkle it on top of the sweet potato mixture and cook at 350°F for about 25 minutes. Ingredients Instructions Like This Post?

Slow Cooker Pork Chops and Gravy Sometimes you have no idea how popular a recipe will be. The one recipe that you think everyone will love barely gets any attention and the one that you think may not be appealing to the masses ends up being a hit. You never can tell sometimes. Ingredients: 4 bone-in pork chops (or boneless) 1 envelope onion soup mix (1 oz. packet) 1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth (lower sodium) 1 can (10.5 oz.) cream of chicken Soup (low Sodium) 1 envelope dry pork gravy mix (1 oz. packet)1 tsp. garlic powder Note: I like the bone-in pork chops for this recipe. Directions: In a 5-6 quart slow cooker, combine onion soup mix, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and pork gravy mix. Note: I find this works better in an oval slow cooker instead of a round one. Season both sides of the chops with a little bit of garlic powder. Place pork chops into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low about 6-8 hours. After cooking you can serve right away with the gravy that the chops cook in. Enjoy!
