It turns out that I have gained the Freshman 15. No, I didn’t jump into my trusty DeLorean (Great Scott!) to re-experience the fall of 2000 and my freshman year of college (believe me, it wouldn’t be pretty). Nope – … Continue reading pb&j sorbet

While this isn’t the healthiest version of green beans, I figure if it helps … Continue reading a stately neighbor’s famous green beans
Do I get points for at least starting this post last week? As the world came to terms with what might end up being a pork SHORTAGE in 2013, I honored the pink pig by smothering it with honey, soy and butter. Yum. In my research to find a delicious, easy dinner for my friend and I last week, I came across a honey and butter pork tenderloin recipe. Thinking that it might be just a touch too sweet, I decided that a touch soy sauce would be the perfect balance for the sweet and buttery sauce. I love pork … Continue reading honey soy glazed pork loin
