Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Loin


I usually leave writing this introduction to the recipe until the very end just before I am ready to publish the recipe. I am never quite sure what I am going to write about until I start writing. My kids, the weather, life, or whatever happens to be on the news may make it into…

Grilled Pork Loin Sandwiches


I have been reading on the internet about many people planning for the next round of Covid-19 and/or the flu by buying extra groceries and stocking up. I haven’t really thought of this as we have our little pantry that I use to try and only buy things on sale when I can. We are…

Brown Sugar Dijon Pork Loin


Life is different. We are on day 5 of not going out. I am talking to everyone about the new “normal.” My kids are having a bit of a hard time adjusting to being home, learning online, seeing people (other than family) via the internet, and even when they do go out it is alone….

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Loin


The weather is amazing lately. Over the last two weeks there have been several days where the lake has been battering the shore. The first week up to 20 feet of shore was washed away by the waves. It is so powerful that you cannot believe that you are on the lake and not the…

Slow Roasted Pork Loin


One of the skills I continually work with my kids on is cooking. Last night when I asked my son to put the pork loin in to cook I got a bit of the eye-roll. Not completely because I cut that one off quick. But, when I told him what he had to do to…

Spicy Pork Ramen Noodles


Lots of kids across the south and some in the lower Midwest seem to be heading back to school. This is my second least favorite time of year only to New Year’s Eve. I am very sensitive to the passage of time and reflection on life during these times. It has been only about 2/3…

Pork Medallions Piccata


We are still working our way through the freezer in “No Buy January.” That means quite a few larger cuts of meat that I am finding. I am cutting them down to make smaller cuts such as the pork loin that I bought on sale a month or two ago for $1.59 a pound is…

Teriyaki Slow Cooker Pork Loin


The picture above says Slow Cooker Chicken Teriyaki, it is not. It is a pork loin. I was thinking about how I could also use this on chicken lost my mind and wrote chicken on the picture. In the meantime I was talking and accidentally erased the original picture so I only have this copy…

Bavarian Slow Cooker Pork Loin


Last night at dinner my kids were talking about what meats they liked best. My son said he prefers chicken breast. My daughter said, “Want to know what part of the chicken I like best? Steak.” Yes, we have been eating a great deal of chicken and pork lately. Here is one of our most…

Ginger Glazed Slow Cooker Pork Loin


Last week I posted our menu for the week. It was heavy on slow cooker meals because we are in the crunch time for the end of the school year and all the activities, clubs and classes both of my children are involved in are trying to fit in those last meetings and events. That…
